Specifically, Strong was first introduced to the organization when she was a member of the Los Altos Auxiliary, which raises funds for the children and teens who are in residential treatment at Hathaway-Sycamoresâ€™ El Nido campus in Altadena.â€œAnnsley and George Strong are clearly committed to helping others, and Hathaway-Sycamores is unquestionably fortunate that theyâ€™ve devoted so much of their time, talents, and generosity to benefit the children and families we serve. They truly are an inspirational couple, said Hathaway-Sycamoresâ€™ President and CEO William Martone.Annsley Strong â€“ along with her husband George Strong, Jr. â€“ has been actively involved in Hathaway Sycamores for many years. She served on the agencyâ€™s Board of Directors for 13 years and held the position of Board Chair from 2006 to 2008. She currently serves on Hathaway-Sycamoresâ€™ Advisory Board, and is a member of the agencyâ€™s Strategic Planning Committee.The event was chaired by Hathaway-Sycamoresâ€™ Advisory Board member Ken Goldstein, as well as Michael Galper, Chair of the Board, who recalled his own childhood baseball dreams to the gathered audience, saying he would have been a Dodger, except that he â€œcouldnâ€™t hit the curve ball. Or the fast ball. Or the slider.â€Major corporate sponsors of the event included Morrison & Foerster LLP; Southern California Gas/Sempra Energy; The Capital Group; Wells Fargo; KCB Management; Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, LLP; Pelican Hill; Lucas Horsfall; and Earthlink.Hathaway-Sycamores Child and Family Services is an accredited mental health and welfare agency with 11 locations throughout Southern California, licensed by the Community Care Licensing Division of the California Department of Social Services and is certified by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health.More information is available at http://www.hathaway-sycamores.org/.

THE Guyana Golf Association (GGA) announced that several hundred golf clubs and other equipment were part of a contribution to the development of the sport in Guyana from Bob Maibusch, owner of Pine Grove Springs Golf Course in New Hampshire, USA. Maibusch was contacted by GGA president Aleem Hussain. According to the president, the foreign pro golfer readily agreed to assist in the growth of the game; especially in light of the recent attention being given by women and children since the opening of the Nexgen Golf Academy & Driving Range.Bob and his daughter are heavily involved in the teaching, designing and operations of Golf courses around the United States andPro golfer and owner of Pine Grove Springs Golf Course in New Hampshire, USA, Bob Maibuschinstantly agreed to partner with the GGA in his words “for the love of the game”.Recently a number of clubs, balls, and other pieces of equipment were collected and shipped through the sterling efforts of Aleena and Bill Knight of New York and is expected to arrive in Guyana by month-end.Hussain said that the equipment was much needed and would supplement the previous sets contributed by Danny Ramnarain and Anwar ‘Buddy’ Shaffie, Colin Ming, and the Shafura Hussain Foundation over the past few months.“With the help of so many people, we are now in a strong position to provide equipment, balls and training for hundreds of students and newcomers to the sport,” said Hussain.Hussain said that the move also plays a role in golf development as recent talks with Sport Minister Charles Ramson Jr were fruitful. According to Hussain the minister acknowledged that golf is one of the sports which allow for social distancing, but at the same time still creates a fun outdoor atmosphere, especially for children who have their extracurricular lives halted by the COVID-19 pandemic.The Academy & Driving Range on Woolford Avenue is open from 08:00hrs to 17:00hrs daily with accommodation being provided for up to 20 persons per hour in accordance with social-distancing requirements.
