Ed Sweeney Scholarship Fund

 24-November-2022

The Ed Sweeney Scholarship Fund is accepting contributions to continue the effort of Mr. Ed Sweeney's in supporting the Student of Bogota.  Starting in 2021 this is an extension of the work Mr. Sweeney provided with the scholarships given to the graduates of Bogota High School to further their education in Business and Financial studies.
 Owner of the New Horizon Financial Corporation Mr. Sweeney is known for his work with the Students of Bogota. Using New Horizon as an extra classroom he trained and mentored many Bogota High School Seniors, while introducing them into the world of Finance. Some of his proteges would stay with him at new Horizons, while others would move on to start careers on their own. He was elected as a Bogota Citizen of the Year, an honor he cherished and was excited to receive.  
  One of the biggest parts of Mr. Sweeney legacy will be his devotion to the Student, Athletes of Bogota. From his sponsoring of Little League teams, to coaching St. Joseph's basketball and his donations to the Bogota High School Sports and Academic with his scholarship programs.  Mr. Sweeney was a constant fixture at many Varsity Home games.  Either stationed at the East End Zone of Feigel Field, or in the Front row at Speary Gym. Ed would always be available to talk or just say hello. He would allow a brief question about businesses, as long as it did not distract him from watching Bucs player during their games.
  To contribute to the Ed Sweeney Scholarship Fund donations ca be sent to:

Trinity Food Drive

 21-November-2022
   On Saturday-19-November the Trinity Lutheran Church in Bogota held their annual Turkey and Food Drive. Over 300lbs of frozen turkeys were donated to the church. There were also a number of boxes of other food items donated that day. Collected items will be given to the St. Joseph food bank, to assist them in their effort to provide meals for those families in need.  This year Trinity Church has actively work with St. Joseph to maintain a supply of items for their food bank. In gratitude St. Joseph's nominated Trinty Lutheran as a "Local Hero" to Congressman Josh Gottheimer, who represents Bogota in New Jersey's 5th Congressional district.  Durning the food drive a representative from Congressman Gottheimer presented Pastor Lisa Holliday with a certificate recognizing Trinity Church's Outstanding and Invaluable service to the Borough of Bogota and surrounding communities.
  Helping collect the donated items that were brought to the church were members of the congregation, including a number of young Student. Trinity Lutheran Church will still be collecting items for the St. Joseph's Food Bank. Donations wanted for December are canned fruit and instant mashed potatoes. These items can be dropped off at the Trinity Lutheran Church offices during regular business hours. Items can be given before, or after, Sunday services in the community room. Trinity Lutheran Church is located at 167 Palisade Ave. Bogota NJ. For more information on how to help with their food collect please visit their website at: www.telcbogota.org
