Aisling Irish Community Center to Honor Clive Anderson of Pelham Funeral Home on September 29 at Dinner Dance Gala
(August 18, 2017 - Pelham, NY) The Aisling Irish Community Center has proudly announced that it will honor Clive J. Anderson, Funeral Director and Proprietor of Pelham Funeral Home, as one of its 2017 Honorees at its Annual Dinner Dance on Friday September 29 at Mulino’s at Lake Isle in Eastchester, NY.
As one of the largest Irish immigrant resource centers in the tri-state area and a main provider of educational, cultural and welfare services for the elderly and those in need, Aisling Irish Community Center continues to lead the way in enhancing the quality of life of not only those in the Irish community, but above and beyond. The Center has a weekly night run where volunteers feed the homeless on the streets of New York; it offers a senior program which includes speakers, lunch and an exercise program; it organizes classes at the center to educate people in technology, all this in addition to helping Irish immigrants get jobs and accommodations; teach Irish dancing and Irish language, and many cultural classes. Every year it proudly acknowledges individuals who rise above the rest in sharing the same commitment of sacrifice, compassion and care. This year Clive Anderson is one of those special honorees.
According to Orla Kelleher, Executive Director of Aisling, “Clive is a very talented and caring individual who approaches his profession not as a job, but rather as a calling to serve others in their time of need.” People who know Clive Anderson, knows that he applies this compassion to help people in virtually every part of his life. His contribution to his community includes membership in the Pelham Civic Association, the Rotary Club of the Pelhams, and sits on the Board of Directors of The Danny Fund - the organization assisting children with catastrophic illnesses. It’s no wonder he is the recipient of several awards, being recognized by the Irish Echo “40 under 40” for his contributions to the Irish community and has also been an aide to the Grand-Marshal of the Irish Business Organization on St. Patrick’s Day.
