Velocity Track Club New York Highlights
Velocity Track Club is truly Bless!
After training since July for the AAU
(Amateur Athletic Union) XC (Cross
Country) National Championship
in Tallahassee, Florida. We were
able to travel to Florida during the
pandemic and returned with no one
catching COVID 19! We followed the
New York Travel Advisory Protocol
(Such travelers must, upon arrival
in New York, quarantine according
to Department of Health guidelines,
for a minimum of three days, measured
from time of arrival, and on
day 4 may seek a diagnostic test to
exit quarantine). Both tests returned
negative. God is Good!
On Saturday, December 5th we
had seven athletes compete in the
AAU XC National Championship.
There were over 1,000 athletes from
throughout the country present. The
course was fast, and the meet was
well organized. They ensured athletes
and spectators wore face covering
and took their temperature. All
athletes received AAU National Tshirts

If funeral homes were all the same,
Ours wouldn’t be the family choice
The families of our community so often choose our funeral home. Some come to us to pre-plan
arrangements because we offer all the options and choices they desire. Others come to us at their
time of need seeking guidance, support and the certainty of a funeral service that is correct in
every way. Should your family fi nd itself in need of our services, we hope you’ll make the choice so
many in our community have.
