A Packed House for Guns Down and George McKinnis
A packed house gathered to honor Judge George C. McKinnis with a Lifetime of Community Service Award at the Bronxville Field Club on the evening of May 10th.  Proceeds of the event, which included a live and silent auction, went to graduates of the Coming Home Program at The Reformed Church of Bronxville.  The event was put on by the Bronxville Rotary Club and The Reformed Church. 
The Coming Home Program at The Reformed Church assists and mentors those citizens re-entering our society following incarceration.  A significant portion of the benefit’s proceeds will go to the 501c3 organization known as Guns Down (www.gunsdown.org), which was founded by recent Coming Home graduate Frantz Michel.  Guns Down is dedicated to providing at risk youth and the formerly incarcerated with personal development and job readiness skills as alternatives to drugs, gangs, gun violence and crime. Bronxville Rotary Club members will play a continuing advisory role to help Guns Down grow, develop, and achieve sustainability.
