OSSINING — Although many already believe it, now it’s official – for one day, at least: Ossining is Dan Ricci’s town.
Prior to Thursday’s Exceptional Seniors Game at Ossining, village mayor Victoria Gearity surprised the longtime girls basketball coach with a proclamation that Apr. 10, 2015 will be known as “Daniel Ricci Day” in the village of Ossining. Ricci received a plaque of the proclamation and will have all of Friday named after him.
“Through his hard word and accomplishments Daniel has brought both pride and recognition to the members of the girls basketball team, the Ossining school district and the Ossining community,” reads an excerpt from the plaque, which is pictured to the right.
