Back in 2014, the Amity Boys Lacrosse Team was smoking hot, with great names like Choiniere, Uscilla, Burns, Sember, Coassin, King, Cala, Sullivan, Pignataro, DiMauro and Robinson.

Many of these fine athletes are now playing Lacrosse in colleges and universities across the USA.

Sadly, we were informed today that Orange native Damon Robinson (#17), who also wrestled at Amity, is suffering severe brain damage in a Neurological Intensive Care Unit after being assaulted by a group of people over the weekend. (He lives in Orlando, Fla)

Damon has been in and out of consciousness and every day is a struggle as he fights through this challenge.

Former classmate, Hannah Babbitz started a Gofundme page to help the Robinson family with the cost of his hospital care.

“It is times like these we call upon friends for help and support and the Robinson family greatly appreciates both. Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, and contributions to the family during this difficult time,” Babbitz wrote on the page.

You Can Still Help Fire Victim Josh Warner

Josh and Harley in happier days.

Josh and Harley in happier times.

On Friday night the friends of Josh Warner held a fundraiser for him at the Orange Ale House.

Because I had a very busy day, dealing with a flat tire first thing in the morning then taking care of my granddaughter until 6 p.m. I simply forgot to top the site with the story and many readers have expressed their dismay at missing the event.

So, here’s the story AND a way that you can still help if you wish.

On February 18, Josh Warner lost all of his possessions but most importantly his best friend and amazing dog Harley in a house fire.

Harley was Josh’s world, he loved that dog more than anything.

Not only is Josh an incredible and loving person but he is also an amazingly hardworking man.

Those of you who know him can agree that there isn’t one thing josh owned that he didn’t work that extra mile to get.

With no insurance, this benefit will raise money to put him back on his feet and get back everything he lost (except, of course Harley – he was irreplaceable)

Josh’s friends have set up a gofundme page where you can donate money to help him out.

It’s never too late to help go to http://www.gofundme.com/maplesfirefund
