Dominican University to honor Alan Seidman at Oct. 30 Grand Reception

Dominican University New York will honor CCA Executive Director Alan Seidman and the Beckerle family of Beckerle Lumber Supply Co. at the university’s 49th Annual Grand Reception.  The event takes place 12:30-4:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 30 at the Old Tappan Manor in Tappan, N.J.

The honorees were chosen for their outstanding professional leadership, community involvement, and philanthropic works.

As a lifelong Hudson Valley resident, Seidman  has been involved in countless community activities. He is a past Chair of the Orange County Legislature and Past President of Temple Beth Jacob in Newburgh.  He was also officer of the Cornwall Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Highland Engine Co #1, and a first responder with American Red Cross on 9-11.

The Beckerle family operates four branches of Beckerle Lumber Supply Co. – in Spring Valley, Congers, Orangeburg and Haverstraw – more than any other building materials supplier in Rockland County.  Over the past 80 years, the family has built a successful business by providing quality products, knowledgeable advice, and attentive services.  Through three generations of Beckerle leadership, the family has been involved in the community with a legacy of service and philanthropy. As just one example, company owners and employees have volunteered for Meals on Wheels for more than 20 years.

Dominican University New York invites all community members to join the University in celebrating the honorees and thanking them for their service.  Tickets and sponsorships can be purchased here.  For more information contact or call 845-848-7406.
