The Rye Newcomers and Neighbors Club has elected Sharon Mantel as Co-President. She replaces Silvat Malik who resigned after 2 years of service in the role.
"We thank Silvat for her leadership, and welcome Sharon to her new position. Sharon's energy and imagination as events coordinator have been critical components of our recent success, and we're delighted she has agreed to expand her commitment to our club," said Susan Watson, who continues as RNNC Co-President.
Sharon and her husband Brad joined Rye Newcomers in 2016 after relocating from Lower Manhattan. Sharon grew up near Boston and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania. She spent 10 years as a marketing executive with American Express before becoming a full-time Mom to sons Jackson, 5, and Kyle, 3.
"Brad and I love the city spirit and strong sense of community in Rye, and we're grateful for the friends we've made through RNNC. We are busy meeting our neighbors in Rye Gardens, exploring hiking trails and local restaurants," commented Sharon.
