CoveCare Center created quite a “buzz” on Wednesday, May 17th, when 15 teams gathered at Centennial Golf Club for some friendly competition and teambuilding to out spell each other for the 1st Place Championship.

CEO Eric Toth kicked off the evening by introducing Putnam County Executive Kevin Byrne, who read the first round of words to the lively crowd. Veteran emcee Bill Hammond of Edward Jones, and CoveCare Center VP of Programs Krista Zanfardino then took over to lead the teams through almost nine rounds of words and eliminations before the remaining five teams entered the championship challenge.

Patterson Rotary’s “Team F-ing Bees” claimed the 1st Place Trophy


Nuvance Health “Team New-Bees”, claimed the 2nd Place Trophy.


CoveCare Center's Mental Health Clinic Team "The Honey Makers" was once again awarded the coveted Most Enthusiastic Team Trophy.

Other teams who participated at the Bee included Friends of the Mahopac Library, The Spellbinders 1 & 2, Hudson Valley Credit Union, PCSB Bank, Carmel/Brewster Flower Club, Search for Change, Brewster Chamber of Commerce and Brewster Rotary.

Many thanks to all of our sponsors, teams and volunteers for being a part of this great evening!

Prevention Inspiring Art

Our Prevention Team works diligently in the Putnam County schools, implementing Evidence-Based Curriculums to prevent substance and alcohol use and teach social and emotional learning skills. They also inspire art from the students they work with and were touched to receive this beautiful piece from a Mahopac student as a “thank you” for what they do. “This is beyond moving to us”, commented Barbara Naccari-Mueller, CoveCare Prevention Educator. “Gestures like these motivates us to keep reaching students.”

Table Talk Tuesday

Our Prevention Team hosted Table Talk Tuesday for the second year in a row with the intent of strengthening family connections and communication.
Families came together and enjoyed a delicious dinner, conversation and games.
Special thanks to Town Square Pizza Cafe in Patterson and Gaetano's Pizza & Cafe in Brewster for being so accommodating and supportive. Their extended efforts and excellent food helped make this event a success.


“CoveCare provides a tremendous amount of mental health services for the people who live in and around Putnam County,” said Byrne. “I am proud to announce that, this past legislative session, we were able to identify and secure funding to assist CoveCare in moving forward with several capital improvements needed in their Carmel facility. I am eager to see them complete their plans to make improvements that will enhance soundproofing for client privacy, and update both the facility’s flooring and bathrooms. Mental health care is health care, and it is critical we provide workers and patients with safe and modern working conditions.”
