Four-time World Series champion and New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi will attend a charity event at the Harrison Library on Jan. 29.
During a casual meeting last Halloween, as members of the Harrison Public Library Foundation (HPLF) discussed ways to build donations to renovate the downtown library, opportunity literally knocked on the door.
As committee member Ross Halperin welcomed a group of trick-or-treaters, he spotted none other than New York Yankees Manager Joe Girardi.
"We were standing there, and (Ross) said 'I think that's Joe Girardi standing in my driveway'," said Nancy Rieger, who is also on the HPLF committee. "It was so funny, we were just talking about him."
