Welcome to “News & Notes,” where we look at the happenings here in Westchester County…
WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — July 1 2019 — We are on our way to the beaches of old Cape Cod for our annual family vacation. Sunburn, soggy clothes, and sandy sandwiches, can’t wait…if I’m not eaten by a shark please enjoy this week’s “Vacation is all I ever wanted” edition of “News & Notes.”
For a hot time here’s a cool idea…on July 11 at 7p.m. there is a free family concert of rhythm & blues, funk and rock ‘n roll featuring The Mulligans at the Katonah Park Field by the Katonah Park Pool. Sponsored by the Katonah Memorial Park Association, in cooperation with the Bedford Recreation & Parks Department.
Don’t tell my wife but it is time for the annual Katonah Sales days on July 19 and 20. Some of the most unique stores in Westchester are having a giant tag sale on Katonah Avenue …. stroll along the avenue for bargains and family fun!
I just love block parties, so count me in for the Katonah Museum of Art’s event on July 13 from 6 to 8 p.m., there will be drinks, gourmet food trucks and music, just hope I don’t break anything…
Congratulations to our friend Bedford Town Clerk Boo Fumagalli as she has been voted in by her peers as the second vice president of the New York State Town Clerks Association, way to go Boo.
