WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY —  October 30, 2019 — Welcome to “News & Notes,” where we look at the happenings here in Westchester County…

It appears that my children’s favorite question “How do we do this? Dad” is now being answered, more times than not, by Google. Oh, well, I guess it gives me more time to write this week’s “Missing those quizzes” edition of “News & Notes.”

The Katonah Library is hosting their annual Harvest Table Cocktail Party and Auction Saturday, November 2, from 7:30-11 p.m., we always get a kick out of imbibing in a library, must sip quietly.

More library news, Katonah native John Donohue will present slides from “All the Restaurants in New York” and talk about his work with Julia Sexton, the editor-in-chief of “Edible Westchester,” on November 8, 7:30 to 9 p.m.  This free event is cosponsored by the Katonah Village Improvement Society and the Katonah Village Library.  Refreshments will be provided.

The internationally-acclaimed Music from Copeland House ensemble will relocate to John Jay Homestead in Katonah for the 2019-20 season, the first performance is set for November 3.  The move is due to Merestead’s closure for renovations.

A congratulations shout out to our good friend Caroline Raue as she was recently inducted into the Fox Lane Hall of Fame in cross country/track, joining Caroline were three other athletes:  Danny Fontana football/baseball, Michelle Kowalski soccer, Nyasha Miller volleyball/basketball and coach Vincent Minotti Sr.

Our friends at Manhattanville College are holding their annual sports business career fair on Friday, November 22.  This event was developed by the Manhattanville Sport Business Management Degree Program, and is being offered to anyone interested in pursuing a career in the $500 billion sport business industry.  More than 30 hiring managers will be on hand, including numerous sports teams, leagues associations and agencies.

Bedford Playhouse presents “The Pollinators” from their Environmental Film Series on Monday November 4 at 7:00 p.m. in partnership with Bedford 2020 and The Weeden Foundation.  Following the screening there will be a panel discussion with Director, Peter Nelson and Stone Barns Farm Manager, Jack Algiere, moderated by Kim Eireman, author, horticulturalist and founder of EcoBeneficial.

My wife and I recently saw a wonderful show “An American in Paris” at the Westchester Broadway Theatre, this lavish production runs through November 24, a good time was had by all.

As this year flies by, I can’t believe I am already mentioning the annual Katonah Elementary School Holiday Boutique set for November 23. 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with so many fun things for the whole family.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, the American Legion of Katonah will be raffling a turkey every hour from Noon until 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 23.  Stop in to the Jay Street location, enjoy a cold draft, buy a raffle ticket and support our veterans.

The good folks at the Paramount Hudson Valley Theatre in Peekskill present “Almost Queen,” on November 16 at 8 p.m.  The most authentic Queen live show since the days of Queen themselves.  A deliberate 4 piece band, “Almost Queen” delivers a live show consisting of signature four-part harmonies and genuine costumes while recapturing the live energy that is the ultimate Queen experience.

The Mount Kisco Village Board has approved the creation of the Suzanne Grant Garden in honor of this beloved community member who recently passed away, a well deserved honor.

We hope everyone will take time on November 11 to remember and honor our veterans, we can never thank you enough…
