Welcome to “News & Notes,” where we look at the happenings here in Westchester County…
WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — December 30, 2019 — We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season; apparently, I was naughty in 2019, as Santa jammed enough coal in my stocking to heat all of Katonah…
Once again, I have out smarted myself by making my New Year’s resolution, not to make any resolutions, just saying that broke the resolution, so please sit back and enjoy this week’s “resolution free” edition of “News & Notes.”
My fellow Lions at the Bedford Hills Lions Club are sponsoring a Coat Drive that was kicked off at the Tree Lighting Ceremony at the Bedford Hills Train Station Saturday December 7.

The gang at John Jay Homestead is offering a “Historic House Tour for Families” every Saturday morning at 11 a.m. through January 25. What was life like 200 years ago, no I was not around…compare your everyday life with the way the Jay family lived in the early 1800s. This 25-minute tour of the historic house, designed for families with children 10 and under, will focus on the lack of modern conveniences and its impact on everyday life through examining objects such as chamber pots and open-hearth toasters.
