Welcome to “News & Notes,” where we look at the happenings here in Westchester County…
WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — February 13, 2020 —Here are some of my fun February facts… The Groundhog will miss its shadow; I will eat too much at our friends’ Super Bowl party; my wife will not be too happy with the stale candy I give her for Valentine’s Day, and I will get an extra cold, snowy day this leap year to write this week’s “Funky February” edition of “News & Notes.”
Did you know that there is a cancer support group run by Gilda’s Club that meets at the Bedford Playhouse on alternate Wednesdays from 10 to 11 a.m. with the next one set for February 19 and open to all.

I just returned from the team at Eternita Spa in Somers and feel like a new person, my wife is so happy…they are outstanding in both massage therapy and Active Isolated Stretching (AIS). a dynamic system for improving your flexibility and overall well-being. The benefits of stretching include enhancing exercise performance, reduce muscle tension and fatigue, promote energy, reduce injury and improves range of motion.
It’s time to come in out of the cold and into the Katonah Village Library for their annual Chili Cook-Off on February 28 at 6 p.m. Come on by to sample and vote on your favorite chili while you enjoy great live music and see old friends and neighbors. Chili with all the fixins’, beer & wine and awesome deserts are included. We just love eating and drinking at the library and the good news is that all my late book fines are paid up…
