Alice V. Feeley of Dobbs Ferry will be sworn into office as Greenburgh's second Poet Laureate for a two year-term of service on Wed evening, May 26th at 7:30 PM at Greenburgh Town Hall.

Feeley’s poems have appeared in the magazines America, POET, Inkwell and in the anthology Let the Poets Speak. She was the 1st place winner of Greenburgh’s 2003 poetry contest and her work has been selected for inclusion in five subsequent editions of the publication. She is a founding member of Greenburgh’s Poetry Caravan.

Feeley is chaplain in the Pastoral Care Department of St. Cabrini Nursing Home in Dobbs Ferry.

At Wednesday's Town Board meeting there will be a showing of a video featuring interviews with veterans, conducted by Alan Hochberg, Steve Wittenberg and Frank Musantry of our veterans advisory committee. The ambitious Greenburgh Living History Project is an ongoing effort. We're trying to interview many Greenburgh residents who fought for our country during different wars. The interviews will be archived at the library and given to schools.


Fed Up With Feiner said...

That's very nice but Town Board meetings should be for Town business, not entertainment. I noticed that the last couple of meetings very little business was being discussed as most of the meetings were taken up by presentations and awards. I'll assume that this is Feiner's twisted idea of open government - delay people long enough and they will go away.

These awards and presentations are great but they should not delay business. When you have public hearings applicants are paying attorneys and other professionals to sit through hours of this nonsense while be charged steep hourly rates.

To add insult to injury, the Town Board went into Executive Session in the middle of a Town Board meeting. Why not take care of this business prior to the meeting or at the end of the meeting - again, you are inconveniencing the public and obviously it's deliberate.
