holiday lights donated...toy drive...logs to be supermarket to start construction...court revenues

E HARTSDALE AVE HOLIDAY LIGHTS--Westchester Greenhouse will be donating 15 wreaths with bows & lights to decorate E Hartsdale Ave. The lights should be installed on telephone poles by this weekend. We appreciate the donation! Sarah Bracey White, who heads our arts & culture committee, is organizing volunteers to bring some more holiday spirit to the avenue. Attractive ribbons will also be placed on the poles.

Christ Temple is organizing a toy drive, clothing drive for the homeless and for those who are less fortunate in the community. Please call 914 948 4596. The church is located at 25 Oak Street, White Plains (off Manhattan Ave). The church is looking for new toys/clothing and gifts will be tax deductible.

LOG PILE UPDATE (SPRAIN/DOBBS FERRY ROAD)---I received a letter from William Gordon, Acting Regional Director for the NYS Department of Transportation today regarding the logs that are stored on NYS Department of Transportation property along Sprain Brook Parkway. This debris was generated as a result of the storms late last winter that brought down many trees. According to Mr. Gordon “we are in the process of having a contract approved to remove the logs. Therefore, a meeting with state lawmakers will not be necessary. Hopefully, our contract will be approved in the near future and the work can be completed early this winter.” I had asked for a meeting with elected officials, NYS DOT representatives and the town. I have been working with Senator Andrea Stewart Cousins on this matter and want to also thank her for her efforts.
