JUST BECAUSE IT IS FREE DOESN'T MEAN ITS NOT FANTASTIC!
Release Date: September 27, 2009

In recent months I have been posting info about exciting & fun  programs. Many of the events are featured, in detail, on www.rivertownsguide.com.
Some of these fun activities are free or very inexpensive. Free does not mean poor quality.
Tonight, for example, I attended the outdoor concert sponsored by the village of Elmsford at DeLuca Park. The concert featured Charlie Lagond & Friends (Omar Hakim, Darryl Tookes, Gene Torres, Yayoi Ikawa, Armand Hirsch). The program was fantastic --the quality of the music outstanding.
These musicians have performed at Presidential inauguration balls and have performed with artists such as CHuck Mangione, the Jackson Five, The Temptations, The Spinners, Natalie Cole, Mariah Carey, Madonna, David Bowie, Sting, Quincy Jones, etc...
The stage lighting added to the event. Everyone who attended had a great time. By the way--Charlie Lagond has a music school "Lagond Music School" in Elmsford.
The village of Elmsford deserves much praise for sponsoring such a high quality program.  Many residents of unincorporated Greenburgh also enjoyed the event.
I hope that next year we can organize a town-wide weekend fun activities calendar--coordinating, among the river villages and town fun events so the dates don't conflict with each other. Each of the participating communities should help publicize all the programs neighboring communities sponsor.
PLEASE TRY TO ATTEND SOME OF THE UPCOMING EVENTS HELD IN YOUR BACK YARD. YOU WON"T BE DISAPPOINTED.
PAUL FEINER
