SNOW ANGELS WANTED...CONGRATULATIONS NED McCORMACK, BD WORK SESSION, FUN EVENTS
Release Date: December 11, 2009
SNOW ANGELS WANTED--If you are interested in volunteering some time this winter helping a senior citizen or disabled resident shovel their driveways (or walkway) after it snows - please e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Over 18 years ago I formed the Greenburgh snow angels program. Volunteers help their neighbors. We're looking for volunteers who will help seniors/disabled residents at no cost. We are also looking for names of people who would be willing to assist for a fee. During the winter months I receive a number of calls after each snow storm from residents who need help.
If you are a senior citizen with special needs or a disabled resident and want to be added to the list of people we will try to find snow angels for - please e mail me.
Congratulations to Edwin "Ned" McCormack on being appointed by County Executive-elect Rob Astorino to head up the new County Executive's communication team. Ned has served as a leader of the Mayfair-Knollwood Civic Association. He is a former journalist. He is an excellent choice!
Next Tuesday's work session begins at 9:15 AM at Town Hall. The work session will be devoted to the 2010 town budget. The Town Board will hold our third and final budget hearing on Tuesday evening at 8:15 PM.
