Release Date: May 27, 2016
TOURS OF GREENBURGH TOWN HALL OFFERED –CHILDREN GET TO PRODUCE AND TAPE THEIR OWN PUBLIC SERVICE TV ANNOUNCEMENT DURING TOUR
WATCH CUB SCOUT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT ON DANGERS OF STRANGER DANGER BY VIEWING THE FOLLOWING LINK
One of our goals is to encourage every resident (no matter how old or young) to get involved in their government. I’m more than happy to take children on tours of Greenburgh Town Hall and to talk to them about the services offered and some of the issues we face. To make the tour more exciting for children we invite students to produce and tape a public service announcement that airs on local public service TV—channel 75, cablevision and 34 Fios. This public service announcement will be aired in between regularly scheduled programming. The PSA’s are taped during the tour.
"A group of Cub Scouts from Pack 67 in Hartsdale recently toured the Greenburgh Town Hall and got to see how our local government works. Pack 67 meets on Fridays at Highview School. If your son is age 6 or older, he is eligible to join his local Pack. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you enjoy this video of Christopher, Jake, Logan, Nathan, Nicholas and Sean discussing strategies for being careful around strangers."
