PROGRESS BEING MADE ON DOGPARK…
Eileen Fleming, President of Buddy’s BARKING LOT DOGGIE DAYCARE CENTER IN ARDSLEY has offered to sponsor the full $6000 that Greenburgh needs annually to maintain the dog park at Ridge Road. Last year the town received a commitment of $43,000 from the state to build a dog park. The CountyExecutivepromised to designate part of RidgeParkin Hartsdale (a county park) for a dog park. Eileen has provided me with some additional fundraising ideas that, hopefully, will enable us to move the dog park effort forward. A meeting has been scheduled for April 24th at AF Veteran Town Park (MultipurposeBuilding) at 8:15 PM.
