SUMMER JOB OPENINGS FOR STUDENTS---WWW.GREENBURGHJOBS.BLOGSPOT.COM
The Town of Greenburgh has begun a blog at Greenburghjobs.blogspot.com to advertise local job openings for the summer and beyond. Initially intended for students seeking employment, the effort has expanded to include several management positions as well. Openings are available all over Westchester, including in Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry, Irvington, Elmsford, Tarrytown and even the Westchester Mall.
So far, over 50 jobs have been posted with more to come. David Schuman, an intern for the Town of Greenburgh, is a co-creator of the blog along with fellow interns Josh Ringel, Jon Rood and Zach Bergenfeld. There are a surprising amount of local stores looking for employees, and “getting the word out to all the people who probably did not know about these jobs” is the central mission of the blog, according to Schuman. Ringel made sure to add, “We have also put up many helpful tips on how to go about getting employed, including information on job interview skills.”
Last year, the Town of Greenburgh was able to place a confirmed twelve people in new positions, and possibly more. The interview tips are a recent development that the interns hope will attract more viewers. Visit the blog at
BATTLE OF THE BANDS ON E HARTSDALE AVE THIS SATURDAY
On Saturday, June 11, join a cause that will markedly change the lives of children from around the world with congenital heart defects. As the kickoff to the Greenburgh Summer Concert Series,we’re hosting a Battle of the Bands Benefit Concert for the Gift of Life International District 7230, a charity managed by the Westchester Rotary Club. The event will be held on E Hartsdale Ave during the farmer’s market.
Gift of Life International raises money to bring less fortunate children into the country, where surgeons give them another chance at life. An operation that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars is performed for a mere $6,000. Many of the kids have grown up with holes in their hearts that would have been repaired at birth if they had been born in the US.
So far, children from 64 countries have been treated successfully, including Sami, a six year old from Panama who was brought to Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx last year. Sponsored by the Ossining Rotary Club, Sami’s open-heart operation was a success. Sami’s gift of life is a gift that could be given to many more children with your help.
The Benefit Concert will feature four local artists. Performing first at 10 AM are The Blues Mothers, a group from Hastings that plays jazzy blues. Next, at 11 AM, are The Enthusiasts, a band from Ardsley that will rock your world. At noon Mad Handsome goes on, which includes Henry Leone and Derek O’Donnell, two Ardsley High School teachers. Finally, at 1 PM, come hear the sounds of Mamojam, a band of Ardsley High School students that has been around for three years.
With local performers and one of the best organic food markets in the area, June 11 promises to be a fun time that will raise money for an honorable cause. Gift of Life is an organization that produces tangible results and you can be a part of it. All contributions are significant. For more information, please send
