Before I get into what a busy week it has been in the Town of Ossining, I wanted to share with you a picture from an event I attended last Friday. I had the honor to meet Evelyn Partalis, the one Ossining resident that was inducted into the Westchester County Senior Hall of Fame as part of their class of 2019. Evelyn had an inspiring career as a teacher, and has gone on in her retirement to share her love of education and volunteerism with fellow teachers and the community as a whole. Evelyn is quite a remarkable lady, and I am so proud she calls home. Congratulations Evelyn!
This was a bittersweet week in the Town, as we started saying goodbye to our Town/Village Clerk, Honorable Mary Ann Roberts. Mary Ann has decided to retire this year after 20 years in her current role as Clerk, and 10 years of service to the Village of Ossining as Trustee and Mayor before that.
Mary Ann has lived in Ossining since she was a young girl, and has dedicated most of her adult life to serving her neighbors and making Ossining a better place to call home. Mary Ann and her late husband Fred, raised their children Kim and Sarah here, and both worked so hard in their professional and volunteer roles to serve their community.
As Clerk, Mary Ann touched the lives of so many in Ossining, literally from birth to death, marriage, and everything in between including dog licenses, FOIL requests, Town and Village Board Meetings, hunting and fishing licenses, parking permits, all sorts of other licenses, and much, much more. The Clerk’s office is often the face of Town and Village government and Mary Ann has done an excellent job at serving her neighbors.
At our Regular Meeting on Tuesday night, we presented Mary Ann with a proclamation, recognizing her decades of service to our community.
