Well folks, the big day is almost upon us. Ossining's 8th Annual Earth Day begins tomorrow at Louis Engel Waterfront Park at 10AM-- be there or be left out, since chances are, most of your neighbors will be there too! We are looking forward to some sunshine and a whole lot of fun, learning from one another and finding out how we can make our daily lives more sustainable, for the betterment of future generations, our animals friends, and Planet Earth!
This event would simply not be possible without the tireless commitment of our Environmentalist-in-Residence Suzie Ross, who also serves as Chair of the Town/Village Green Ossining Committee. Suzie has been working like a madwoman to make this event the best yet, and trust me when I say she has set a high bar. Yesterday, we assembled an Emergency Management meeting of some of the involved parties to discuss last minute planning for the event, and Suzie sure has her ducks in a row. She has a great rapport with our staff and our first responders, which is good news, because tomorrow, she's in charge!
It's not just us in the Town and Village who think Suzie is a rock star-- today, in the middle of everything, she had to leave her laptop so she could be recogniozed by Volunteer New York at their 38th Annual Volunteer Spirit Awards with the "Going Green" Award. This award, presented by Con Edison, is a testament to the commitment that Suzie has demonstrated to helping our community get stronger through sustainable efforts, and she is doing an incredible job. Appropriately, we prepared a proclamation from the Town naming tomorrow "Suzie Ross Day" in the Town of Ossining. Please make sure to congratulate her if you see her flying around, and thank her for everything she's been doing for the betterment of our planet! GO SUZIE GO!

70 degrees, that's better! Do you ever notice how much more awake everyone feels on days like this? OK-- that may also be because it's a Friday, and there is a lot going on in Ossining this weekend, starting with a ton of live music tonight! If you plan to stay in Town, Joe Krzyzewski will be playing live at First Village Coffee on Main Street between 7PM and 8:30PM. You could also take a quick trip up Route 9 and check out Ossining resident Mark Fineberg performing with The Hit Men at the Paramount Theater tonight at 8PM-- there is still time to get tickets!
We have an awful lot happening in Ossining this weekend, but I'll get back to that shortly. Here's a little info on what we've been up to this week.
On Monday, I attended a small celebration at the new site of Neighbors Link in Ossining. We are so excited to have this organization sited here so they can continue to provide excellent support programs for our community, from legal support, to making sure protections are in place for safe and fair working conditions and housing, language support, parenting and more, they offer so much. They have been partnering with local churches, the school district, county, Village and Town and we hope this new space will ensure they have even more of an opportunity to help those in our community who need them.

If you're used to my Friday updates, you'll know it's a bit unusual for us to send something like this out on a Monday, but we were recently informed about a few upcoming events that you won't want to miss!
In addition, I also learned from one of my fellow Supervisors that folks with Cablevision/ Optimum who lost service during the recent storms may be eligible for a bill credit, depending on how long your service was out. Time periods lasting more than 4 hours would qualify. You need to contact them in order to be verified for this credit-- call them at (718) 860-3513, or live chat here. You will need to provide your home address and what dates you were without service-- even though they likely have this information already, you will not be issued a credit without asking for it and providing the proper information about your outage. The sooner you can make contact on this, the better the chance you will receive the credit you are due.

Could you believe we had even more snow today? Hopefully we've seen the last of the white stuff for this season and our weather patterns will follow us into Spring-- we've been here a while already! That wind yesterday also set us back a little bit-- Suzie Ross of Green Ossining was so very proud of our new banner (see below)-- but just hours after being placed on the 200 Main Street bank building, the wind literally ripped it down.
The banner was rushed to SBS on North State Road for emergency surgery. Don't worry, Suzie-- we are sure you will get it back looking like new in no time!

Happy Friday, everyone!
This week marks important holidays for many of us, with Passover beginning tonight and Easter this Sunday-- Town offices will be closing at 12 Noon in observance. Today is also Good Friday, the pinnacle of the religious year for Christians around the world. Here in Ossining, St. Ann's Church will hold its annual Stations of the Cross procession. Each year, St. Ann's parishioners showcase their strong faith and cultural diversity along Ossining's streets with this multi-lingual procession. This year, the Stations of the Cross will follow the same route as last year, beginning at St. Ann's on Eastern Avenue at 6PM. The procession will continue up Eastern Avenue, turning on Churchill Street, Ellis Place, and Wolden Avenue. After making a stop on Wolden in front of Ossining High School, the procession will turn onto Maurice Avenue for another stop along Maurice Avenue, then crossing Route 9 to James Street, turning on Edward Street and stopping once more at Nelson Sitting Park. Then, the procession will travel along Spring Street to Market Square, making one last stop, before crossing Route 9 at Ellis Place to end back at St. Ann's around 8PM. As you travel around Ossining tonight, please be mindful of those participating in the procession, and follow the instructions of the Ossining Police Department, who have become experts at moving hundreds of people through the streets of Ossining each Good Friday!
