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!

The sun is shining and it seems like Spring may be here to stay! How are you celebrating slipping into Spring? If you are in search of something to do on this beautiful evening in Ossining, you have no shortage of options. Ossining High School Drama will continue its run with night two of "Bring it On, The Musical"-- admission is free but donations are always appreciated!
The Town and Village of Ossining are co-sponsoring the "March for Our Lives", organized by Ossining High School's Junior States of America (JSA), scheduled to take place at Louis Engel Park tomorrow (Saturday) beginning at 12 Noon. Following the tragic school shooting in Parkland, Florida, groups of young people nationwide have organized to stand up against gun violence. Similar marches will be happening all around our nation, and we are so pleased to be able to offer people a safe place to express themselves about this very timely issue right here in Ossining. I do hope that you will join us at the park for this unifying event and lend your voice to this important issue-- if you decide to join, please use the hashtags #marchforourlives and #m4olossiningny when posting from the event on your Instagram, Facebook and all other social media.

Before I let you know what we've been up to this week-- check the clock. Is it before 7:30PM when you are reading this? Then there's still time! Tonight, the Bethany Arts Community (BAC) at 40 Somerstown Road will be hosting the Opening Reception for their first ever Local Artist Exhibit! Have you visited Bethany since it opened a few months ago? They have rehabbed the former Maryknoll Brothers building into an exciting new art space, and they are working on bringing some innovative programs into our community. Stop by between 7:30PM and 10PM tonight to check out the gallery spaces, not to mention the exhibition of art by your neighbors. The art will remain on display until April 7th. Visit the Bethany website for more details.
There are still some tickets available for tonight's Living Art Event at Westchester Collaborative Theater. Take a docent-led tour through the gallery at the Steamer Firehouse (117 Main Street) and learn about the art on display-- when you reach an art piece that inspired a WCT playwright, you will be treated to a short play based on the work. It is an innovative and wonderful way to to get treated to some of our best local and regional artists, writers and performers. Can't make it to tonight's 8PM performance? Not to worry-- there are two shows scheduled for tomorrow (Saturday, March 16th) and one for Sunday, March 17th. After this weekend, you will only have three more chances to check out this awesome production-- grab your tickets for all shows here.

It's been a heck of a week here in Ossining-- we have more residents than we'd like who are still without power, though we have taken every opportunity we can to point our Con Ed Liaison and crews in their direction. I want to thank all of our residents for their patience in what has been a very stressful and uncomfortable situation, and I also want to thank the Ossining Police Department for taking the lead these past few days and coordinating with our Con Ed Municipal liaison in the field. Between Chief Sylvester (who you probably know from his Live Facebook videos), Lieutenant Slater and Lieutenant Montague, we have gotten exceptional service and these guys have really gone to bat for our community, working very long hours and never letting their frustration show. In all sincerity, we couldn't have done it without them.
For those residents who are still without power, there continue to be many services available to you. Club Fit is still offering a place to charge devices and take a hot shower (bring your own towels please), and there are three dry ice locations throughout Westchester County that will be open until 8PM tonight.
- Mount Pleasant Town Hall (1 Town Hall Plaza, Valhalla)
- New Rochelle City Hall- Back Parking Lot (515 North Avenue, New Rochelle)
- Cortlandt Town Center (3121 East Main Street, Mohegan Lake-- near Applebee's)

Does anyone else remember a few days ago when it was 60 degrees and sunny? That was nice.
We are really up against it with this weather. All over Ossining (and, really, Westchester), there have been reports of blown transformers and power outages, along with downed trees and power lines. We know that Con Ed has extra crews working through this, so if you are suffering from an outage, please know that teams are working to get you up and running. It seems that the worst of the precipitation is behind us, but the wind is expected to continue through the early morning tomorrow. Please make sure all your devices are charged, and download the Con Ed app on your tablet or smartphone. Their interactive outage map continues to improve and will show you real-time information about outages and expected restoration times in your neighborhood. If you need to report an outage, call 1-800-75-CONED.
In the meantime, please help our first responders and stay off of the roads to the extent possible. If you see a downed power line, avoid it and dial 911. Make sure that you observe the parking rules that apply in your neighborhood, and be sure to check on your elderly neighbors if possible. We are great at pulling together during times like these, so hopefully before we know it, the sun will be shining again.
