Happy Friday! Hope everyone is doing well and staying warm as the temperatures have begun dropping this week. 

Big news on the e-bikes front this week. Congratulations to the Village of Ossining for winning one of the grand prizes in NYSERDA’s Electric Mobility Challenge for Project MOVER!

It’s hard to believe that next week is already Thanksgiving! As Thanksgiving approaches, so does holiday shopping season. As we have in the past, the Town of Ossining is encouraging everyone to shop local and support Small Business Saturday, coming up on Saturday, November 26. 

The Ossining Small Business Scavenger Hunt is currently underway and will run through November 29. The more you shop, the more chances you get to win a basket of goodies from Ossining businesses! The greatest prize of all, of course, is a thriving local economy. Pick up a Scavenger Hunt card at any participating business, or click here to access the Facebook event.  Participants include Sing Sing Kill Brewery, Mike Risko Music, Hudson Valley Books for Humanity, First Village Coffee, Penny & Ting, Melita’s Home, The Tasty Table, and many many others.

Get into the Shop Small spirit early with the Festive Fair at Holbrook Cottage this weekend, benefiting Ossining Children’s Center!

Melita’s Home will be hosting a local artisans pop-up market on Small Business Saturday and Sunday, November 27 - a great way to support small businesses and local artists with your holiday shopping.

If you’re able, please consider donating to one of the local toy and winter clothing drives. We are also hosting a Toys for Tots box at Town & Village Hall (16 Croton Ave.)

That’s all for this week! For upcoming events and more, keep scrolling. Note that Town offices will be closed next Thursday and Friday in observance of Thanksgiving, and next Friday there will be no Supervisor’s Update. Waste and recycling pickup will be impacted by the holiday; consult the calendar on the Waste and Recycling page of our website or, better yet, download the Recycle Right app if you haven’t already! This is the best way to stay attuned to changes in the waste and recycling schedule. Links to download the app are also available on the Waste and Recycling page.

We hope you enjoy the holiday! If you’re in need, consider joining Gullotta House for Thanksgiving dinner at St. Ann’s on Sunday, November 20th between 1:45 and 6 PM.  

We will see you soon - till then, be safe and healthy!
