Tonight, despite the swirling skies, we are still on track for some great fun in Ossining! At 5:30PM, the Town and Village will join the Ossining School District in an end of the year celebration of the Ossining Basics Program. This event was originally scheduled to take place at Louis Engel Park, but the decision was made late yesterday to switch to an indoor venue-- I hope you will join us at the Park School Gymnasium tonight (Friday, June 16th) at 5:30PM to celebrate another successful year of learning with our youngest residents.
Then at 7:30PM, the Ossining PBA will be hosting "Finding Dory" as part of their "Movies in the Park" program-- however, due to the weather, it has been decided to re-locate the event to the Joseph G. Caputo Community Center. A big thanks to our local PBA for providing this great family event to kick off the weekend.
Speaking of Parks, our crew has continued to work at a fever pitch to get Ryder pavilion and fields ready for the start of camp (today is the last day to register-- call the Recreation Office at 941-3189 or check out the information pamphlet here.) The drainage work to prepare for next week's gutter installation at the Pavilion will be completed on Monday (they have laid all but 60 feet of box drain) and everything (the area around the concrete Pavilion floor and the path up to the comfort station) is ready to be paved.

I hope you will consider kicking off your weekend with the Ossining Jazz Festival tonight! There will be a double bill at 7:30PM tonight (Friday, 6/9) and tomorrow (Saturday, 6/10)-- if you plan to attend on both nights, be sure to pick up a Two Night Festival Pass to see all 4 bands this weekend.
Before I get into all of the other exciting community events coming up this weekend, I want to share some important information about what we've been up to this week.
On Tuesday evening at our Town Board Work Session, we were joined by our Town Assessor Fernando Gonzalez who shared with us some information about the recent mailing of "Change in Assessment" notices. If you'd like to hear his presentation to the Board, you can check out the Town's Youtube site (Fernando's presentation starts about 2 minutes in.) Fernando shared a lot of valuable information, much of which we have consolidated into an FAQ document and an accompanying chart of the neighborhood delineations, which you can find on the Assessor's page.
