Did you know that today is Gloria Fried Day in the Town of Ossining? Last night we celebrated Gloria's career in public service as she retires from her position as our Receiver of Taxes. Gloria has served the Ossining community in many ways since she moved here with her husband, John, in 1972, and she will certainly be missed. Thank you to Gloria for all of her hard work, especially for the many innovations she brought to the Tax Office to increase efficiency and maintain a high level of customer service. I hope you will all join me in welcoming our new Receiver of Taxes, Holly Perlowitz, as she starts in this role next week and picks up where Gloria left off in serving the public.
Ossining's Annual Fireworks Celebration takes place this Monday, July 3rd and is also the start of our Summer Waterfront Concert Series. This year's celebration features reggae cover band Tribal Legacy beginning at 7:30pm, with the beautiful fireworks beginning at 9:15pm. Tribal Legacy will follow the fireworks display with another set and play until about 10:30pm, so plan to stick around and avoid the traffic. This is one of the highlights of summer in Ossining, and I encourage everyone to attend. Just as a reminder – on Monday the 3rd, the commuter parking lot on the West side of the tracks will be closed off once it is full, as will the access road over the tracks. In order to get to the West side of the tracks, you must use the Snowden Avenue bridge (by Shattemuc Yacht Club) if you require access to Harbor Square, 3 Westerly, or any other businesses along Westerly Road. To enjoy the fireworks, your best bet is to park on the East side of the tracks. Commuters -- please be mindful that your car may be towed or blocked in if you park in an area that will be used for the program and do not get back to Ossining to pick up your car before 4pm. So since July 3rd is a workday for many, commuters, please plan your travel accordingly! The boat ramp at Engel Park will also be closed on Monday. Also, we received some complaints last year that people were using drones during the fireworks display which blocked the view of the fireworks for some attendees. Drones are not permitted to be flown over people. Also, please be mindful of everyone at this community event, and try to not bring anything that will disrupt your neighbors. In general, follow the instructions of the Ossining Police Department, and everyone is sure to have a great time!
If you are reading this in time, you can still catch some awesome live music tonight. Vibe Theory, a local favorite, is playing at 8PM at the Steamer Firehouse Gallery. Tickets are $15 at the door-- come in and escape the drizzly rain while you rock out to some great original tunes.
If you are not reading this in time, no sweat (unless you are outdoors today, in which case, lots of sweat)-- our Summer Concert Series is on the way! The Series kicks off on Monday, July 3rd with the Independence Day Fireworks celebration featuring reggae cover band Tribal Legacy, and goes all the way through Labor Day Weekend. We are looking forward to a great season down at Louis Engel Park, I hope to see you there! (As a reminder-- on Monday the 3rd, commuters will not be able to cross the bridge into or out of the Metro North lot between 4PM and 10PM, when the fireworks are over. Please plan your travels accordingly.)
