Visiting On Saturday 9:00am - 12:45pm
ARC Stages, will visit to highlight their current Next Stage production Sylvia, running from February 3 - 18. Sylvia depicts a New York City upper west side apartment in the 1990s where Greg and Kate, a middle aged, upper middle class married couple, experience their newly empty nest in very different ways. Tensions increase between them when Greg brings a stray dog home named Sylvia. Greg quickly becomes completely obsessed with Sylvia, causing the couple to reevaluate their marriage. Sylvia has a timely message of the need for connection in an increasingly alien and impersonal world. This fabulous dramatic comedy by A.R. Gurney is great for adults, teens and mature tweens.
Consider Contributing Food
The Market maintains a bin every Saturday so shoppers may "buy an extra item of produce" to contribute to families in need. This week the bin is located at the Manager's Table. Volunteers from the Pleasantville Community Garden collect all items at the end of the day, along with donations from farmers, and deliver them promptly to organizations such as Hillside Food Outreach. Since its establishment in June 2014, the Pleasantville Community Garden has donated over 30,000 pounds of fresh food! All this food has gone to kids, adults and seniors who don't have enough. This provides nutrition, which is expensive, but is very needed for people, and our communities, to remain healthy.
