Matthew Anderson, President & CEO of The Osborn, accepted the Distinguished Service Award at the Visiting Nurse Service of Westchester’s Foundation gala on May 15, 2019, at the Willow Ridge Country Club in Harrison, NY. The gala is the organization’s annual fundraiser to benefit home health care and community health education programs.

Mr. Anderson and The Osborn were chosen to receive the award because of their dedication to improving the lives of seniors in the community. Mr. Anderson, who has been at The Osborn for more than 20 years, is a highly regarded leader in the field of senior living and a key advocate for seniors in the region. Mr. Anderson is a fellow with LeadingAge, the national organization serving seniors, and a former coach of its Leadership Academy. He is also a former Board Member with its affiliate, LeadingAge NY, a member of Greenwich Hospital's Community Advisory Committee, and a Trustee of the Rye Free Reading Room.

“This is a wonderful honor,” stated Mr. Anderson. “Having The Osborn recognized by VNS at their annual gala is high praise — the staff, administration and board of trustees are grateful for this award.” 

The Osborn, one of the most prestigious senior living communities in the area, opened its doors in 1908 and, over the years, has expanded to include Independent Living, Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing, Long Term Care, Short Term Rehab, Memory Care, as well as Home Care.

In addition to Mr. Anderson and The Osborn, two other organizations were also honored: Aging in America, Inc., and Gera Looser, RN, from Westchester Care at Home.

According to Timothy P. Leddy, president and CEO of Westchester Visiting Nurse Services Group, "The majority of our patients — 83 percent — are 65 years or older. Honoring these dedicated individuals and organizations is a way for us to express our profound gratitude for the critical role they play in supporting our efforts to help the seniors in our care." Westchester Visiting Nurse Services Group is the parent organization of VNS Westchester, the VNSW Foundation, and Westchester Care at Home.

PCSB Bank employees once again recently showed their unwavering support during the 2019 Heart Walk—raising nearly $54,000 for the American Heart Association (AHA). During the past 16 years, PCSB Bank has raised an impressive grand total of more than $693,000 for the AHA’s battle against heart disease.

The PCSB Bank team had 432 employees, families and friends participating in this year’s walkathon. The event raised funds for the AHA’s critical research and awareness programs that help fight heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States.

“Our participation in this event each year provides an inspiring opportunity for PCSB Bank employees, along with friends and families, to rally around a cause that means a great deal to us—as so many in our community are impacted by heart disease,” said Joseph D. Roberto, chairman, president and CEO of PCSB Bank. “I am very proud of our bank’s outstanding team spirit and enthusiastic support for this crucial cause. We truly look forward to this event each year.”

The Heart Walk raises funds for the American Heart Association, which teams with millions of volunteers to fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide lifesaving tools and information to prevent and treat heart disease and stroke.

Purchase College Honors President Thomas J.

Purchase College honored the achievements of President Thomas J. Schwarz on May 8 at a special celebration marking his stepping down as president at the end of this semester. More than 200 people were in attendance at the festive dinner event at The Performing Arts Center on campus. The program’s Master of Ceremonies were led by the celebrated actor and alumnus Jay O. Sanders ’76 and alumna Assemblywoman Latrice Walker ’01. Special guests included distinguished alumni, elected officials, and Purchase leadership.

In addition to remarks from Purchase College leadership, Jazz Studies students from the Conservatory of Music performed, a video tribute was shown, and President Schwarz’s presidential painting by professor emeritus Murray Zimiles was unveiled. Assemblywoman Latrice Walker read a letter from Governor Cuomo in honor of the event and presented a legislative proclamation sponsored by both houses commemorating Schwarz’s tenure as president.

President Schwarz, who is one of the longest serving presidents in the SUNY system, was named the fifth President of Purchase in 2003. He arrived at Purchase as Acting President in January 2002.

Under President Schwarz’s leadership, the college has experienced a significant improvement in retention and graduation rates; has increased its endowment from approximately $35 million to more than $90 million; and has undergone significant renovations and commissioned new structures, including the forthcoming Center for Media, Film, and Theatre. All new and renovated structures are reflective of the campus commitment to environmental and social responsibilities.

Additionally, President Schwarz has embraced entrepreneurship in an effort to create new revenue streams that support the mission of the college. One of his most innovative projects is Broadview, a senior living community currently in development for the campus. Following his departure, President Schwarz will continue to be a member of the Board that is directing the project. In his remarks at the event, President Schwarz shared his optimism for the future of the college and urged the attendees to continue to fight for support of public education. 

Before coming to Purchase College, President Schwarz had a distinguished career as a partner at the law firm of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, where he was National Practice Leader of the Litigation Department and was the founding partner of the firm’s Committee on Diversity.

President Schwarz earned a BA in economics from Hamilton College and a JD from Fordham Law School where he served on the Law Review.

In the near future, the College Council will form a committee of council members, faculty, staff, students, and alumni to oversee a search for a new president. Dennis Craig, VP of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management has been named by the SUNY Board of Trustees as Interim President for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Wartburg Foundation Board Member, Mark Jacobs and the Smart Car he donated for real-life training in its state-of-the-art rehabilitation building.

Wartburg, a premiere senior residential and healthcare facility in lower Westchester County, now offers a car for real-life training in its state-of-the-art rehabilitation building.  The addition of a car to complement Wartburg’s “Real Life Training” apartment will help patients learn safe transfer in and out of a car—giving them the confidence they need to return to their lives faster and healthier.

Wartburg boasts Westchester’s only freestanding rehabilitation center with all private rooms and baths. Part of its innovative rehabilitative care is a “Real Life Training” apartment with a living/dining room, kitchen, bedroom and bath.  Patients perform activities of daily living like getting in and out of bed, the shower or taking items in and out of the washing machine/dryer to ensure a safe return home.  The car allows for patients to do the same with activities outside of the home that involve using a car.

“Although Westchester County is near urban areas, most people rely on their cars to get around,” said Dr. David Gentner, Wartburg President & CEO. This addition to Wartburg’s rehabilitation center is important for our patients who, like most in our community, rely on their car to get around.” 

Wartburg was able to purchase a Smart Car thanks to a generous gift from Wartburg Foundation Board Member, Mark Jacobs.  “I am proud to be able to partner with Wartburg on acquiring a car for their rehabilitation center,” said Jacobs. “Wartburg has a long history of innovative care for those recovering from an injury or illness and I feel it is important to support this worthy organization to continue the vital care provided to our community.”

“We are so thankful to Mark for his benevolence as well as his time as a board member,” said Angela Ciminello, Vice President of Development and Marketing at Wartburg. “We could not have done this without him and his support will make a significant difference in the lives of those entrusted to our care.”

For Carvel's birthday, the gift is all yours. Come by your local participating Carvel any time on Thursday, May 2nd and get an 85¢ junior soft ice cream cone or cup. you can enjoy their classic vanilla, chocolate, or the brand new Cold Brew Coffee ice cream. Only one per person, but bring as many people as you want.

Carvel began selling ice cream out of his truck in 1929 in Hartsdale, New York. On Memorial Day weekend in 1934, his truck had a flat tire, so he pulled into a parking lot next to a pottery store and began selling his melting ice cream to vacationers who were driving by and he built his first permanent store at that location.

There are over 400 Carvel franchises and food service locations in 24 states, according to the company, but it says its key markets are in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York. Their headquarters are in Farmington, Ct.
