High School Student Gives Halloween-Themed Virtual Origami Class Hosted by the Lewisboro Library to Benefit the Danbury Food Bank https://news.hamlethub.com/katonah/neighbors/5567-high-school-student-gives-halloween-themed-virtual-origami-class-hosted-by-the-lewisboro-library-to-benefit-the-danbury-food-bank5567-high-school-student-gives-halloween-themed-virtual-origami-class-hosted-by-the-lewisboro-library-to-benefit-the-danbury-food-bank https://news.hamlethub.com/katonah/neighbors/5567-high-school-student-gives-halloween-themed-virtual-origami-class-hosted-by-the-lewisboro-library-to-benefit-the-danbury-food-bank5567-high-school-student-gives-halloween-themed-virtual-origami-class-hosted-by-the-lewisboro-library-to-benefit-the-danbury-food-bank

Vihan Jayawardhane, a sophomore and honors student at Wilton High School, has taught a series of origami classes via Zoom this past summer for teens and adults as a fun and interactive activity for Lewisboro residents hosted by the Library. Now for Halloween, Vihan will be giving a class hosted by the library where participants will learn to make Halloween-themed origami shapes.

Residents can register here for his Halloween class: https://lewisborolibrary.org/event/virtual-halloween-origami/. Anyone interested in participating can use their own paper or stop by the Library for a packet of Halloween-color origami paper.

Vihan has been teaching origami classes as a way to give back to the community and to create an enjoyable activity that can be done virtually to keep teens and adults engaged during this time of social distancing when so many other activities have had to be canceled. He has also been volunteering his time to tutor students of essential workers over the summer and now into the fall.

In order to help families dealing with food insecurity in the area, Vihan has set up a GoFundMe page (https://gf.me/u/y562rn) where he is collecting donations from supporters to raise money for the Daily Bread Food Pantry, a food bank located in Danbury, Connecticut. In fact, Vihan has collected the first $100 from supporters and donated it to the food pantry and hopes to raise even more by Halloween.

Vihan says, “I’m doing this as a community service in order to help our neighbors dealing with food insecurity and those working on the front lines during this very challenging time. For anyone who would like to donate – 100% of proceeds will benefit the Daily Bread Food Pantry (a 501(c)3 non-profit that serves 700-800 families monthly in Danbury and surrounding areas) and to provide origami supplies to children of essential workers.” If you have any questions, please email vj.eclasses@gmail.com.

Jorma Kaukonen of Hot Tuna Outdoors at The Ridgefield Playhouse Tomorrow! Tickets Available! https://news.hamlethub.com/katonah/events/5564-the-ridgefield-playhouse-16034795755564-the-ridgefield-playhouse-1603479575 https://news.hamlethub.com/katonah/events/5564-the-ridgefield-playhouse-16034795755564-the-ridgefield-playhouse-1603479575

It's the last weekend of outdoor shows at The Ridgefield Playhouse!  Tickets going fast for Jorma Kaukonen on Saturday Night! Click here for tickets or call The Ridgefield Playhouse box office at 203.438.5795

TWO Shows – Saturday, October 24 at 4pm and 7:30pm!  As a founding member of both Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, and one of Rolling Stones’ 100 Greatest Guitarists, Jorma Kaukonen has remained one the most respected interpreters of American roots, blues and rock for more than 50 years.

Kaukonen was at the forefront of popular rock and roll, helping to define the San Francisco sound and a progenitor of Psychedelic Rock. He is a music legend and one of the finest singer-songwriters in his field. Kaukonen continues to tour the world – both solo and with Hot Tuna – bringing his unique styling to old blues tunes while presenting new songs of weight and dimension. His secret is in playing spontaneous and unfiltered music, with an individual expression of personality.

“A pioneer of San Francisco psychedelia, Jorma Kaukonen is a bonafide graybeard folk swami. He mostly lays back, a master in situ, unfurling melodies and savoring every note.” – Rolling Stone Magazine

These shows will be socially-distanced with seating under a tent.  Chairs are provided for all ticket holders and will be pre-assigned based on the date of ticket purchase. Members will receive priority seating.

The Aldrich Podcast Series "Hindsight is" Continues Oct. 26 with The Webbs https://news.hamlethub.com/katonah/events/5561-the-aldrich-launches-podcast-hindsight-is5561-the-aldrich-launches-podcast-hindsight-is https://news.hamlethub.com/katonah/events/5561-the-aldrich-launches-podcast-hindsight-is5561-the-aldrich-launches-podcast-hindsight-is

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum has launched the first episode of a new three-episode podcast series, Hindsight is, presented in conjunction with Twenty Twenty an exhibition in which seven artists respond to lived experience of this historic year. The exhibit is produced by the Piti Theatre Company and brings local history and current events to life through creative storytelling. 

Hindsight is focuses on vignette scenes with a range of local and regional historic figures in Connecticut, and Ridgefield in particular, including women’s Suffragist Alice Paul and former NAACP Connecticut Chapter President William Webb. Actors portray these figures dramatizing social and political issues intensified this year such as voting rights, racism, and fascism through their unique perspectives as citizens from the past.

You can listen to the first episode featuring Ridgefield’s Alice Paul and President Woodrow Wilson here.

On Monday, October 26, The Aldrich will release the second episode “The Webbs,” featuring William Webb, an African-American Civil War solider from Connecticut in conversation with William Webb who started the Ridgefield Chapter of the NAACP and later became the Connecticut president of that organization.

Released on Monday, November 2 will be the final episode “How Worried Should We Be? Hitler on Trial at Ridgefield High, 1934,” recreating some of the mock trial held in 1934 by a Ridgefield High School Economics class offering a snapshot of teenage and educational life in Ridgefield in the 1930s.

In addition, The Aldrich is hosting two virtual programs coinciding with these podcast episodes.

Thursday, October 22 at 6:30 pm - virtual talk on Alice Paul and Woodrow Wilson

During this event, Tina Cassidy, author of Mr. President, How Long Must We Wait? Alice Paul, Woodrow Wilson, and the Fight for the Right to Vote, and Jonathan Mirin, co-founding artistic director of the Piti Theatre Company, will delve into the themes and history behind the first episode of the podcast. More information can be found here.

Thursday, October 29 at 6:30 pm, you are invited to (virtually) attend Anti-Racism Workshop: The Webbs

This coincides with the second episode of the podcast. Kirsten Ivey-Colson and Lynn Turner from The AntiRacist Tables, will lead the group in a workshop on the work of antiracism as a path towards healing and liberation for ourselves and our world and create a space to share with the community.

CDC Tips for a safe Halloween Fun and Trick-or-Treating! https://news.hamlethub.com/katonah/publicsafety/5558-cdc-tips-for-a-safe-halloween-fun-and-trick-or-treating5558-cdc-tips-for-a-safe-halloween-fun-and-trick-or-treating https://news.hamlethub.com/katonah/publicsafety/5558-cdc-tips-for-a-safe-halloween-fun-and-trick-or-treating5558-cdc-tips-for-a-safe-halloween-fun-and-trick-or-treating

Halloween is one of more exciting holidays on our calendars. Some of us have probably even started to decorate our front lawns with pumpkins and fake gravestones. But 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we do things including the way we celebrate. Instead of big parties for birthdays or graduations we do drive by parades with everyone remaining in their decorated vehicles.

Instead of big indoor weddings and dinners we do small outdoor vows with witnesses limited to close family. We have altered our standards in life for the safety of others. So how should we alter the way we do Halloween in order to keep our neighborhoods safe? The best place to turn to for sound advice is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Their website offers a list of things to consider before making plans. For example, - Community levels of COVID-19 - Location of the gathering - The Duration of the gathering - The amount of people at the gathering - Locations that attendees are traveling from - The behaviors of attendees prior to and during the event

People who should not attend in-person Halloween celebrations include, - People who have been exposed to COVID-19 - People who are at risk for severe illness The CDC also lays out our typical Halloween activities into three different levels of risk, lower, moderate, and high.

Many traditional Halloween activities can be high-risk for spreading viruses. There are several safer, alternative ways to participate in Halloween. If you may have COVID-19 or you may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, you should not participate in in-person Halloween festivities and should not give out candy to trick-or-treaters.

Steps to Take when Trick or Treating

Traditional Halloween activities are fun, but some can increase the risk of getting or spreading COVID-19 or influenza. Plan alternate ways to participate in Halloween.

 Make trick-or-treating safer
  • Avoid direct contact with trick-or-treaters.
  • Give out treats outdoors, if possible.
  • Set up a station with individually bagged treats for kids to take.
  • Wash hands before handling treats.
  • Wear a mask.
 Wear a mask
  • Make your cloth mask part of your costume.
  • A costume mask is not a substitute for a cloth mask.
  • Do NOT wear a costume mask over a cloth mask. It can make breathing more difficult.
  • Masks should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing

Stay at least 6 feet away from others who do not live with you

  • Indoors and outdoors, you are more likely to get or spread COVID-19 when you are in close contact with others for a long time.
 Wash your hands
  • Bring hand sanitizer with you and use it after touching objects or other people.
  • Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Parents: supervise young children using hand sanitizer.
  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when you get home and before you eat any treats.

Steps To Take For Other Halloween Activities

Enjoy Halloween activities and take steps to protect yourself from getting or spreading COVID-19.

Remember to always
  • Wear a cloth mask
  • Indoors and outdoors, stay at least 6 feet away from others who do not live with you
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer frequently
 
 

Decorate and carve pumpkins

  • Decorate your home for Halloween.
  • Carve pumpkins with members of your household or outside with neighbors or friends.
  • Walk from house to house, admiring Halloween decorations at a distance.
 
 

Visit an orchard, forest, or corn maze. Attend a scavenger hunt.

  • Go on an outdoor Halloween-themed scavenger hunt.
  • Visit a pumpkin patch or orchard. Remember to wash your hands or use hand sanitizer frequently, especially after touching frequently touched surfaces, pumpkins, or apples.
  • Go to a one-way, walk-through haunted forest or corn maze.

Other Ideas

  • Hide Halloween treats in and around your house. Hold a Halloween treat hunt with household members.
  • Hold an outdoor costume parade or contest so everyone can show off their costumes.
  • Host an outdoor Halloween movie night with friends or neighbors or an indoor movie night with your household members.

Byrne Honors Healthcare Workers with Physician Assistant Week Resolution https://news.hamlethub.com/katonah/neighbors/5556-byrne-honors-healthcare-workers-with-physician-assistant-week-resolution5556-byrne-honors-healthcare-workers-with-physician-assistant-week-resolution https://news.hamlethub.com/katonah/neighbors/5556-byrne-honors-healthcare-workers-with-physician-assistant-week-resolution5556-byrne-honors-healthcare-workers-with-physician-assistant-week-resolution

Assemblyman Kevin Byrne (R, C, Ref-Mahopac) is pleased to announce he presented a legislative resolution to Northwell Health at Northern Westchester Hospital. The resolution named Oct. 6-12 Physician Assistant Week in New York. Additionally, recognition was given to Northwell Health with a separate proclamation for their employer award from the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA).

“I extend my congratulations to all the PAs at Northwell Health and Northern Westchester Hospital,” said Assemblyman Byrne. “This has been an incredibly challenging year for frontline healthcare workers, and PAs have provided essential clinical care throughout our state’s healthcare system. My wife is a PA and worked through much of the pandemic until she delivered our son on May 18, here at Northern Westchester Hospital. I understand and fully appreciate how much work and dedication goes into the job. It is a pleasure to be here with this exceptional team of PAs at Northern Westchester Hospital and to recognize Northwell as an Employer of Excellence. Thank you to all our amazing Pas and healthcare workers.”

There are over 110,00 physician’s assistants practicing across the United States.  This legislation honors PAs by extending National PA Day to an entire week. The first PA day took place on Oct. 6, 1987 in honor of the 20th anniversary of the first graduating class from Duke University. The job of a PA includes reviewing patient medical histories, examining patients, ordering and interpreting diagnostic test, giving treatment and prescribing medicine.

“On behalf of the more than 1,200 Physician Assistants in the Northwell system, I want to thank the leadership at Northwell Health and at Northern Westchester Hospital for their support and recognition of our role in delivering clinical care and to Assemblyman Byrne for advocating for this proclamation,” said Jason McGrade. “This year--more than ever-- PAs demonstrated the critical role they play within the healthcare team. We appreciate this recognition.”

“Our PAs are an essential part of our care team, and their knowledge, skill and expertise add tremendous value to the care we provide to our patients and community,” said Dr. Koroly. “We are particularly impressed with how they rose to the challenges presented during Covid-19 and adapted to a continually changing environment in order to meet the needs of our patients. We also extend our appreciation to Assemblyman Byrne for securing the proclamation in recognition of our team and all the PAs across Northwell Health and New York.”

This event took place at an outdoor ceremony and observed social distancing guidelines in the hospital’s Janet Fields Memorial Garden. This month, Northwell Health also received an Employer of Excellence Award from the American Academy of Physician Assistants for “creating programs that involve, empower and recognize PAs, who play a critical role in patient care.”

Kids In Crisis Autumn Scavenger Hunt

Kids In Crisis will host its second community-wide Scavenger Hunt October 23 through November 1. This much-anticipated virtual event is a fun and engaging way to build awareness for participating businesses and the Kids In Crisis mission.

The Scavenger Hunt is a great, safe way for singles, families, friends, and co-workers of all ages to have fun this Autumn. The cost to play is $10 for an individual or team of up to five people. Players receive a list of “missions,” in categories like “Family Fun,” “Do Good,” and “Community Awareness & Support.” The missions motivate players to get outdoors to safely and actively enjoy the charm and vibrancy of the season. Kids in Crisis has an exciting Scavenger Hunt prize pool to award to participating players.

Registration is now open via smartphone or computer, through a free app called Goosechase, and challenges will go live at 9:00 AM on October 23rd. Players will have a full week, until November 1st, to complete the mission challenges. Sharing successes and challenge submissions via social media is encouraged, using #KICCHALLENGE, and #KICSCAVENGERHUNT. Facebook.com/kidsincrisisct and Instagram Kids_In_Crisis

Individuals and teams of up to five players are welcome to play, and naming yourself or your team begins the fun. Once you’re in the game you’ll be required to “snap evidence” of completed missions to collect points through the app in real time, and your game organizer will award spontaneous prizes along the way. Players will have access to a real-time leaderboard to see how they stack up against other teams, and a motivational activity feed to chart progress and enjoy game-wide postings as the competition evolves.

This game is being made possible by voluntary donations and sponsorsincludingShoff Darby Insurance, Fairfield County Bank, Granoff Architects, Palmer’s Market and Philips.Organizations and individualsinterested in a sponsorship of this exciting eventare asked to contact Beth Jabick atbjabick@kidsincrisis.org.

Kids In Crisis Executive Director Shari Shapiro explains how the unique Scavenger Hunt idea came to life; “While we’ve had to cancel all of our in-person fundraisers in lieu of the Corona Virus pandemicandwe thought a virtual Scavenger Hunt would be the perfect way to stay connected with supporters, raise funds, andhelp spread awareness about the agency and the work we do."
