Local business launches a new product to fundraise for a local animal shelter and other local organizations that support Fairfield and Westchester County.  

RYE, N.Y., Monday, October 26, 2020-- Pet Pantry will raise money for Adopt-a-Dog and other local organizations with the "Pet Pantry Pack" a specially curated bag of pet products, samples, and coupons from participating brand sponsors retailing for $25. The packs are loaded with value and 100% from sales will be donated to Pet Pantry’s nonprofit partners in Fairfield and Westchester County. 
"Each year we sponsor several family fun events at the hyper-local level, these events raise tens of thousands of dollars for critical animal welfare organizations in addition to others that are special to our team and our customers," said Adam Jacobson, Executive Vice President of Pet Pantry Warehouse. He continued, "Not only are these FUN-raising events entertaining for families to attend with their pets, but they provide a place for neighbors to connect and learn about some of the needs in their own community. Attendees always love to take home bags full of free samples of quality pet food and products from these events. So, this inspired us to create a special event package for our retail stores and donate the money we raise." 
This year's canceled events included the annual New Canaan Dog Days, the annual Puttin' on the Dog, the annual Howl & Prowl, and the inaugural Fairfield Dog Days. Other local organizations include Fairfield Parks & Recreation, the New Canaan Nature Center, and the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce. Sponsors include Raised Right, Open Farm, Acana, Earth Animal, Orijen, and others. 
“The cancellation of events this year has led to a shortage of $70,000 in funds that we desperately need to carry out our mission,” said Kristen Alouisa, Executive Director at Adopt-a-Dog. She continued, “We are so grateful to Pet Pantry Warehouse for holding the No Go Dog Show to help raise money to save the lives of the most at-risk animals. Pet Pantry has always been there for us, and we are proud to be partnered with such a wonderful business that cares so much about their community.”
Custom packs arrived in Pet Pantry stores last week, they were assembled by Pet Pantry’s pet experts and volunteers from Adopt-a-Dog. The pack includes Pet Pantry coupons on some of the retailer’s most popular brands which totals over $100 in value. Customers are advised to call their local Pet Pantry in Fairfield and Westchester County to order Pet Pantry Packs for curbside pickup or for more information on the selection at the nearest location (ppwpet.com/location).

Introducing Lewis, the District Attorney's First Facility Dog https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/politics/5089-introducing-lewis-the-district-attorney-s-first-facility-dog5089-introducing-lewis-the-district-attorney-s-first-facility-dog https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/politics/5089-introducing-lewis-the-district-attorney-s-first-facility-dog5089-introducing-lewis-the-district-attorney-s-first-facility-dog

Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. is introducing the Office’s first “facility dog,” Lewis is specially trained to work with victims and witnesses to help relieve their stress during the criminal justice process. Lewis will help make what is often a traumatic and stressful experience a bit easier for those who, through no fault of their own, find themselves involved in our criminal justice system. As of mid-September, Lewis became a full-time member of the DA staff.

DA Scarpino explains, “For witnesses and victims, sitting through interviews and preparing for trial is a very stressful time, especially for child witnesses, victims of domestic and elder abuse, and victims of sexual assault. Retelling and reliving those moments can be extremely difficult. Medical professionals have confirmed that having a dog to comfort them, whether in meetings or in court, can help relieve that stress. We are delighted to bring this extra special level of care to those who need it most. Lewis is a great addition to our Office and the work we do for the people of Westchester.”

Lewis is a 2-year-old Labrador retriever and his trained handler is Assistant District Attorney Brian Bendish of the Superior Court Trial Division. Bendish took three weeks of specialized training to bond with Lewis and learn the 40 advanced commands Lewis responds to. The training consisted of intensive lectures, hands-on training, and multiple examinations in order to acquire public certification. Training is ongoing, requiring strict consistency and structure implemented by ADA Bendish to ensure Lewis adheres to his trained behaviors. As part of his work, Bendish will attend all appointments with Lewis, issue his commands, and oversee the dog’s daily needs.

ADA Bendish said, “Lewis is an exceptional animal. He is amazingly calm and sweet. He is trained not to approach anyone unless he is told to. I really look forward to seeing how his easy demeanor will de-stress situations for our victims and witnesses. I am really excited to continue to integrate Lewis into the DA’s Office and let him do this important job going forward. I think he is just a great addition to our Office.”

Lewis was raised and trained by the nonprofit Canine Companions for Independence and has been granted to the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office free of charge. It’s estimated that his two years of training and that of his handler costs roughly $50,000, paid for by donations to Canine Companions. The cost of his ongoing care and feeding is being taken care of by private funds within the Office. Every Division is delighted that Lewis is onboard. Canine Companions is the nation’s first and largest service dog organization, training dogs for special service roles since 1975.

“Canine Companions is thrilled to be partnering with the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office. Our continued connection working with our NYS District Attorneys is exemplified by the newest addition of Facility Dog Lewis,” said Debra Dougherty, Executive Director, Canine Companions for Independence Northeast Region. “Facility Dog Lewis’s sweet and very loyal demeanor paired with his handler will be a huge asset to their community, working with vulnerable victims and witnesses. Lewis will bring much-needed smiles and support to families in the criminal justice setting, as well as bridging a much-needed gap between the community and the system.”

Concepts in Clay: Artists of Color
Online Virtual Exhibit
October 26 – December 31, 2020

Concepts in Clay features the work of eight Black Artists, and brings together a collective voice that speaks about a variety of themes and processes as part of the continuum of artists of color working in clay in the US today. Clay is the vehicle that amplifies these voices, and within this collection, these artists not only share their work with us, but their thoughts on what present-day America means to each of them. As we move forward in turbulent and uncertain times in our society at large, this exhibition marks a place in time in the contemporary clay artist field.

The artists selected here make clay works that are wide ranging in the treatments of surfaces, processes, forms, materials and subject matter. This collection also investigates a variety of themes unique to the Black experience in America, from human relationships and interactions, identity and image of self, social justice and activism, to the outward expression of inner experiences.

With an exhibition statement by Paul Briggs, these artists also share their words with us to enhance the experience of visiting an exhibition online, another benchmark in our times.

Co-Curator Paul Briggs, is originally from New York and is presently an Associate Professor of Art Education at the Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, MA and Director of the historic Saturday Studios Program. Paul has exhibited widely across the US, and his work is in several private collections, as well as being featured in several educational and ceramics publications.

Halloween Drive-In at Croton Point Park: The Addams Family and Goosebumps https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/events/5085-halloween-drive-in-at-croton-point-park-the-addams-family-and-goosebumps5085-halloween-drive-in-at-croton-point-park-the-addams-family-and-goosebumps https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/events/5085-halloween-drive-in-at-croton-point-park-the-addams-family-and-goosebumps5085-halloween-drive-in-at-croton-point-park-the-addams-family-and-goosebumps

The Croton Point Park parking lot will be transformed into a drive-in theater, presenting The Addams Family (PG, 2019) on Friday, October 9, and Goosebumps (PG, 2015) on Saturday, October 10, allowing movie-goers to enjoy classic, family-friendly films in a socially-distanced way.

The movies are presented by New York-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital as part of Westchester County Parks’ Screenings under the Stars series.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said, “This year we have established socially distant drive-in movies as another desirable form of family-friendly entertainment, and we are delighted to partner with NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital in presenting two classic fall movies at Croton Point Park. I am grateful for the generosity of our partners who make such programming possible for the families of Westchester.”

“NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital is pleased to sponsor this socially distanced Halloween family activity. We believe in and support the communities we serve and look forward to partnering with Westchester County on other family friendly programs in the future,“said Stacey Petrower, President of NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital.

The Addams Family tells the story of an eccentrically macabre family that moves to a bland suburb where Wednesday Addams' friendship with the daughter of a hostile and conformist local reality show host exacerbates conflict between the families. In Goosebumps, a teenager teams up with the daughter of young adult horror author R. L. Stine after the writer's imaginary demons are set free on the town of Madison, Delaware.

Both movies will be ticketed-admission events, with purchase available by online pre-sale only.

Tickets go on sale for The Addams Family on Tuesday, Sept. 29 at 2 p.m. online at https://wcparks.ticketleap.com/driveincroton/

Tickets are $20 per car and there will be limited capacity following distancing protocols. Goosebumps tickets will go on sale at the same link on Wednesday, Sept. 30, also starting at 2 p.m.

Moviegoers will be asked to maintain a six-foot distance from others when exiting their vehicles, and to wear a mask at all times when outside their vehicles. No gatherings will be permitted. Exiting your vehicle will be permitted when using the port-o-sans, which will be available and will be serviced routinely. Hand sanitizer will also be available.

New York-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital’s Screenings under the Stars is presented by Westchester County Parks and Sharc Creative with Westchester Parks Foundation, and support from Entergy, Westchester Talk Radio, 100.7 WHUD, 107.1 The Peak, Hamlethub, Robison, LLP, Tompkins Mahopac Bank, Inspiria Outdoor Advertising, and Westchester Magazine.

Amler named a COVID-19 Hero who worked tirelessly in fighting the Coronavirus pandemic 

Westchester County’s Health Commissioner, Sherlita Amler, MD, has been named a COVID-19 Hero in Westfair’s 2020 Doctors of Distinction Awards. Amler, who has served as Westchester County’s Health Commissioner for the past nine years, is being honored for her exceptional efforts to keep the public healthy and safe during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. Since the onset of the pandemic in March, Amler has continued to be a true hero on the front lines, and was an integral part of stopping the spread of COVID-19 throughout Westchester County.

Amler said: “Westchester was one of the first true epicenters of the Coronavirus pandemic in the country beginning with a cluster of cases in New Rochelle – our County had never before seen a contagion like this one. But, our public health team stepped into action immediately, putting aside every other responsibility they had to address head on this crisis as it emerged in our community. We are enduring a difficult year in 2020, and I am honored to be one of many who are being recognized in Westfair’s 2020 Doctors of Distinction Awards.”

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “Dr. Amler has done a tremendous job in helping Westchester County overcome the Coronavirus pandemic, and she has done so with a professionalism and compassion that is undeniable. I am extremely proud that she has been recognized as one of Westfair’s 2020 Doctors of Distinction, an honor that is so well deserved especially during what has been such a trying year for our communities and residents.”

The annual award ceremony, which will take place virtually this year on Thursday, September 24, celebrates extraordinary health care providers who have gone above and beyond to provide top-quality care and service to patients in Westchester and Fairfield counties.

National Voter Registration Day on the Fourth Tuesday in September urges citizens to register to vote. Make your vote count!

More than 300,000 Americans registered to vote in the inaugural day the observance in 2012. That number jumped to 800,000 in 2018. The day helps to ensure eligible voters register in their districts each year. The awareness campaign provides valuable information for each state, too. Timed ideally a few months before some of the bigger elections of the year, the day places information in the hands of the voters at the right time.  

There are hundreds of local, state and national organizations driving the day and bringing it to you, too. Partner organizations help also by coordinating thousands of public events to bring awareness about ballot initiatives, local elections, and voter registration.

HOW TO OBSERVE #VoterRegistrationDay

If your right to vote means anything to you, make sure you’re registered. While registration isn’t required in every state, every state has minimum requirements. Knowing what they are and being prepared to vote is an important part of a democracy.

Learn about your voter rights and requirements. Be informed by checking where your polling place is. You can also learn more about mail-in voting. If you have any questions about voter registration, all the answers are conveniently located in one place. Each state has different requirements. So, if you’ve moved recently, be sure to know the requirements where you live. Make your vote count. Visit www.nationalvoterregistrationday.org to learn more.

Register to vote and use #VoterRegistrationDay to post on social media.


The National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) established the first National Voter Registration Day on September 25, 2012.  In 2014, the NASS established the Fourth Tuesday of September as the official day for National Voter Registration Day.

Brewster HamletHub has been recognized, along with other Village businesses for their work in keeping Village and Town residents informed and safe during the Coronavirus pandemic.

As businesses are slowly starting to be able to open their doors again, the Village of Brewster extended a thank you to all of the businesses who were considered essential and stayed open or were asked to stay open during this time.

In June, the Village of Brewster Board of Trustees asked the public to nominate businesses in the Village who have supported the community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. These businesses may have donated food to those in need or were complying with social distancing rules and staying open to serve the public and/or keeping them well informed.

Brewster HamletHub and it's Editors were considered and recognized as a vital and essential part of the community for keeping Village residents informed throughout the emergency.

The Village of Brewster honored these businesses at their July 15th Board of Trustee meeting with proclamations. Due to Social Distancing guidelines a large ceremony was not possible but Village representatives held small gatherings on the sidewalk in Front of Village Hall on Main Street and even went to some establishments to deliver the proclamations such as the Brewster Public Library who they cited as an instrumental service for their patrons and residents. Hamlet Hub was recognized on Monday August 24th by Trustees Mary Bryde and George Gaspar along with Village Clerk Michelle Chiudina for their work at Village Hall.

The following businesses were recognized at the July 15, 2020 Board of Trustees Meeting:

Brewster Hamlethub

Brewster Public Library

Moonlight Cafe

Kobacker's Market

Country Kitchen

Pizza Place

Bob's Diner

The Brewster Shipping Center

Cuomo: NY wil set up Covid-19 test sites at NYC area airports https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/places/5073-cuomo-ny-wil-set-up-covid-19-test-sites-at-nyc-area-airports5073-cuomo-ny-wil-set-up-covid-19-test-sites-at-nyc-area-airports https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/places/5073-cuomo-ny-wil-set-up-covid-19-test-sites-at-nyc-area-airports5073-cuomo-ny-wil-set-up-covid-19-test-sites-at-nyc-area-airports

Governor Andrew Cuomo, in a press conference on Long Island Monday, said that NY State will set up Covid-19 testing sites at both John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia Airport in NYC.  

“We’re actually setting up testing sites at our airports. We’ll be able to do faster testing of people coming in, including hospital staff," Cuomo said.

Cuomo said the coronavirus testing sites at JFK and LaGuardia will be set up by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and New York City Health + Hospitals and also operates the City’s Clinics and Public Hospitals.

After being hard hit at he beginning of the pandemic NY has lowered its daily infection rate to  amongst the lowest in the nation. The state has also implemented a mandatory 14 day isolation on travelers from states with high infections rate. 

Travelers who do not comply with the state’s order requiring travelers to file a contact tracing form upon arrival in NY could face a fine.

Both New York City and NY State have been cracking down on travel from these high risk states for weeks, asking airlines to hand out the forms, mandating hotels have their guests fill them out, and setting up checkpoints at bridge and tunnel crossings in NYC.

The Port Authority of NY & NJ, who own and operate the area's three biggest airports (Newark in NJ along with JFK and LaGuardia) have been working with local and state officials regarding the testing sites but Cuomo did not give specific details as to when the sites would ready to operate.
