Please be advised that at the current time, only the Pfizer booster has been approved by the FDA for most populations. The Westchester Health Department is waiting for approval of the Moderna booster before it will schedule appointments for those who received the Moderna shots initially. You cannot “mix and match” the vaccines and boosters, so Moderna recipients must wait until the appropriate booster is available. I will keep you updated about this ongoing situation.

Westchester to Kick Off Italian-American Heritage Month Tomorrow at Kensico Dam Plaza https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/events/5209-westchester-to-kick-off-italian-american-heritage-month-tomorrow-at-kensico-dam-plaza5209-westchester-to-kick-off-italian-american-heritage-month-tomorrow-at-kensico-dam-plaza https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/events/5209-westchester-to-kick-off-italian-american-heritage-month-tomorrow-at-kensico-dam-plaza5209-westchester-to-kick-off-italian-american-heritage-month-tomorrow-at-kensico-dam-plaza

To commemorate Italian-American Heritage and Culture Month, which is celebrated to honor the achievements and contributions of Italian immigrants and their descendants living in the United States, a flag raising ceremony will be held on Tuesday, October 5 at 3:15 p.m. at Kensico Dam Plaza. The heritage month is in October to coincide with Columbus Day, the American national holiday traditionally celebrated on the second Monday in October.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said, “Many Italians-American residents live in Westchester County because this is where their ancestors chose to settle down and work hard to provide for their families, dating all the way back to the early 1900s at Kensico Dam as it was built by Italian immigrant masons with stone quarried from the adjacent Cranberry Lake Preserve. I feel especially close to this part of our history as my great-grandparents were part of that migrate wave, from Benevento, Italy. Raising the Italian flag at Kensico Dam Plaza is a reminder of the important role Italians had in making Westchester what it is today.”

Westchester County Parks Commissioner Kathy O’Connor said, “Kensico Dam Plaza is home to where we celebrate many of the cultures that make up Westchester County. Having the Italian flag here for October representing Italian-American Heritage and Culture Month is just one way parks can help honor the diversity of Westchester.

Italian-American Heritage Month celebrates the distinguished cultural contributions of Americans with Italian lineage.

It’s not too late to participate in Support Connection’s Annual Support-A-Walk for Breast and Ovarian Cancer this Sunday, Oct. 3.

The Support-A-Walk was founded twenty-seven years ago by local residents as a way to focus attention on breast and ovarian cancer, and to raise funds for Support Connection’s free, year-round support services for those living with these diseases. Since the organization was founded in 1996, thousands of people locally and across the country have received help from Support Connection.

Once again this year, the theme for the Support-A-Walk is “Walk With Us, Wherever You Are.” Support Connection invites people to walk in their own town or city, neighborhood, or even on a treadmill at home.

For those interested in walking at FDR State Park, more info can be found here.

It’s easy to participate. Walk on your own, or with family, friends, neighbors. Up until the day of the Walk, there’s time to set up a personal online fundraising page to seek donations. Pages can be created here and will accept donations through the end of this year.

You can also donate directly to the Walk by check or cash, and online: supportconnection.org/donate-now. Donations are welcome even after the Walk.

The Support-A-Walk is the organization’s most important annual fundraiser. 88¢ of every dollar donated directly funds their free breast and ovarian cancer support services. Support Connection does not receive funds from any national cancer organizations including Relay for Life, Susan G. Komen, or Making Strides.

To learn more, visit supportconnection.org or call 914-962-6402.

West Harrison based company bids nearly $6 million dollars

(White Plains, NY) – Westchester County accepted bids from Laura Li Industries, LLC totaling $5.91 million dollars, awarding the West Harrison based company three County projects. Designated as a Minority/Women-owned Business Enterprise (MWBE), the construction company is spearheaded by Laura Entre, and the designation allows for eligibility for developmental benefits. More than 300 MWBE’s registered with Westchester County in 2020.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “We want to empower women entrepreneurs to participate in County projects. We’ve laid out a goals for registered MWBE’s in order for them to be successful, including purchasing plans in construction, professional and non-professional services and goods. We hope a large contract like this will hopefully encourage other businesses like Laura Li Industries, LLC to aspire to work with Westchester County and know the goals we set up for these businesses to succeed can be accomplished.”

Laura Li Industries, LLC formed in 2015 and will be responsible for resurfacing and improving Theodore Fremd Avenue, from 300 feet east of North Avenue to Purchase Street in the City of Rye. Work begins September 15, with a target date of completion on May 15, 2022.

Resurfacing work will also be done along Willets Avenue from King Street to Putnam Avenue in the Village of Port Chester. Work is scheduled to begin October 1, with a target date of completion in May 2022.

The company will also work to improve Westchester County parkland at the Blue Mountain Reservation addressing utilities for the trail lodge including sewer, water and electrical work. Construction crews will also replace a wood bridge and pave pathways that extend into the Town of Cortland and the City of Peekskill. Work is scheduled to begin November 21, with a scheduled date of completion in December 2022. 

Managing Member of Laura Li Industries Laura Etre said: “Women are underrepresented in the construction industry. With my background in public administration and attention to detail coupled with my familiarity of Westchester, I know our company can make these projects shine. We love working to improve the County in which we live.”

Department of Public Works and Transportation Commissioner Hugh Greechan said: “Laura Li Industries, LLC has proven itself to be a valuable partner in addressing the County’s infrastructure needs. We look forward to continuing that partnership and creating new partnerships with other MWBE’s on these critical projects.”

Director of Minority and Women-owned Business Development Martha Lopez said: “It is the goal of Westchester County to use its best efforts to encourage, promote and increase participation of business enterprises owned and controlled by persons of color or women in contracts and projects funded by all departments of the County and to develop a policy to efficiently monitor such participation.”

Laura Li Industries, LLC has worked with Westchester County before on various school fields, rehabbing the Elm Street Bridge in the Village of Tuckahoe and site work on the south concourse of the Westchester County Airport.

Entre says she’s currently working on obtaining her commercial driver’s license so she can help haul some of the supplies and equipment for these upcoming projects.

Tarrytown Music Hall Presents Free Community Event https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/places/5199-tarrytown-music-hall-presents-free-community-event5199-tarrytown-music-hall-presents-free-community-event https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/places/5199-tarrytown-music-hall-presents-free-community-event5199-tarrytown-music-hall-presents-free-community-event

The Tarrytown Music Hall would like to invite the community to attend a complimentary performance of their annual Rock the Hall contest on Friday, September 10th at the historic venue at 6 pm.

Celebrating the event’s 3rd year (Rock The Hall was put on hold in 2020), The Music Hall is thrilled to bring the community together with a free concert as a "thank you" for the generous support and donations from the community and local businesses during their fourteen-months of closure.  A celebration is in order, and Rock the Hall fits that requirement perfectly!

“Rock the Hall has always been about fantastic music, camaraderie, and community-building. What better way to show our gratitude to the community than to host an event featuring six regional music acts competing to be this year's winner of Rock The Hall,” Alison Woods, Sponsorship Director exclaimed.  “We had over 120 bands enter, which made the final showcase a complicated process. In the end, we had ten preliminary judges which were very democratic, and made decisions based on a variety of factors. We always wanted to make sure we were offering a range of artists and styles. While every act deserves an opportunity to participate, due to time constraints we needed to keep the number to six” Woods explained.

Emcee, John Platt, WFUV will introduce the opening band performed by John Ciulla and The WBS Band, which begins at 6 pm.

Westchester County District Attorney’s Office Revamps Communications Team with Female Leadership https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/politics/5197-westchester-county-district-attorney-s-office-revamps-communications-team-with-female-leadership5197-westchester-county-district-attorney-s-office-revamps-communications-team-with-female-leadership https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/politics/5197-westchester-county-district-attorney-s-office-revamps-communications-team-with-female-leadership5197-westchester-county-district-attorney-s-office-revamps-communications-team-with-female-leadership

Westchester County District Attorney Miriam E. Rocah announces the appointment of marketing and communications veteran Jess Vecchiarelli as her Director of Communications and Westchester-based journalist Anna Young to serve as Public Information Officer.

“Upon becoming District Attorney, I pledged to make this office more transparent and more responsive to the needs of the community,” DA Rocah said. “This new communications team will continue to improve the way we connect with the public, and their extensive experience and dedication will help spread our mission of safety, accountability, integrity and justice.”

Vecchiarelli, who has spent over 20 years working in the public, private, education, and non-profit sectors, was the former Director of Ossining for Fair Funding. There she developed and led community advocacy efforts, which raised enough awareness among elected officials to get the most underfunded school district in New York State – the Ossining Union Free School District – on a successful path to financial stability. She previously worked as the Director of Marketing and Communications for Summit School at Nyack, and held management roles at MasterCard, where she performed in both nationwide and global markets. Additionally, Vecchiarelli has served in marketing and communications positions at Corsearch and the American Museum of Natural History.

Vecchiarelli graduated from Marist College with a B.A. in Communications.

“It’s an incredible time in our society for social justice issues as we navigate and shape a post-pandemic world,” Vecchiarelli said. “Being a community advocate, Westchester native and busy mom provides me with a unique perspective that will enhance the delivery of our Office’s message and mission. It is my privilege to work with District Attorney Rocah, and to help further her goals of bringing transparency to the work of our Office.”

Young is an award-winning journalist and the former Digital Editor for Examiner Media, a weekly publication that covered both Westchester and Putnam counties. She worked previously for The Sun News in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, providing in-depth coverage on government, politics and community news.

Young, a Yorktown Heights native, has also written for various local news outlets where she reported on community features, government, politics, crime, education and breaking news. A graduate of SUNY Purchase College where she received a B.A. in Journalism, Young has received accolades from both the New York Press Association and the South Carolina Press Association.

“Working at the forefront of local journalism in both New York and South Carolina, especially during these unprecedented times, has been an incredible experience and a true privilege,” Young said. “But I am deeply honored to join the District Attorney’s Office in this capacity with my colleague Jess Vecchiarelli to represent a dynamic and resilient trailblazer like District Attorney Mimi Rocah as she forges a path to a more equitable criminal justice system for all in Westchester County.”
