Governor Cuomo Signs Legislation Establishing September 11th Remembrance Day and Moment of Silence at Public Schools https://news.hamlethub.com/scarsdale/politics/3884-governor-cuomo-signs-legislation-establishing-september-11th-remembrance-day-and-moment-of-silence-at-public-schools3884-governor-cuomo-signs-legislation-establishing-september-11th-remembrance-day-and-moment-of-silence-at-public-schools https://news.hamlethub.com/scarsdale/politics/3884-governor-cuomo-signs-legislation-establishing-september-11th-remembrance-day-and-moment-of-silence-at-public-schools3884-governor-cuomo-signs-legislation-establishing-september-11th-remembrance-day-and-moment-of-silence-at-public-schools

on September 9th, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed legislation (S.4166A/A.1801B) establishing September 11th Remembrance Day. The new law allows for a brief moment of silence in public schools across the state at the beginning of the school day every September 11th to encourage dialogue and education in the classroom, and to ensure future generations have an understanding of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks and their place in history. The law is effective immediately.

"9/11 was one of the single darkest periods in this state's and this nation's history, and we owe it to those we lost and to the countless heroes who ran toward danger that day and the days that followed to do everything we can to keep their memory alive," Governor Cuomo said. "By establishing this annual day of remembrance and a brief moment of silence in public schools, we will help ensure we never forget — not just the pain of that moment but of the courage, sacrifice and outpouring of love that defined our response."

Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr., said, "I am grateful for Governor Cuomo's approval of my 9/11 observance bill. I am hopeful that this new law will mean that the significance of the tragic events of September 11th, whether it be the loss of loved ones or the largest rescue operation our nation ever witnessed, will be forever acknowledged by school students too young to have witnessed this life-changing day."

Assembly Member Stacey Pheffer Amato said, "Students graduating from High School as part of the Class of 2019 were just newborns during the terrorists attacks of September 11, 2001, and soon enough there will be no students in the national public school system born at the time of 9/11. By mandating a brief moment of silent reflection every year, we may ensure that future generations will better understand this day and its significance in our history. Governor Cuomo understands the importance of educating our children about our state and country's history. I applaud him for signing this bill into law and for his continued partnership."

Scarsdale Library’s Foreign and Independent Film Series on Sept. 12 https://news.hamlethub.com/scarsdale/events/3880-scarsdale-library-s-foreign-and-independent-film-series3880-scarsdale-library-s-foreign-and-independent-film-series https://news.hamlethub.com/scarsdale/events/3880-scarsdale-library-s-foreign-and-independent-film-series3880-scarsdale-library-s-foreign-and-independent-film-series

Scarsdale Library’s Foreign and Independent Film Series on Thursday, September 12th at 1:00 PM the library will present Styx.

Premiering at the Berlinale, where it opened the Panorama Special section, STYX is a work of unrelenting intensity and technical brilliance. ER doctor Rike (Susanne Wolff) embarks on a one-woman solo sailing trip to Ascension Island in the Atlantic. When Rike comes across a sinking ship of refugees, she is quickly torn out of her contented world and must make a momentous decision. Aptly named after the mythological river that separates the living from the dead, STYX is an astute modern-day parable of Western indifference in the face of marginalized suffering. Carrying practically the entire film, Wolff is riveting as a woman pushed to her physical, psychological and moral limits.

With the main building on Olmsted Road closed for a major renovation, the session will be held at the Scarsdale Alternative School Wayside Lane next to the Girl Scout House. Please register at scarsdalelibrary.org or call 914-722-1302.

Wartburg Awarded Green Business Partnership Award https://news.hamlethub.com/scarsdale/places/3878-wartburg-awarded-green-business-partnership-award3878-wartburg-awarded-green-business-partnership-award https://news.hamlethub.com/scarsdale/places/3878-wartburg-awarded-green-business-partnership-award3878-wartburg-awarded-green-business-partnership-award

Gregory Poole-Dayan and Paul Lippolis

Wartburg was recently awarded the Green Business Partnership Award through the Green Business Partnership (GBP) and The Business Council of Westchester making Wartburg the first long term care facility to receive this certification in Westchester County.  GBP recognized Wartburg for demonstrating “extensive accomplishments across all program areas:  organization commitment, energy, waste management, transportation, land use and water” and for “going above and beyond in their commitment to environmental sustainability and corporate citizenship.”

This isn’t the only first for Wartburg, a premier senior residential and healthcare facility in Mt. Vernon, NY, with a long-standing commitment to protecting the environment.  In 2014, the facility’s Rehabilitation and Adult Day Care Center become the first health care facility in Mount Vernon to gain Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification, immediately followed by the same certification for their Friedrich Affordable Housing. Friedrichs was the first new construction building in Mount Vernon to become LEED certified. This certification signifies that a building is exemplary in conserving energy, lowering operating costs and being healthy for occupants. 

Wartburg has also created a “Green Committee” as part of its campus-wide Green Initiative.  This group, made up of staff, board, residents and volunteers, helps ensure all members of their community are educated about the company’s efforts to promote environmental sustainability and be involved in supporting their environmental goals.

As part of this initiative, Wartburg upgraded approximately 5,000 fixtures across its 34-acre campus to include 11,000 new LED lamps, earning them an inaugural Eco Award from County Executive George Latimer and the Westchester County Department of Environmental Facilities. The awards recognize outstanding contributions to the County’s local environment and sustainability made by residents, students and schools, municipalities, businesses and other organizations.  Benefits from this project include outdoor lighting that is 40 percent brighter than previous lighting, helping to improve visibility and safety for its residents, clients and staff.  This change will save 736,004 kWh a year, which is the equivalent of 548 metric tons of greenhouse gas, by replacing fluorescent and incandescent bulbs with LEDs.  These savings are also equivalent to 599,285 pounds of coal burned and 61,635 gallons of gasoline consumed.  In addition, the savings also translate monetarily, and the project, assisted by Con Edison rebates and incentives, will pay for itself in decreased energy costs after 18 months.

Lippolis Electric, Inc. of Pelham partnered with Wartburg on the replacement of all florescent and incandescent bulbs with LEDs on the Wartburg campus.

Wartburg has also conducted a campus-wide energy assessment to further determine ways to reduce their environmental footprint as well as save energy costs including analyzing heating and cooling, appliances and renewable.  

“We, at Wartburg, are committed to reducing our environmental footprint and promoting environmental stewardship at all levels of our organization. Our goal is to minimize our organization’s impact on the environment and maximize our future generations’ ability to live, work and play in our shared natural environment, with equal access to clean air, clean water and natural resources,” said Dr. David J. Gentner, Wartburg President & CEO. “We will strive to minimize pollution and waste, conserve energy and water, protect habitat and support renewable energy resources, purchase environmentally friendly products and ensure environmentally preferable transportation by contracting with vendors and supplies to meet our standards and environmental commitment.”

Westchester County Partners with Family Services To Get Kids in Need Back to School Ready https://news.hamlethub.com/scarsdale/charities/3876-westchester-county-partners-with-family-services-of-westchester-for-backpacks-to-school-program3876-westchester-county-partners-with-family-services-of-westchester-for-backpacks-to-school-program https://news.hamlethub.com/scarsdale/charities/3876-westchester-county-partners-with-family-services-of-westchester-for-backpacks-to-school-program3876-westchester-county-partners-with-family-services-of-westchester-for-backpacks-to-school-program

Annual Program fills 1,200 backpacks with new school supplies for low income Westchester County children

Helping local children start the new academic school year ready to learn, Westchester County partnered with Family Services of Westchester to launch the “Backpacks to School” Program for 2019. Each summer, The Sharing Shelf, a program of Family Services of Westchester, runs a county-wide drive between May and August to raise the funds needed to purchase new school supplies for elementary, middle and high school students. The Sharing Shelf is seeking to raise $35,000 to fill at least 1,250 backpacks with new binders, notebooks, folders, crayons, pencils, pens and paper this year.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “When we think back on our ‘first day of school’ memories from childhood, we probably think about our Mom or Dad dropping us of at school with a new book bag, filled with new school supplies for the year. But for many kids living in Westchester County, a backpack filled with colourful notebooks, a lunch box, pencils and pens, is something they can’t afford. A new backpack stuffed with school supplies can make all the difference, and this program helps us to do just that.”

The Sharing Shelf Program Director Deborah Blatt said: “The Sharing Shelf believes that every child deserves to start the school year prepared and ready to learn. Keeping children in school is one of our goals. We are proud to partner with Westchester County to ensure that so many low income children will walk through the school doors next month with a new backpack and new school supplies. We hope each child will have a smile on their face and confidence in their step, putting them on the path to learning and future success."

Businesses and employees who have already pledged their support for the 2019 backpack drive include Regeneron, Schott, SwissRe, Dechert LLP and the Westchester County Department of Corrections union.

In 2018, the Sharing Shelf distributed over 1,450 backpacks and over 35% were requested by Westchester County’s Department of Social Services. Nearly 60,000 Westchester County children live in low-income homes, and 36% qualify for free or reduced price lunch. Meanwhile, the average family spends $122 on school supplies, a sum that can be out of reach for low-income families and those living below the poverty level in Westchester County.

The backpacks will be distributed before Labor Day to children throughout Westchester County. To find out more about how to help or to donate, please contact The Sharing Shelf Program Director,

Deborah Blatt at thesharingshelf@fsw.org or (914) 305-5950. You may also visit http://www.fsw.org/backpacks.

Songs for Seeds, the award-winning young children’s introduction to music program, will celebrate its fifth anniversary with a free concert – as part of the Scarsdale Sidewalk Sale – at 11 am on Saturday, July 27th in Chase Park.

Named “Best Children’s Music Program” by Westchester Magazine, "Best Music Class" by New York Magazine and "Most Magical Music Class" by Red Tricycle, Songs for Seeds hold classes, year-round, for toddlers 6-and-under, at the Scarsdale Synagogue on Ogden Road.

Songs for Seeds features 45-minute classes led by a three-piece live band of teacher/musicians who encourage kids to sing, play instruments, and dance. At the end of class, the students are invited to sing with the band (karaoke style) and play the band’s instruments (guitar, keys and drums).

Each week the children experience music, instruments and language from a different culture. Magnetic art murals are created by the children during the sing-along of well-known nursery rhymes, magic tricks are used to practice numbers and counting and a wheel is spun to reinforce the names and sounds of animals. By mixing original kids rock 'n' roll with adult contemporary music, the band is sure to please little ones and their adult parents!

The band is also available for young children’s birthday parties all over Westchester.

Dana Goodman-Fisher, a native of Scarsdale, brought the toddler music program to the village in 2015. Songs for Seeds has other Westchester locations in Port Chester and Armonk.

For more information about the concert or Songs for Seeds visit: https://songsforseeds.com/ny/scarsdale/ or contact Dana Goodman Fisher at dana@songsforseeds.com
