With so many community groups and civic organizations offering a helping hand to those in need, late in 2009, members of the Kids Club of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow believed that a coordinating entity could bring greater success to all of the groups’ pursuits.

A Sleepy Hollow man became the 28th New Yorker to claim a New York Lottery prize of $1 million or more this year.
Let’s face it: when we read about air pollution and contaminants in our drinking water, it is natural to feel powerless to address these issues. They depend on government regulation from afar. Even where regulation exists, the truth is that laws may be on the books but not enforced. Or, enforcement efforts may suffer from budgetary cuts. All this has implications for the health of the public.
