Meet the Candidates Reception in Greenacres (Wed. 13 Mar, 2019 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm)

Candidate for Mayor Marc Samwick and Candidates for Board of Trustees Jonathan Lewis, Seth Ross, and Rochelle Waldman announced a full schedule of events in advance of the Tuesday, March 19 Village election.

The candidates were selected in January as the result of a rigorous due diligence process conducted over the course of two months by the independently-elected Citizens Nominating Committee. They are running as a slate under the banner of the “Scarsdale Citizens’ Non-Partisan Party” (SCNP), the traditional ad hoc, all-volunteer campaign committee organized to support the candidates nominated by the CNC. According to campaign chair ML Perlman, “The community benefits from having a peer-researched and endorsed slate of candidates on the ballot each year. Our Village’s century-old nonpartisan tradition has provided sound governance and experienced leadership on our Village Board.”

The committee has organized “Meet the Candidate” receptions at the homes of supporters in each of the five elementary school districts to provide an opportunity for Scarsdale voters to hear directly from the candidates about their backgrounds and qualifications as well as their visions for leadership over the challenging years to come. More importantly, these events represent a “listening tour” – the opportunity for the candidates to hear residents’ questions, concerns, and ideas for our village government.

The five “Meet the Candidate” events are currently featured on the SCNP website, and interested attendees are encouraged to RSVP: https://www.scarsdalecitizens.org/events

The format will be in the style of NPR’s “The Moth” radio show and will feature original stories from individuals that span the generations.

According to Executive Director Jill Serling, “this year’s lineup, carefully curated by Board Co-Chair Leesa Chalk Suzman, will feature storytellers from greater Westchester who will recount true stories with humor, charm, and emotion.” Emceed by Moth StorySLAM winner Sandi Marx, the event will include entertaining vignettes from local residents, Scarsdale School District teachers and alumni. Audience members can expect engaging anecdotes from:

● Micaela Blei, two-time Moth GrandSLAM winner, co-founder of the Moth's Education Program for high school students, popular keynote speaker, and former third grade school teacher in Brooklyn

● Rabbi Jonathan Blake, Senior Rabbi at Westchester Reform Temple, regular columnist for the Union for Reform Judaism, and featured in the indie documentaries 51 Birch Street and 112 Weddings

● Will Maldarelli, Scarsdale Middle School social studies teacher, coordinator of the annual Scarsdale Middle School speech contest, and faculty advisor to Scarsdale High School’s student speech and debate club

The hope is that these stories will create a sense of community and remind the audience of their shared humanity.”

Complimentary Tasting of the Wines of Spain at Zachys (Sat. 16 Mar, 2019 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm)

winesofspainComplimentary: A Fabulous Selection of Wines From Spain
Saturday March 16th from 12:00pm - 4:00pm
Scarsdale - Zachys Wine and Liquor, 16 East Parkway, Scarsdale

On Saturday, March 16th, Zachys invites you to a completely-Spanish tasting from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. A staff favorite, the 2016 Raventós i Blanc Blanc de Blancs is a unique Spanish sparkler that is “marked by the typicity of its place of origin, the Vinya del Llac, a vineyard over 40 year’s old, which allows (the producers) to obtain a structured, fresh and complex sparkling wine… It is a Blanc de Blancs due to its three native white grape varieties: Macabeu, Xarel·lo and Parellada.” The 90-point rosé version “includes a dash of (native grape) Monastrell for color.”

La Rioja Alta’s 2009 Viña Ardanza Reserva (80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha) is the current release of this flagship wine. Part of the beauty of the wines of Rioja is their late release. This wine already has almost 10 years of age under its belt! It is aging beautifully and will continue to do so for another decade… and then some.

2016 Raventós I Blanc de Nit Sparkling Rosé

90 points, Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast: “A light pink color and smoky, lightly woody aromas introduce this racy rosé sparkler that includes a dash of Monastrell for color. Nectarine, red apple skin and citrus flavors are fresh and briny, while this is steady and doesn't break down on the finish; ideal for fried chicken (trust us).” 12/18

2009 La Rioja Alta Reserva Vina Ardanza

93+ points, Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate: “It was initially closed, shy and serious, riper and a little darker than the 2008 but still very balanced, serious and harmonious. The palate combines power with elegance, with some tannins, focused flavors, some chalky texture and a rustic touch that gives it character.” 2/18

Bronx River Documentary Film Screening (Sun. 24 Mar, 2019 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm)

BronxRiverThe Scarsdale Historical Society is proud to announce a new documentary film, A River Returns, a History of the Bronx River. The event will be held at the Little Theater at Scarsdale High School on Sunday, March 24th at 3pm. This screening is sponsored by the Scarsdale Historical Society, The Scarsdale Forum, The Scarsdale Public Library and the League of Women Voters Scarsdale.

The beloved Bronx River has played a significant role in the rise of towns and modern suburbs in Westchester and the Bronx. Our film tells the story of the river’s remarkable history, sorrowful decline and the unique efforts to reclaim the river by the communities it flows through.

The Bronx River travels from Valhalla in Northern Westchester for 16 miles through towns in Westchester and for 8 miles in the Bronx before it flows into Manhattan’s East River. Once teeming with fish and wildlife, the Bronx River Valley was the hunting grounds for Native Americans and the fur traders. The river powered the mills of the first colonists and factories. However, by the 1890's the Bronx River had become a toxic brew of industrial and human waste.

The first efforts to protect the river resulted in the construction of the Bronx River Parkway and a greenbelt of parks in the early 1900's that transformed towns in Westchester. The second major clean up began in the 1970's when local activists from blighted neighborhoods in the South Bronx and river advocates joined forces to restore the river.

Today, the Bronx River continues to be cared for through an alliance of private and government groups and by the efforts of volunteers, students, educators and environmentalists. Those efforts have become a model for the restoration of urban rivers across the nation.

Join us for the inspired story of the return of the Bronx River and a Q&A with the filmmakers and the historians interviewed in the film.

This is the third film produced by the Scarsdale Historical Society with the combined teamwork of Barbara Shay MacDonald, the Society's Historian, and Lesley Topping, a New York based filmmaker, who grew up in Scarsdale. The two previous films include A Tour of the Cudner-Hyatt House and Scarsdale in the 18th and 19th Century: From Hardscrabble Farms to Gracious Estates. They can be watched on the Scarsdale Historical Society’s website: www.scarsdalehistoricalsociety.org.

More about Technion

The American Technion Society supports visionary education and world-changing impact through the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. Our investments in the Technion’s growth and innovation advance critical research and technologies that serve the State of Israel and the global good.

The story of Israel is intertwined with the story of the Technion. From 1924 with 16 students mainly in road building, the Technion essentially built the country - even before Israel was a State. Technion engineers were responsible for the nation's infrastructure, including roads, housing for immigrants and the water carrier system. In later years it launched Israel's aerospace industry and played a vital role in Israel’s defense, and drove the country's evolution from an exporter of oranges to exporter of software. Today the Technion continues to provide leading-edge technologies in medicine, energy, computer science and more both in Israel and around the globe. READ MORE

SHS Drama Club to Present "The Laramie Project" (Fri. 29 Mar, 2019 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm)

laramieThe Scarsdale High School Drama Club will present, their spring play, The Laramie Project on Friday March 29 and Saturday March 30 at 7:30 pm.

The Laramie Project is a documentary-style play that analyzes the death of Matthew Shepard, an openly gay college student who was brutally murdered because of his sexual identity. The play was created by playwright/director Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project.

The theater group traveled from New York to the town of Laramie, Wyoming - just four weeks after the death of Shepard. Once there, they interviewed dozens of townspeople, collecting a wide array of different perspectives. The dialogue and monologues which comprise The Laramie Project are taken from interviews, news reports, courtroom transcripts, and journal entries.

The interviews delve into the reactions of people who knew Matthew, people who knew his murderers, and other citizens of Laramie who perhaps did not personally know Matthew or his murderers personally, but can still speak about the reactions of the town as a whole.

Performances will be in the Scarsdale High School auditorium on Friday, March 29th and Saturday, March 30th at 7:30pm. Tickets are available at scarsdalelaramie.eventbrite.com or at the door.

sports swap for webScarsdale PT Council Sports and Formals Swap

The annual PT Council Sports and Formal Swap returns this year on Saturday, March 30, 2019, from 10am to 12pm at Scarsdale Middle School! The best deals on sports equipment and dressy clothing for youngsters will be coming soon to Scarsdale Middle School.

PT Council will be accepting gently used sports equipment (no skis), musical instruments, and youth formal wear. This event is a great spring cleaning chance to rid your basements, attics, and garages of all those outgrown bicycles, baseball and softball bats, tennis rackets, and lacrosse and field hockey sticks. Clear your closets of fancy apparel that no longer fit your growing children.

Merchandise drop off will be at Scarsdale Middle School, 134 Mamaroneck Road, from 5 to 7pm on Friday, March 29, 2019, and from 8 to 9:45am on Saturday, March 30, 2019 (before the Swap opens to shoppers).

This year for the first time we will be selling reusable bags for people to take home all of the reused/recycled items they are purchasing! Recycling and Sustainability is a very important mission for the Scarsdale PTC therefore we are constantly striving for ways to make our events more “green”. We think this year’s addition of reusable bags will not only add another method in which we are working to further our Sustainability efforts but will also make the event more convenient for our attendees.

Donors may obtain a receipt for tax purposes. All proceeds support the Scarsdale Council of Parent-Teacher Associations, the 501(c)(3) umbrella organization over all seven Scarsdale PTA units. PT Council informs and advises the PTAs as they fulfill their mission of promoting the welfare of their students.

If you have questions about this event, please send an email to our co-chairs Megan Simon and Danielle Shelov at scarsdalesportsswap@gmail.com.
