walksignThere's only a few days left to take the Scarsdale Forum's Municipal Services committee Traffic Survey, www.ScarsdaleTrafficSurvey.com. The Survey is closing at midnight on November 30. The objective is to bring everyone's concerns about conditions on our local roads, sidewalks, school drop off lanes and parking areas to the attention of the Village. We also need the input of our youth who are just beginning to drive with a permit, or who already have their license, or who experience problems as pedestrians or riding their bicycles.

The Survey analysis, to be done by residents who are knowledgeable working with survey data, will be an integral part of the Forum committee's continuing follow up to our 2015 traffic report recommendations.Some signals and signage have been improved since then, but more can and should be done. There should be zero tolerance for pedestrian knock downs, vehicles passing stopped school buses, and speeding. The Village-wide chaos on the roads the day before Thanksgiving and on ordinary days too – including impassible gridlock, excessive speeding, and illegal turns through red signaled crosswalks – is also unacceptable.

Participation in the survey by everyone in the community will ensure that the data helps us make progress towards safer streets. The Survey can be taken on a computer or smart phone at www.ScarsdaleTrafficSurvey.com.

MiracleTwo young actors from Scarsdale will be on stage in the Yorktown Stage production of Miracle on 34th Street. Alyssa Emily Marvin, Greenacres 4th grader, who has appeared in off-Broadway shows and toured Asia last year with the international tour of Annie, is playing the role of Susan and Greenacres 4th grader Caleb Paul is in the production as well.

Here's the story: Kris Kringle takes on the cynics in this musical adaptation of the beloved holiday classic. Single mother, Doris Walker, doesn't want her six-year old daughter Susan's head filled with romantic notions. Their neighbor Fred Gailey tries to woo Doris by charming Susan and taking her to see Santa Claus at Macy's, where Doris works. Doris is not impressed -but when it turns out Macy's Santa may in fact be the real Kris Kringle, a wave of love spreads across New York City that melts even the most cynical hearts. Filled with humor, spectacle, and such beloved songs as "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas"," this joyous, heart- warming musical is pure family entertainment. The perfect holiday treat!AlyssaMarvin

raizenDavid Raizen, President of the Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps sent the following letter to Scarsdale10583.com.

Dear Neighbor, Many Scarsdale residents do not submit donations of support because they mistakenly believe that Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps is funded by direct tax dollars. With no direct taxpayer support and an annual budget of $600,000, we are running in the red.

This year our annual fund drive has received an extremely poor response. We have received only 467 donations from the 5,356 households in our community.

Please make a tax-deductible donation to support your Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps by going to our website: ScarsdaleVAC.com and click donate, or send a check to PO Box 92, Scarsdale, NY 10583.

I also encourage anyone who is interested in learning about SVAC to email me at draizen@ScarsdaleVAC.com.

Sincerely,
Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps
David Raizen, President

Please donate on-line at www.ScarsdaleVAC.com
