Here are a few notes about happenings in Scarsdale this week:
Purim Fun at Westchester Reform Temple
Westchester Reform Temple celebrated Purim this year on Sunday, February 28 with Purim Palooza: Drive Thru Edition! More than 100 cars and families experienced the holiday story, music and games - all from their cars.
Apiary Café at Scarsdale Library
The new Scarsdale Public Library includes a wonderful cafe located right in their new entranceway. Apiary at The Library offers wholesome and delicious light breakfast items, lunch, sandwiches, salads and meals — plus sweets, snacks and hot and cold beverages. It is the perfect spot to grab a bite while picking up a book or enjoying a myriad of other activities at the library.
Until the library is fully open, you can order online or by phone and pick up your food at the library.
Beginning Monday March 8th, high school students will start to have kids in school four days a week for full days on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Students will attend two full days a week and they can order from the cafeteria and eat inside or out and can leave campus to get lunch. Let students know that Apiary is a good option within walking distance to the high school.

In forty years the Harrison family has lived in three homes in Scarsdale including 10 Murray Hill Road, 55 Garden Road and currently for the last 20 years at 65 Fox Meadow Road. The family is looking to down size in Quaker Ridge and Edgewood to complete their Scarsdale round trip.
Bob and his wife Terri have been active in Scarsdale since arriving in Scarsdale in August,1979 with two sons, Zach and Alex, starting at the Heathcote School and graduating from Scarsdale High School on their way to Penn State and Cornell Universities to successful business careers. The boys have brought their families back to Scarsdale with four grandchildren for Bob and Terri.
Bob and Terri have volunteered in many Scarsdale activities over the years for the youth and the Scarsdale Community. Bob served as Village Board Trustee and established the Scarsdale Taxpayer Alert in 1989 to date to keep village and school tax increases to a minimum with good services. Bob led the effort to save and restore the Middle School Tennis Courts in 1983-1984 and raised $ 25,000 to SAVE THE COURTS. He started the Scarsdale Summer Youth Tennis League as the volunteer director of the Summer League in 1984 that has served over2,000 youth to learn the Lifetime sport of tennis during his 36 years as Director. Bob is currently leading the fund raising effort to help pay for the new comfort station at the Middle School Field and Tennis Courts to be finished for this summer.
We wish all our Scarsdale families to be well during this difficult pandemic period so we can celebrate our families milestones.
