saleThe Town of Greenburgh will sponsor  an old fashioned block party and garage sale at the Greenburgh Town Hall, Saturday, October 9th, 2010 from 11:00am until 5:00pm. Proceeds from the event will benefit the town’s youth skating program.

The parking lot at Town Hall will be converted into a welcoming festival-like space with vendors, music and activities for children. If it rains, all activities will be moved inside town hall.

Vendors, professional and non-professional, are invited to participate. To participate, vendors must pay a $50.00 (fifty dollars) participation/ table space fee. Professional, “For Profit” vendors, retailers or established food businesses, will be asked to provide a NYS Sales Tax Certificate of Authority. Any established “Not-For-Profit” organization will be asked to provide a NYS Sales Tax Exemption Certificate. All other vendors, including residents who wish to participate as individual vendors, will not be required to provide either.

The Dry Sale is just like a flea market event – participants may sell a variety of items (legal) that may be found at any flea market type event. Vendors must provide their own “set-ups,” i.e., items for sale, decorations, chairs and a table – not to exceed 3 feet wide and 6 feet long – as well as a table covering (optional). Vendors will be responsible for setting up their individual space, as well as breaking it down at the end of the event and will be held responsible for taking all personal items with them at the end of the day. There will be ample free parking available for all.

Reserve your table space by Friday, September 17, 2010. The $50.00 table space fee must be paid by Friday, October 1, 2010.

dole1On September 10, 1960, Barrie McVickar Baxter married Karl Craigie Panthen at St. James the Less Church in Scarsdale, NY. They both began their lives having been born in New York City in 1935. Over the course of the past fifty years they have raised four children, Donald, Karen, Kris and Kathryn. They have one daughter-in-law, Carolyn Panthen and two sons-in-law’s, Gary Dole and Mark Webb. They are the proud grandparents to three grandsons, Kyle Craigie Panthen, now a senior in high school; Jordan Henry Panthen, a freshman in high school and Karl Edward Westgate, a sophomore in high school.

Through the years they have enjoyed traveling to various parts of the globe, socializing with family and friends and engaging in various community activities. Karl is still working, currently at Wells Fargo. Barrie spends her time just as busy, through the Woman’s Club, ceramics, choir and continued community volunteering services. They frequently travel to visit with their children and enjoy watching the grandsons grow up. Karl and Barrie have remained active members of St. James the Less Church and just earlier this year Karl was given the Wally Owen Award for dedication and service.

dole3They currently reside in Yonkers, New York. Instead of a party for just one evening, they decided they would spend their anniversary traveling to London and then cruising back across the Atlantic on the Queen Mary 2.

So, Scarsdale and those in the surrounding areas, please share with us in toasting Karl and Barrie Panthen as they celebrate this wonderful milestone in their lives and wish them continued safe travels and another wonderful fifty years!

Cheers Mom and Dad, we all love you and wish you the most happiness and joy that life has to offer, for that is what you have given to each one of us. Happy Fiftieth Anniversary!! Love, your children, children-in-law’s and grandsons.

perdestriancrossingIn response to recommendations in the Village Comprehensive Plan and a letter to , the Scarsdale Village Trustees are doing their part to increase the number of restaurants in Scarsdale Village.

One impediment to prospective restauranteurs in the Village has been parking requirements and Village fees that have made it too expensive for some to open. The Village Zoning code regarding Off Street Parking was last amended in 1989 and is now due for an update.

At the August 10th meeting of the Scarsdale Village Board, a resolution was passed to study amendments to the code. The Trustees have charged the Planning Board with looking into regulations from other municipalities and examining industry standards to come up with recommendations for new shared parking regulations.

In other news, new pedestrian signals will be installed at the intersection of Fenimore and the Post Roads as well as Mamaroneck and the Post Roads to make it easier to cross this busy street. In response to resident’s concerns about these intersections, Assemblywoman Amy Paulin made a request to the NYS Department of Transportation to install these pedestrian traffic signals and they agreed.

In order to do so, the state will need to use a small piece of Village land for installation of a traffic signal pole. The Village has granted the state the easements for the land and in exchange the state is paying Scarsdale $16,800.

It’s a win-win situation for residents and the Village.

The 2010 Summer Sidewalk Sale in Scarsdale Village on July 30, 31 and August 1 was better than ever. Three sunny days brought many local residents down to the Village to stroll, chat and enjoy great bargains. Local merchants displayed their goods in front of their stores and many area businesses and organizations took tables around the village and greeted passers-by. Lange’s set-up a full barbeque outside and served hotdogs and hamburgers, while firemen offered free ices in many flavors.

On Saturday, entertainers joined the fun. DJ Paul Vito of Music Mixers was on hand and balloon artist Scott Kazan delighted kids and adults too. An entire petting zoo was brought to Chase Park by The Nature of Things from North Salem, and kids could meet a big snake, turtle, ducks, and bunnies.


Retailers were also pleased with the turnout this year. According to Jennifer Flores of SpaceNK, “The weather was spectacular, we had more vendors than last year, and there was something for everyone -- from great deals to our petting zoo in Chase Park. Saturday was an especially great family day. Kids enjoyed petting the animals and wearing their balloon creations. The DJ kept the vibe upbeat and there was even a couple dancing in Boniface Circle! I don't think we could have asked for anything more. “
