Printed below is a full list of all Stops & Times and to make sure everyone is at the right location awaiting Santa’s arrival, the location marker signs shown below will be posted at every stop.

The Poets Corner Civic Association has decided to donate money towards a snow blower to be used to help clear the snow for the elderly and infirm. If you are willing to commit to clearing the driveways and sidewalks for three of your neighbors, and becoming an official Greenburgh “Snow Angel” in the Poets Corner Community, a brand new snow blower will be at your disposal this winter. Funding for gas will also be provided.
If this seems like too much for one person to handle, why not team up with a neighbor? You can share the snow blower and then team up to do the snow angel work as well. If you have high school aged children, better yet! ” Team work makes the dream work!”
Supervisor Feiner will provide us with the list of neighbors that require snow removal.
Anyone interested in assisting with the program please contact Mona Fraitag at 914-946-1906
WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — ConEd may offer reimbursements to residents who had food and medicine spoilage as a result of power outages during the two nor’easters in early March. Together, the two storms caused more outages in Westchester than Hurricane Irene did in August 2011.
High, sustained winds and heavy, wet snow brought down trees and branches. Those trees and branches fell into overhead wires, bringing the wires, along with poles and transformers in many instances, down onto streets and sidewalks. The company brought in mutual aid workers from 20 states and Canada to work around the clock on untangling wires, removing trees and rebuilding a large portion of the electrical delivery system.
For reimbursement, there are certain requirements that must be met. Review the requirements prior to filing a claim to make sure you are eligible.
If food or medication went bad because of a residential outage, you can file a claim as long as it’s within 30 days of the outage. Send the form through one of the methods below:
Residential reimbursement is limited to food and medication spoilage. You may file a claim up to $515 for loss of food due to lack of refrigeration. All claims must include an itemized list and claims over $225 must include proof of loss (ex: receipts, cancelled checks, photographs of food, etc.) in addition to an itemized list.
Reimbursement for prescription medication lost due to lack of refrigeration is not included in the $515 maximum for spoiled food. You must include an itemized list and proof of loss (prescription label, pharmacy receipt, etc.). Con Edison may request authorization to verify the loss of prescription medication.
Commercial reimbursement is limited to perishable merchandise lost due to lack of refrigeration. You may file a claim of up to $10,200. Claims must include an itemized list and proof of loss.
CON ED NOTES: All claims are subject to review. Whether or not a claim is deemed valid depends upon the circumstances of the interruption and the damage incurred. Only claims resulting from a loss of power for 12 hours or more within a 24-hour period will be considered. Unfortunately, losses incurred as the result of an outage caused by conditions beyond our control (storms, floods, vandalism, etc.) cannot be honored. All reimbursement is governed by Con Edison’s [electric rate schedule].

The Town of Greenburgh will launch a food scrap recycling program later this fall. We are excited to join nearby communities in reclaiming the value of wasted food and creating nutrient-rich, carbon sequestering compost. The food scrap drop-off program is welcoming resident involvement in the form of a committee. We hope to see you at the first food scrap recycling committee meeting on Tuesday, October 24th, 7:00pm-8:30pm, Anthony Veteran Park, see details and RSVP here.
Consumers and the general public are increasingly conscious about how their food is grown and where it ends up. Approximately 40% of all food produced in the United States ends up in the waste bin or thrown away.
In partnership with the Town of Greenburgh, the Greenburgh Nature Center will establish a municipal food scrap recycling program this year. It will reclaim the value of food waste through composting while reducing the economic and environmental costs associated with treating food scraps as garbage.
The drop-off site will accept all food including; meat, dairy, bones, oil, fish, fruits, vegetables, bread, rice, pasta, egg shells, coffee grounds, tea leaves, and food soiled paper.
Here’s how it will work: residents of Greenburgh will empty their individual organics bin into the town’s commercial toters at Anthony F. Veteran Park. From there, the food scraps will be carted to a commercial compost facility where they will be processed into nutrient rich, carbon sequestering soil. That compost will help grow plants in gardens, parks, and farms.
