Please adopt the hydrant near your home or business and keep it clear of snow this winter.  If a hydrant is buried, it takes a firefighter valuable time and energy to shovel it out to gain access while a fire continues to burn.  Minimally, make sure the hydrant is cleared of snow enough to be visible from the street. Even better, clear the snow three feet all around the hydrant so firefighters have enough room to connect a hose.  Thank you for your cooperation.

A group of local AmeriCorps members are going to be renovating the children’s nursery room at the First Presbyterian Church at 34 South Highland Avenue in Ossining. The church community is very generous in allowing us and various community groups to utilize their space to host events, programs, and support groups. We are looking to clean and paint the room, install floor mats for safety, and fill it with nice, developmentally appropriate toys, as a token of our appreciation. So far, we have done fundraising and have received some generous toy donations. However, we are still looking for donations of children’s foam floor mats, paint brushes, rollers, and trays, and gently used toys including dolls, trucks, blocks, puzzles, games, dress up clothes, books, etc.  (The floor mats would especially be appreciated!) If anyone has any of these items and is willing to donate or for more information: please contact Erin Maher at 914-502-1437 or emaher@ood.org. The project will be completed on February 23-24th. Thank you for your support!

Community Singing Group “Old Mill Singers” Invites New Members To Join For its 40th Anniversary Show The Old Mill Singers invites teens and adults who enjoy singing to join them as they prepare for their upcoming show in June 2011.  They will be celebrating their fortieth anniversary of performing shows for the Westchester community.  They will include a variety of songs from past concerts, as well as songs that highlight their future.  A largely amateur chorus, The Old Mill Singers tackle most styles of music – pop, jazz, Broadway, folk, ethnic, novelty acts and even some original numbers composed by our members.  They may do a little bit of classical, but unlike most local choral groups their focus is on lighter fare. 

Rehearsals began on Tuesday night, January 18, 2011, but its not too late to join.  Weekly rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings at 7:30pm at St. Paul’s-On-The-Hill Episcopal Church, 40 Ganung Drive in Ossining.  They have no formal auditions so if you like to sing, come give them a try and sit in on a rehearsal. The ability to read music is not required -  just the ability to sing in tune in a group.  President John Massey says, “I probably couldn’t get into most of the choruses in Westchester County, but director Gary Bratt has the skill to take a hodge-podge of just plain folks and make us sound good.”  In fact, that is a hallmark of who they are – an eclectic mix of some very good singers and some just very good people – who like to have fun with music and with each other.  Gary Bratt has been their director for most of the forty years they’ve been around.  They now have about sixty active members, men and women of all ages and from all walks of life.  Also, they have a separate children’s chorus that performs in the concerts, so Old Mill is truly a family affair. 

In addition to our semi-annual concerts, The Old Mill Singers perform at community functions and local nursing homes.  They also sing a portion of our holiday concert in the lobby of the Met Life Building in New York City, entertaining commuters as they head for Grand Central Terminal.   See them on the web at www.oldmillsingers.org or on Facebook.  Prospective members should contact our Membership Chairman, Sharon Brana at oldmillsingers@gmail.com or 914 762-3765.

About the Bald Eagle in the Hudson Valley

Each winter, between December and March, bald eagles from Canada and northern New York and New England fly south to the lower Hudson Valley to feed on fish and waterfowl found in unfrozen waters.  The bald eagle, which was considered an endangered species prior to 1995, shed its federal threatened status in 2007.  Biologists estimate that about 150 bald eagles overwinter in the Lower Hudson Valley, but according to the Bedford Audubon Society this number is growing!  Bedford Audubon Society annually conducts Lower Hudson Valley surveys of roosting bald eagles at several sites along the River and at the New Croton Reservoir.  Their research indicates a steady increase in the number of bald eagles wintering in this area.  Studies also show that the lower Hudson Valley is one of the largest wintering areas for bald eagles in the eastern lower 48 states outside of the Chesapeake Bay region. According to Birder’s World, the Hudson Valley was ranked # 18 on their list of best bald eagle viewing spot in the country. Every year the bald eagles’ return affirms the continued health of the Hudson River and nearby habitats for wildlife and people – and a reminder that people working together can make a difference!  About Teatown Lake Reservation Teatown Lake Reservation is a nonprofit, regional environmental organization with an 893-acre nature preserve and education center located in the Towns of Yorktown, Cortlandt, and New Castle, New York.  Teatown’s mission is to conserve open space and to educate and involve the regional community in order to sustain the diversity of wildlife, plants and habitats for future generations.  Teatown is devoted to conserving biodiversity, teaching ecology and promoting nature-friendly living throughout the Hudson Hills and Highlands.  For more information, contact Lydia Howie at (914) 248-1112 or (914) 659-5048.
