With the holidays upon us in full swing, you were bound to miss some top news this week in Dobbs Ferry, Irvington and Hastings-on-Hudson. But don’t worry, we’re here to make sure you don’t miss it twice.
Here are some of this week’s more notable headlines:
1. Snow Plans: Despite the year's first school cancellation on Tuesday, Dec. 10, snowfall has not put a dent into Dobbs Ferry, Irvington or Hastings-on-Hudson 2013-2014 school calendars – yet.
2. SoHo East Back for the Holidays: SoHo East, a “contemporary tabletop and jewelry retail company,” has set up shop at the Dobbs Ferry Historical Society, located at 12 Elm Street. Its display will remain there through Jan. 4, 2014.
3. Take your tires elsewhere: A 27-year old Bronx man is being charged with multiple violations after illegally unloading tires at the dead end of Southside Avenue, near the Metro North train station in Hastings-on-Hudson, police said.
4. What’s with our new homepage banner at Patch? What you see in the photo is a paper patchwork of memorial notes in Newtown, Connecticut. They were pulled together shortly after the elementary school shooting there. Last year, well-wishers from all over the world came to Newtown Patch by the thousands. One year later, it seems fitting that Newtown knows again that it’s not alone. We invite you to take a second and share a "Note for Newtown." This is a special section on Newtown Patch where you can let the people in that town know they’re still in your thoughts. Click here to leave a Note for Newtown.
