Tuxedo Park Library, 227 NY-17, Tuxedo Park, NY 10987

Paul Watkins (writing as Sam Eastland) will be interviewed by publisher, friend, and Tuxedo resident, Glenn Young about his recent book in his Inspector Pekkala series of Novels, “The Beast in the Red Forest”.

“A standout historical series. Eastland depicts his fictional Stalin as more than a James Bond villain, painting him as a conflicted, lonely tyrant whose retribution against slights both real and imagined makes him a very dangerous opponent.” – Kirkus Reviews

Next Weekend – A Better Tuxedo Community Forum
Saturday, September 19 from 9:00am – 12:00pm
GGM, Elementary Common Room, 1 Tornado Drive, Tuxedo, NY 10987

Earlier this year, a group of community leaders and public officials met to discuss plans and ideas on how to move forward as a community and how to improve the place that we live and work. From these meetings, a new coalition formed whose goal is to create A Better Tuxedo.

Now, we want to hear from you – the public – and we hope that you will join us to share your ideas on what you like about Tuxedo, what you’d like to change about Tuxedo, and how we can work together to create a new energy here in town.

The entire Tuxedo community is invited to attend our Tuxedo Community Forum on September 19th at 9:00 AM.

NTRA Annual Meeting Reminder – Thursday October 23, 7:30pm American Legion

Hi everyone!

Just a reminder of the annual meeting this Thursday, October 23 at the American Legion off Orange Turnpike (behind the old Corner Deli and the Auto Body shop). Click here for the location on Google Maps.

In addition to the annual meeting requirements (where we must elect officers and update members about the activities of the organization) we are using this opportunity to provide some information about issues of interest to our area including:

  • Updates in regards to items brought before the town governance over the last few months, such as: Sterling Forest Casino, Watchtower request for changes to the International Paper property they now occupy, Tuxedo Farms and the YMCA, the budget deficit, and others
  • The annexation issue in Monroe, which will affect MW Central School District (Presentation by Emily Convers, Jon Allegro and Mary Hanson)
  • The possible location of the Pilgrim Pipeline

Since the latter part of this meeting is informational, it is open to the public. If you think there is someone who is not a member of NTRA who might be interested in attending, please forward this to them (and encourage them to join!). The informational part of the meeting will be held immediately after NTRA’s annual meeting.

Thanks and I look forward to seeing you all on Thursday!

Kristy
