The Library needs volunteers to help at the food and game stations at the annual Memorial Day event

Esteemed Neighbors:

The Library needs volunteers to help at the food and game stations at the annual Memorial Day event following the parade. Interested volunteers should call the Library at 351-2207 x 18 (ask for Florence). The event is from about 11-3 on Monday May 29 but any chunk of time is welcomed!

This is a great event that really helps to support our local library. If you can’t volunteer please consider attending. There’s lots of fun activities for the kids and grown ups too!

SCHOLARSHIP TO TUXEDO HIGH SCHOOL
A scholarship is open to students who are non-residents of the Tuxedo Union Free School District in Grades 9-12 who wish to attend the George F. Baker High School in Tuxedo, NY on a full-time, non-resident tuition basis for the 2015-2016 school year and subsequent years. These students must show demonstrated interest and achievement in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) -related programs/activities. The scholarship program is funded through a $450,000 donation from the Sonne Family’s Vincent Mulford Foundation (this foundation will be exhausted by year’s-end).

Applications for scholarship, which range from $4,000-$6,000 for the school year, are currently available on the George F. Baker High School website (www.tuxedoufsd.org) and can also be accessed on the Rockland Community Foundation’s website (www.rocklandgives.org).

It seems the deadline has passed, but since this was just sent to me on July 2, I encourage you to contact Rockland Gives to see if they will extend it.

Our Neighbors Need Some Help

This weekend, two families in town lost their homes to a fire. The town has organized a donation drive for clothing and household items. They can be brought to the American Legion Hall in Southfields (16 Orange Turnpike). Monetary donations can be made to: http://www.gofundme.com/se6e2pg and gift cards are being accepted at the Tuxedo Police Department. For more information and/or to donate large items, contact the town at 351-2265.

Our town is served by the great work of all-volunteer fire departments and it is times like these that remind us all of the sacrifice and bravery of these firefighters, our neighbors.

Our local fire department needs our help too and are looking to increase the number of volunteer firefighters. If you think you would be interested, or just want to find out more about joining the Sterling Forest Firehouse, please attend the open house this weekend:
