2018 New Rochelle’s Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot (5 K Run/Walk)

The Third Annual New Rochelle Turkey Trot is scheduled for November 22nd (Thanksgiving Day!)  at 8:45 am for Tots 5 and under! You do not have to run, you can walk, but you must have fun! The nicest part of the event is that all proceeds go to local charities  in New Rochelle and Westchester County so it is a win win for all!

From the event organizers”

“The New Rochelle Turkey Trot has become a family and community focused event. In 2017, over 1400 participants (90% local) toed the start line in the beautiful historic district of New Rochelle allowing us to donate over $25,000 to our charity partners. Our hope is that our race becomes an annual tradition where families and friends gather to inspire our kids and young adults in order to help those who are less fortunate, but we need your help.

YAI’s 18th Annual Westchester Wine & Food Tasting Benefit

Expertly hosted and (lovingly) organized by both Bonnie Dougan and Mary Gambino, Co-chairpersons of YAI’s annual event, there was a  great attendance last night at the Westchester Marriot Hotel in Tarrytown, New York from 7-9 p.m.

There was a raffle for an Apple Watch, great Silent Auction items to choose from,  and raffle tickets  to tempt everyone!

A quote for the evening from Maya Angelou ” In Diversity there is Beauty and there is Strength.”  Per YAI ” We are committed to enhancing diversity and inclusion of all people, regardless of race, religion, national origin, sexuality or gender identity. We recognize that building an agency where diversity and inclusion are encouraged and celebrated will benefit not only YAI but the individuals we support in their pursuit of opportunities for living, loving, working and learning. Through embracing our uniqueness and celebrating our diversity, we make the community stronger.”

 

YAI  (Young Adult Institute) supports individuals in achieving the fullest life possible by creating opportunities for living, loving, working, and learning. Founded in 1957, YAI’s comprehensive services now support thousands of people everyday. ”

It was a wonderful evening, and I hope they were able to raise funds for their great organization.

“Happiness comes when you work and words are of benefit to yourself and others. Buddha”

It’s Fall and Lavender Time!

I started ‘harvesting’ my lavender a few years ago, and each year I plant yet another lavender plant. They are hardy, bloom in July  and quickly become large and quite fragrant.  I then cut off the long stems, and allow them to dry before removing the seeds. I cannot lie though, I also purchase bags of lavender seeds from a herb company in San Francisco  to augment my bounty as I love to give the lavender sachets (which is what I make) to all of my clients, friends and people I meet at open houses.  It always feels nice to give.

New Rochelle is GREAT!

I hope you join me in celebrating this accomplishment. Yet even as we celebrate, we understand that a leader in innovation cannot afford to rest on their laurels. While our tools today remain unmatched, we already look forward to what’s next. Make sure to keep an eye out for a “Save the Date” and further details on our upcoming company event next April, where we are set to announce major news on the technological front.
