MAHOPAC, N.Y.— Mahopac School District’s SEPTO (Special Education Parent-Teacher Organization) held its annual fundraiser, Cookies with Santa, last month. The event was held Dec. 9 at the Lakeview Elementary auditorium.

Santa, of course, headlined the event. Kids had the opportunity to have cookies and hot chocolate while they waited to see the jolly old elf.

There was also a crafts table for the kids. But there was plenty to do for the grown-ups as well. Vendors such as LuLaRoe, Rodan and Fields, Arbonne, Tastefully Simple and Perfectly Posh, to name a few, were on hand selling their products.

Blue-Collar Blues

I graduated from college in my mid-20s after a series of interesting jobs: driving a truck for UPS; working at the Todd-Hoboken Shipyards in Jersey stripping WW II Navy destroyers (destined to be filled with wheat and floated along the Upper Hudson as part of the mothball fleet); and serving in the U.S. Army infantry during the Vietnam War. I also unloaded boxcars of canned goods and hawked beer ...

A Community of Charities

Chambers of commerce like those in Yorktown, Somers, Mahopac-Carmel and elsewhere have a vital purpose in supporting and promoting a healthy, growing economy composed of local businesses that are predicated on the profit motive.

At the same time, points out Deb Milone, executive director of the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce, “Our region has a large nonprofit business ...

Walk This Way

My husband and I had been circling the narrow cobblestone streets of a small village in Spain for 15 minutes looking for parking, with no success. Every spot was either “no parking” or “no standing” or some other restriction we couldn’t make out because the signs were in Spanish and the only two words we knew in Spanish were parking and standing.

Finally, we ...
