YORKTOWN, N.Y. – The annual Fireman’s Day Parade, one of Yorktown’s oldest traditions, returned Wednesday, June 21.

Yorktown was joined at its parade by dozens of other departments throughout the county, including Mohegan Lake, Ossining, Millwood and more.

After the parade wrapped up, many made their way over to the Fundraising Carnival located at Commerce Street and Veterans Road. The carnival, which stayed open until Sunday, featured rides, games and food for all ages.

As a 100 percent volunteer fire company, this is the company’s biggest fundraising event of the year. The parade and carnival were first held in June of 1920.

Packing Heat

“Are you leaving me?” asked my husband one night as he surveyed the contents of my closet on our bed.

“What? No!” I said. “Why would you think that?”

“Every single article of clothing you own is laid out on our bed,” he replied. “So I have to assume you are either leaving me or you have joined the armed services and if that’s the ...

What More Can Murphy Do?

June 21, 2018

In his letter “Murphy should address gun laws” (June 14), Bernard Lipsy praises Sen. Terrence Murphy and then condemns him for not keeping guns away from people that shouldn’t have them. I was wondering just what new laws he would propose? How many more laws are needed? How about enforcing the numerous laws already on the books, which, by the way, isn’t being done?

What ...
