BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. - A birthday celebration in honor of Support Connection’s 20 years of service to the community was held last Wednesday at The Briarcliff Manor.

The Yorktown-based not-for-profit organization, which provides support to breast and ovarian cancer patients, was founded in July 1996. In the two decades since Support Connection was established, it has helped thousands of women and families cope with the challenges that result from a breast or ovarian cancer diagnosis.

Support Connection’s co-founders, Nancy Heller and Rich Adamski, both of Yorktown Heights, were on hand for the festivities, as was founding Executive Director Katherine Quinn of Shrub Oak.

“It’s hard to believe that 20 years has gone by,” Quinn said.

The celebration included unlimited wine, cheese and hors d’oeuvres. There were also music, raffles and, of course, a birthday cake.

In the spring of 1991, after answering an ad for a judicial race placed in the local Yorktown paper, I was talked into the unenviable position of running for Yorktown councilman as a Democrat in our then solidly Republican town.

Having been a practicing lawyer since 1974, I felt confident about my qualifications for the position of town judge, but being elected to the Town Board was quite ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...
