To the editor,

Another year almost gone, the elections are over and the holidays are upon us. For some of us it is a time to be thankful, huddle with our families and friends, reflect on our accomplishments, acknowledge our failures and set goals for the coming new year. We will be celebrating the successes of our community, its businesses, residents and community service organizations as well as hoping those in attendance will make good connections to others.

Please join us at the historic Hilltop Hanover Farm on Dec. 13 between the hours of 6 and 9 p.m. for a Meet and Greet and holiday gathering. Local businesses will be providing food and refreshments. Local, county and state elected officials will be on hand to meet and greet you as well as members of the Friends of Hilltop Hanover Farm Board and staff.

Space is limited, and you must RSVP to Bob Giordano,, 914-874-4347, to attend. All are welcome. A $10 donation at the door is suggested to support the Friends of Hilltop Hanover Farm’s agricultural and environmental education programs for school-age children.
