Did you know that the local New Rochelle Humane Society (which services 17 neighboring towns) is offering a 50% discount on all adoption fees for those wonderful senior (slightly older but really lovable) homeless pets or those who have been in the shelter for 4 months or more?
It’s also not too late to post your beloved pet’s name in the Memory Tree which will be on display at the New Rochelle Humane Society from December 1 through January 4! With only a $5 donation, the Humane Society will write the name of your loved one (or a friend’s loved one) on a white or red ribbon and place it on the tree. Or, you can make a donation in a friend’s name and the Humane Society will send a card to the lucky recipient.Read more
The City of New Rochelle's official Christmas Tree went dark over the weekend as thieves made off with the light bulbs that had adorned the tee. In a daring and despicable act of holiday humbug right out of Dr. Seuss's The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, the tree was stripped bare.
The tree has been shining each night since the annual holiday lighting ceremony on December 3rd. The event sponsored by the New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Business Improvement District and the City of New Rochelle Parks Department celebrated the Holiday season for all faiths. Rabbi Wohl, Father Francis and Reverend Wearver spoke of the significance of the lighting-up the darkness in this time of seasonal observances.

County Legislator Jim Maisano held a highly successful Toys for Tots event earlier today at Dudley's Parkview Restaurant. Guests donated hundreds of toys while overflowed the large receiving box set aside to collect gifts to support the annual U.S. Marines Reserve Toy Drive.
“This is a lot of presents for a wonderful program of the Marine Corps Reserve," said Maisano, a retired Marine. "I am so proud to see this kind of support from so many Westchester residents".
Over the past 60 years the Toys for Tots program has delivered hundreds of millions of toys to needy children.
Santa Claus stopped by the Hugh Doyle Senior Center this afternoon, spreading Christmas cheer and candy canes to the good little seniors enjoying the Center's Christmas Party. Santa even took some time to get on the dance floor and shake a leg with a bevy of willing partners.
