Pulling together a May issue in the midst of 10th year party planning and festivities was no small feat…but of course, I’m sure glad I did. I’m thrilled to be prominently featuring one of my best friends in Chappaqua…Jodi Levine, owner of Jodi’s Gym… After 30 years of bringing gymnastics into the lives of families in the city, northern Westchester and beyond, she is a good friend to many, and beyond that, an incredible business woman and mentor. Happy Mother’s Day, Jodi!
A past IC cover girl, Chappaqua’s famous “good enough mother,” Rene Syler, is featured again…with all that she’s up to, sorry, but “good enough” just doesn’t begin to describe her! And there’s also a spotlight on Dawn Greenberg. If you haven’t heard about all the various initiatives Dawn seems to singlehandedly take on–including the spearheading of the October 5 Chappaqua Children’s Book Festival, you’re either not on social media or you’re not shopping local nearly enough!
Toward that end, we’ve produced a first time ever pull out “Mother’s Day Must Have/Must Do” guide highlighting our sponsors best suggestions. Carine Feist and her son Mike went all out especially in spotlighting Mother’s Day dining delights, in words and in so many pics, so very grateful for their efforts. We also used the guide as a vehicle to support the Neighbor’s Link Festival de Primavera on May 11. Check its back cover for details!
Here’s hoping you find this issue filled with at least half as much love that I felt at my party at Crabtree’s Kittle House on March 14. While I churn out these issues year after year, it can sometimes be hard to tell how Inside Chappaqua is received. So now, well after the party, let’s just say I can happily embark on a second decade of publishing with renewed confidence that this little magazine is still appreciated, internet options and all. Have a very happy Mother’s Day.
