There was fun anticipated for all on June 1; there’s also nothing sweeter than the sound of children of all ages enjoying carnival games and rides. And for 82 years, this time-honored tradition has been upheld in Chappaqua at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin’s Strawberry Festival. Live music, a petting zoo and vendors including those selling strawberry shortcake round out the fun-filled day. For so many area residents, it’s always a great way to start your summer fun and stock up on scrumptious strawberry jam.

The documentary Complicit will be shown on May 9 at the Chappaqua Performing Arts Center. The filmmaker, Ruth Kalish, will provide a post screening talk. A representative from HIAS will also speak about current immigration and refugee policies and issues.
Complicit follows the story of the SS St. Louis, which left Germany in 1939 and was refused safe haven from Cuba, the U.S., and Canada and had to return to Germany (the film Voyage of the Damned follows this story). In this documentary, the film puts the Roosevelt Administration on trial for their complicity in not allowing refugees to seek safe haven in the U.S.
Reduced price student tickets are available “in the hope that you will bring your children,” stated Michele Gregson, a founding member of the Friends of the Chappaqua Performing Arts Center.

My freshman year of high school, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. Because of annual imaging, her cancer was caught at an early stage and today she is cancer free. My brother Ben was in 7th grade at the time, and for his Bar Mitzvah project, wanted to help those less fortunate get the same kind of screenings our mom got. So, he created a 3 on 3 basketball tournament with a $25 fee to play, all proceeds going to Northern Westchester Hospital and their various cancer programs. We emailed friends and family, and the response we received was truly incredible. In the end, the tournament was a huge success and raised over $18,000!
Our family decided to make this an annual event. The 3rd annual “B-Ball for Boobs” tournament was on March 24th, at Horace Greeley High School and it was heartwarming to see after three years, the continuous support from our community. To date, we have raised over $40,000. We look forward to hosting this tournament for years to come!
