This year’s New Castle Community Day will be held on September 21st. All those who attend will experience a lovely day of food and amazing attractions that people of all ages will enjoy.
“We’re going to have rides for the kids. We’re going to have musical entertainment also, we’re going to have some singers and hopefully some local bands,” said Pam Thornton, President of the Chappaqua Rotary Club, and Director of Chappaqua Library.
Community Day is the perfect way for new comers to get to know the community, and for longtime residents to reacquaint themselves with all the great organizations that the town has to offer.
“It’s a day when local organizations get to exhibit what we do. It tells people what we do for them, for the community. That’s the best part of it. The New Castle Historical Society, the Chappaqua Library, the Chappaqua Orchestra, and others… we all come out to show the community what we can do for them,” said Thornton.
All proceeds will be given to local charities. Between 50-70 local organizations will be present.
“A lot of people come. This is a terrific community event. It’s a wonderful, wonderful community event. There’s good food and a wonderful sense of community. Wonderful opportunity for people to get together and enjoy their community,” said Penny Paderewski, Town Administrator at Town Hall.
“It’s a great event for letting the residents see some of the organizations that are working on behalf of the community. All the different organizations are given the chance to meet the residents and highlight what they’re doing for the community,” said Rob Greenstein, head of the Chappaqua-Millwood Chamber of Commerce.
Community Day begins at 11 a.m. and ends at 4 p.m. So mark your calendars for September 21st, and enjoy a fun filled day that celebrates all the New Castle community has to offer.
