At a full of love and surprise-filled party celebrating 10 years of publishing, Grace Bennett, publisher of Inside Chappaqua magazine, received a proclamation from County Legislator Michael Kaplowitz declaring last Friday, March 15, Inside Chappaqua Day. In the same evening at Crabtree’s Kittle House, Bennett read a statement she received from for Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton with whom she traveled as a member of the press last summer throughout Africa and Turkey. Secretary Clinton recalled dancing together in various locations… “a farm in Malawi” and “even with a foreign minister in Pretoria….” Tonight, more than ever, you deserve to dance…” stated Clinton, to the delight and applause of attendees. Bennett had the first dance with her father, Jacob Breitstein, an 89-year-old Holocaust survivor. Bennett also raised more than $5,000 the same evening for the Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center in White Plains where she serves as a board member.
