Arts on Third Newsletter

Arts on 3rd Newsletter

On September 22, 2013, Westchester’s premier and largest arts and entertainment festival will kick off its 12th year. The festival, which began with a humble attendance of approximately 3500 people, has grown to over 40,000 festival goers. The arts on third festival began in 1999 as a precursor to Mayor Ernest D. Davis vision to transform 3rd Street into an arts district. Mayor Davis then formed a task force to research the development of an arts district. This blue ribbon task force, called the Third Street Task Force was composed of each sector of the community and became the impetus behind the Arts On Third Festival. Art was the vehicle used to revitalized the area and as a catalyst to social change. The festival brings together hundreds of volunteers and is the largest, single community effort in Westchester, New York.

Volunteers Wanted to Install Smoke Detectors

Most of us are familiar with the devastation that lies in the wake of fire, and while no one knows when such a disaster will strike, we can, as responsible members of society, do things to prevent possible loss of property and/or life. For those of you who are interested in volunteering for a worthwhile cause that will help others in our community, consider joining the Mount Vernon Fire Department, the Office of Civil Defense Department and the American Red Cross at a Home Fire Preparedness Campaign recruitment drive on Thursday, April 9 at 6:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at City Hall.  

Come out and join us for a life-saving fire safety campaign to install smoke detectors in high risk areas of our city. Please share this invitation with members of your organization and feel free to distribute the attachments within your neighborhood.
