What an exciting weekend we had in town! The Bronxville School Homecoming events and our athletes’ Homecoming weekend contests were so successful. Our local merchants added to the fun with special deals and sponsorships all week long. To quote the Athletic Council announcement, many thanks to “…the community businesses that offered Homecoming Week Lunch Specials for the students. Also, the restaurants that held Community Service events, and the shops that offered percentage of sales donations or food supplies for the concession stand, thank you. It is this partnership of school and community that has made this weekend so exciting for everyone.” The Chamber of Commerce is proud that so many of our members are part of this generous group of supporters:

Also on Thursday night, the Bronxville Public Library is getting into the Halloween spirit: at 7:00 p.m. in the Yeager Community Room, the voice actor Alan Sklar will read Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Pit and the Pendulum”. The event is free, and there will be a reception following the reading.

On Friday afternoon, the streets of Bronxville will be filled with ghosts and goblins, and perhaps a beautiful princess or two.

On Saturday afternoon, bring one or two small hand held items to Bronxville’s version of The Antiques Road Show and get a free verbal appraisal from dealer Patricia Funt Oxman, a professional dealer who has over twenty-five years of experience.

Around the corner at Citrine, owner Sarah Reynolds is also hosting a trunk show on November 4th and 5th. You can choose the perfect jewelry from designer Suzy Landa , whose specialty is hip and modern 18 kt gold and diamond jewelry. As Sarah says, “We love having trunk shows because it is a “win/win” situation for everyone! First and foremost, it’s a great way for our customers to meet our fabulous designers, see their entire line, and possibly have something specially created “just for them.” Our designers appreciate the chance to meet their customers (in person), see which pieces are well liked, and get out from behind their bench. We simply love the traffic and in-store activity, and the chance to spend two days with each one – getting to know him/her and gaining an in-depth knowledge of their entire line.”
Citrine is located at 22 Park Place.

Thanks for reading!
See you in our Village!
