HARRISON, N.Y. -- I hope that the harsh weather is finally behind us. It’s been a challenging winter but I expect spring clean up to proceed on schedule. Be sure to mark your calendars for Westchester County’s mobile shredder.
This year, the shredder will be in Harrison on Saturday, April 25, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the MTA lot at the corner of Harrison Avenue and Halstead Avenue. Harrison residents may bring up to four file-size (10-inch-by-12-inch-by-15-inch) boxes of confidential personal papers for shredding. Please remove all binder clips and covers. Papers from businesses, institutions or commercial enterprises are not acceptable and will be rejected, as will any junk mail, magazines and newspapers.
Congratulations to former resident Kathleen Bonistall, founder and vice chair of PEACE OUTside Campus, and resident Karen Magee, president of N.Y. State United Teachers. Both women were recently recognized as 2015 Women’s History honorees by the Greater New York Chamber of Commerce. Bonistall was honored for her work in educating high school and college students on matters of safety and social responsibility. Magee was honored for her representation of over 600,000 public school education professionals.
