A Weekly Serenade

I dare you not to smile when you watch this story on NBC about Rosemarie Castellano, a talented young violinist, who brings joy to her neighbors in New Rochelle every Friday evening with a performance in honor of our first responders, health care providers, and essential workers.  Rosemarie is one of several wonderful people highlighted on our New Ro Cheers page.  You can show your own New Ro spirit by ordering a lawn sign — no musical ability required for that.

Order a Lawn Sign – Show Your New Ro Pride

To show New Rochelle’s strength and determination throughout this public health crisis, the City is offering New Ro Strong lawn signs that can be proudly displayed on any property. To request your own sign, please visit newrochelleny.com/lawnsignform, give us your address, and a volunteer will deliver a sign to your door.  It’s that simple. The signs are free, but you also have the option of making a voluntary contribution to the City’s NourishALL food security program.

We’re all in this together, so let’s each demonstrate New Rochelle’s united and resilient spirit!

P.S.  Remember to clap or make some noise tonight at 7:00pm in honor of essential workers, first responders, and health care providers.

For Some Inspiration . . .

The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the toughest challenges our community has ever faced, but it’s also brought out our best — generosity, compassion, determination, and resolve.  To shine a spotlight on some of the amazing work of local residents, businesses, and institutions, the City has created this new webpage, and will be adding to it in the days and weeks ahead.  If you need some inspiration, please take a look, and see why we are #NewRoStrong.
