Tonight: Learn About Clean Energy Options

This evening at 7:00pm, New Rochelle will launch a campaign to encourage clean energy solutions for heating and cooling.  Supported by the Urban League of Westchester, Comrie Enterprises, and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), this campaign will provide practical information about the benefits of clean heating and cooling technologies, connect contractors to customers, and help residents make the switch to electrification.  You can view the virtual launch by registering at www.adoptcleanenergy.earth.  More in this press release.

Family Fair at New Rochelle Public Library

The New Rochelle Public Library is holding a Family Fair this Sunday, October 3 from 1:00pm to 5:00pm.  This free event – with the theme “Recharge Your Super Powers at the Library” – will feature children’s book authors, entertainment, crafts, and lots of other fun activities. Kids (and I suppose adults, too) can come in their favorite super hero costume to meet Iron Man, dance to music from DJ Smithy Boy, and learn how to create their own comics.  More in this flyer.

New Ro Fireworks Tonight

The City remains primarily focused on storm recovery today, but we still want to remind residents that our annual fireworks display, postponed from July 4th, will take place tonight at the waterfront.  Fireworks by Grucci begin at 9:30pm, with good viewing from Hudson and Five Islands Parks. Just before and after the fireworks, nearby streets will be closed to cars so that pedestrians can walk safely, and parking in the immediate area will be limited, so plan ahead.

Volunteer Service Opportunities for 9-11

New Rochelle will be a major hub for volunteer projects on Sunday, September 12 — part of Volunteer New York’s Serve & Remember event, observing the 20th anniversary of 9-11.  Online registration is now open for individuals, groups, and families at volunteernewyork.org/newrochelle.  There’s more in this press release.

Volunteers make invaluable contributions to the life and vitality of New Rochelle, while exemplifying the engaged and generous spirit of our community, so we are proud to strengthen our ongoing partnership with Volunteer New York on this important occasion.
