October Arrives In The 88th Assembly District So Enjoy The Weekend

Dear friends and neighbors,

Where did September go? It seems like we were just celebrating Labor Day yet October arrives this weekend. That means a great deal of fun fall activities in the cities, towns and villages of the 88th Assembly District.

Yom Kippur is also this weekend. Yom Kippur – the Day of Atonement – marks the culmination of the 10 Days of Awe, a period of introspection and repentance. I hope that everyone who is observing has an easy fast.
