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.

The Concert Across America To End Gun Violence Highlights A Big Musical Weekend In The 88th Assembly District

Dear friends and neighbors,

Fall officially arrived this week and what better way to celebrate the changing of the seasons than with music. There are so many concerts this week in the 88th Assembly District, from the White Plains Jazz Festival to the Pio Feast and Music Festival in Tuckahoe, that it will be difficult to choose just one.

The biggest musical event, however, will occur in New Rochelle on Sunday when The Concert Across America to End Gun Violence will take place at the Bandshell in Hudson Park at noon. I am sponsoring the concert, along with the City of New Rochelle, as part of a nationwide series of concerts aimed at bringing attention to the unprecedented level of gun violence in this country. Please join us in New Rochelle Sunday afternoon and then head over to Scarsdale, where the music will continue at The Scarsdale Congregational Church.

Join me and take a stand against gun violence. I hope to see you in New Rochelle, Scarsdale and at some of the other concerts this weekend.

Here’s a closer look at some of the events that are taking place in the 88th. Have a good weekend and remember that if you have an event you’d like me to include in the coming weeks, send the information to Paulina@Assembly.State.NY.US.
