YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- The Yorktown Chamber of Commerce is inviting residents for an evening of dance and celebration on Friday, May 30 at Trump National Golf Course in Briarcliff Manor.

Makes perfect sense. The Chamber wants to drive home the fact that they're not really that interested in Yorktown businesses. Many on the board don't even live in Yorktown. And there you have it, the "Yorktown" Chamber of Commerce awards dinner-dance in Briarcliff Manor. Maybe we can have the 2017 awards in Costco--on second thought maybe the Chamber should have advocated for a proposal that was in-line with the comprehensive plan's vision of Crompond. Seems like our town sorely lacks event space--just ask the Chamber. For shame.
