When I was asked to write this column, it was touted as a place to highlight positive news for the neighborhood birth, wedding, anniversary announcements. I was not sure how it would go but each week I have found something to write about over and above the announcements.
This week though, I have the pleasure of announcing that Christine and Mark Lampersberger are expecting Baby # 6 ! This news makes me think of the following quote, A new baby is like the beginning of all things-wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities." As Christine told me, We have faith that this will all work out. All the Lampersbergers and their family and friends are thrilled. And, you can be sure that Colin is smiling down from heaven as their guardian angel. Caileigh, their only daughter so far, is naturally hoping for a girl because she can't imagine saying..."I have 5 brothers..." Her brothers, Kyle, Connor and Kieran , are stacking the odds against her. Either way the new Lampersberger baby will be a welcome addition to the Yorktown community. Next week I will tell you about Christines SUNY Albany friends who are her neighbors and supporters in this Yorktown community.
Looking for a meal sprinkled with smiles and wit and topped with great food? Go see the dynamic duo Gretchen Anderson and Kathleen Regan , Yorktown neighbors, moms and excellent waitresses at the Yorktown Diner. They would love to serve you.
Speaking of service, a year or so ago a bunch of neighbors got together and formed a Community Neighborhood Network via The Junior League of Northern Westchester , an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. Tammy Marchini, Kathy Rubin , Maureen Hynes, Jennifer Vespucci, Sasa Lin, Christine Fillipone and Michelle Mitchell meet quarterly to plan events like movie nights, picnics for the neighborhood behind BJs. A newsletter and an email list helps get the word out on pertinent information for their neighborhood.
On Oct. 2, Maureen Hynes, Kathy Rubin, Amy Smith & Family, Andrea Servedio & family and Tammy Marchini represented their community network in the Support Connections Breast Cancer Walk at FDR park.
