OSSINING, N.Y. - Here are a few of the top stories from this week in Ossining:
- The Sandy Help Center in Ossining opened this week to help local homeowners and businesses apply for federal aid following Superstorm Sandy. Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-Westchester/Rockland) announced the opening Wednesday at the Sandy Help Center at Ossining’s Town Hall at 16 Croton Ave.
- White Plains Hospital honored the more than 500 people who volunteered 66,000 hours of service in 2012 at its annual volunteer luncheon. Among the hundreds of volunteers was Judith Mohl, of Ossining, who volunteered 5,000 hours of service and received a plaque during the ceremony.
- Hundreds of residents learned to avoid coyote incidents from New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) biologist Kevin Clarke and Frank Vicente of “Save Wild Dogs.” The two addressed the apparent increase of coyotes in Westchester County Wednesday night in a jam-packed New Castle Community Center, giving two different perspectives on how local residents can best protect their own pets, children and themselves from the wild canine.
