‘Greenburgh is a big, sprawling, diverse town with six Villages and a large unincorporated area. But in reality it is just  “ONE TOWN” with residents, no matter where they live, caring for and supporting one another. On Wednesday evening the Greenville school in Edgemont will dedicate its new library in memory of Marla Payson Weizner ( details from the announcemnt below) which is the culmination of efforts from people from  all over Greenburgh.  The reception takes place Wednesday at the Greenville School, 100 Glendale Road, Scarsdsle tomorrow from 7 PM to 8:30 PM. Here is how it came about:


Marla Payson was raised in Edgemont (Greenburgh) and attended the Greenville Elementary School, its Middle School and High School. After college she returned to live in Edgemont and then married and moved to Irvington (Greenburgh) and taught First Grade for 20 years at her alma mater, the Greenville Elementary School until she passed away from cancer in 2015.


Her older sister Jackie Jaeger also attended the Edgemont schools and when she married moved to the Village of Hastings (Greenburgh). Jackie was instrumental in setting up The Marla Fund, through the Edgemont School Foundation, to benefit the Edgemont Schools and  support and enhance their early childhood literacy programs. To date The Marla Fund has generated over $100k in contributions from residents throughout Greenburgh and all across the country.


This year, Marla’s 13 year old  nephew, Brian Jaeger, created his own charity named “Stick Up To Cancer” in memory of his ‘Auntie” Marla.  Brian collected used hockey sticks from throughout the Town of Greenburgh and beyond. His sponsors gave him $!0 for each stick he collected and he also received cash ‘stick sponsorship ‘ donations.. Brian collected 793 sticks which, along with the cash donations, equaled over $11,000. Brian's efforts were featured in news stories around the metropolitan area.


This Spring the Foundation agreed to renovate the libraries at the Edgemont elementary schools and Jackie agreed to make a grant which, along with Brian’s contribution, covered the cost of the Greenville School  library project. This new library will be dedicated this Wednesday evening in honor of Marla and the contribution she made to the Edgemont community.


The hockey sticks Brian collected were offered to The Childrens Village in Dobbs Ferry (Greenburgh) as well as the Hockey In Harlem youth hockey league and the Hockey in Newark (NJ) youth league.  Brian’s grandparents, who were supportive of all these efforts, live in Dobbs Ferry and Irvington (Greenburgh).


So as you see no matter where you live in Greenburgh we really are all just ONE VILLAGE working together for the  good of all. The library dedication event is open to all ’

Wednesday November 6th

The Greenville School
100 Glendale Road
Scarsdale NY 10583 

to dedicate the Marla Payson Story Steps, in the Greenville School Library, in memory of Marla Payson Weizner '88, a devoted educator of elementary students. In the spring 2019, ESF and Marla’s Fund committed a grant to renovate and modernize one of the core pillars of a great education and what should be the center for student learning — the Library.

The Payson Family established Marla’s Fund in 2015 in collaboration with The Edgemont School Foundation to support literacy programs and development at the two elementary schools in the Edgemont School District.

ESF was established in 1993. Our mission is to enhance the educational experience in Edgemont.

We hope you will join us to see the wonderful new library and learning space created for the children of Edgemont in Marla’s Memory.
