AND, SOMETHING TO SMILE ABOUT- A FREE FUN EVENT SATURDAY CELEBRATING LUNAR NEW YEAR
FRIENDLY REMINDER-2ND HALF OF YOUR SCHOOL TAXES ARE DUE JANUARY 31
Just a friendly reminder—the 2nd half of your school taxes are due by January 31st. Town Hall will be open till 7 pm on Friday, January 31st for your convenience. You can stop by and pay your school tax bills at Town Hall (177 Hillside Ave, White Plains) anytime between now and the 31st. You can also pay on line. There is a fee if you pay by credit card. The link is below. The town collects the school taxes for the school district but the school districts are totally independent of the town government – with their elected School Board members. An interesting bit of info: the town has to send each school district 100% of your tax bill whether you pay the bill or not- we advance the money.
Voters have the ability to vote for or against school budgets each year. NYS law does not provide voters with the chance to vote on town, county, state, fire district taxes—only school taxes. We don’t send out 2nd half bills so please don’t forget to pay your tax bill. If you pay late (even the next day) there are penalties and interest so don’t forget to pay.
SOME HAPPY NEWS –ARDSLEY IS SPONSORING A FREE LUNAR NEW YEAR CELEBRATION THIS SATURDAY FROM 2-4 ---IT IS A FANTASTIC FAMILY FUN EVENT
One of the most impressive committees around is the Ardsley Multicultural Diversity and Inclusion Committee. The committee, made up of residents of Ardsley, tries to highlight, celebrate and respect the cultures and the people who live in Ardsley.

Lunar New Year starts with a new moon and the first new moon of 2020 will begin January 24th. Mei Xia, owner of Mei’s dance studio in Ardsley will perform some of the traditional Chinese folk dances blended with modern dance. During the dragon dance 10 people will animate the 12 foot long red and yellow fabric creature, standing underneath with the hand held sticks that support it, according to last week’s issue of the Rivertowns Enterprise.
