Upcoming Events for Women in Westchester

When Shawna and I redesigned our site late last year, we decided to narrow our topics into three main categories.  Our new site is keeping us more focused and we are happy to post within the following three topics– eat, shop and play.   Most things are just for women and sometimes our posts include the family/kids.

So what is is the PLAY category all about?  It’s basically “everything else” outside of eating/dining/cooking and shopping/products/sales.  “Play” covers everything from travel to entertainment/plays/concerts, from books to movies, including activities, recreation and more.

To share a few different play topics, I decided to post a listing of fun events that our readers might like to know about and participate in in the upcoming months.

Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health will be hosting a special screening of the documentary Life, Animated, an inspirational story about a young man with autism who was unable to speak as a child until he and his family discovered a unique way to communicate by immersing themselves in the world of classic Disney animated films. The story is truly one of a kind and has just been nominated for an Oscar in the “Best Documentary” category.

Special screenings of Manchester By The Sea, nominated for six 2017 Academy Awards. Manchester by the Sea is the story of a solitary Boston janitor who returns to his hometown to take care of his teenage nephew, and is forced to deal with a past that separated him from his wife and the community where he was born and raised. Deeply poignant, and unexpectedly funny, the film explores the power of familial love, community, sacrifice and hope.

I'm a fourth-generation native of Westchester County where I attended college locally, spent ten years as a teacher and is now a "stay-at-home" mom raising my daughter and son in the same town that I grew up in. I enjoy reading, shopping and being the "go-to-girl" for my family and friends.
