Spring is in the air and festive times are coming! Eastchester at 350 banners, incorporating burgundy silkscreen fabric with rich cream lettering, are being installed in the business districts of Eastchester, Tuckahoe and Bronxville. These double-sided fabric signs proudly announce the town’s 350th birthday year to all and demonstrate the community’s unity.
“This was a totally cooperative effort to support the anniversary celebration,” said Town Supervisor Anthony Colavita. “Although the town has provided the approximate 100 banners, they were designed, ordered and installed in consultation with the Eastchester Beautification Foundation, the Town Highway Department, the Department of Public Works in Tuckahoe and the Bronxville Chamber of Commerce.”
Supervisor Colavita noted the importance of 2014 to all town residents and expressed his appreciation to the Eastchester Beautification Foundation, especially Judy Blau and Maura McMahon, for coordinating this project. He encouraged all residents to take pride in Eastchester’s rich history and to participate in the upcoming programs planned for the anniversary year by consulting the official website found at www.eastchester 350.org.
