The long time residents who have been married for almost 40 years will be honored as "couple of the year" at a gala on Sept. 23 at the Bronxville Women's Club.


Each year, the Bronxville Women's Club distinguishes one husband and wife as couple of the year in the Village and this year, the honor belongs to Fritz and Sheila Stein from Bronxville. 

The big event gala will take place on Sunday, Sept. 23, from 5 p.m. to 7 pm. and tickets are $100 per person. 

Chairs for the event are Joyce Balint and Vicki Ford as well as honorary chairmen who have served Bronxville in many capacities over the years.

They include current Mayor Mary Marvin and former Mayors Nancy Hand, Marcia Lee, and William Murphy, all having had large roles in the village government.
