Saturno led a workshop titled Building Vibrant Communities by Investing in Social Infrastructure, which was about how a strong social infrastructure leads to healthier individuals and flourishing communities.

Saturno was joined by Purchase College professor emerita Thomasenia Myers, and over 600 people attended the event. Saturno, a diplomate in clinical social work, was recently appointed a lecturer at Columbia University School of Social Work.

By Staff

May 8, 2019:  A few raindrops on Friday did not dampen the mood of Senior Citizens Council members who were selling raffle tickets for the 2019 parking raffle. The council holds the raffle every year. The winner, who is picked on Memorial Day weekend, will have free parking at any meter in Bronxville for a year. The Village of Bronxville generously donates the prize. 

Raffle tickets will continue to be sold by volunteers from the Bronxville Senior Center and members of the Senior Citizens Council through Memorial Day. Tables will be set up in front of Citibank and the OpaOpa Fresh Greek Restaurant, both on Pondfield Road, on Fridays and Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Tickets are $3.00 each, $5.00 for two, and $15.00 for a book of six. The winner does not have to be present at the time of the drawing to win.

Proceeds from the raffle will support the Senior Citizens Council, the parent organization that oversees the Bronxville and Tuckahoe Senior Centers. Their programs are offered to over 500 members and are designed to help maintain and enrich the members’ quality of life.

Paige Nagle to be Honored at Gramatan Village’s May Magic 2019 PDF Print Email

By Sherry Saturno, Executive Director, Gramatan Village


Apr. 17, 2019:  Paige Nagle, dedicated Bronxville community member, will be honored at Gramatan Village’s annual May Magic 2019 benefit on Wednesday, May 15, at the Bronxville Field Club from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

Paige was raised in southern New Jersey and after high school enrolled at Northwestern University. After graduating in 1966, she moved to New York City and accepted a position at CBS Broadcasting in its Columbia Records division working with musical talents who recorded on its labels. In this role, she had the opportunity to meet many interesting people and truly loved every minute of it.

While at CBS, Paige met Art Nagle, who was in graduate school, and they were married in 1970. She then left CBS and was hired by the American Museum of Contemporary Crafts (now the Museum of Arts and Design), where she worked with its founder, the philanthropist Aileen Osbourne Webb, whom she adored. After their two children, Katie and Chris, were born, they moved to Bronxville in 1978. Drawn by the attractive commute and excellent school system, they have happily lived in the village ever since.

In addition to being a mother and a homemaker, Paige also studied at the New York School of Interior Design in Manhattan and started her own residential interior design firm with clients in Westchester and Fairfield counties. As an avid volunteer and active member of the community, she has served with many local charities and civic organizations and is an especially active parishioner of Christ Church Bronxville.

Paige has also been an enthusiastic member of the music therapy ensemble The Song Pipers since shortly after settling here and has served several terms as its president. Established in Bronxville in 1949, The Song Pipers reaches out to people in nursing homes, hospitals, senior citizen centers, and rehabilitation facilities in lower Westchester, bringing live music to the elderly and infirm in an effort to make their days brighter and more fulfilling. Paige’s passion for singing and her love of her community has been an important part of living in Bronxville. She donates her time, talent, and treasures where she thinks they might help others and has been rewarded time and time again by how happy it makes her.  

The Nagles' daughter lives in Manhattan and their son lives in Florida with his wife, Candace, and two granddaughters, Avery and Amelia.

Admission to the May Magic Benefit is $100 per person, of which $75 is tax deductible. To make a reservation or learn more about the event, please contact Gramatan Village at 914-337-1338 or email  CLOAKING .
