MyhometownBronxville: Who are we?
We are your neighbors, and there are enough of us for at least one of us to be the friend of at least one of you. Some of us grew up here, and most of us have had or still have children at the Bronxville School.
We, like so many of you, have volunteered our time in the community and care about it deeply. And, like you, we want to know as much as we can about what is happening in our village--at Village Hall, at the schools, the Planning and Zoning Boards, the library, at places of worship, in the business district and the real estate market and what is currently engaging the service, cultural and political organizations here.
MyhometownBronxville does this by providing the latest news, sports, events and information about Bronxville. We also have a Bulletin Board where people and organizations can post items for sale, events and services and a bi-weekly Local Life & Style email that keeps readers informed about all the great items and services of local businesses!
Our staff is headed by our president and publisher Sarah Thornton-Clifford, who grew up in Bronxville, is the mother of triplets and, after college at Princeton and earning a master’s degree at the Yale School of Management, spent 19 years at Time, Inc., rising to the position of New York advertising manager of Sports Illustrated.
Our vice-president and editor in chief is former Bronxville Mayor Marcia M. Lee, who holds a doctorate from Tufts University in political science, which she taught at the college level as an assistant professor, before working in county and state government and serving as associate dean of Westchester Community College and director of its Office of Institutional Research and Planning. She has held an array of volunteer positions and been widely honored for her service.
Our Assistant Editor is Karen Wolfgang Swanson who graduated magna cum laude from Yale and received a J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Our Senior Writer is Carol Bartold who graduated with honors in music from Mary Washington College and has a Masters in Fine Arts in Writing from Sarah Lawrence College. Jeannie Murrer and Susan Quinn DeJoy are our sports reporters. Neely Bower and Allaire Warner are our feature photographers.
But that's not all. A significant roster of local residents will be helping us keep you informed about the resources available in our village for students and seniors, parents and professional people, those in need of some kind of assistance and those who are looking for opportunities for providing it.
To achieve that, the following people have agreed to act as “program consultants” to help advise us:
||Mary Anne O'Callahan
|Mary Ellen Carpenter
|Susan Quinn DeJoy
||Callie St. Phillips
Our staff and other community members also provide a community wide calendar listing community activities open to the public, and keep you up to date on restaurants, food and parties; weddings and engagements; vacations, day trips and getaways; and even the Metro North train schedule.
So here we are. We welcome you all to our virtual pages!
