Gramatan Village May Magic Benefit an Outstanding Success

alt

By Julie Dalton, Executive Director, Gramatan Village


May 23, 2018:  On the evening of May 10, over 250 members of the community attended May Magic at Siwanoy Country Club to show their support for Gramatan Village and to join in the celebration honoring Steven Palm, owner of the restaurant Underhills Crossing. 

Gramatan Village honored Steven for his generosity and willingness to dedicate his valuable time, expertise, and resources to so many, providing extraordinary service to our community. Those in attendance were dazzled by mentalist Ken Salaz and his sleight-of-hand and enjoyed the delightful ambiance thanks to the Siwanoy staff.

Gramatan Village president Kerry Walsh looked out at the record crowd saying that it was no surprise, since Steven is a very special member of the community. “When Steven opened Underhills Crossing 24 years ago, Bronxville residents were given a gift. Steven is the gift that keeps on giving.

Our two co-chairs, Helen Gerken and Janet Matthews, did a terrific job to make tonight a home run. Helen and Janet brought together a star-studded committee, Michael Cappelli, Nanci Farruggio, Jennifer Matthews Frost, Lisa Hery, Robert Kasara, and Jim Kenney,” said Kerry.   

Executive Director Julie Dalton reminded those in attendance that Gramatan Village is celebrating its tenth anniversary this month. “When we started Gramatan Village, we didn't quite know what to expect, but we were confident that this community would welcome us. Our founders wanted to make sure their neighbors could stay here as they grew older and I am proud to say that Gramatan Village is now an integral part of this community, making life easier and more meaningful for our members.” Julie acknowledged that Kathryn Urbina, director of member services and programs, is the “heart and soul” of Gramatan Village.

The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the J. Rockhill Gray Award for community service. As Steven has often said, “Today, I am living a dream that I have had since I was a young boy and I never, ever expected I would get to live it. If I am able to help someone who is not as lucky as I am, then it is my pleasure to do whatever I can. I am humbled to accept this honor from Gramatan Village.”

Gramatan Village engages community residents who want to remain in the home and neighborhood they love. The organization supports aging-in-community with a network of volunteers, community partnerships, and peer connections that help members to stay independent and fully engaged in the community. Gramatan Village is recognized as a leader in the National Village Movement.

Bronxville Beautification Council

Organized in 1982 and incorporated in 1993, the Bronxville Beautification Council (BBC) is a not for profit organization administered by a Board of Directors. Its mission is to enhance and maintain the natural and man-made beauty of Bronxville Village, with emphasis on the downtown business district of Bronxville. The BBC uses the dollars raised in its annual spring solicitation letter to residents to fund the mum, tulip and summer flower plantings downtown and at traffic intersections, as well as the summer hanging baskets. Every few years the group spearheads such major endeavors as the renovation of Leonard Morange Square on the west side of the railroad tracks and the beautification of the Lawrence Hospital traffic circle, which included the addition of plants and the building of the fountain that now makes a gracious western portal to our town. The BBC also works with other civic groups to monitor the aesthetics of retail signage, the consistency of sidewalk materials, and litter and graffiti. During Beautify Bronxville Week, the BBC sponsors a poetry reading and works with Scout groups on the annual village clean-up.
