Participants Named in the Bronxville Christmas Eve Pageant PDF Print Email

alt

By Charlotte Haims, Member, The Reformed Church of Bronxville


Dec. 12, 2018:  The 104th annual Bronxville Christmas Pageant takes place at 5:30 pm on Christmas Eve. As always, the pageant will feature a reenactment of the nativity scene with participants from the community and live animals.

There will be readings by the Bronxville clergy from seven local churches. Carols will be led by Dale Walker, accompanied by the brass players of the Bronxville Pops Concert Band. This is Dale Walker’s silver anniversary leading the village in singing carols.  

In addition, there will be the ringing of the tower bells and singing by an “Invisible Choir.” Anyone can participate in the Invisible Choir; just arrive 15 minutes early at 5:15 pm for a brief practice. 

The pageant is dependent entirely on donations from the community.

Below is the full cast for the 2018 pageant

Harvest Moon Festival Has Strong Turnout PDF Print Email

alt

By Eleyna Whittingham


Nov. 28, 2018:  The Reformed Church Nursery School’s Annual Harvest Moon Festival was held on Saturday, October 27, and was an incredible success. With a strong turnout, families from both RCNS and the Bronxville community came together for a fun-filled day to celebrate the fall season.

alt

Because of the weather, all activities were moved indoors and included raffles, games, crafts, food, a silent auction, and a petting zoo. The amazing efforts and talents of the RCNS parents made the Harvest Moon Festival possible, and all of the funds raised support the activities of the nursery school.

alt

The Harvest Moon Festival was also a success in large part because of our community sponsors: Augustyn Renovations, Houlihan Lawrence, Main Street Pediatric Dentistry, Nature’s Cradle, NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital, Pete’s Park Place Tavern, Park Place Bagels, and Value Drugs Eastchester.
