Public Service a Happy Duty for Mayor Mary Marvin PDF Print Email

alt

By Carol P. Bartold, Senior Reporter     


Nov. 7, 2018: If thirteen years as Bronxville’s mayor has done anything for Mary Marvin, it has increased her enthusiasm for the village and her affection for its residents exponentially. First elected mayor in 2005, Marvin has helped guide the village through significant changes as well as tangible and intangible improvements.

“I am so grateful for the job,” Marvin said. “I’ve gotten back ten times what I’ve given, and I have learned so much from residents.” She, like rest of the village trustees, does not receive any salary for her work in village government.

Marvin learned about public service early in life. “I grew up in a house where you had to give back in some way.” Her father was a doctor who volunteered to treat inmates in a prison near her hometown. “It wasn’t a choice; it was a happy duty,” she said. She added that in watching her father, she was able to see nobility in public service.

It was while working for Nelson Rockefeller, Marvin noted, that she caught the spirit of love with which he interacted with people. He simply loved people, she said. Following Rockefeller’s lead, Marvin credits her interactions with village residents as contributing the most to her education and growth as a public official. “I have gotten to know a real cross-section of people,” she said. “It’s a privilege to learn what people think.” She feels that listening has helped her and the trustees establish an approachable local government that encourages connection with village residents.

“When you listen to people, you can make a difference. Even a small difference can be important,” Marvin noted. “I get a great sense of joy at the end of the day when I know I’ve been able to help someone, even if I can do a small thing for them.” She went on to say that people are easy to help because, for the most part, they are kind, civil, and understanding. Marvin described village government as a resource broker for residents that can provide a wide range of assistance and information.

In addition to holding elected office in Bronxville, Marvin has also served a one-year term as president of the Westchester Municipal Officers Association, a group made up of officials from Westchester County towns and villages. The group convenes to study issues that are of concern to the municipalities and takes action on them for the benefit of public safety, health, and welfare of citizens.

Since Mary Marvin was first elected as mayor, the village has seen completion of Villa BXV on Kensington Road, which not only added 54 residential units to the tax rolls, and almost 200 public parking spaces to the village inventory, but also cleaned up a toxic site that had lain contaminated for many years. The village and its school district applied for, and received, significant funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to install the flood mitigation system on the school campus to prevent damaging flooding from severe storms. The village has gone online with the Pango pay-by-phone system, which allows drivers to make cashless payments and pay for parking from remote locations. The village has undertaken an improved outdoor lighting design and updated 100-year-old sewer pipes throughout the community. A reconstructed Garden Avenue parking lot has improved traffic flow and drainage with the addition of permeable surfaces and an updated drainage system. The village worked with the Town of Eastchester and the City of Yonkers to repair the Parkway Road Bridge after the New York State Department of Transportation closed it for structural deterioration.

A comprehensive property assessment facilitated a rolling assessment system that has established a three-year cycle of reassessing every property in the village. As a result, the village has seen a marked decrease in the number of grievances filed and the amount of money paid out to satisfy tax certioraris. The village code has also seen several portions streamlined to reduce the burdens of the permitting process. The goal is to promote a vibrant business district that appeals to businesses wanting to open in Bronxville.

Projects in process and commenced under Marvin’s leadership include an update of the village comprehensive plan, last modified in 2009, and the purchase and reconstruction of the Avalon parking lot on Parkway Road.

“I love coming to village hall,” Mary Marvin declared. “The staff is so capable, positive, and helpful. That level of support allows us to do the things that will really help our residents.”

The Counseling Center to Honor Rosanne Welshimer at Annual Benefit PDF Print Email

alt

By Ellen Edwards, Member, Board of Directors, The Counseling Center


Nov. 7, 2018:  The Counseling Center will host its 48th annual benefit on Friday, May 3, 2019, at the Bronxville Field Club. This year’s event honors Rosanne Welshimer, whose commitment to community service, lived out with energy and good cheer, has enriched so many people in Bronxville and beyond.

Rosanne’s volunteer work began as a tutor while attending Mount Holyoke College and continued during her long, stellar career at The Bank of New York, where many of her 38 years there were spent as senior vice president and division head for the bank’s securities industry banking division.

Early on, she taught church school and baked for the soup kitchen at The Reformed Church of Bronxville; remarkably, she continued as a monthly cookie baker for the soup kitchen for 26 years, and after 34 years, she still teaches fourth-grade church school. 

Soon after leaving banking, through Neighborhood Coalition for Shelter, she became a mentor and scholarship supporter of several youths as they aged out of the foster care system. Further, she has held many lay leadership positions at The Reformed Church of Bronxville: as chair of several councils, deacon, elder, and vice president and acting president of consistory. In addition, Rosanne served as president of the board of the Bronxville Public Library and as chair of the board of The Counseling Center, where she was on the board from 2011 to 2018.

In all of these roles, Rosanne brought compassion and focus, an eye for detail, and an enduring warmth. Over the years, she and her husband, Mark, have supported many local organizations with a focus on wellness, education, and faith. The mother of four children and grandmother of six, Rosanne delights in spending time with her family. She also enjoys gardening and cooking and is famous for her scrumptious chocolate chip cookies.

Thanks to the generosity of four families who are sponsoring this year’s benefit, all of the proceeds from this event will go to support the important work of The Counseling Center, especially its fee subsidy program, which allows the center’s professional staff to offer critical services, including psychotherapy, marriage counseling, family and child therapy, and pastoral counseling, to those who are unable to afford full-fee treatment.

“We want to help all those in need,” said Carol Godfrey, chair of the board. “For anyone facing a difficult moment in life, no matter what their age or the kind of challenge they face, The Counseling Center can be a vital resource. The exceptional psychotherapists on our staff stand out for their many years of experience. And through a well-funded fee subsidy program, we can offer our expertise to more people, making a positive difference in their lives and in those whose lives they touch.”

Virgil Roberson, LP, MDiv, NCPsyA, executive director of The Counseling Center, said: “Some come to the center with serious mental health challenges, including major depression, anxiety/panic disorder, eating disorders, bipolar illness, self-injury, or addiction. We specialize in treating those serious difficulties and many others—sometimes in short-term-focused psychotherapy and, when appropriate, in longer-term, more intensive therapy. But many clients seek help with the normal rough spots of life. All of us face difficult situations, and often it helps to speak to an objective, impartial person who is not a friend or family member. The Counseling Center provides expert assistance in those situations, too. Sometimes in just a few sessions, clients find the clarity and reassurance they are seeking.”

Godfrey, added, “The upcoming benefit offers an opportunity for people to reacquaint themselves with the terrific contribution The Counseling Center makes to the community. I’m excited by this chance to continue our outreach and expand our fee-subsidy program. And I’m especially excited to honor Rosanne Welshimer, whose leadership, dedication, and warm friendship over the years have helped ensure that The Counseling Center remains a welcome resource.”

The Counseling Center offers a warm, safe, and confidential place to get help. It has offices in The Reformed Church of Bronxville, as well as in Scarsdale, Riverdale, and New York City. For more information, visit www.counselingcenter.org or call its clinical director, Dr. Jane Benjamin, at 914-793-3388.

Bronxville Bronco 5/6 Football Team Wins Westchester Football Championship PDF Print Email

alt

By Robert Freeman, Bronxville Parent


Nov. 7, 2018:  This past Sunday, in the last official game played on the old turf at Chambers Field, the Bronxville Broncos Youth Football team completed an undefeated season, beating Pleasantville 32-8 to claim the Westchester Youth Football championship for the third time in four years. This year’s title was particularly special and marked the first time in program history that our young Broncos finished undefeated.

Evoking memories of the great NY Giants' defensive units of the 1980s, on October 21, our youth Broncos completed the regular season without giving up a touchdown, defeating the Valhalla Vikings 24-0. The Broncos finished the regular season 6-0 and entered the playoffs as the number-one seed in the WYFL.

On October 28, in the first round of those playoffs, the Broncos took on a very tough youth football team from White Plains and finally surrendered their first touchdown of the season. The Broncos scored three touchdowns of their own and prevailed 24-8 (at this age, extra-point kicks are worth two points and the Broncos have the best kicker in the league in Jarvis Chow, who was a perfect 3 for 3).

On a picture-perfect fall day, with the trees surrounding Chambers Field in full color, the Broncos took on an undefeated 7-0 team from Pleasantville. In an intense and hard-hitting first half, the Broncos finally broke through with less than one minute left in the half when Davis Patterson (6th grade) took it around left end for a touchdown, aided by some stellar blocking by fifth-graders Brian Formato and Thomas Freeman.

The Broncos started with the ball to begin the second half and, after what the team calls the Coach K Special, gained big yardage on the first play, and Sam Becker (6th grade) took a counter play to the house untouched for a 48-yard touchdown, making it 16-0 Broncos. The rout was on! Late in the third quarter, Patterson again took it around the left side for a 46-yard touchdown and a 24-0 lead. After Pleasantville finally reached the end zone early in the fourth quarter, the Broncos got the ball back, and Patterson once again scooted down the sideline for a 24-yard touchdown to end the scoring: Broncos 32, Pleasantville 8.

alt

This year’s Broncos included sixth-graders Henry Frigon, Jack Kennedy, Will Mattson, Michael Knox, Max Devaney, Davis Patterson, James Halley, Kieran Patterson, Matthew McSherry, Jack Gangemi, Jack Preusse, Alex Napolitano, Sam Becker, Henry Vail, and Jarvis Chow and fifth-graders Brian Formato, Thomas Freeman, Fletcher van Tienhoven, James O’Shaughnessy, John Shah, Nicholas Londal, and Nicholas Martinelli. The Coaches were Bill Knox, Rob Freeman, Dan Olimpio, Sam Patterson, Chris Becker, and Charles Preusse.

Go Broncos!

Bronxville 5th-Grader Wins Mountain Biking Championship PDF Print Email

alt

By Guest Contributor


Nov. 7, 2018:  Two weekends ago, at Mount Snow in Vermont, Bronxville Elementary School fifth-grader Logan Arthurs became the overall champion in the Under 12 Class of the Maxxis Eastern States Cup downhill mountain biking series.

Logan is a pint-sized powerhouse on two wheels. He loves mountain biking, rushing through the forest on narrow trails, and launching himself off rocky drops. Specifically, Logan enjoys downhill mountain biking, a discipline much like skiing, where a chairlift is taken to the top of the mountain and then descends to designated trails. At these bike parks, the trails are graded similarly to ski runs, with green, blue, and black diamond levels of difficulty. The trails weave in and about the trees, over rough rocks, and down chutes. Hand-built features are incorporated into the trail network and include sculpted jumps, berms, and bridges. Bike parks are relatively new to the sport of mountain biking but are now proliferating in the Northeast as resorts like Killington look to profit from the summer season. Logan’s home bike park is Mountain Creek in Vernon, New Jersey.

Logan has been riding a bike since he was three years old and has been downhill biking since he was seven. After winning the first race he ever entered, which was last year, a fire was lit. He made a conscious decision this spring to concentrate on racing and participate in the Maxxis Eastern States Cup Series. This year, the ESC introduced a new Under 12 Clif Kids Class to encourage young mountain bikers, or groms, as they are endearingly called, to the sport. The series started in May and finished in October and was to visit eight unique locations in the Northeast (because of lift maintenance at Killington, racers rode Thunder Mountain in Massachusetts twice this year).

alt

Each race weekend, Saturday is a practice day and Sunday is a race day. The groms race the same course as the pros, a double black diamond trail with each bike park offering up its own flavor. The race courses are extremely intense, with jagged rocks, drops, and slick roots.

In mountain bike racing, there is no such thing as a weather cancellation, so racers must deal with whatever Mother Nature throws at them. This past summer was very wet. Only two of the eight races had a dry course. The other six races had variations of wet. At Windham Mountain in August, torrential rains drained from the skies all practice day and throughout the night, turning the already treacherous former UCI World Cup race course into the steepest, nastiest mudslide imaginable. At Sugarbush in Vermont and Thunder Mountain, the inevitable weekend rains rendered the courses incredibly slippery. The roots that snaked across the trail were so slick, it was as if they were covered in Vaseline. Through all these obstacles, Logan persevered, standing on the podium for each and every one of the races, usually as the youngest rider.

While the weather this season may have been rough, everyone was in it together. The sense of community among this wild mountain biking tribe is strong. Every race weekend, Logan couldn’t wait to head out and join his friends on the mountain. This year, he forged lifelong friendships with kids from Maine to Maryland.

When he’s not racing, Logan can be found zipping around Bronxville working on new skills or riding the trails at Sprain Ridge and Graham Hills. During this time, he also enjoys making short video edits of his riding that he posts on his website and his YouTube channel.

Alessio Ian Manti Dies October 16, 2018; Memorial Service in Scarsdale November 10 PDF Print Email

alt

By the Family


Nov. 7, 2018:  Alessio Ian Manti died on October 16, 2018, in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Alessio and his mother, Janis Cohen, moved to Bronxville in June of 1996. Alessio was born in Rome and lived in Milan with his Italian father, Gaetano Manti, and his mother, Janis. Janis, Alessio, and Violetta (their white boxer, who never spoke English) moved to America when he was nearly six.

Everyone in Bronxville knew Alessio as Alex. He wanted to fit in--it wasn't until he went to Choate in 2006 that he went back to his birth name, Alessio. It was a new beginning and his hope for the start of a new life.

He was a most beautiful man, physically and mentally. He had the highest EQ ever. He was also Mensa, with a photographic memory. His heart was bigger than life--he felt passion and pain in ways that others could never understand. He left a legacy of love and life. He touched souls everywhere. I hope he touched yours.  

Following Alessio's graduation from Choate, he attended and graduated from Northwestern, then attended the Natural Gourmet Institute in NYC while working. He started graduate school in the Netherlands in 2018.  

He suffered from brilliance and mental health issues. He struggled for ten years. He lost his battle in October of 2018--he was returning home to Bronxville to try to find a new path moving ahead.   

Alessio's dream was to start a not-for-profit that he, his mother, and his friend and attorney began a business plan for in October of this year. It is now called Alessio's Glad House. Alessio's goal was to raise awareness of mental health, to destigmatize it, and to ensure that everyone has health care coverage and a voice, support, and care. Please join me in honoring my son Alessio and realizing his dream to help others find an outcome different than his. Please become a part of the solution; it is time to do so.    

A memorial service will be held at the Scarsdale Community Baptist Church at 2:00 pm on November 10, 51 Popham Road, Scarsdale, NY.

The night included a live Yacht Rock Band featuring music from the '70s and '80s, a taco bar, and tequila tastings.

The evening raised over $80,000 to benefit The Tree House program, which offers support for children ages 4 to 18 whose parent or sibling has died. The co-chairs for the event were MK O'Shaughnessy, Nancy McCreery, Janie Regan, Beth McErlean-Pierce, Chris Curtin, and board chair Ellen Bryceland.
