The Villages: Veterans Day 2018

This week in the villages: All village halls are closed Mon, Nov 12 in observance of Veterans Day. In Nyack, there will be no trash collection. The DPW will be picking up trash on Tue, Nov 13. All the trees that were planted as part of the Nyack Tree Project will be taken care of thanks to a grant from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation. There’s still time to sign up for the Nyack Kids Wrestling Club and to play pickleball outdoors in Memorial Park.

Nyack Receives Tree Grant

The Village of Nyack will receive a $50,000 grant from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) for an Urban and Community Forestry Project to provide professional services for tree pruning and stump removal throughout the village. The project also includes training sessions for DPW staff and community tree stewards in young tree training techniques, which will be important now that the Nyack Tree Project has planted nearly 100 young trees since April 2016.

Nyack Kids Wrestling Club

Registration is now open for the 10th annual Nyack Kids Wrestling Club for boys and girls in grades 2-6. The program runs November 26 through February 27 (except when school is closed) with practices held in the Wrestling Room of Nyack High School. Each participant receives a Nyack Kids Wrestling T-shirt and a USA Wrestling Membership Card (plus insurance and liability). The cost is $120 for Village of Nyack residents and $150 for non-residents. Please register before November 19. There is a mandatory parent and player orientation meeting on Mon, Nov 19 at 6p in the library at Nyack High School.
