2. Annual College Fair Tonight

The annual College Fair at Yorktown High School will be held today from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Close to 300 colleges are expected to attend. Parents and students are encouraged to carpool since parking on the high school campus will be limited. Attendees can also park in the commuter lot on Route 202 or at Mohansic Elementary School, where a shuttle bus will run throughout the evening.

3. Write a Holiday Card to the Armed Forces

The Somers Women's Club is asking community members to write cards to the 101 Expeditionary Signal Battalion in Afghanistan. One member of the Battalion graduated from Somers High School and still has family living here, according to a Facebook post by the group. Cards must be holiday cards, not for a specific holiday or religion. Sign only with your first name. You may write a short generic note, as both men and women are serving. No envelopes, inserts etc. Drop the cards in a box at Tazza Cafe in the Heritage Hills Shopping Center before Nov. 5. 

4. Yorktown Town Board Meeting

Yorktown town board members will meet tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Town Hall. Click here for the agenda.

5. Primrose PTA Book Fair

The Primrose Elementary School's Book Fair in Somers will be held tonight from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the school's library. For each order purchased, the children will be entered into a raffle drawing and the winners will be announced during school. The book fair takes place all week, but the family evening is on Tuesday.
