Competition Season Begins for Local Dancers


The members of the Dance Company Competition Teams at Gina Marie’z Academy of Performing Arts, LLC kicked off their competition season this past weekend at Dancers Inc, White Plains.

The dancers, instructors and families spent the weekend prepping, perfecting hair and makeup, and putting finishing touches on costumes before the dancers took the stage before a judging panel. The dancers left their hearts on the dance floor as they have been practicing their routines (solos, duets and group routines in all genres) since July!

They have two more competitions left this month, including a local one Poughkeepsie.

Free Trees for Streamside Landowners
A message from the Town of Lloyd Environmental Conservation Council: If your property sits along at least 50 feet of a stream or waterbody, you can obtain a free bag of bare-root (unpotted) trees and shrubs to enhance the streamside area on your property.

Vegetated stream sides (“buffers”) improve stream health and water quality by slowing runoff, filtering pollution, preventing soil erosion, and contributing essential resources for in-stream habitat. Buffers also absorb and slow flood waters, which protects property and human safety. To apply,you must provide photos and information indicating where the trees will be planted. There is a limited supply and recipients are selected first-come, first-served.

Application forms are available at the Library, Town Hall and at dec.ny.gov/animals/115903.html, and must be submitted by 3 p.m. on Wed., April 3.

For questions, contact the Trees for Tribs program by calling (518) 402-9405 or emailing treesfortribs@dec.ny.gov.
