Mayor Otis Finger Paints for a Good Cause

Public officials are known to do a lot of things. But who else has a mayor that finger paints?

Twig_1_bobby_first_comm_europe_silkThe Twig of Westchester County hosted a “Hands of Appreciation Day” on May 31st at the Rye-Rye Brook-Port Chester EMS headquarters at 417 Ellendale in Port Chester. Children, adults and mayors were invited to place a painted hand print on the outside wall of the building in a show of community spirit and appreciation for all the EMS does for the community. Twenty-five families attended the event and 100 hand prints went up on the wall.
