WEST CHESTER COUNTY, NY – April 5, 2021 – April is a big birthday month for the Jeffers family, my wife, daughter, sister and many dear friends "Birthday Bash" edition of "News & Notes".
If you've ever seen me play golf, you know that trees and water often attract my strokes. I really wish I could have grown up this place. Skyhawk Sports Academy is hosting the Beginning Golf at Katonah Memorial Park on April 20-27. Participants will learn the basics of swinging, putting, body positioning, etiquette, and scoring. The program was specially developed for beginners and simplifies lessons so that young players can easily and effectively switch to the golf course.
Did you know that April 3rd was our children's national love day? I am very happy to have three wonderful daughters and look forward to celebrating this day and every day with them.
My wife has often told me that I have two left feet when I dance, so I'm happy to be promoting the Pre-School Dance and Movement Program with teacher Lauren Muccino. Classes start with warm up exercises and then you will play to the beat of the music. Clothing is comfortable clothing that can stretch (not jeans) and sneakers. The program is for children aged 3 to 5 on April 12, 19 and 26 from 3:00 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. at Bedford Hills Memorial Park or at Bedford Hills Railway Station in bad weather.
That conversation sounded interesting on Saturday April 3rd
