Saturday, November 10, 2018 - Mayor Richard Thomas cordially invites you to #CoffeeWithTheMayor - 10 am at the Doles Center - 250 S. Sixth Avenue - Mount Vernon, NY - TOPICS: YOUTH SPORTS & MEMORIAL FIELD
Looks like @kellyvphoto snuck in a good one of me and Evan at his big football game under the lights of Memorial Field. Chalk this up as one of my favorite photos of all time. #FlagFootball#MemorialField#SCLions
Mount Vernon's c. 1931 Memorial Field grandstand was demolished in May 2018 as plans for the field's "rebirth" appear to be underway, again. Demolition began at Memorial Field in late 2011 but work was halted shortly thereafter and it seemed that the grandstand would be restored rather than demolished following a change in political administrations. Debate and controversy continues to surround Memorial Field, as current Mayor Richard Thomas's administration declared an "emergency situation" and ordered the demolition of the brick and limestone grandstand without approval from the City Council and without putting the project out for public bidding. City workers also unexpectedly removed the adjacent tennis bubble, to the ire of city residents. Further information can be found in several @lohud Journal News articles published in May and June.

Krystal and Hannah ventured to the Kinnikinnick Arboretum earlier this week for La Chic Boutique. The arboretum houses seven different native plant habitats and is filled with old growth Cedar, Ponderosa Pine, and Douglas Fir to name a few. As you wander through the arboretum, there are little benches to sit on and archways to admire, we encourage you to take some time out of your day to spend some time in this special place!🌲🌳
