The Friends recently received news of the award of a Recreational Trails grant to make the steep slope entry to the trail in Dobbs Ferry at Cedar and Main accessible to the elderly and handicapped, bikers and mothers with strollers. This grant was a very competitive one and The Friends were thrilled to receive it.

The President thanks Dobbs Ferry Mayor Scott Seskin, Trustee Paula Dambroff, and Jerry Mulligan of the Westchester County Planning Department for supporting this application.

There's good news on the restoration of the historic Keeper's House. This year the Friends undertook the work to restore the porch as a first step. Board member Carl Grimm was our lead architect and supervisor and now the porch has a beautiful roof, new gutters, columns that have been faithfully restored and a new porch floor.
