EASTCHESTER, N.Y. -- The Steering Committee of Eastchester is inviting residents of Eastchester, Tuckahoe and Bronxville to join in the town's 350th anniversary celebration.
The committee recently mailed more than 13,000 colorful brochures describing the yearlong 2014 celebration of the town's founding and the public programs designed to commemorate it.
The professional marketing team of Don Blauweiss and Diane Dudzinski, who volunteered their services for this effort, designed the fliers featuring the Royal Patent of 1666 on its cover and details the community programs inside.
"As owners of the historical Coutant House and supporters of the Eastchester Historical Society, we wanted to share our enthusiasm for our rich local history and give back to our town," said Blauweiss, principal of Don Blauweiss Advertising & Design.
Steering committee co-chair Bob Riggs said the committee wanted to reach everyone in town, not just those with access to digital media, although that base is covered as well.
"We have launched our website at eastchester350.org , issued a number of press releases, and now we are reaching out even further to the entire population," said Riggs.
The Steering Committee welcomes volunteer participants in all of its programming and encourages those interested to contact the group at Eastchester350@eastchester.org.
