We did it; we made it through the first week of the new year. If you're already feeling ready for a break, you're in luck. It may be winter but there is still plenty do in in North Salem and northern Westchester. 

The Lewisboro Land Trust is back with their monthly preschool hikes. North Salem High School's varsity winter sports teams are back in action, with home games for both the girls basketball and ice hockey teams. And, as we are fortunate to have around here, there are several opportunities to engage with the arts, with events happening at both the Aldrich Museum and Katonah Museum of Arts. Read on for our full list of local events.
