Village clerk weds
Sleepy Hollow Village Clerk Paula McCarthy and Earl Tompkins, a longtime volunteer firefighter in Pocantico Hills, married Nov. 11 in a ceremony at Union Church in Pocantico Hills.
Tompkins is from Mahopac where he graduated from Mahopac high school. He was a longtime employee of GreenRock Corp in Pocantico Hills. McCarthy graduated from Sleepy Hollow High School.
This is a second marriage for both, who now have five kids between them ranging in ages from 8 to 24.
Making their annual pilgrimage north, trustees will gather Dec. 4 at Kendal on Hudson to conduct their regularly scheduled work session. Public comments are welcome, Mayor Ken Wray made clear.
“We ordinarily do not have them at a work session,” he said, “but we invite them [at this meeting].” Located at 1010 Kendal Way, Kendal on Hudson is a not-for-profit assisted living facility on the Hudson River shoreline.
“Look forward to seeing you all there,” the mayor said. He'd made a point of the meeting’s 7:30 start time, a departure from both the usual 7 o’clock beginning as well as the time posted on the village website.
The board voted Tuesday to suspend metered parking in the village for two weeks, Dec. 17 to Jan. 2, when holiday bags will cover the devices.
