Community Update: Happy Hanukkah & Upcoming Events

December 04, 2021

Dear Friends,

Happy Hanukkah! To all who join me in celebrating, may we continue to find light and appreciate the miracles around us. 

With confirmed cases of the omicron variant in New York, we must remain vigilant in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Continue to wear a mask, wash your hands and please get vaccinated to protect yourself and your loved ones. If you’ve been waiting for the return of winter sports, be sure to look out for the New York State ‘Ski For Free’ Vaccine Incentive

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be holding Hot Chocolate in the Parks events across the district to celebrate the holiday season. The first one will be held in Yonkers at Tibbetts Brook Park on Monday, Dec. 6 at 4 p.m. We will have treats from Delite Bakery. I hope to see you there! 

The deadlines for FEMA disaster assistance and the Small Business Administration’s Physical Disaster Loan applications have been extended to Jan. 4, 2022. If you plan on filing for either FEMA or SBA assistance, I encourage you to do so as soon as possible.

As always, if there is anything my office can do to assist you, please email me at or call (914) 934-5250.

Warm regards,

Shelley Mayer 

State Senator, 37th District
