A number of years ago, Rev. Compton helped to initiate restoration of the tennis court/ basketball court that is beside the Agora House, on Belvedere property. It has been enjoyed by our members and youth for a number of years. The time has come for a bit more maintenance, as the basketball hoops have fallen into disrepair. Help support this effort!

A clean up project for the wetlands area on Sheldon Ave. in Tarrytown has been organized by a local resident for Saturday, April 21 "Earth Day, 2018". This area formerly belonged to the Unification Church but was given over to the town a number of years ago. A fair amount of trash, old tires, and other garbage has been dumped there over the years. This would be a great opportunity for any of our members living in the South Tarrytown area, also known as "Pennybridge", to get involved in a helpful community activity.
