Activities will include talks and video presentations about the tiger and its habitat.

Children can make tiger masks and visit real tigers at the zoo’s Tiger Mountain exhibit.

The “Save The Tiger” weekend is part of Lawless’ Girl Scout Gold Award Project. The award is the highest award a Girl Scout can earn by working more than 80 hours on a community service project of her choosing that will improve the world and be sustainable beyond her involvement.  Read full original article at The Daily Voice


 Trump Golf Links At Ferry Point Opens In The Bronx

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York City’s first new golf course in more than 50 years is now open.

The Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point, which was built on a former landfill in the Throggs Neck section of the Bronx, officially opened Wednesday morning. Tee time reservations are now being accepted online.

The championship caliber course is a collaboration between Donald Trump and course designer, golfing great Jack Nicklaus.  It cost a reported $269 million, making it the most expensive public golf facility ever built in the U.S.  The course boasts spectacular views of the waterfront and city skyline.

While the course is open to the public, it is more expensive to play at Ferry Point than other city courses. For a city resident to play 18 holes on the weekend it’ll cost $169. If they want to play at most other public city courses it costs up to $48. Non-residents will pay $215 at Ferry Point.  The course says it’s well worth the money when you consider other Trump golf clubs cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in membership and dues.

“It is not an exclusive country club, it is an open public golf course to New York City golfers and they’re going to get a great bargain but they’re going to still get a country club experience,” said Ron Lieberman, executive vice president for the Trump Organization.  “It was built by the city to be a world class quality golf course. We are going to hold many, many majors here,” Trump’s son, Eric, said. Read full original article at CBSNewYork

Family Services of Westchester Seeks Scarsdale Foster Families

Family Services of Westchester Seeks Scarsdale Foster Families

Family Services of Westchester Seeks Scarsdale Foster FamiliesFSW’s Therapeutic Foster Care program serves children of all social, economic and ethnic backgrounds.

Family Services of Westchester, which runs more than 50 social service and mental health programs, is seeking Westchester families for its Therapeutic Foster Care program, the group announced this week.

The program serves children of all social, economic and ethnic backgrounds who need “the support of loving, nurturing foster parents.” These children are considered special, and some may have behavioral, social or emotional problems.

“By giving a child the chance to grow up in a home and within a community, you can help this child learn how to function in society and how to care for themselves once they are old enough to do so,” said Dori Lewis, Homefinder and Clinician for FSW, in a statement. “There is no doubt that living in a foster home increases the child’s chance of success exponentially and FSW is there every step of the way to provide assistance.”

Below is FSW’s statement about its Therapeutic Foster Care program with information on who to contact with questions:

Westchester County is currently faced with a shortage of homes for foster care children with special needs and Family Services of Westchester (FSW) wants to partner with you so that every child can find a safe, caring, and supportive place to live. Our Therapeutic Foster Care program serves children of all social, economic and ethnic backgrounds. These youth are special – they may have behavioral, social, or emotional problems – but they need homes and the support of loving, nurturing foster parents. Importantly, FSW offers a wide-range of supports for those willing to open their homes, and hearts, to a child in need. These supports ensure that the foster parents who work with us have the tools they need to provide a safe, consistent and structured home environment where a child can develop skills to succeed in the home, school and community.

The shortage of foster homes in Westchester means that children in need are placed in situations far away from their home communities and/or in institutional settings. Neither of which is optimal for the child. “By giving a child the chance to grow up in a home and within a community, you can help this child learn how to function in society and how to care for themselves once they are old enough to do so,” remarks Dori Lewis, Homefinder and Clinician. “There is no doubt that living in a foster home increases the child’s chance of success exponentially and FSW is there every step of the way to provide assistance.” This includes specialized parent skills training; 24-hour support from our professional staff; weekly home visits by program staff; bi-weekly group support sessions; respite services; and tax free monetary compensation.

Through counseling and the support of their foster parents, the children are encouraged to acquire better self-control and improved social skills. Ultimately, our goal is to strengthen the relationship between birth parents and their children and to assist with reunification where possible or to prepare the child for independent living. “By becoming a foster parent, you have an opportunity to make a tremendous impact on the life of a child in need. You will also be amazed by the impact this will have on your own life,” says Ms. Lewis.

To learn more about FSW’s Therapeutic Foster Care program, please call Dori Lewis at 914-872-5278 or email her at Dlewis. Information sessions are held the first Thursday of every month in our office in White Plains, or you can make an appointment to suit your needs.

FSW was founded in 1954 and runs more than 50 social service and mental health programs for all ages, including Adoption, Head Start/Early Head Start, Adult and Youth Residences and Veterans Outreach and Support. Visit www.fsw.org for more information.
