❑ WWBA Member Earns Community Praise – In the July 31, 2021 issue of “The Record Review,” the local paper for Bedford, Pound Ridge, and Lewisboro, the author of Bedford’s Talk of the Town led his column with kudos for Katonah resident, and WWBA member, Rebecka Levitt, along with her son Michael. Rebecka and Michael worked together to plant a small garden between the sidewalk and the road in front of their house. Rebecka got permission from the town to plant the area, which technically is part of the town’s curtilage. The plot attracted birds, bees, and even rabbits, as well as approving words from neighbors. WWBA commends Rebecka and Michael for contributing to the beauty of their community.

Interview of the Month
An Interview with
by Amanda C. Fried
I am not known for being spontaneous (even the word makes me shiver), so in preparing for my first President’s message, I re-read past September messages for inspiration.
Lisa Denig, who is goal-oriented and driven, shared with us her three goals for her Presidency: social media, community service, and social events. Susan Colson, who thinks globally and acts locally, focused on the initiatives of WBASNY and the benefits of a WWBA membership. Angela Morcone Giannini, who is the living embodiment of catching bees with honey, spoke about collaboration and gratitude. Robin Carton (a/k/a Mom), who always strives to shine the spotlight on others, wrote about the incredible accomplishments of the various WWBA Committees.
I’ll admit, this research project led to a bit of an existential crisis. Who am I and what do I stand for? Yes, I then went down the rabbit hole of Hamilton lyrics and starting singing “If you stand for nothing, Burr, what’ll you fall for?” But I digress.
