Bedford Shoutouts Nov-Dec 2017

This, that and the other things



Mutual Support
We salute Hearts 4 Heroes and the veterans and active-duty military they serve. The North Salem-based non-profit provides free equine-assisted and canine-assisted therapy to current and former service members suffering from physical and psychological impairments while also securing homes for abandoned dogs and horses. H4HUS uses a variety of animal therapies to support the human participants; a “no talk” environment and the unconditional support of animals combine for the program’s success. h4hus.org


On The Rhoad
Bedford native and Fox Lane grad Kristina Loftus and her husband, Matt, co-founded Rhoback, a men’s activewear brand, in December 2016. Rhoback, named for the brand’s muse—the Rhodesian Ridgeback—donates a portion of its proceeds to The American Humane Society’s Service Dog Program. This summer, the newlyweds hit the road in their teardrop camper (the “rhoadie”) with dog Bunker, to promote the Rhoback lifestyle. From Atlanta to Armonk, Ridgefield, and Nantucket, they slung thousands of sweat-wicking, breathable polos while building an impressive social-media following and loyal customer base. rhoback.com 


#SincerelyMe Order your tickets today to Broadway’s Dear Evan Hansen to catch Katonah’s Noah Galvin, 23, in the Tony Award–winning musical from November 21 through mid-January. Galvin, who previously starred in ABC’s “The Real O’Neals” and honed his theatrical skills locally on the stages of John Jay High School and Bedford Community Theater, was named the temporary replacement for the role of Hansen, a socially anxious high-school senior whose story will simultaneously break your heart and charm you. dearevanhansen.com


Public Gardens
Katonah’s Lasdon Garden and Arboretum is home to the Westchester County Merchant Marine Memorial, Trail of Honor, Korean War Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, as well as the Westchester County Veterans Museum. Earlier this year, the park opened its onsite conservatory, a 2,500-square-foot glass structure which will house not only botanical exhibitions but also weddings, concerts, and holiday shows. The garden is open to the public seven days a week. lasdonpark.org


This ’n That  
Kent Decor, the creation of former fashion executive/lounge owner Michael Kalesti, has opened on Court Road in Bedford Village. Filled with a combination of new and vintage contemporary home furnishings, the boutique showcases a beautifully curated collection, including mid-century furniture, objects, and lighting. Kent Décor also offers home styling, staging, and an established platform for selling your items on consignment. kentdecor.com


E-Z as 1-2-3
Here’s a handy little gem we just learned about: you can pick up an E-Z Pass at the Bedford town clerk’s office! No waiting for it to come in the mail. Just stop by, Monday to Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, pay $25 for the pass (the pass fee will be applied to your account), follow the activation instructions, and your pass will be ready for use 24 hours after activation. 914-666-4534
