The Mamaroneck Historical Society is seeking the support of Mamaroneck Chamber of Commerce in their effort to remove the James Fenimore Cooper Murals from Mamaroneck High School walls and reinstall them at public sites in our community.
Public art generates excitement, leading to increased foot traffic, which benefits surrounding businesses. In 1934, students envisioned an installation of public art to enhance the school cafeteria. After seven years of planning, fundraising and painting the eight murals were installed. The murals focus on the life and novels of Mamaroneck resident James Fenimore Cooper. The Historical Society encourages you to visit their website to learn more about the history of these murals as well as how you can help save these works of art.

☘️ The Sound Shore St. Patrick’s Day Parade is back! Please join the Sound Shore St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee at 1:30 pm on Sunday, March 20th, 2022, as they proudly march down Mamaroneck Avenue in Mamaroneck, NY, once again. Due to the postponement of both the 2020 and 2021 parades, this year’s event will feature Co-Grand Marshals: Kate Bialo and Joe Durney. The parade will also feature LMC Media’s very own Matt Sullivan as Master of Ceremonies!
The focus of the parade is to promote Irish heritage and the American immigrant experience in the Sound Shore community, as well as to provide college scholarships to local students. The goal each year will be to produce a quality family event that celebrates the great contributions of Irish and other American Immigrant Heritage in the Sound Shore area. ☘️

Race and immigration status are lines that divide or connect us. With greater understanding and information, those lines blur. LMC Media’s web series “Lines Between Us” uses animation to educate, inspire, and create awareness about issues concerning racism and immigration. LMC Media worked with nonprofits that specialize in these issues to help identify voices that can speak out and tell individual stories. The videos are short stories told by an individual willing to speak on topics that have affected their lives.
Episodes will be released three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) beginning January 10, 2022. Stay tuned for more info!

Lines Between Us Special Zoom Event
There was a virtual meeting discussing the web series on Tues, 1/25 that aimed to discuss police relations in our community with the objective of building bridges to honest discourse, understanding various perspectives & growing stronger community bonds. The event consisted of:
Through CRC we will identify the hard-working community members who have been victimized or treated unfairly because of their immigration status. Through their voices, we will hear about their fears, and what it means to be an immigrant in the day and age of ICE.
This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrants Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by ArtsWestchester.
