40-under-40 celebrates first annual awards at Villa Barone
The Putnam County Chambers of Commerce hosted its first ever 40-under-40 awards at Villa Barone Hilltop Manor last Friday evening inside a packed ballroom that honored the county’s top trailblazers across a variety of industries. Virtually half of the recipients either live or work in Mahopac-Carmel. Those with ties to the community include people from the financial sector, restaurant business, medical field, journalism, education, marketing, real estate, video production and more. Fifty-six nominees were selected from a pool of countless entries and the top 40 were selected by a panel of judges. The 40-under-40 spent the evening wining and dining while making great networking connections that will further strengthen local business relationships throughout Mahopac and the broader county. Mahopac News is proud to share our pictures of the first annual 40-under-40 awards.

The Freezin’ for a Reason annual fundraiser
The Freezin’ for a Reason annual fundraiser took place on Sunday to raise money for cystic fibrosis research. Started by the Stack family of Mahopac, the event took place at the Mahopac Firehouse and included a dunk tank for particpants to love, or hate, depending on where they sat. Councilman John Lupinacci was one of several people to sit on the hot -- or cold -- seat and was eventually dunked into freezing water in the middle of a January afternoon. Eleven-year-old Jacqueline Stack lives every day with cystic fibrosis yet plays soccer with the Mahopac ThunderHawks and continues to keep an active lifestyle. The ThunderHawks held a clothing drive later that afternoon, collecting clothes, shoes, sneakers, toys and bikes. The 12th annual Jump in the Lake will be held at Sycamore Park on March 9. For more information, visit FreezinForCysticFibrosis.com, register online at westchester.cff.org/freezin or call 845-222-6233. Photos by: Tabitha Pearson Marshall

The Lion, the Witch and the Wordrobe
The Mahopac Drama Company presented The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe on three nights last week at the Mahopac High School auditorium. In conjunction with the production, the students also held a food drive where donations from the public were exchanged for raffles to win gift cards to various local businesses. The donated goods are for St. John’s Food Pantry in Mahopac, and now, the shelves are stocked at the Pantry so that those in need can enjoy Thanksgiving, too. The students had to work overtime and with a shortened schedule to overcome the time lost from Hurricane Sandy in order to be ready for their performance. Here are some pictures that we snapped from their performance!
