An events notice: the impending snowstorm that's expected tonight/tomorrow has forced a couple of community groups to cancel their plans. Community Board 6 has canceled its monthly meeting that was scheduled for tomorrow night at 6 p.m., and the Kingsbridge-Riverdale-Van Cortlandt Development Corp.'s Riverdale meeting, which had also been scheduled for tomorrow night, is being called off. We'll keep you posted on their replacement dates if we hear about them.
More events happening this week in the Boogie Down are listed below in our community calendar.
