Next month will offer a chance to travel back in time at Washington Irving’s Sunnyside, 3 West Sunnyside Lane, Irvington.

‘From a Child’s Perspective’ takes place at 10:30 am, noon, and 1:30 pm on Thursdays in August. Parents and children can explore Sunnyside, the home of Irving, decorated with period children’s clothing and toys.

Groups can arrive early or stay later to listen to stories, play games, participate in a scavenger hunt, and enjoy other hands-on activities. General admission is $12, seniors $10, $6 for children ages 3 – 17, and free for children under the age of three. For more information, call (914) 631-8200.

Also in the area next month, anyone who needs more details on the Affordable Care Act can attend a workshop from 10:30 am to 11:30 am on Thursday, August 8 at the Greenburgh Public Library, 300 East Main Street, Elmsford.

The workshop is presented by the Business Council of Westchester and will offer information on the new national healthcare policy. Information will also be provided for businesses and how they can qualify for tax credits, with print companies in the area no doubt busy carrying out informational brochure and stationery printing.

The Affordable Care Act will start to be implemented over the next several years and business need to be prepared so they avoid facing fines. Attendees are advised to bring questions for the Business Council for more personalized information related to their business. For more information, contact the Greenburgh Library.
