Many thanks to Ronni Diamondstein for this lovely article in the June issue of Inside Chappaqua Magazine.  Thanks as well to the awesome Grace Bennett, founder and publisher of the magazine and recently celebrated its 10th anniversary.

It is so nice to see Hillary Clinton’s important work and this blog  promoted this way.


Blogging for the former First Lady, Senator, Secretary of State and…

by Ronni Diamondstein

There’s no doubt from the media buzz around Hillary Clinton’s future since she left the office of Secretary of State that many people, not only in Chappaqua, but across the nation and world, have not given up hope that she will fulfill what many see as her destiny.

Numerous websites and blogs have followed Clinton since she lost the presidential nomination in 2008, and more are sprouting up now that her future political plans remain a mystery. You can find them on the web, on Facebook and Twitter. Still4Hill continues to be one of the most prominent.

It was a perfectly beautiful day,  and I was lucky enough this year to meet up with a group of Hillary friends for the Memorial Day parade and ceremonies.  In addition to the pictures I took myself, I have some shared by friends.

There were wonderful pipes and drums, and the Horace Greeley High School band played flawlessly.  Girl Scouts of Troop 120 placed the wreath.  It was great to see girls doing it.  There were many,  many dogs, some with flag bandanas, and all were well-behaved throughout.

One special  doggie I finally got to meet was Maggie Mae, Pup Reporter, who writes a pet column for Grace Bennett’s Inside Chappaqua Magazine.  Maggie’s mom, Ronni Diamondstein,  has written an article featuring this blog for the June issue.

Ronni and her canine cub reporter had their picture taken with Hillary.  It was very hard to get close, but I cropped a few where you can see Ronni and Hillary.  In one shot,  you can also see Maggie Mae.

I want to thank especially Rumana Alvi, Sharon Yarborough, and Rosemary Rowlands (who had her picture taken with Hillary) for sharing their images with me.  It was a wonderful day, and yes, I did get to talk with Hillary.   No, it was not about 2016.  Sorry, but as I have said here often, that is the best way to waste your two minutes with Hillary Rodham Clinton.  What a beautiful day with a beautiful lady and her loyalists in her hometown!

I would like to thank Mme. Secretary for her kindness and patience taking time to meet me. She is most gracious and generous. One thing I forgot to ask – I was so blown away by her kind attention – was how I could get her press releases.

On with the show!

Ten years ago, a brilliant and savvy young woman began a local magazine to cover events and promote businesses in the New Castle, NY area.  Grace Bennett’s Inside Chappaqua Magazine gained a following, succeeded immensely, and last night Grace celebrated that success with a grand soiree shared by family, friends, and business associates.


In the course of the evening, County Legislator Mike Kaplowitz presented Grace with a proclamation that today, March 15, is “Inside Chappaqua Day” in Westchester County.   She looked like a movie star receiving the document!


Of course readers here know that Chappaqua is where Bill and Hillary Clinton live.  Grace was able to accompany Hillary on her final official trip to Africa as Secretary of State last summer, and Hillary acknowledged Grace’s accomplishment.


So we congratulate Grace on the 10th anniversary of Inside Chappaqua Magazine and on the special day of county-wide celebration.
