Fujifilm Holdings America Corp. and Fujifilm North America Corp. maintain their headquarters in Valhalla, less than 3 miles from the Kensico Dam Plaza. For the 16th straight year, Fujifilm employees staged a Volunteer Day at the plaza as part of the Westchester Parks Foundation’s Adopt-A-Park Program. The Fujifilm employees cleaned the “Circle of Remembrance” that rings The Rising, Westchester County’s Sept. 11th memorial. They also did mulching and weeding around the county park. 

A highlight of the event was Fujifilm’s presentation of a $7,500 contribution to the foundation. The foundation works to promote the preservation, use and public enjoyment of the 18,000 acres of parks, trails and open spaces within the county’s parks system. 

The Adopt-A-Park program is open to any civic-minded organization, ranging from corporations to neighborhood groups. A sign with the name of the park and sponsoring group are placed at the park once it is adopted by an organization. A minimum of four work sessions must be performed during the year.
