Sleepy Hollow residents can now register for recreation programs online.  The village is proud to announce that we have made Community Pass available to our customers.  At this time, we are encouraging families to create their own Community Pass account by going to the general registration page, and then type in the name of our organization which is Village of Sleepy Hollow, NY.  Once your account is created, you will receive an e-mail that contains your log in information.  When the recreation department adds programs that require registration, they will be listed so individuals can choose the activity and register.  Residents will be able to securely register for programs conveniently from home or work by using their computer or smart phones.  Another advantage of this recreation software program is the department will be able to develop a data base of e-mail addresses from our customers in order to better publicize our programs and events.  More benefits of this new registration program will continue to be advertised as we proceed.  If you have any questions, call the recreation department at 366-5109.
