The Rockland County Disaster Recovery Workshop at Stony Point, which FEMA had to cancel last week due to the snow, will be held this Friday, February 15 and Saturday, February 16.

The workshops will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days and are free and open to the public. They will take place at the school at Immaculate Conception Church, 26 John St., Stony Point.
