It's time once again for our annual Senior BBQ. This event sponsored by the Town and the Warwick Valley Rotary provides a hot dog lunch and full chicken dinner free to any Senior Citizen in the Town of Warwick. The BBQ will be held on Tuesday, August 26th from 11:00-3:00p.m. at the Union Corners Park pavilion. If you are a member of any of our seven senior clubs you can get a ticket from your club. Otherwise, you can get a ticket by coming to my office at 132 Kings Highway and see Rosemarie. There is no charge for the tickets, thanks to the generosity of so many of the service organizations, volunteers, veterans' groups, Coleman BBQ, Pioneer Chef Paul and the Rosenberg family. This is the senior citizen event of the year, so don't miss it! Music, food, raffles, prize giveaways and good friendship make this a special day. All seniors are encouraged to get their ticket and attend. Again, there is no charge for the ticket, but you do need one to take advantage of the festivities. Dial-A-Bus rides are available by calling 986-2877, and golf carts will be on site, courtesy of Orange County Golf Carts, to help you get to the pavilion. For more information please call 986-1120, ext. 241.

Former Town Supervisor, Tony Houston is raising funds to place a new plaque honoring those from our Town who served in the Civil War in the lobby of Town Hall. If you would like to contribute, please send a donation to the Town of Warwick, 132 Kings Highway, Warwick, New York 10990, and put "Civil War Plaque" in the memo line. All funds will be placed in a dedicated escrow account to pay for the plaque. Come join the dedication ceremony on Saturday, August 9th at 2:00p.m. Thank you, Tony, for this great effort!

The next regular meeting of the Town Board will be held on Thursday, August 14th, 2014 at 7:30 pm in the Warwick Town Hall, 132 Kings Highway.
