Week of August 21, 2016

Orange County will hold the next Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on Friday, September 23rd, for businesses and farms and on Saturday, September 24th for residents.  It will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and is free for residents.  Businesses and farms only must register in advance by calling (845)-291-2664.  The collection center will be at the New Hampton Fire Training Center in Goshen on Route 17M.

Congratulations to Daniel Campagna, Boy Scout Troop 121’s latest Eagle Scout.  Daniel  completely renovated the ladies room at the Greenwood Lake Elks Lodge #2067.  This is just one example of the many community service efforts by Daniel.  Well done!

I would just like to offer my condolences to the family of Sharon Gehler.  Sharon was a dedicated person who, through her work with the Greenwood Lake Elks and Lions, has made our Town a better place to live.  We will miss her energy, exuberance and her sense of humor that made everything work.

Congratulations to Greenwood Lake Mayor, Jesse Dwyer, and Village of Warwick Trustee, George McManus, on being honored as Hudson Valley Heroes for their work with the Greenwood Lake and Warwick Prevention Coalitions in their fight against drug use by our area youth.  Congratulations to both of these fine public servants.

The New York State Department of Transportation will be resurfacing Route 17A from Ball Road to Iron Forge Road, starting on or about August 28th.  Please leave extra time when traveling through this area.
