Week of November 11, 2018

The holiday season is upon us, and once again I ask you to remember our local merchants as you fill that holiday wish list.  The Town and its three Villages have so many wonderful shops that hold unique treasures that will delight anyone on your list.  Small businesses here in Warwick depend on this season for so much of their success, so please do your best to shop local; you’ll be glad you did. 

I would like to thank the Nicholas P. Lesando, Jr. American Legion Post 214 and the VFW Post 4662 for a very moving ceremony to honor our Veterans on Veterans Day 2018.  Thanks also to Florida American Legion Post 1250 and Greenwood Lake American Legion Post 1443 for holding equally impressive celebrations for all our Veterans this past Sunday.  We can never honor these brave men and women enough, but they should know that they always have the heartfelt thanks of their community.

An amazing exhibit on the Vietnam War and the year 1968 just closed at the Warwick Historical Society’s Buckbee Center.  This is just one of the many wonderful, professional and educational events put on by this fantastic not-for-profit organization.  In addition to this, the Warwick Historical Society owns and maintains most of the iconic historic buildings in Town.  This is a herculean task for anyone, and it needs your help to ensure that our history continues to be preserved.  Please visit www.whsny.org and consider joining or donating today.

If something is broken, why not bring it to the Repair Café to be held on Saturday, November 17th, at the Senior Center behind Warwick Town Hall, 132 Kings Highway.  The Repair Café will begin at 10:00 a.m., and the last repair will be accepted at 1:30 p.m.  Limit two items per person. At the Repair Café you'll find tools and supplies to help make repairs to wooden furniture, small appliances, electronics, & housewares, clothes & textiles, lamps & lighting, crockery, toys and more.  You'll also find "repair coaches", such as electricians, seamstresses, mechanics, knife and tool sharpeners, and all-purpose fix-it pros with superior technical skills. Visit http://www.repaircafehv.org or www.sustainablewarwick.org for more information about the Repair Café concept.

The next regular meeting of the Town Board will be held on Thursday, November 15, 2018, at 7:30 p.m. in the Warwick Town Hall, 132 Kings Highway.
