Week of May 1, 2016

This Sunday we will have the opportunity once again to honor our Moms as we celebrate Mother’s Day. Nothing can make all the world’s ills disappear faster than a reassuring word or big hug from the one person who just seems to always be in control. Your mom is always the one who will love you unconditionally, believe in you without question, and support you no matter how harebrained an idea you have. Hopefully, your mom is still with you, or, if not, at least will be in your mind and heart this Sunday, so that you can say thanks for everything and for giving you the chance to experience this great world we live in. Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms past and present!

On Saturday, May 14, Rebecca Garloch will receive her hard-earned Girl Scout Gold Award! This is the highest award a Girl Scout can achieve, comparable to the Eagle Scout in Boy Scouts. Rebecca, with the help of the Ladies Society at St. Peter’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, made 152 pillows, which were then given to the residents of Schervier Pavilion here in Warwick. Rebecca is an outstanding young lady and a shining example of the caliber of young people in our Town; we are all very proud of her. Congratulations, Rebecca!

I would like to thank the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce, the Warwick DPW, our County Government, and all the volunteers who collected the roadside trash this past weekend. It’s amazing that some carelessly blemish our beautiful landscape, but it’s also amazing that we have so many within our community who care enough to donate their time in the Clean Sweep effort. Thank you to all; you have made our great Town that much better.

The next regular meeting of the Town Board will be held on Thursday, May 12, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. in the Warwick Town Hall, 132 Kings Highway.
