  • On Friday, May 7, Edward Lynch, president of the Warwick Valley Rotary Club, and Wayne Patterson, a member of both the Warwick Valley Rotary Club and Team Up for Hope, presented a check to Team Up for Hope’s founder, Geoff Green. Team Up for Hope supports local non-profit organizations which are at the forefront of mental health and drug use challenges within our communities. The 501(c)(3) non-profit raises funds for these volunteer organizations, as well as awareness of the issues, resources, and support available, through a series of webinars. It is currently teaming up for hope with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) affiliate chapters in both Orange and Sussex Counties. “I am truly grateful for this donation by the Warwick Rotary Club as the cause which Team Up for Hope represents is near and dear to my heart,” said Green. “To have my friends and colleagues of the Warwick Rotary supporting Team Up for Hope means the world to me. Thank you to all.” Warwick Valley Rotary Club has had a very busy year overcoming COVID challenges. "Doing Good and Having Fun’ is our Club's motto,” said Lynch. “This year, we have already raised well over $25,000 in pursuit of our $34,000 goal. Our Club membership lives up to its community service mission as ‘People of Action. I'm very proud of what we've achieved this year.

Village of Warwick named a Tree City, USA - Warwick,NY - 4/30/21

  • 6 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • On Friday, April 30, first grade children, Principal, Bill Biniaris and teachers from Park Avenue Elementary School gathered in the Hallowed Ground park, home to the original Baptist Meeting House and burial grounds adjacent to Galloway Road and Forester Avenue. They were there to celebrate Arbor Day and the planting of four trees including an Ivory Silk, a Lilac and two Tulip tress. Guest speaker Patricia Reinhardt, chair of the Arbor Day Committee, a former schoolteacher and member of the Warwick Valley Gardeners, spoke about the origins of the celebration and how the idea, which quickly spread throughout the country, was first observed in Nebraska in 1872. She told the children that the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago but the second best time is now and later, read her poem, “Why not hug a tree today.” Praising the members of the DPW and the Shade Tree Commission for keeping the Village beautiful, Reinhardt said, “Look how lucky we are to live in Warwick?” She then asked the children to name some benefits that we receive from trees. The variety of all correct answers included fresh air, a home for birds and animals, paper, houses, beauty and shade. Mayor Michael Newhard introduced other officials present and reported that for the 37th consecutive year Warwick had been named a "Tree City, USA." The designation is awarded by the National Arbor Day Foundation. According to the National Garden Bureau, designation as a Tree City, USA is an asset to any town or village. So are a vital shade tree commission, an inventory of trees, a tree planting and replacement policy and a preservation program. The Village of Warwick qualifies in all areas. Village Shade Tree Commissioner Rob Scheuermann welcomed the school children and explained the virtues of the new trees. Mayor Newhard invited all the children to line up and take turns shoveling some soil to help plant the new trees. And finally they lined up as Craig Wadeson from Wadeson's Home Center, handed out evergreens donated by his company.

Babette Smith's letter to the editor, April 29, 2021

  • 4 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • Babette Smith's letter to the editor, April 29, 2021 To the Editor:  In response to the article about the bridge on Aycoff Lane, I am the owner of the bridge and never refused to repair the bridge. I cannot financially pay the necessary engineering firm required to do the permit application fee of $1500.00 to PA DEP then add the cost of the contractor to do the necessary repairs. I have spoken with the PA DEP in person in the Scranton office with my neighbor, Barbara Alaimo about the necessity of several of the assessments they required that would push the engineering costs to excessive amounts. Considering the fact the repairs would not in any way affect the water in the brook, I spoke with two different contractors about the repairs. They can not touch the bridge without the permit. The second contractor advised the signage on the bridge restricting trucks for the safety of the bridge. Unfortunately I am not able to secure the necessary funds for repairs due to the fact that I remortgaged to pay the medical fees after two bouts of cancer that finally took my husband's life. The equity in my home is just not there. If the three other homeowners on the property were willing to pay their share, we could go forward with the process. I cannot afford to do this alone. I also have my heating oil and had three different ambulance calls for my grandson. I put him in the car and met the ambulances on the bridge approach so they did not have to cross the bridge. Everyone this side of the bridge has had to deal with this.  I want this bridge repaired ust as much as mu neighbors. I do need help and have tried several requests to political figures to see what my options would be, but to no avail. I was never even afforded a return phone call to say we cannot help you.  I am extremely upset that I was portrayed as uncaring by people that were aware of my attempts to get help. I know they are upset and frustrated, and so am I. But perhaps if they were willing to help instead of blaming, we could have a safe bridge again. The remark of no bridge repairs was also incorrect due to replacement of planking and runners. Mr. Bagley and Mrs. Alaimo assisted me in finding a vendor to order the planking. Also incorrect was the remark I rent two properties. I rent only the former home of my parents. I was planning to sell it, but rented to a neighborhood couple who were in need of housing because their rental was being sold.  I am totally open to anyone willing to help or share resources leading to the repair of the bridge. Please write to me at PO Box 449, Milford, PA 18337. At today's prices, bridge repairs could be upwards of $40,000.00. As a 74 year old retired widow raising a special needs grandson, the expectation that I can do this on my own is an unreasonable expectation.  Sincerely, Babette Smith

Although there were high winds and gusts that morning, they braved the conditions and assembled to celebrate Arbor Day .and the planting of a flowering crab apple. The Arbor Day ceremony was held by the Warwick Valley Gardeners in collaboration with the Warwick Tree Commission. It was also another year that the Town of Warwick had been named a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. According to the National Garden Bureau, designation as a Tree City, USA is an asset to any town or village. Communities are judged on having a tree commission, an inventory of trees, a tree planting, replacement policy and a preservation program. “The Town is grateful to our Tree Commission and the Warwick Valley Gardeners for their beautiful gift to our park as well as for all they do as stewards of our environment here in Warwick, “said Supervisor Sweeton. “We are committed to maintaining our status as a recognized Tree City.” Patricia Reinhardt, chair of the Arbor Day Committee and a member of the Warwick Valley Gardeners, served as emcee and introduced the guest speakers. She also encouraged people to volunteer for the Warwick Gardeners, which, in the past six months, had seen an increase of 21 new members. During her talk, Reinhardt quoted from a poem by E.E. Cummings. “I thank You God for this most amazing day for the leaping greenly spirits of trees . . .” The ceremony concluded with everyone invited to pick up the ceremonial shovel and toss some fresh soil on the new tree.

Operation Clean Sweep returns for 2021 - Warwick,NY - 4/24/21

  • 3 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • It appears that some of Warwick’s traditional outdoor events, which were canceled last year due to COVID-19, are coming back. Last weekend Michael Johndrow, executive director of the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce, was pleased to announce the successful conclusion of another “Operation Clean Sweep,” the annual roadside cleanup sponsored by the Chamber. This year’s event, like the one in 2019, was again changed from a weekend to a weeklong event that ran from April 17, to Sunday, April 25. On Saturday, April 24, volunteers were invited to stop by the table near the Chamber’s South Street Caboose office to pick up free rubber gloves, garbage bags and safety vests for those planning to pick-up trash on busy roads. Each year various groups, clubs and individuals take part by pre-registering their routes in order to ensure garbage pickup by the Department of Public Works on the following Monday and Tuesday. And each year the County also waves the landfill fee. However, there are numerous others who participate in the Town wide event and many people just volunteer on their own without registering. In addition to the roadside clean up, there were several other scheduled programs that day. . The Warwick Lions Club, for example, provided a shredding truck, at its own expense, for the benefit of local residents. The annual “pill drop” organized by the Warwick Valley Coalition in cooperation with the Warwick Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) collected approximately 150 pounds of unused prescription and over the counter medications. This year’s Operation Clean Sweep, which originated in 1990, was again coordinated by the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce with the aid of Warwick High School student Elizabeth Verboys, a member of Girl Scout CadetTroop733.
