  • 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.

Warwick resident’s Christmastime lights returns - Warwick,NY - 12/11/20

  • 7 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • With more than 50,000 lights and music, no Town of Warwick home has attracted more tourists at Christmastime than the home of Vincent Poloniak on Spanktown Road in Florida, NY. It takes Poloniak and a few friends about three weeks to complete the annual project. But last year, Poloniac had a medical issue and his doctor ordered that he just rest and postpone any arduous tasks including the Christmas display. But thankfully he promised to resume the spectacular decoration at Christmastime 2020 And it’s bigger and better than ever. It’s also a welcome relief for families that have had to curtail some Christmas traditions. The only request is that visitors wear masks and practice social distancing. . Poloniak and his wife, Joan, now deceased, began decorating their home for Christmas back in 1973, when their daughter Paula was only five years old. “It all started with a Santa we purchased in Newburgh,” he recalled, “and then we would add to our decorations each year. But I got wild in the 1990s and that developed into what you see today.” When he was once asked how long he expected to be doing this, Poloniak answered, “I can’t stop now. Too many people look forward to it. And I love seeing the children and how happy and surprised they are by the display." He also didn’t expect to run out of new visitors. “The children who came here years ago,” he said, “now bring their children.” Visiting Spanktown Road to enjoy his spectacular display has become a Christmastime tradition in the Town of Warwick. The lights are turned on at 4 p.m.

  • They’re on the move. Four years ago the Town of Warwick had completely renovated its event facility, the Quality of Life Building, created by correction officers when it operated as the former Mid Orange Correctional facility, and renamed it “Wickham Woodlands Manor.” That year a month long “Made Local” initiative kicked off with the Wickham Works’ Holiday Maker Market at Wickham Woodlands Manor. The local artisans returned to Wickham Woodlands the following year and in the next two years, held the event inside at the Warwick Valley Community Center. “This year,” said Melissa Shaw-Smith, creative director at Wickham Works,” we had to hold the Love Local Wickham Works Holiday Maker Market outdoors. And Lewis Park was a perfect location for our annual event.” This year’s Holiday Maker Market was held on Friday and Saturday, November 27-28. That Saturday also happened to be “Small Business Saturday,” which, along with good weather, helped bring out a large number of visitors. All shoppers, however, were required to wear masks and keep safe distance. The Thanksgiving Weekend event featured 20 vendors with hand crafted holiday gift items including clothing, body care products, jewelry, blown glass ornaments, metal arts, leather and turned wooden goods, ceramics, holiday decorations and fresh wreaths, art made from reclaimed materials, and more. A $3 entry fee was collected to help support the Warwick Historical Society and the Warwick Valley Community Center.. “We thank everyone,” said Smith, “who joined us this weekend to support our local artists and artisans and the non-profit organizations the Warwick Historical Society, Wickham Works and the Warwick Valley Community Center.”
