Greenwood Lake receives $5000 to promote tourism - Warwick, NY - 6/29/15

  • 5 photos
  • Greenwood Lake boasts Orange County’s largest fresh water lake. The Village has several waterfront boat launches and marinas, and is home to scenic Thomas P. Morahan Beach, a town park, which serves as a public access spot to the picturesque lake. In 2006, the park was named after the late New York State Senator Morahan, in recognition of his public service and steadfast support of Warwick. On Monday, June 29, Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus presented Greenwood Lake Mayor Jesse Dwyer with a $5,000 check to help promote tourism in the village. The funds were obtained from the County Bed and Breakfast taxes. Neuhaus and Dwyer were joined by Town of Warwick Supervisor Michael Sweeton and Village of Greenwood Lake Attorney John Buckheit at the lakeside ceremony.

But, it happened, and those who still came were forced inside for the day. Even her tent near the front door of the lodge was disrupted and tossed by winds that came with the rain. • To learn more about the rescue group and perhaps make a donation go to safeandsoundrescue.org or call Karyn at 862-268-6755.

For the second year in a row, Jefferson-based Texas Smoke BBQ won the top prizes for ribs and sauce. Although Sunday’s weather was an improvement, it once again started to rain again at 4:30 p.m., immediately after the performance of the Artimus Pyle Band.
