Santa visits Railroad Green during Home for the Holidays - Warwick,NY - 12/10/17

  • 1 photo
  • On Saturday, December 9, Warwick was experiencing the first snow storm of the season. Santa and his sleigh would have had no problem traveling but the members of the merchant Guild decided it would be safer for visitors traveling by car if Santa’s scheduled visit was postponed. And so the following day, Sunday, December 10, families came out to enjoy good weather and a popular and traditional holiday event in the Village Park at Railroad Green. Each year during Home for the Holidays, the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce arranges to have Santa visit Warwick. And, as usual, Santa was happy and willing to hear special requests and pose for photos in his sled.

Residents celebrate Hanukkah at Menorah lighting - Warwick,NY - 12/12/17

  • 7 photos
  • It had been raining lightly and a bit on the chilly side but on Tuesday evening, December 12, a crowd of about 75 residents, including Town of Warwick Supervisor Michael Sweeton and Mayor Michael Newhard, gathered just outside Lewis Park as Moshe Schwartzberg, joined by Rabbi Meir Borenstein of the Chabad of Orange County, began officiating at the 24th anniversary of Warwick’s Menorah lighting. Schwartzberg began the ceremony by telling the story of how the Temple of Jerusalem was about to be rededicated following its recapture after occupation and defilement by the pagan Syrian-Greeks under Antiochus IV. A small band of fighters, led by Judah Maccabee, he explained, fought to preserve the Jewish religion and culture and their right to worship God. Although greatly outnumbered by a much larger and more professional army they recaptured the Holy Temple, which had been defiled with idol worship and pagan sacrifices. When the Maccabees sought to rededicate the temple, however, they found only one small cruse of oil to kindle the eternal light. Miraculously, he explained, because God was pleased with what they had accomplished, the oil lasted for eight days. And that provided enough time for the holy oil to be replenished. Schwartzberg also explained the origin of the shamas, the ninth candle used to light the others. But before lighting the first candle he read the sacred prayers, first in English so that everyone would understand, and then in Hebrew, according to the tradition of the ceremony. “Blessed are you Hashem our God King of the universe,” Schwartzberg read aloud, “who has kept us alive, sustained us and brought us to this season . . .” And then he repeated in Hebrew, “Baruch ata Adonai . . .” The crowd then headed down Main Street to Forever Jewelers where they were served refreshments including traditional latkes prepared by Doris Schwartzberg. Rabbi Borenstein praised Schwartzberg and his family for their many years of conducting this ceremony. He also presented several small gifts including dreydles for the children. The Rabbi and Schwartzberg then led everyone in singing traditional Hannukah songs.

Warwick unites to help needy families - Warwick,NY - 12/9/17

  • 2 photos
  • Another example of how the Warwick community unites to make a difference was the annual Holiday Project for Children in Need held Saturday, Dec. 9, at the Warwick Reformed Church. Warwick Valley Rotarians, Warwick Lions Club, Chosun Taekwondo Leadership Team, Backpack Snack Attack Program and Warwick Reformed Church plus many other businesses and individuals worked together for a year to create a memorable holiday for local families in need. Approximately 160 children came from various programs including Backpack Snack Attack, the Mustard Seed Ministry and the Alamo And since a large number of guests were expected, this year’s event was divided into two back-to-back parties hosted first by the Rotarians and then by the Lions. That enabled volunteer elves to escort small groups of children to the various stations, which included games with prizes, cookie decoration, professional photos with Santa and a holiday meal. A “shop” with new donated gift items, where the children choose gifts for their families and then wrap them was a big hit. Santa also presented all the children with giant gift bags filled with clothing, shoes, underwear, sox, hats, gloves and toys chosen just for them. And a ShopRite gift card was included. Claire Gabelmann coordinated the event for the Lions Club and Tina Buck was the Warwick Rotary event chair, assisted by. Marge King-Porter. Each year members of the community sponsor the children by donating $60 per child, $100 per family or by shopping for a specific child and providing the items indicated. Other businesses and individuals donate new gift items, wrapping paper, pizza and desserts. And still others volunteer their time. For additional information about this or next year’s event contact Warwick Rotary at (845) 987-7297 or visit:warwickvalleyrotary.org or contact Warwick Lions Club at (845) 986-1681 or email:warwickcares@gmail.com.

WTBQ second annual Toys for Military Tots distribution day - Warwick,NY - 12/11/17

  • 2 photos
  • On Monday, December 11, contributors to the second annual Toys for Military Tots toy drive assembled at the office of Orange County Community Radio WTBQ (1110 AM/93.5 FM) to celebrate the success of the program and the distribution of the toys. The program was launched in 2016 by Station owner Frank Truatt and Station Manager Taylor Sterling, who had conceived the idea after speaking with Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus about the needs of the children of our military, both active duty and those of disabled veterans. The station then teamed up with numerous organizations to help support this toy drive. And drop off boxes were located throughout the County as well as at the WTBQ office. “The outpouring from the County was amazing,” said Sterling. “The concept conceived with Steve Neuhaus has surpassed all of our expectations.” This year the station again teamed up with Neuhaus, County Clerk Annie Rabbit, District Attorney David Hoovler, the Orange County Veterans Service Agency (VSA) and several other groups, including the Nam Knights, Beth Mindes of the Child Care Council of Orange County, Orange County Partnership Director of Business Retention and Expansion Amanda Dana, Sally Woglam, a third-grade teacher at Park Avenue Elementary School in Warwick, who collected four large boxes of toys, and Phil Royle, LEGOLAND New York’s head of community and project relations. "The happiness these toys will bring to these children of the Military on Christmas morning is truly an outpouring of love and caring from everyone in Orange County,” said Sterling. “Thank you all. This toy drive has taken on a life of its own. The spirit of giving back is contagious.” For additional information email Taylor@wtbq.com
