Kristen Fortuna and Robin Gerry, co –chairs of the Trauma Institute of Orange County, issued a statement that Sterling was nominated because of her on the air and off the air focus and attention on helping the most vulnerable people in our communities get and learn about crucial services and goods. “Her consistent support of those on margins of our communities,” they stated, “is proof of her dedication to bring more grace and peace to our traumatized friends and neighbors. She arranges coat drives, supports and collects for school supply donations, gets the message out about suicide prevention, substance abuse recovery efforts, how to access services and so forth.

Since January 2009, elementary school children in this area have been taking advantage of Backpack Snack Attack, a charitable program designed to insure that needy children always have enough to eat.

There will be one seating at 6:00 p.m. for the dinner featuring salad, entrée, soft drinks, dessert and coffee. A cash bar will be available. And there will also be raffles for restaurant gift certificates, Seiko watches and other prizes. . The cost per person is $45 payable in advance and all proceeds benefit Backpack Snack Attack. “Thanks to the tremendous support of Grappa Ristorante owners Tony and Nick,” said volunteer Len Singer, “Backpack Snack Attack has conducted multiple fundraisers each year successfully raising money for the food that goes directly to needy children in our towns.” Reservations can be made through Grappa Ristorante, 987-7373 or Len Singer at 248-6526. Checks should be made out to Backpack Snack Attack. The organization is also conducting a Fall Raffle and selling chances throughout the month. Volunteers will continue to sell raffle tickets at the dinner and then, after dessert, have the drawing. Those who purchase tickets during the month do not have to be present to win.

Historic Baird Tavern returns to its original purpose - Warwick, NY - 10/10/17

  • 1 photo
  • On Tuesday evening, October 10, the historic Baird Tavern at 103 Main Street in the Village of Warwick reopened to the public as guess what, a tavern. The owner of the building, the Warwick Historical Society, had recently signed a 20-year lease with John Barounis and Adam Powers, owners of Fetch Bar and Grill, also on Main Street, to operate three rooms in the ground floor as a Colonial style tavern. Tavern patrons can now relax and enjoy liquid refreshments and light fare at a full bar, a replica of an old time “Cage Bar,” offering 10 beers on tap along with wines and spirits and traditional grog. Seating is also available in two other rooms, including a game room, depicting that Colonial period. The Historical Society will continue to use the basement and upper floor for storing and displaying some of its collections or conducting tours and other events. The idea to lease a part of Baird Tavern was originally suggested to Powers by Executive Director Lisa Weisbrod as a means to help cover the expense of maintaining the Society’s 12 properties and numerous programs, funded solely by membership dues, private donations and fundraisers. And the suggestion wasn’t unprecedented since the Society also received some revenue from weddings held at its Old School Baptist MeetingHouse in Lewis Park. Weisbrod also pointed out that many local historical societies no longer exist because their expenses far exceeded their income. Something had to be done. . “Some were for this idea and others were on the fence,” said Powers, “ but I met with Michael Bertolini (past president and building curator) and explained our renovation plan and how we would benefit the Society. In Fetch, for example, we contribute to the Humane Society. Here, our direction will be to help the Historical Society. ” Powers praised Warwick Architect Joe Irace who not only designed the remodeling but also shepherded the project through every step of the entire Village approval process. Although the Baird Tavern is open to the public, patrons can subscribe for $100 to a Baird Tavern membership that will include an authentic engraved pewter mug and other privileges such as discounts for drinks and admission to events. In addition to the rent, a portion of that fee will also go to the Society and entitle tavern members to many of the discounts and benefits of full membership to which they are invited to upgrade. The Baird Tavern has an interesting history. In 1766, Francis Baird built a limestone residence, tavern and inn to house travelers on the King’s Highway. There were also stables for the horses, which were exchanged for those worn out from their long journey, and Cathryn Anders, president of the Historical Society, reported that an old drawing of the complex also indicates the presence of a general store. George Washington, then Commander-in-chief of the Continental Army, recorded his 1783 tavern visit in his expenses diary. His wife, Martha, also stayed at the Baird Tavern on her way to see Washington in his Newburgh headquarters in 1786. The building served as a residence until the 1980s when it became a law office. Longtime Historical Society member Lilibet Lewis McLean, reported that when it was in danger of demolition, her mother, Elizabeth Van Lear, sold a valuable painting by Eugene Delacroix to purchase the building and then donated it to the Society in 1991. For many years it was thought that the Baird Tavern was never actually a tavern and that the stone building was the family residence with a wood structure tavern, no longer remaining, to the left of the house as viewed from the Post Office. However Sue Gardner, reference and local history librarian at the Albert Wisner Public Library, has evidence that the stone building was a tavern “Like many taverns,” she said, “it appears to have gone back and forth between use mostly for the family and for business use. Historically, folks have referred to the stone building as the tavern. It had an addition or outbuilding addition on the left that was also a store and may have been used as part of the tavern at times. So the answer appears to be sometimes a residence, but most definitely used as a tavern in 1783.” Gardner also points to the fact that there was a spring-floor dance room on the second floor where militia also drilled, an unlikely feature for a residence. The tavern is open Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. to closing.

New Time Capsule now set to be opened in 2067 - arwick, NY - 10/14/17

  • 10 photos
  • On Saturday, October 14, approximately 150 people gathered in Veterans Memorial Park to witness the burying of the Sesquicentennial Time Capsule next to the Firemen’s Memorial, where the Centennial Capsule had been removed in August. That capsule, refurbished to contain an assortment of artifacts, was lowered alongside a new capsule, donated by the Warwick Valley Rotary Club, which contained the “Letters to the Future,” submitted by local residents. A third stainless steel capsule, designed and donated by retired architect David Brandt, will contain memorabilia involving all of the events held during the celebration of the Village of Warwick’s 150th anniversary of incorporation or Sesquicentennial. Those events began and will end this year with the “Apple Drop” on New Year’s Eve after which the third time capsule can join the others. When the Centennial Time Capsule was removed this year a Board of Trustees, youngsters appointed in 1967, was not only in charge of opening the capsule but also responsible for appointing a new young Board of Trustees, which will be responsible for the same tasks in 2067, the year of the Village of Warwick’s Bicentennial. After signing in, or being signed in if they were toddlers, the new trustees posed for a group photograph. Mayor Michael Newhard welcomed the crowd to the ceremony and described the purpose of each capsule. He praised the Sesquicentennial Committee and reported that preparations for these events had actually began as early as 2015. Newhard thanked the members of the Time Capsule Committee and introduced its Chairman, retired Warwick Police Department Sgt. George Arnott. And he, in turn, praised Sesquicentennial Events Coordinator Mary Collura and Village Trustee William Lindberg for their support and The Warwick Valley Dispatch and The Warwick Advertiser for their coverage of the 150th anniversary programs throughout the year. Newhard and Collura then sealed the capsule to be lowered by members of the Village of Warwick Department of Public Works (WPD). And the young members of the new Board of Trustees were given ceremonial shovels and an opportunity to help complete the burial of the new Time Capsules until they also participate in the raising and opening 50 years from now.
