  • Warwick Valley Gardeners decorate Railroad Green for Home for the Holidays WARWICK – Once again members of the Warwick Valley Gardeners decorated Railroad Green and the planter to kick off the holiday season. And on Friday evening, November 16, local residents braved cold weather and the aftermath of the first snow storm of the season to witness the annual lighting event. The ceremony began with traditional Christmas carols like Jingle Bells and Silent Night sung by members of the Meistersingers and Treble Choir. This year, the members of the Warwick Valley Gardeners selected Woodland Holiday as the theme for its Winter Project. . Chair of this year’s event was Laurie Unick. Nancy Arthur, president of the Warwick Valley Gardeners, welcomed everyone and thanked all who contributed such as Corwin Florist and Greenhouses. Cathy Garofalo served as emcee for the ceremony and she invited Mayor Michael Newhard to say a few words. He pointed out that this was the first in a series of events for the holiday season including Home for the Holidays, Thanksgiving, the annual Christmas Tree lighting, the Menorah Lighting, Santa’s visits and Christmas. Newhard also thanked the Warwick Valley Gardeners for this and all the other projects they care for throughout the year. “Everywhere I go,” he said, “I see examples of how much they contribute to the beauty of our community. They do a magnificent job.” During the ceremony and after the countdown and lighting, members of the Club handed out candy canes to everyone. Established in 1992, the Warwick Valley Gardeners Club is a member the Federated Garden Clubs of New York State, Inc. and the National Council of State Garden Clubs.

Warwick’s Veterans Day parade and ceremony - Warwick,NY - 11/11/18

  • 9 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • It was a departure from the traditional Veterans Day ceremonies in Warwick’s Veterans Memorial Park. This year, what was usually a ceremony at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the official time of the World War I Armistice, began on Sunday, November 11, at 10 a.m. with a parade down Main Street to ceremonies at Veterans Memorial Park, followed by food and refreshments for everyone in Lewis Park. The reason for the change was that this was a special Veterans Day. It was the 100th anniversary of the Armistice. One hundred years ago, in 1918, after a long and bloody struggle, the Armistice was signed ending the hostilities. But what was celebrated each year as “Armistice Day” was renamed “Veterans Day” in 1954. In spite of an unseasonably cold day, members of the Boy and Girl Scouts, their junior components, scout leaders and parents along with about 100 local citizens braved the cold temperature to honor our veterans. Members of the Warwick Police Department, the Warwick Fire Department and the Volunteer Ambulance Corps also participated with veteran members of VFW Post 4662 and American Legion Post 214. VFW Post 4662 Commander Dan Burger led the parade and then opened the official ceremony with the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem sung by The Meistersingers. He also reminded everyone that this was also considered the 50th anniversary of the Viet Nam War. “For some of the veterans of that war who may not have received a warm welcome home at that time,” he said, “welcome! And let’s give them a round of applause.” After an invocation by VFW Chaplain Dan Grenier, Burger introduced guest speakers including Warwick Town Supervisor Michael Sweeton, Mayor Michael Newhard and American Legion Post 214 past Commander Walt Parkinson. He spoke about the history of World War I and then read the well known poem, In Flanders Field, by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. VFW Chaplain Grenier then offered a prayer for all our veterans. He concluded with, “Kneel for your God, stand for your Flag.”

  • Believe it or not it’s already that time of year and everyone is invited to come on down. The kick-off for the annual celebration of Home for the Holidays is Sunday, November 18 in the Village of Warwick. From 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. visitors will find most downtown shops decorated for the season and offering “open house” events with free refreshments and special offers. And to get everyone in the holiday spirit, there will be various fun events throughout the downtown area including music and song. The Warwick Valley Chorale will again be strolling the streets singing traditional Christmas carols. There will also be free horse and buggy rides traveling through the Village. And the traditional Angel Tree, encouraging gifts for the needy, will be located on Main St. between Akin’s Drug Store and Newhard’s Gift Shop. Home for the Holidays, which traditionally begins just before Thanksgiving and ends after Christmas, is an annual celebration designed to present downtown Warwick as a fun and convenient place to do all your holiday shopping. And the Warwick merchants want everyone to know that they offer convenience, quality merchandise, special sales, friendly personalized service including gift-wrapping and, in most cases a “wish” list to make things easier for gift givers. Throughout the celebration other local organizations will be joining in to play music, sell refreshments, and bring holiday cheer to downtown Warwick. Weather permitting there will be free horse and buggy rides every weekend in December from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. departing from just outside Railroad Green.

Halloween Parade draws record crowds - Warwick,NY - 10/31/18

  • 16 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • On Wednesday evening, October 31, unseasonable temperatures in the mid 60s and sunny skies contributed to what was likely the largest crowd to date participating in the annual Halloween Parade. The popular event is sponsored by the Warwick Lions Club and the Village of Warwick Recreation Department. Once again this year's large crowd of what may have been more than 1200 ghosts, goblins, witches and an assortment of movie, cartoon and even more creative characters, resembled the crowds at Applefest, Warwick's largest celebration. At 4:30 p.m. the marchers assembled on Church Street and then headed down Main Street to Railroad Avenue for a costume contest and Halloween treats. It took approximately 25 minutes for everyone in the parade to reach that destination. At Railroad Green members of the Warwick Volunteer Fire Department were on hand to pass out glow in the dark fire helmets to all the youngsters. And there was a surprise visit by the “Headless Horseman,” courtesy of Leora Dillon in costume atop her horse Eagle. The judges this year were Town of Warwick Supervisor Michael Sweeton, Mayor Michael Newhard and Pam Starer, president of the Warwick Lions. In previous years the annual Halloween Parade had been sponsored on alternate years by Warwick's American Legion Post 214 and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4662. Five years ago, however, the Village of Warwick and Warwick Lions Club, became sponsors of the event and the Costume Contest. This year’s Costume Contest included categories such as most original, scariest, cutest and most Warwick pride. Age groups ranged from under five years old to, adult and family ensemble.
