  • 9 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • The weather was picture perfect on Saturday, October 12. And the eighth Children’s Book Festival, held that day on Railroad Avenue in the Village of Warwick drew huge crowds. The free admission event, presented by the Albert Wisner Public Library, the Village of Warwick and primary sponsors Glenn and Susan Dickes, featured 70 authors and illustrators of children’s books for grades Pre-K to 12. And many of the authors autographed their books. Tommy Gardner, from the award winning Uncle Brothers and recording artist and bassist Barry Wiesenfeld provided musical entertainment. And there were surprise visits by “Spiderman” and the mounted “Headless Horseman.” This year’s event raised approximately $6,500 for the Library with almost 2400 books sold in the space of five hours. Rosemary Cooper, library director, said that the funds would be used to help support upcoming programs. But she stressed that the primary purpose of the Children’s Book Festival was to encourage literacy at an early age. Cooper also praised Glenn and Susan Dickes for their generosity in funding all the expenses involved in presenting the event at no cost to the Library or the taxpayers. “The sun always shines on the Warwick Children’s Book Festival;” observed Glenn and Susan Dickes. “And this year was no different. Kudos to Lisa Laico and Judy Pederson for mounting, once again, a family friendly event promoting children’s literacy and fun”.

Kaliada Jewelry and Gifts Boutique celebrates first year anniversary - Warwick,NY - 10/4/19

  • 1 photo for sale Buy a Photo
  • WARWICK – The first year anniversary is an important milestone for any business. That’s especially true for cancer survivor Kally Padilla, founder and designer of Kaliada Jewelry, who took a leap of faith last October, Breast Cancer Month, and opened the doors to her store at 25 Main Street in the Village of Warwick. On Friday, October 4, Town of Warwick Supervisor Michael Sweeton, Mayor Michael Newhard and members of the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce joined Kally Padilla, her husband Rey, daughter Daniella and staff member Laura Catli to celebrate the shop’s first year anniversary with a ribbon cutting. After being diagnosed with cancer in 2009, she decided to step down from her corporate career to focus on getting well and to be with her family. “I always wanted to have my own business,” said Padilla, “so In 2012 I started selling jewelry from other designers online. I chose jewelry because it's a product that would help me connect with women. I wanted to share my story with the intention to help others and bring hope.” Padilla stated that her cancer experience has taught her to live with intention and to seek daily inspiration that would help her to create the life of her dreams. And that this is the message she tries to send to women through her jewelry and the meaningful products she offers. Padilla is pleased to report that Kaliada Boutique quickly became the go to place for women to find beautiful jewelry, as well as a selection of sustainable and inspirational specialty gifts; including stationery, doTerra essential oils, women accessories and gifting products to support those living with the ongoing impact of cancer. “I am very thankful for all the support from Warwick locals,” she said. “I think Kaliada Boutique could have not been in a better place and I’m honored and happy to see in such a short time the amount of repeat customers coming to the store.” For additional information visit www.kaliada.com and sign up for newsletters about in-store events, new arrivals, and giveaways.

Applefest 2019 draws lighter than usual crowds - Warwick,NY -

  • 13 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • Except for the very first Applefest, which was almost wiped out by Hurricane Hugo, and an occasional cloudy or cool day, Applefest, Warwick’s largest and most well attended event, has always enjoyed good weather The 31st celebration of Applefest on this past Sunday, October 6, enjoyed a good turnout but because it was cloudy and a little on the cool side, the crowd was estimated to be shy of the usual 30,000 or so visitors anticipated.. This year’s event played host to about 275 craft and food vendors and there was free entertainment, children’s rides, the traditional apple pie baking contest and a pie-eating contest sponsored by Noble Pies. The traditional festival has been held since 1989 to celebrate the local apple harvest. The popular festival, produced each year by the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce, is a major fundraiser and much needed proceeds from the event are used for town-wide community projects and non-profit organizations. In spite of the magnitude of the event, the largest in Orange County and one of the largest in the Country, Applefest is surprisingly cost effective. Members of non-profit organizations perform numerous tasks before and after the event. Applefest earns its keep by renting space to vendors and organizations and by sharing the amusement income with the company that provides the rides. Most of the non-profit organizations serve food or sell retail items. And for many, Applefest is the major fundraiser for the entire year. Although the day can be an inconvenience to some residents, the monies earned are used to support valuable services for everyone throughout the year. And many of these services would normally have to be paid with additional taxes or donations.

Supervisor report on development of former Mid Orange Correctional facility - Warwick,NY - 10/1/19

  • 2 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • Town of Warwick Supervisor Michael Sweeton recently reported that work to redevelop the former Mid-Orange Correctional Facility continues at an accelerated pace with five new businesses under construction, four under contract to purchase buildings or lots in addition to already established businesses on the site. In July 2011, Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office announced that the Mid-Orange Correctional Facility in Warwick was on its list of seven prisons to be shut down to save the state money. And in 2014, the State of New York approved the transfer of the property to the Warwick Valley Local Development Corporation and the Town of Warwick. From the beginning the Town Board’s objectives in acquiring the former prison were to create Warwick’s first and only business park that would produce tax revenues and provide jobs. Today businesses that are currently operating on the site include Hudson Sports, Eden Restoration, Ground Control Excavating and Trans Tech Bus Company. These businesses employ a total of approximately 50 people. And local contractors are working on site and parcels are paying taxes on property that never produced tax revenues for the Town. Currently there are four new businesses under construction- Citiva Medical, Urban Xtracts, Phyto-Farma Labs, LLC, and Drowned Lands Brewery. These businesses combined hope to employ close to 200 people. Under contract or sold are five green field sites that should start construction early in 2020. The businesses purchasing these lots range from research & development to light manufacturing. Over 100 new jobs are estimated to be created from these five lots. In addition the two lots that contain buildings on them have accepted offers and /or contracts. One will be developed as professional offices and the other is being considered as a health spa type facility. From 50 to 100 additional jobs may be created from these projects. . Since 2015 Supervisor Sweeton has been working on using some buildings as a launching pad for entrepreneurs that would start and grow businesses in the corporate park that help the town reach its objectives. He contacted the Orange County Industrial Development Agency, which had created accelerators in other parts of the County However. the only business that pursued and obtained a PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) was the Drowned lands Brewery. “Thanks to the Orange County IDA, Warwick Valley Local Development Corporation and the Town Board for all the support to make this happen,” said Sweeton. “All told the hope for the corporate park is to have 450 to 500 jobs that range from $15 per hour up to salaries typical for those who have earned a Bachelor of Science and higher college degrees as chemists, scientists, engineers and architects. We are also developing with the Orange County IDA an accelerator for start up businesses as well as job training and classroom space.”. He added that potential tax revenues will be based in part of the costs of construction which are still not finalized but will result in several million dollars received by the town when complete. Currently there are only two undeveloped parcels that are still for sale. Each could support up to a 250,000 sq. foot building. This redevelopment project is a joint effort between the Town, the Warwick Valley Local Development Corporation, the Orange County IDA, private business and the New York State Empire Development.. Areas for sale were purchased by the, the WVLDC, which thus far has successfully attracted companies to invest in Warwick like Citiva Medical, Kraftify Brewing Co. Ground Control, Eden Restoration, Trans Tech Bus Co. and Hudson Valley Sports. “ Our efforts to turn a shuttered State facility into a productive commercial business park that will pay taxes and provide jobs is rapidly coming to fruition,” said Sweeton. “This is a great example of government and the private sector working together for good of the community”

OCVFA/ WFD 150th anniversary parade - Warwick,NY - 9/28/19

  • 16 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • The weather was near perfect and of course, there was also the participation of the world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales. And on Saturday, September 28, record crowds, along the entire route, began assembling hours before the 104th Orange County Volunteer Firemen’s Association and 150th Warwick Valley Fire Department parade. Many of the downtown Warwick businesses had decorated their storefronts to welcome all the Orange County firefighters. Yesterday’s restaurant, for example, decorated and even provided curbside seating for its patrons. The parade was led by The Warwick Valley Police Dept. and the Orange County Sheriffs Office Color Guard followed by OC Volunteer Association President and Grand Marshall James Gerstner. The Parade Honorary Grand Marshall was John Orr. For approximately three hours, 56 Orange County and other volunteer fire companies from the surrounding area marched or rode from Veterans Memorial Park to South St. and then to Oakland Ave., Main St., High St., Forester Ave. and back to Memorial Park. A major attraction, the eight-horse hitch Clydesdales’ appearance in Warwick was one of hundreds made annually. The huge draft horses, which stand about six feet and weigh an average of 2,000 pounds, are now used primarily for breeding and show. The parade honored the 150th anniversary of the Warwick Valley Fire Department, which goes back to 1869 when the Excelsior Fire Engine Co. No 1 was organized in the Village of Warwick. Three years earlier, by the way, the Florida Fire Department formed. The Goodwill Hook and Ladder Company on Forester Avenue was established in 1890.and its former firehouse was what is now Village Hall. The Raymond Hose Co. 2, formerly located on Howe Street, was formed in 1896. The most recent addition was Engine Company No. 3 on South Street Extension, which was established in 1967. And along the way there were also other volunteer fire companies formed in Greenwood Lake, Pine Island and Amity.
