  • 6 photos
  • On Friday, April 30, first grade children, Principal, Bill Biniaris and teachers from Park Avenue Elementary School gathered in the Hallowed Ground park, home to the original Baptist Meeting House and burial grounds adjacent to Galloway Road and Forester Avenue. They were there to celebrate Arbor Day and the planting of four trees including an Ivory Silk, a Lilac and two Tulip tress. Guest speaker Patricia Reinhardt, chair of the Arbor Day Committee, a former schoolteacher and member of the Warwick Valley Gardeners, spoke about the origins of the celebration and how the idea, which quickly spread throughout the country, was first observed in Nebraska in 1872. She told the children that the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago but the second best time is now and later, read her poem, “Why not hug a tree today.” Praising the members of the DPW and the Shade Tree Commission for keeping the Village beautiful, Reinhardt said, “Look how lucky we are to live in Warwick?” She then asked the children to name some benefits that we receive from trees. The variety of all correct answers included fresh air, a home for birds and animals, paper, houses, beauty and shade. Mayor Michael Newhard introduced other officials present and reported that for the 37th consecutive year Warwick had been named a "Tree City, USA." The designation is awarded by the National Arbor Day Foundation. According to the National Garden Bureau, designation as a Tree City, USA is an asset to any town or village. So are a vital shade tree commission, an inventory of trees, a tree planting and replacement policy and a preservation program. The Village of Warwick qualifies in all areas. Village Shade Tree Commissioner Rob Scheuermann welcomed the school children and explained the virtues of the new trees. Mayor Newhard invited all the children to line up and take turns shoveling some soil to help plant the new trees. And finally they lined up as Craig Wadeson from Wadeson's Home Center, handed out evergreens donated by his company.

Operation Clean Sweep returns for 2021 - Warwick,NY - 4/24/21

  • 3 photos
  • It appears that some of Warwick’s traditional outdoor events, which were canceled last year due to COVID-19, are coming back. Last weekend Michael Johndrow, executive director of the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce, was pleased to announce the successful conclusion of another “Operation Clean Sweep,” the annual roadside cleanup sponsored by the Chamber. This year’s event, like the one in 2019, was again changed from a weekend to a weeklong event that ran from April 17, to Sunday, April 25. On Saturday, April 24, volunteers were invited to stop by the table near the Chamber’s South Street Caboose office to pick up free rubber gloves, garbage bags and safety vests for those planning to pick-up trash on busy roads. Each year various groups, clubs and individuals take part by pre-registering their routes in order to ensure garbage pickup by the Department of Public Works on the following Monday and Tuesday. And each year the County also waves the landfill fee. However, there are numerous others who participate in the Town wide event and many people just volunteer on their own without registering. In addition to the roadside clean up, there were several other scheduled programs that day. . The Warwick Lions Club, for example, provided a shredding truck, at its own expense, for the benefit of local residents. The annual “pill drop” organized by the Warwick Valley Coalition in cooperation with the Warwick Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) collected approximately 150 pounds of unused prescription and over the counter medications. This year’s Operation Clean Sweep, which originated in 1990, was again coordinated by the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce with the aid of Warwick High School student Elizabeth Verboys, a member of Girl Scout CadetTroop733.

Warwick Little League opening day - Warwick,NY - 4/17/21

  • 6 photos
  • Play ball! On Saturday, April 17, Warwick Little League officially held opening day for the 2021 baseball season at Veterans Memorial Park. The annual Little League opening day traditionally begins with a parade led by a color guard and local officials heading down Main Street and then to the ball fields for ceremonies including throwing out the first ball. However, as a result of the pandemic and COVID-19 restrictions, those ceremonies were canceled both last year and this past Saturday. But the games were scheduled as usual. Last year they were postponed but held with everyone wearing masks, during July, August and September. But for the 2021 season, the games began on time. Over 390 young players have signed up for 31 teams, each with its own manager and two to three coaches. In preparation for the season, there were field improvements along with a fresh coat of paint for the concession stand. In 2020 everyone wore masks at all times. But this year that only applies to the managers, coaches and volunteers. The players are excused from that rule while on the field but must wear their masks when they are in the dugout. During opening day the League raffled off two fun baskets and sponsored a non-perishable food donation for the Warwick Ecumenical Food Pantry. The team that donated the most food would win an ice cream party at the concession. Although the traditional open day ceremonies were canceled, the League is considering a ceremony to be held in June, depending on restrictions at that time.

  • 1 photo
  • The Green Team New York Realty has always attracted high-integrity agents and provided them with cutting edge technology and support. And recently Principal Broker/Owner Geoff Green, and agents of the Green Team celebrated the firm’s annual awards ceremony. Among those honored at that time was “Green Team New York Realty” Citizen of the Year” winner Carol Buchanan, who was offered an opportunity to name her favorite non-profit organization to share a $500 donation from the firm. Buchanan choose two; The Warwick Valley Humane Society and the Warwick Area Migrant Committee. . “I'm honored to have received this award and I thank Geoff Green for his generous donation to these organizations,” said Buchanan. “It's always my pleasure to give back to the Warwick community that has been so good to me and my family. I've always admired the work and dedication of Suzyn Baron for the Humane Society as well as Kathy Brieger for her generous support and wonderful programs for the children of migrant workers. Thank you both.” The Migrant Committee plans to use the funds to support its Safety Backpack project. “The bright orange bags will be given to 200 farmworkers who walk or ride their bikes to work,” said Brieger. “The bags are packed with safety related items like safety goggles and hand sanitizer.” The intention of the safety backpacks are to allow drivers to see farm workers as they walk or ride their bikes to work and the date for distribution is April 17. “The Warwick Valley Humane Society is so honored to receive this donation from Carol for our Building Fund towards a new shelter facility,” said Barron. “On behalf of our homeless pets, we thank her for her generosity in sharing her award of Citizen of the Year with our organization. The current shelter facility is not up to today's standards in animal sheltering. The new facility will offer a more spacious, healthier, safer and well ventilated building for the animals, staff and visitors. Thanks Carol, for helping us build a better safe haven for our community's unwanted, abandoned, and neglected animals.”

Sacrament of Confirmation at St. Stephen’s - Warwick,NY - 2/27/2021

  • 4 photos
  • On Friday and Saturday, February 26 - 27, approximately 70 candidates, divided into smaller groups at three services, received the Sacrament of Confirmation at the Church of St. Stephen, the First Martyr. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, each service was private and only candidates, their sponsors and parents could attend. Other relatives could receive a link for each service and watch it via live stream. And as witnessed by those present or viewing each service at home, Bishop Gerardo J. Colacicco, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of New York, administered the Sacrament to the young students who had completed a two-year course of study beginning in Grade-7. In the Catholic faith, Confirmation is a Sacrament by which persons already baptized receive the Holy Spirit in order to make them stronger and more perfect Christians, as once granted to the apostles on the day of Pentecost. During the service Rev. Jack Arlotta, pastor of St. Stephen’s, presented the candidates, introducing each one by name. Before administering the Sacrament, Bishop Colacicco told the candidates that love involves sacrifice. He related a story about how much love and devotion, under difficult circumstances, that he observed between his uncle and aunt and how that had influenced his own call to the priesthood. “I was moved by their love and piety,” he said. “The gift of the Holy Spirit, which you are about to receive is a powerful gift of love.” During the rite of Confirmation the entire group renewed their baptismal promises by responding, “I do.” Then each candidate, accompanied by his or her sponsor, came forward to be anointed and confirmed one by one by the Bishop. Following the Mass, Father Arlotta, thanked everyone involved in this year’s Confirmation for all that had to be accomplished, including the study requirements, during these difficult times. Later, Bishop Colacicco graciously met with parents and candidates and posed for photographs.

Celebration of MLK Day held virtually - Warwick,NY - 1/18/21

  • 4 photos
  • Normally at this time of year, members of the Warwick Union African Methodist Episcopal Church (UAME) and guests from throughout the Warwick community would celebrate Martin Luther King Day in their church at 98 McEwen Street. And in previous years the church building would often be filled to capacity as people gathered to honor the memory of Dr. King, the world famous civil rights leader and Nobel Peace Prizewinner who was assassinated in 1968. However, this year we are still in the midst of a COVID-19 pandemic and a crowded church would not be permissible or prudent. And so, like many other recent celebrations, the UAME Church opted to host a virtual celebration on Monday, January 18. The service began with music video of the song, “Ain’t gonna let nobody” performed by the Howard Gospel Choir followed by the traditional recitation of the Call to Justice and Community. Viewers were then shown another music video, “Lift every Voice and Sing,” by Wintley Phipps. Rev. Jennifer Morrow, pastor of Warwick’s United Methodist Church, gave the invocation. And following scripture readings by Denise Smith, Channabel Morris Lathem, who had emailed the invitations with the link and password, welcomed everyone including honored guests who each had an opportunity to offer brief remarks on the significance of the holiday. Guest speakers included Town of Warwick Supervisor Michael Sweeton, Mayor Michael Newhard, Justices Peter Barlett and Nancy De Angelo, Doug Stage and Cedric Glasper. The presentation also included a musical video tribute to Martin Luther King and the Green Levites performance of the Battle Hymn of the Republic. The preacher this year was Union AME Pastor Rev. Dr. Ann Marie Bentsi-Addison Posey. The service concluded with a video presentation and singing of, “We Shall Overcome.”
