Children that reside in the Village of Warwick are invited to participate in a contest to be the Village’s first Kid Mayor in celebration of Warwick’s Sesquicentennial year. Children in kindergarten through the fourth grade are invited to write an essay entitled, “What Would I Do If I Were Mayor?”
The winner of the contest will have a special spot in the parade on Main St. at 2 p.m. on Sat., Apr. 15, which is Founder’s Day. Also at the event there will be a reenactment of the signing of the Village charter that took place 150 years ago on Apr. 15, 1867.
The reenactment will be held after the parade on the Railroad Green where the Kid Mayor will also read his/her essay. The essay should be submitted to: Village Hall, 77 Main St., Warwick NY 10990 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Mon., Apr. 10.
