The following column, written by Village of Greenwood Mayor Jesse Dwyer, has been published in the Apr. 26 issue of the Warwick Valley Dispatch:
I am happy to announce that local residents will be getting a major discount to the Hoboken Film Festival! Tickets to individual movies are selling for $11 each. The opening night gala and awards reception are both selling for $99. All access passes are selling for $295. If you are a Village resident, your price is cut in half! Individual movies will cost you $6, the opening gala and awards are $50 each, and all access passes are $150. In order to qualify for these prices you must purchase your ticket at a ticket sales booth during the festival and NOT online.
Local organizations will each receive two all access passes to the Film Festival. These passes may be used by local, non-profit organizations; however, they choose (within the law). You may give them to your volunteers of the year, raffle them, sell them, or whatever you’d like. We already have an extensive list of local organizations, but if you have not yet been contacted by either myself or Trustee Katheleen Holder, please email me at email@example.com to pick up your passes. These passes give the holder unrestricted access to all festival events and movies at both the beach location as well as the Elks secondary location.
GWL Coalition Hosts Hidden Mischief Event
On Tues., May 2 the GWL Coalition, in partnership with the Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Council of Orange County, Mid-Hudson Prevention Resource Center and National Guard Counter-Drug Task Force will host a “Hidden Mischief” presentation. During this presentation, participants will learn more about what to look for inside the drug culture and diversion methods if you suspect your family member or friend may be using drugs. We will also have “Fatal Vision Goggles” to simulate what impaired vision may look like after alcohol and participants can go through an obstacle course to truly feel what impaired driving may be like. The presentation will also highlight the use of Narcan as a lifesaving tool for overdose victims. Please join the GWL Community Coalition as we work together in fighting drug and alcohol abuse within our community.
