On behalf of the Greenwood Lake Village Board, I would like to congratulate the Greenwood Lake Fire Department for hosting a wonderful parade in downtown Greenwood Lake. This past weekend, Greenwood Lake was the host of the Orange County Volunteer Firemen’s Association annual parade. G.L. was the parade host because we have the honor of having the outgoing OCVFA President, John Rader, as a member of our local department.
The parade was an absolute success on many levels. Thousands were brought to our beautiful Village and speaking as a parent of two children, the excitement level for residents was tremendous. I think everyone had a great time and incidents were kept to a minimum through the hard work and planning of the parade committee, our Greenwood Lake Police Department and the dedicated volunteers of the Greenwood Lake Fire Department.
