Once again, Warwick excels in the field of nurturing Eagle Scouts. Congratulations to Aidan O’Connor, Stuart Davidson, Myles Ottens, and Kevin McDermott from Troop #45, as well as Justin Endrikat and Kyle Bower from Troop #477. These young men have contributed much to bettering our community and inspire all of us to believe in the bright future for the leadership of our Nation.
Reverend Michael Otte, the pastor of the Dutch Reformed Church here in Warwick, will be retiring shortly and leaving our community. Reverend Otte has made tremendous progress, not only tending to the spiritual needs of our Town but also to tackling issues, such as our immigrant community and hunger issues. We will miss Reverend Otte but wish him well on a well-deserved retirement!
