The Warwick Valley Community Center is sponsoring an Olde Time Family Fourth celebration on Tues., Jul. 4 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The day will be filled with fun for everyone, including a bicycle parade from Railroad Green, an old fashioned BBQ, music by E’lissa Jones, patriotic music, and a reading of the Declaration of Independence. The evening festivities will culminate with an old fashioned square dance. This is a great chance to celebrate our great Nation and support a great organization like the Warwick Valley Community Center.
