On Mon., May 28, we honor those who perished in the service of our Nation’s Armed Forces. In conflicts from the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, both World Wars, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf Wars and the War on terror, Warwick residents have always answered the call. Many of these brave Americans have paid the ultimate price laying down their precious lives for those they love, their comrades and this great Country, which was founded on the principles of liberty and justice for all. Please take a few moments to pray for those we have lost, or perhaps come out to one of the parades. Pine Island remembrance will start with a church service at 8 a.m., followed by a march to the cemetery at 9 a.m. In the Village of Warwick, the parade starts at 11 a.m. Both the Villages of Greenwood Lake and Florida will hold their services at 2 p.m. For more details call 986-1120, ext. 240.
It’s beach season again. The Town Beach, located at the end of Windermere Ave. in the Village of Greenwood Lake will be open weekends, starting Sat., May 26 for your enjoyment. The beach, open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., is staffed by certified lifeguards and provides picnic areas, as well as restroom and shower facilities.
