The Town of Warwick Shade Tree Commission recently sponsored their annual Arbor Day poster contest for fifth grade students at the Warwick Middle School. Patti O’Connor, a fifth grade teacher at the school, supervised the contest and entries were judged by staff at the school. The theme this year was “Trees for Bees” and the winning poster, which was chosen to be sent to the regional competition at NYSDEC regional headquarters in New Paltz, NY, was created by Ashley Fitzgerald.
The Commission held an artists reception on Tues., Apr. 10 at the Warwick Town Hall in honor of all the students who participated. The posters will be on display in the Town Hall, located at 132 Kings Hwy. in Warwick NY, through the month of April.
