Story by Lourice Angie
The Village of Warwick was the scene of a colorful and festive display of Hispanic pride and heritage on Sun., Sept. 18. Town and Village officials, members of the Warwick Reformed Church Hispanic Ministry and members of the local Hispanic community assembled at the Warwick Reformed Church to begin the celebration with a parade in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month. The parade proceeded down Main St. and ended at the Railroad Green.
Festivities at the Green included music, dance, raffles and many beautifully decorated. The show of pride and support was tremendous this year. It could be felt throughout the crowd and seen on the faces of everyone who attended.
This year’s celebration put a spotlight on the women who contribute their time, hard work and support to the people of the community and church. They were recognized and commended for their efforts and each awarded medals by Pastor Michael Otte of the Warwick Reformed Church, along with other church members.
