Fall is definitely in the air. Nights are cooler, green of the landscape is giving way to the gold and purple dotting our fields, our farmers are rapidly bringing in the harvest, and the apples are showing good color. COVID-19 is still with us, so fall will be different this year. Our orchards have adapted to make visits safe for your enjoyment, and our schools have sound plans to keep our kids safe, as they get the great education that is so important. We need to continue to do our part by wearing our masks when we can’t stay more than six feet from others, wash our hands more frequently and avoid large gatherings, which seem to be the greatest risk for spreading the virus. Let’s eliminate this thing once and for all. It is also important to get your flu shot, as that is still a risk for so many of our community.
As the days shorten, dusk gets to us sooner, and deer are on the move. Please stay alert, slow down, and watch for sudden movement as you travel our roads. School opening will also bring school buses and children walking on our roads. Please slow down, and leave extra time for your travels.
The Warwick Historical Society is a not for profit that owns, operates and maintains the many historical buildings that our Town has become famous for. Most recently they hosted the Village concert series at the Old School Baptist Meeting House. They are not funded by the governments of the Town or Village and rely on membership, as well as fundraising, throughout the year. Please check out their website www.whsny.org, and consider supporting this vital organization.
