The Village’s annual planting of flowers took place this past weekend. Hundreds of flowers were planted in dozens of hanging baskets and stand-alone planter boxes. Our thanks go out to Ed English for coordinating the design of this year’s floral arrangements and thank you to Carol Flood, Ed Bilello and the kids and parents of our local Girl Scout Troop for donating their Saturday morning for the planting.
Events This Past Weekend
As the Hoboken International Film Festival continues to run in Greenwood Lake, I would like to reflect on the weekend’s events. The festival kicked off last Friday at the Thomas Morahan Waterfront Park. Hundreds of filmmakers, producers, actors and other celebrities packed the tent at the park for the opening night’s events.
Some of the celebrities included former Governor Jesse Ventura (Minnesota), Judie Aronson (90210, Weird Science) and my favorite star, Martin Kove (Karate Kid, Rambo, Wyatt Earp) who is starring in the number one most streamed series Kobra Kai.
On Saturday night, the Village partnered with the Chamber of Commerce who hosted a fantastic music festival, which drew crowds all day to attend at the Waterfront Park festivities.
The Film Festival continues to Thurs., May 23 at the Waterfront Park, G.L. Elks Lodge, and also a viewing location at the Cove Castle. The awards ceremony will be held at the beach on Thurs., May 23 and will include stars such as Danny Aiello, Jason London and Gilbert Gottfried.
If you would like a chance at getting a pair of free tickets to the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line of “HIFF.”
