We are all aware that when we see flashing red lights we pull over as quickly and safely as we can, but many of us don’t seem to recognize the need to do the same for flashing blue or green lights. These are the symbols of our volunteer firefighters and ambulance responders who are answering the call for what are most often life threatening situations. Please stay alert when driving and move quickly to the side, so they can respond to emergencies as fast as possible. You never know when they may be responding to a call from someone you love.
It is that time again for senior citizens in our Town to get their tickets to our annual Senior BBQ to be held this year on Tues., Aug. 22. This event is FREE to any senior citizen residing in the Town of Warwick, thanks to the generous donations of so many community service organizations, our Veterans’ groups, the Warwick Valley Rotary and the support of many volunteers. Our seniors will be served lunch and a complete chicken dinner prepared by local chef, Mike Coleman, of Mike’s Custom BBQ. A fun-filled day kicks off at 11 a.m. at Union Corners Park. This event is free to any senior citizen in our Town, but you do need a ticket which can be obtained through one of our seven senior citizen organizations or by calling my office at 986-1120, ext. 241. Mark your calendars, and don’t miss this opportunity to have your community say thanks for all you have done to make this a great place to live.
The next regular meeting of the Town Board will be held on Thurs., Aug. 17 at 7:30 p.m. in the Warwick Town Hall, located at 132 Kings Hwy. in Warwick.
