Last chance for senior citizens to get 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 11:00 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 Town is blessed with numerous parks, trails and places to enjoy the outdoors. There is, however, only one lake where public swimming is permitted with trained lifeguards for the safety of those swimming, and that is our Town Beach on Greenwood Lake at the Waterfront Park. Swimming is prohibited at all other Town-owned properties, such as Cascade and Wickham Lake. This is posted on signs in the parks and is prohibited for safety reasons. We hope you will respect the law and hopefully prevent any possibility for a tragic accident.
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, 132 Kings Hwy., Warwick.
