I would ask you to take a tour of the Town’s newly revamped website by visiting www.townofwarwick.org. Thanks to Mark and Pat Damia of Walling Road Technologies who, at a discounted rate, have transformed this platform so that it is now much more compatible with all mobile devices and also in compliance with ADA regulations. I would ask you also to view the “Warwick on Video” section that was produced by the students at Warwick Valley High School under the direction of teacher Dan Cecconie. These amazing students created four distinct vignettes of our beautiful Town and its Villages which will serve to give those who might visit a taste of all they can expect. We are so blessed to have such talented young people and an education system that is second to none! Please visit www.townofwarwick.org and see for yourself.

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. 27 (Rain Date: Wed., Aug. 28). 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 hot dogs for lunch and then 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 the Town Park on Union Corners Road. 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 stopping by the Supervisor’s Office in the Warwick Town Hall, Mon. through Fri., between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. 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.
