The Warwick Valley VFW Post #4662 has moved to a new location. Its previous location at 10 Colonial Ave. in the Village of Warwick was closed on May 15 and a new location is being prepared for us. The new location is at 4 Overlook Dr. in the building complex across from the Park Ave Elementary School on Rte. 17A. Further announcements will be made upon the completion and occupancy of our new facility. In the interim, our message service is always available for veterans who need their issues addressed. We can be reached at 988-8387. A VFW Post officer will respond to all calls.
In anticipation of the move from 10 Colonial Ave., a call was made to the Wadeson Home Center on Forester Ave. in order to arrange for a U-Haul truck. After a brief discussion of our requirements, owner Craig Wadeson volunteered his time and his brand new trailer for our use! On the day of the move Mr. Wadeson arrived with his trailer and two employees who assisted us in loading the Post’s belongings onto the trailer and delivering them to our new location for unloading! Mr. Wadeson went the extra mile and then some for our Post and we are forever grateful.
When a call was made to suggest a donation for his efforts, Mr. Wadeson’s response was, “I think you boys have already made enough ‘donations’ to the rest of us.”
It also must be noted that Craig answered the call for us when we needed a truck and driver for the Memorial Day Parade. The wagon, donated by the Pennings Farm, was used for veterans who could not march and Craig, once again, donated his time and pickup truck to drive the wagon for the parade.
It is this spirit of giving back to the community and to veterans which makes our great Village and Town of Warwick a special place to live. A sincere Thank You goes out to Wadeson’s for their support and assistance.
