Here we are in the fifth month of the Sesquicentennial Year. Looking through the calendar of past events and events still to come, I’ve realized, if you’ve been following along with us that you have:
-Learned about the historic architecture (Red Umbrella Tour)
-Learned about our history in education, our relationship with farming, Warwick as a spiritual place, and where we’ve all come from (Second Sunday Conversations)
-You have welcomed in 2017, celebrated Valentine’s Day, Black History Month, and St. Patrick’s Day
-You have unloaded all the things you don’t need (Too Good to Toss)
-You’ve taken in some art depicting Village life created, collected and curated by locals
(Warwick Through Time)
-This weekend, you’ll have the opportunity to get rid of old electronics, piles of paper, and all those old prescriptions in your medicine cabinet (Warwick Clean Sweep)
-You’ll have the opportunity to clean the sides of the roads and the banks of the creek
(Waywayanda Creek Cleanup, Sustainable Warwick)
Some up-coming events focus on the spiritual side. On Sunday, May 7 at 5pm, the ecumenical council is hosting a spiritual service at the Old School Baptist Meeting House. It will be an inter-faith service to gives thanks for the 150th year of the Village of Warwick.
And the Warwick Valley Choral will hold its annual Spring Concert on Sunday, May 21 at the Warwick Reformed Church. They are slated to sing an amazing assortment of songs by great American composers, including my favorite, “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
So, when August rolls around, we are all going to be SO CHILL. We’ll all be in the best mind set to cut loose and have FUN and really just enjoy being with each other.
We will know where we’ve been, where we are, where we’ve all come from, and where we want to go moving forward.
And yes, we planned it that way!
