When Irish Eyes Are Smiling!

March is always the season of variable weather as winter reluctantly lets go of its tight hold.  This Tuesday’s Nor’easter will hopefully be the last licks.  Nonetheless life goes on in our busy Village.  We just ended a very successful Restaurant Week.  Thank you to all the participants.  The Second Sunday Conversation, “Immigrants, All:   Our Journey Home to Warwick” at the Albert Wisner Library was timely; participants from over ten different nationalities spoke about their family’s journey to America and to Warwick.  Each story was fascinating and spoke of the diversity of us as a country and a community.

This Friday, March 17th we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  On this day no matter where you’re from we are all Irish!  Come join us for a very special concert of the classic Celtic rock band Emish who will be playing at 6 p.m. at Park Avenue School GymBring your dancing shoes!!  This is a partnership between the Village’s Concert Series and the Sesquicentennial Committee.  After the concert stay in the Village and visit a restaurant post storm, pre-Spring and St. Patty’s Day!!

Spring begins Monday, March 20th and Tuesday March 21st is a Village Election.  Two candidates for Village Justice are on the ballot.  I urge all registered citizens to exercise their most important right as an American.  Polls open at 8 a.m. and close at 9 p.m.   Voting takes place at the Goodwill Hook & Ladder, 25 Church Street Extension.

The next Village Board meeting is Monday, March 20th at 7:30 p.m. in Village Hall.

 

 

 

 

The Village is defined by its remarkable Historic District and vibrant business center. The walkable proximity to neighborhoods, parks, downtown and social events offer an experience that can only be found in Village life.
