Washingtonville Greets Fall With Full Calendar of Activities

Community Yard Sale Held

CAPTION 1: The second annual Washingtonville Community Yard Sale, organized by Jessica Wittman and Danielle Marie, was held on Oct. 5 at Vern Allen Park. Some residents lightened up their load, while other residents made bargain purchases as people bustled around the stalls from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on a beautiful sunny day. Beneficiaries of the yard sale included local Washingtonville cat rescue and rehab O.C. Safe Cats and the Blooming Grove Humane Society. Here, ninth grader Mackenzie Jurain interacted with a customer. (Photo by Eugenia Moskowitz)

Party Like It’s 1979: Local Pizzeria Celebrates 40 Years

CAPTION 2: Washingtonville’s F&J Pizzeria celebrated its 40th anniversary by offering customers .40 cent slices and $4.00 pizzas during its festival hours on Oct. 5 while children played in the bounce house (pictured here) and enjoyed face painting and a magician. The street was closed off to traffic and lines went around the corner as residents said it was enjoyable to remember their childhoods where two quarters got you a slice. (Photo by Eugenia Moskowitz)

Scarecrows Placed Around Village of Washingtonville

CAPTION 3: At the same time, Girl Scout Troop 294 was busy helping Leanne Bucco and the Washingtonville Beautification Committee — pictured here with troop leader Laurisa Sampson — place the scores of scarecrows local businesses, civic groups, and individuals created over the past two weeks around the village. Pumpkins, hay bales, and corn stalks with ribbons now also adorn the lampposts around the village center and at Memorial Park on Ahern Blvd. while the scarecrows stand awaiting the third annual Witchingtonville, which will take place on Oct. 19 at Vern Allen Park. This yearly and hugely popular event promises a trunk or treat (with a sensory-friendly opening hour), climbing rock wall, bungee trampoline, escape room, tunnel slide, witches’ “broom dance,” food, vendors, and the infamous black-caped Headless Horseman, who will be silently galloping around for the entire time. Washingtonville Community Events Committee organizers are busy prepping for this event, and any volunteers for the day itself can contact the committee via its social media pages, or by inquiring at Village Hall.
