Come one – Come all! Everybody come to Cornwall this coming Sunday, September 23, for the Annual Fall Festival. Stroll up & down Main Street in Cornwall and see what there is to see. I hear there are items for all ages. This is a rain or shine event. The festive experience begins at 10 a.m. and continues till 5 p.m. Enjoy your day!
STORM KING ENGINE CO. #2, The LADIES AUXILIARY, announce their HARVEST CRAFT FAIR! Next Saturday, September 29, 9 a.m. till 3 p.m. Please mark your calendar. The Craft Fair takes place in the Storm King Engine Company on Hudson Street. You’ll find gift-giving ideas here, waiting for you to take home. Remember – Christmas is coming!
Were you there?! Weir’s Ice Cream, Rt. 94, closed for the season on Monday, September 10th. All proceeds from that day designated to be donated to animal charity organizations. Also accepted on site were any donations of pet food and cleaning supplies. As I am want to say – “Anything for the animals.” This is a wonderful annual event. By the by, I can’t help but wish Weirs would remain open till October. But there I go – appreciating their ice cream treats!
Birthday cakes all around for these merry September celebrants; GARY REGAN (the go-to man for all your cocktail needs & mixed drinks education); CECY CHERCO (Peru’s loss is our gain); JUAN CARLOS MOLINA (master carpenter); JODI FUNCK ANDREWS (fine artist); STEVE KESSLER (music man); BRETT KRUMPHOLC (helping the public in Home Depot), DEBBIE MORABITO (holding court at The Rock Wall); GLEN MCAKEN (master electrician/vocalist/actor); PETER PAPAGEORGANTIS (disc jockey/keeps the public jumpin’); MARGARET SMALL (master pianist); TERRANCE MURPHY (thank you for safe elevator rides); JAMES PARTINGTON (what are you cooking up today?); DANIELLE DESIDERIO; KATIE RING; and STEVE THOMAS (a former owner/operator of The Hudson Street Café when it really was on Hudson Street. Ste gave the space an especially colorful makeover). Cheers, everybody!
This Saturday, September 22, you can enjoy the Annual Orange County Volunteer Fireman’s Parade. As I understand it, 40 departments and bands will march. Music, light refreshments, and awards. 2-5 p.m. The Host location this year: Thomas P. Morahan Waterfront Park, Greenwood Lake.
Heads-up, auto drivers. As I understand it, The Town of New Windsor Police Department plans to increase patrol presence in the 5 Corners area of Vails Gate starting September 24, 2018. The 5 Corners area of Vails Gate is where State Route 32, Route 300 and Route 94 all converge into one intersection. There has been numerous accidents and near misses in that area, many of which were caused by improper lane usage, illegal passing in the turning lanes and avoiding the traffic control devices by cutting though the area parking lots.
