A Rose by Any Other Name!

It’s only fitting that the students of Park Avenue and Sanfordville Schools selected a rose as the Village flower especially this week that includes Valentine’s Day!

With the help of the Warwick Lions and Rotary, the Park Avenue gym will be transformed into a nostalgic Valentine Dance including the Big Band Sound of the New York Swing Exchange!

This is all part of the four seasons of events that the Sesquicentennial Committee has planned.  The underlying themes are inclusivity, history and fun.  Some of the other activities for February are:

Friday, February 17th at 7 p.m. – Confabulation:  The Notion of a Small Town.  This is an ongoing storytelling project organized by Creative Director, Paul Ellis at the A.W. Buckbee Center – 2 Colonial Avenue.

Friday, February 24th at 7 p.m. – Music at the Union:  An evening of music with E’lissa Jones including the Hudson Valley Ebony Strings.  This is a free event sponsored by the UAME Church and the Warwick Sesquicentennial Committee to celebrate Black History Month – The concert will be at the UAME Church, 98 McEwen Street.

Sunday, February 26th at 2 p.m. the Warwick Historical Society presents, “Centering Black Women:  Race in the Women Suffrage Movement.  The program is in honor of Black History Month and will be held at the Historic UAME Church at 9 Forester Avenue.  For info, call 986-3236, extension 101.
