Spring came in this past weekend like a youngster on a pogo stick! The Village looked a bit like a college campus on the first nice day of weather. Folks were everywhere – in the parks, walking the streets, relaxing and enjoying each other’s company. As I drove through the Village in late afternoon on Sunday, I was taken by the liveliness that makes our Village so interesting, fun and memorable.

Congratulations to the fellowship of the UAME, Sister Denise Smith and her committee and Reverend AnnMarie Bentsi-Addison Posey for the very successful and first annual Health Fair. Congratulations as well to Sustainable Warwick, Wickham Works, Elizabeth Moss, Melissa Shaw-Smith who organized the Too Good to Toss and TreeCycle events to celebrate Earth Day. Stanley Deming Park was brimming with people, volunteers, vendors, musicians, kids of all ages. The new bandstand and the Green were used just as we’d planned.
