90th Anniversary Festivities Rescheduled
The 90th anniversary festivities that were cancelled are being rescheduled to October 18th, and will coincide with other fall activities taking place that day. The exciting day in Greenwood Lake will kick off with Trick or Treating on Windermere at 2:00 p.m., sponsored by our Chamber of Commerce, followed by Firemen’s Halloween Parade which kicks off at 4:30p.m. and ends at CVS where the 90th Celebration will be. Between 4:30-6:00p.m. Grace Lutheran is hosting a Roast Pork Dinner at Grace Lutheran Church on Waterstone. The 90th Celebration begins at 5:00p.m. in CVS field and will go until 9:00p.m.. That very evening, the Chamber of Commerce is once again hosting Haunted Trails through our magnificent walking path behind CVS. Once again, we will be renaming the field after Ben and Gen Winstanley as well as dedicating the track around the field from the Lions Club President’s project of 2013.
