From the Mayor’s Office
The Village of Greenwood Lake will never forget the tragic day where we lost so many of our family members, friends, neighbors, fellow citizens and those visiting our amazing country on September 11th, 2001. On Friday, September 11th, 2015, the Village of Greenwood Lake will host a brief remembrance ceremony at our Senior Center at 11:30 a.m. All are welcome to attend. At 7:00 p.m., the Volunteer Fire Department will hold a memorial service at their firehouse to remember those lost as well. Please consider attending one, if not both, of these memorials.
Paddle Board and Kayak Race on GWL
Saturday September 12th GWL will see our first ever stand up paddle board (SUP) race on the lake. Event coordinator and owner of Jersey Paddle Boards, Micki Lees, put together this massive race which can be viewed by the public at our Thomsa Morahan Waterfront Park. If you have any questions, please email Micki from Jersey Paddle Boards at email@example.com or check out www.jerseypaddleboards.com. All proceeds from the event are being donated to the backpack snack attack and viewing of the event is free from the beach.
40th Annual GWL Bed Race and Parade!
The Greenwood Lake Chamber of Commerce proudly presents the 40th Annual Bed Race and Parade! On September 26th, 12 PM, local businesses, clubs, organizations and friends will decorate their “bed on wheels” and parade them down Windermere. After the parade, we will race the beds back up Windermere to see who made the fastest “bed” and who should’ve “stayed in
bed”. There will also be an award for most original Bed. If you are interested in entering a team, contact Teresa Thomas at TeresaT@pedalpowerinc.com or pick up a registration form at The Greenwood Lake Garden Center, Windermere Insurance or Pedal Power Inc.
