Celebrate the Holiday Season at the Warwick Historical Society’s Annual Wassail Party at Baird Tavern on Sunday, December 4, 2016 From 5-7pm.

Wassail! wassail! all over the town

Our toast it is white and our ale it is brown;

Our bowl it is made of the white maple tree;

With the wassailing bowl, we’ll drink unto thee.

Holiday food and drink will be plentiful at the Tavern, which is celebrating its 250th Anniversary this year and will be decked out in its holiday finest. Catch up with old friends and meet new ones as you sip on Wassail, a hot, mulled punch often associated with Yuletide and drunk from a ‘wassailing bowl.’ If Wassail is not for you, plenty of other beverages will be available. Feast on delicious hors d’oeuvres specially created for the occasion.

Tickets are $30.00 per person for non-members, $20.00 for Historical Society Members. For more information or to purchase your tickets, please call the Historical Society at 845-986-3236, ext. 106 Monday through Friday. 9am – 2pm.

Second Sunday Conversations @ Old School Baptist Church
Dec 11 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Second Sunday Conversations @ Old School Baptist Church | Warwick | New York | United States

The Village of Warwick, the Albert Wisner Public Library and the Warwick Historical Society will be co-sponsoring a series of informational talks celebrating community history, mythology and more. The series will begin September 11th at 2 p.m. at the A.W. Buckbee Center with, “The Evolution of Education”. The speakers will include Dr. Richard Hull, Beverley Braxton, Ivy Tulin and Kevin McGovern with an introduction by School Superintendent, Dr. David Leach. The topic, “The Evolution of Education” will look at the development of our Public School System, its rich history and some future perspectives. Upcoming topics include, “Spirited Story Telling” with the Black Dirt Story Telling Guild of the Florida Public Library on October 9th (to be held at the A.W. Buckbee Center, 2 Colonial Ave.) and, “This Land is Farmland” with Al Buckbee and Steve Pennings on November 13th.

The series is inspired by the Fortnightly Club which was a group of local citizens who would gather twice a month to discuss topics as a form of entertainment. The club began in the late 1800’s and was active into the 20th century.

The Second Sunday Conversations will be held monthly and throughout the entire Sesquicentennial year of 2017. All are invited to this free event.
