Local Memorial Day parade set
The Warrensburg Memorial Day Parade this year will be held on May 31. The parade is co-sponsored by the American Legion Post No. 446 and V.F.W Post No. 4821.
Following tradition, the parade will leave the firehouse on Elm Street at 9 a.m. and proceed up Elm and Hudson streets to the cemetery, where a memorial service will be held. After the ceremonies, parade participants will march back to the firehouse. In case of rain, the parade will be cancelled and the ceremonies will be held at the Warrensburg Elementary School. Following the celebration, refreshments will be served at the V.F.W. Post on Main St.
Anyone wishing to join in this patriotic tribute is welcome to do so. Please call the parade chair Ray Hensler at 494-3456 to establish your position in the parade.
Rohe exhibit to open at Willows Bistro
Willows Bistro will host local artist Anne Rohe at an exhibition reception on May 7, from 7-8:30 p.m. The event will showcase Rohe's exhibit of acrylic paintings, each in a rustic frame handcrafted by Al Rohe.
Anne Rohe's work concentrates on local landscapes of area scenes, highlighting including children, animals, old buildings and local residents.
Born in the Adirondacks, Rohe first started painting while attending Warrensburg high School. She minored in art at SUNY New Paltz. It was not until opening Adirondack Ambiance on state Rte. 418 in Thurman Station that she began to devote serious time to her artwork.
Willows Bistro is located on Main St. in downtown Warrensburg.

Spruce Mountain farm stand is now open
Spruce Mt. Farm stand on state Rte .9 between Warrensburg and Chestertown is now open 7 days per week from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. for the 2010 summer/fall seasons.
At this farm stand, Linda Baker-Marcella sells locally grown vegetables, either her own produce or from other area farms.
Along with fresh produce Linda bakes many different varieties of breads, rolls, pies, cakes and cookies. Those who would like her to make a special confection - a pie, bread, cheese-cake sugar- or gluten-free delight - give her a call at 623-5030.
A real estate broker, Linda decided to open up a farm stand when property sales became sluggish last year.
Her farm's chickens produce eggs, and their bees produce raw honey - all of which are also for sale at the farm stand. Take my word for it, Linda is an excellent baker and makes all of her baked items. Linda will take special orders any time of the year, by the way.
