Home photos sought
The new Warrensburgh Museum of Local History exhibit reviewing local architecture, was curated by Delbert Chambers and includes the book "Then and Now," which provides examples of Warrensburg homes and their various styles. Residents who live in Warrensburg homes built before 1950 are invited to submit photos of their residences as they looked originally along with a current view. Examples that qualify will be added to the book, which is on display for all visitors to examine. Submitted photos, incidentally, will be scanned and returned immediately.
To submit a photo to be considered for the exhibit, call Steve Parisi at 623-2207.
The Warrensburg Community Garden will soon become a reality, and it's time for gardeners to reserve their plots.
The garden will be located at the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce/Senior Center on Main St. A grant was awarded to Warrensburg for the design and planning of the garden area, through the assistance of Cornell Cooperative Extension. The town is responsible for the preparation of the garden, which features raised beds. These plots will be available for town residents to plant vegetables for personal home use.
With healthy eating and lifestyles being stressed in the schools and by medical authorities, Warrensburg residents can heed the advice and take advantage of a great opportunity to pursue the art of gardening in a neighborly atmosphere.
Those who have not gardened before can partake of tips offered by Cooperative Extension's Master Gardeners who will be available to help novices plant and raise vegetables. The plots are $10 for a 12'x4' raised bed. Those interested in reserving a plot may contact Cooperative Extension at 623-3291 for details.
