LeCount family reunion held
Longtime Warrensburg citizen Jane LeCount’s 86th birthday occurred on Feb. 5, and her family members, representing four generations, gathered Feb. 17 to celebrate the occasion.
To join the festivities and honor Jane, her relatives traveled from Maryland, Georgia, Connecticut, Long Island, Cobleskill, Johnstown, Albany, and South Glens Falls. Jane expressed her thanks to her daughters Beth and Dorcas, and their respective husbands Phil McLaughlin and Kevin Conkling, and her son Larry and his wife Kim LeCount for planning and holding a memorable, festive family birthday celebration.
Museum exhibit is substantial
The Warrensburg Museum of Local History opened their town Bicentennial exhibit last Sunday, and it was indeed impressive. While many people though the permanent collection was comprehensive, this new exhibit expands the remarkable collection and adds so much more. It’s definitely a must-see. The exhibit, to be on display through October, includes a lot of new fascinating details on Warrensburg’s history. The displays are informative and very professionally presented.
Kudos to Museum Director Steve Parisi along with members of the Warrensburgh Historical Society and the many Museum volunteers who have contributed so much.
The museum is open 11 a.m.to 4 p.m. on Wednesdays, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays, and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month.

Plan now for town’s celebration
Warrensburg Day, scheduled for Thursday July 4, is serving as the town’s primary celebration of its bicentennial.
The event, is likely to include activities for folks of all ages — while highlighting the history of the town — is to be held at the town recreation field off Sanford St.
A parade, with a bicentennial theme, is to launch the celebration that day. Businesses, organizations and individuals are all welcome to sponsor a float in the parade.
Some people have talked about riding antique bicycles, driving vintage cars, riding horses, or dressing up in clothes from bygone days.
Musical groups, including marching bands, are also urged to join in the historic procession. The parade route is yet to be determined due to road construction.
If you wish to participate — or you merely have an idea — contact the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce at 623-2161 or: www.WarrensburgChamber.com.
