Warrensburg's new municipal playground is now under construction, and is about 85 percent complete, supervisor Kevin Geraghty announced at the May 12 meeting of the Warrensburg Town Board.
The town council members expressed appreciation to Kurt G. Bedell for work he accomplished for his Eagle Scout project of designing and constructing the Tot Lot pavilion. Bedell dedicated hours to organizing the project and seeing it through completion - and board members said the project resulted in a formidable asset for the town.
"The pavilion is an outstanding addition to our town recreation property," board member John Alexander said.
Warrensburg Museum of Local History Director Steve Parisi reported that a wine & cheese reception will be held 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday May 30 to launch the museum's 2010 season. All are welcome to attend, he said.
Parisi also noted that an all-day educational program for 50 local seventh graders was planned for Tuesday. The program, which includes a review of the town's historical assets and a hike up Hackensack Mountain, was developed by high school science teacher John Burns. Parisi also noted that high school business teacher Michael Leonbruno continues to involve his computer class with audio-visual projects related to the historical museum.
The Historical Museum's exhibit "Fifty Years of Sports at WCS" continues through June 6, Parisi said.
In other business, Town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty announced that the town is hiring 13 teenagers this year to oversee their summer youth recreation program.
Warrensburg Fire Chief Justin Hull noted that a recent fire call to the Rocky Ridge Road subdivision north of the hamlet on state Rte. 9 brought to light some confusion as firefighters attempted to determine the site of the emergency.
Rocky Ridge Road extends into Rollies Road, while Rocky Ridge turns abruptly, but keeps the same name.
