WARWICK — On Sunday, Sept. 10, members of the Chosun Taekwondo Academy, located at 60 Galloway Road in Warwick, hosted their eighth annual Book & Bake Sale to benefit the Warwick Lions Club/Rotary International holiday party for underprivileged children.

Funds were also earmarked for co-sponsor Warwick Historical Society.

The event was organized and executed by the Chosun Leadership Team, a group of youngsters within the academy whose mission it is to provide community service and enhance leadership skills by embracing the ancient creed of traditional taekwondo.

Nearly 10,000 books were donated by Warwick residents, with one-day sales generating significant proceeds.

Contributing sponsors for the event included: Warwick General Rentals, Warwick Valley Farmer’s Market, Warwick Historical Society, Guardian Self-Storage, Frank’s Pizza and CVS.

On hand to encourage success of the sale was Warwick Mayor Michael Newhard, Warwick Town Supervisor Michael Sweeton and Lions Club Event Chairwoman Claire Gabelmann.

“The Chosun Taekwondo Academy Leadership Team is nothing short of amazing," Gabelmann said. "The Chosun Book & Bake Sale has continuously generated significant funds for this worthy event. They are well-organized and successful in their community efforts. All involved at the Lions Club are impressed with their enthusiasm and abilities under the direction of Master Cheryl Crouchen and Master Doug Cook.”
