WARWICK — “In what year did Warwick get it's first Hospital?”

A) 1939

B) 1875

C) 1916.

(Answer revealed at end of the article).

This is one example of a multiple choice question to be asked at the upcoming Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce 78th anniversary membership celebration themed “Let’s Ask Warwick – The Chamber Challenge” on Saturday, Nov. 18, at Warwick Valley Country Club.

The interactive social promises to be a fun and festive evening as Warwick Valley Country Club is transformed into a TV game show set.

The night kicks off with cocktails and appetizers beginning at 6 p.m. and a heavy buffet (cash bar available).

“Let’s Ask Warwick” is being designed to mimic the format of the popular TV game show "Jeopardy."

Warwick Town Supervisor Michael Sweeton will take the stage to help MC the trivia bowl event when 36 lucky guests will have a chance to participate as contestants in a selection done by lottery.

Audience participation will also be an addition to this fun event.

Each year at the event, the chamber also presents awards to its most outstanding members for their accomplishments.

This year’s award recipients are:

Mayor Michael Newhard for Special Recognition;

The late Debbie Iurato, former owner of Peck’s Wine & Spirits, in memoriam for her Commitment to Community; and

John Redman, owner of Union Square Group for MVP (Most Valuable Person).

ShopRite of Warwick, Frazzleberries Country Store, Leo Kaytes Ford, Bellvale Farms Creamery and Cove Castle for Renovation Awards; and
