    To the editor: To the members of the "Warwick Merchants Guild" and to our Honorable Mayor Michael Newhard, I would like to thank all for a memorable honor which was given to me on Aug. 18 when I was crowned as "Queen For A Day." I would particularly like to thank Robert Demetry for nominating me for this honor, Roger Gavan for being there and showing his support, and Barbara Lawrence, president of the Merchant's Guild, for all the organizing and preparation put into making such a successful event on "Ladies Night Out," which was so much fun for all who attended. Lastly, I want to thank all my family and friends and associates from the PINS Reform Advocates who found the time to come to make this event even more special to me. It says a lot about a community that recognizes the little contributions someone makes to their community, and that is why Warwick is such a special place to live. I appreciate all the lovely gifts I received from all the participating merchant members, and encourage all to shop locally to support these fine businesses. As I continue to advocate and volunteer any services I can for this community and our state, I will always cherish the roots I have made here, in the most caring, humanistic community that I have ever been a part of n that being Warwick, New York.
