Warwick's community spirit

    To the editor: On behalf of the Historical Society of the Town of Warwick, we would like to thank the Warwick community for its outstanding support and participation in our recent Under the Tent Pride and Preservation Party held on Aug. 27. Some $28,000 was raised by this event that was attended by 350 persons. The proceeds are a major portion of our annual operating budget, without which we could not provide our educational community outreach efforts nor maintain the museum buildings. Thanks to our "pole sponsors," antique dealers, local business and individual auction item donors, Society members and area restaurants who provided food, the many volunteers and to the members and public who were in attendance. All contributed to make this year's party the most successful in its 15-year history. This generous out-pouring will help insure that our buildings continue to be well maintained and the society's educational programs remain available to our school children and the public. Warwick's true community spirit has once again prevailed and we are most appreciative. Board of Directors Historical Society of the Town of Warwick Donald R. Lomax, President
