Mar 13 | Sugarloaf Performing Arts Center:
Richard Shindell & Lucy Kaplansky with special guests Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams | 8PM
Lucy Kaplansky and Richard Shindell have been singing together for 25 years. And they?ve talked about making a record together for just as long. In summer 2014 an extraordinarily successful Kickstarter campaign raised the initial goal of $40,000 in 24 hours, going on to ultimately reach over $85,000, to bring that desire to fruition under the band name, The Pine Hill Project. Tomorrow You're Going,?= an Americana masterwork of great songs, gorgeous harmonies, and stunning production will be released in 2015. The album is at turns meditative, joyful, rollicking, and deeply moving, and a one of a kind musical event. RICHARD SHINDELL & LUCY KAPLANSKY with Special Guests LARRY CAMPBELL and TERESA WILLIAMS Friday, March 13th 8:00pm Tickets: $40.00, $35.00 & $30.00 reserved seating Tickets are on sale now at the Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center box office, all Ticketmaster locations, charge by phone 1-800-745-3000 and online at Ticketmaster.com Tickets are on sale now at the Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center box office, all Ticketmaster locations, charge by phone 1-800-745-3000 or online at Ticketmaster.com Read more about The Pine Hill Project

Mar 30 |Town-wide meeting Town Hall | 7PM
To get Warwick residents’ ideas for how best to make use of the “public access” acreage — about 600 acres — on site of the former prison. While this is of importance to everyone in Warwick, it is doubly so for SW members because what gets created out there will have an enormous impact — hopefully positive — on the overall sustainability of the community.Most of you know the background: The 750-acre Mid Orange Correctional Facility closed in 2011; After a long bureaucratic wrangle with the State, the site was sold in 2014 to Warwick in 2 parcels: a section for potential commercial development for $3 + million and a larger section for public and recreational use for $1; The commercial development is proceeding; roads and infrastructure will go in this spring and several tenants have signed on; The public access section includes a treasure trove of wonderful possibilities: over 400 acres of designated wetlands, wooded areas, sports fields, a large pavilion with kitchen/dining space, several access points to the 128-acre Wickham Lake, the headwaters of the Wawayanda Creek,and various major buildings, including the historic 1841 manor house and the former dairy barn shown in an artist rendering below, just to give a sense of scale and possibilities. Recreation? A center for the arts? Outdoor theatre? Facilities for education/specialized workshops? Walking trails? A kayak launch? It’s a truly amazing opportunity for Warwick and this brings us to &hellip the March 30th meeting from 7-9 in Town Hall. We’re asking SW members to do two things:

1) Take this easy survey to register your broad ideas on https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/warwickpublicsurvey
2) Come to the meeting and be part of the process that decides how the Town will move forward on these possibilities.
We hope to see many of you at Town Hall on the 30th.
