  • Maybrook’s Halloween Drive-thru– The Village of Maybrook hosted our annual Halloween Drive-thru on Monday, October 31st in the Frederick Myers Veterans Memorial Park. It was very well attended. I’d like to thank the Maybrook Police Department, the Maybrook Fire Department, the George C. Bullis Community Center, the Wallkill Valley Federal Savings and Loan, Village Clerk Treasurer Tina Johnson, Deputy Mayor Jim Barnett and Trustee Charlie Woznick for their assistance. We saw a lot of smiling faces and more importantly, it was a safe night of trick or treating for the kids in the village!
  • Leaf Pick-up-Just a reminder, Leaf pick-up by County Waste ended on Thursday, October 27th. The village has a dumpster for leaf disposal here at the Government Center from now through to December 1st. Many trees still have leaves on them, and the dumpster will allow extra time for leaf cleanup before winter. Leaves must be placed in biodegradable bags. The Village of Maybrook DPW will make one sweep of the village per week to pick up bagged leaves going forward. Residents are more than welcome to discard bagged leaves on their own. Please be advised, contractors are not permitted to discard leaves in the dumpster.
  • Orange County Farm Toy Show- The Orange County Farmer’s Museum hosted their annual Orange County Farm Toy Show on Saturday, November 5th at the Maybrook Senior Center. They had great weather for the event and it was well attended!
  • The Village of Maybrook’s Annual “Christmas Tree Lighting– The Village of Maybrook’s Annual “Christmas Tree Lighting” will be held on Sunday, November 27th and begin at 6 pm. We will have performances by Singer Songwriter Kevin Cronin, the Maybrook Girl Scouts, the Valley Central Musicians and the Maybrook Troop 236 Scout Marching Band! Light refreshments will be provided by Shoprite along with a guest appearance made by Santa Claus and his friends! Hope to see everyone there to welcome the Christmas Season into our village!
  • Town of Montgomery Veterans Day Ceremony– On Friday, November 11th the Town of Montgomery and Supervisor Brian Maher hosted their annual Veterans Day Ceremony. Thank you to all Veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice for our country. Thank you to Village of Maybrook Trustee Daryl Capozzoli for your service. A special thank you to Tony Marano for his service. On November 8th Tony turned 98 years young. Tony’s a class act and a good friend to many. Happy Birthday and many more Tony. I also want to give a shout out to Harry and Johnny Toramanides of the Mainline Diner. Harry and Johnny served free pancakes to Veterans who came into the diner for breakfast on Veterans Day. Nice job guys!
