Village Voice - March 2021

Dear Neighbors:
Mark your calendar! I am happy to report that on Sunday, August 22nd, Ringwood will hold its Annual Town Picnic. The Picnic will begin at noon in the Village Hall Park. Details about our 2021 Annual Town Picnic will be available in the next edition of the Village Voice. Normally an announcement about our annual town picnic would not be a big deal. But as you know, we had to cancel our 2020 picnic along with just about everything else in our personal and collective lives as a result of the pandemic. Thanks to at least 3 vaccines, every adult in America that wants a vaccine will have that opportunity by mid-summer. As a result, I’m very hopeful that our 2021 picnic will be a safe and fun event. I look forward to seeing everyone at this year’s picnic.

Village Voice - October 2020

Dear Neighbors,
I hope this newsletter finds you well. This pandemic has upended many of our family and community traditions in 2020. I still find it hard to believe that we had to cancel our Village picnic this year. The Village picnic has been an annual tradition since 1993. A pandemic is the only thing that I can think of that would have forced us to cancel this very important community event. Many of you shared with me how much you missed this year’s picnic. I continue to be hopeful that we will able to resume our annual picnic in 2021.
