Have you seen the Teal Ribbons at the Village Government Center? Those ribbons represent Ovarian Cancer Month. October you will see Pink Ribbons for Breast Cancer Month.
Did you catch the Movie in the Park on September 4? Great movie! As I mentioned in my last column, the movie was one of my favorites, Grease! There was a prize for best costume. That prize went to Brooklyn Watkins who was dressed in 50’s style with a poodle skirt. ADORABLE! She won a large pizza and 2 liter soda from Little Pops Pizza! YUM! The Mayor and Board of Trustees want to thank the sponsors for the movie, Little Pops Pizza, Wallkill Valley Federal Savings and Loan and Stewart’s Shoppes.
Time to do some Fall Cleaning out. The Village of Maybrook Fall Village Wide Yard Sale is October 3, 2020 from 8am - 3pm. The village will advertise, all you have to do is put out your wares and make some money. No need for a permit!
While you are doing your fall cleaning and you find old papers that you don’t need anymore, like those old tax papers from 1995, you can bring them down to the Village Government Center Parking lot on October 16 from 8 a.m. until noon for Community Shred Day. Legal Shred will be there with their truck for bulk shredding.
Have you heard that music on Friday evenings coming from the direction of Veterans Memorial Park? The Boy Scout Band has been practicing. It’s been nice sitting outside on a nice evening listening to their music.

Garbage, recycling and bulk items should be put at curbside the Day before respective pick up. That means Sunday for Monday’s garbage pick up and Wednesday for Garbage, Recycling and Bulk items. The waste company will not take televisions, computers, air conditioners, refrigerators or anything that is considered hazardous waste. If you have a broken garbage or recycling toter, please call the Village of Maybrook, NOT the garbage company. The Village will make arrangements for a new one. The garbage company switches out toters on Wednesdays. Remember to put the old one out Tuesday to switch out on Wednesday.

As most of you have probably heard, the jovial face selling 50/50’s for Maybrook VFW 2064 and the Honor Flight, Artie Orpikowski, a Korean War Vet, has passed on. Artie was full of life and not much held him back. Artie always asked “How ya doing Kiddo?” Well, Artie is doing great now. He’s with the loves of his life and the pain of the last few months are gone now! See you later Kiddo!
