“100% Volunteer – Serving our Community Since 1868”

Dear Neighbor,

2020 was certainly a year to be forgotten for all of us. The COVID pandemic wreaked havoc on our entire country, state, and community. Through it all our fire company continued to meet the emergency needs of its residents whenever called upon. Alas, there is light at the end of the tunnel. As the COVID vaccine continues to be administered on a daily basis, our community has begun to regain some normalcy as part of our daily lives. With this in mind and as summer approaches we are happy to announce that we will once again host the 70th edition of our Annual Summer Firemen’s Fair July 21st thru July 24th this year on the grounds of the Cornwall-on-Hudson Elementary School. This year’s fair promises to be very special in light of what we have all collectively faced this past year.

You will begin to see our advertising signs in the area beginning on or about July 1st. Set-up will begin Saturday July 17th with opening night of the fair on the 21st. The start time on Wed., Thur., and Fri. will be 6pm and closing time each night is 11pm. The final day of the fair, Saturday, will open at 4pm and close at 11pm following our grand fireworks display. We will host area summer camps on Wed. and Thur. between 9am and 1pm. Each night of the fair will include the typical carnival rides, games of chance, food and live music. Break down and clean- up will take place on Sunday July 25th with carnival ride removal from the grounds continuing for a couple of days thereafter.

While this annual summer event is much anticipated and enjoyed by the vast majority of our community, it can present some minor inconvenience and disturbance to some in our village. Particularly for residents such as you who reside in close proximity to the fair grounds. We do not this lightly and appreciate your understanding and cooperation. With this in mind, we would like to provide you the following contact information should you have any questions or concerns regarding this year’s fair. You may feel free to contact either of us.

October 23, 2020

Dear Village Folks:

Halloween 2020: Have Fun. Stay Safe.

 

The Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson will allow Trick or Treating in this year of the pandemic. We want children to experience the fun of this cultural tradition.

And we want everyone to be safe.

So that means that the Trick or Treaters must wear face masks – in addition to any masks for their costumes. They must social distance and travel in small numbers, with kids in their circles.

Parents must instruct their children to be safe, to abide by precautions that have been in effect for months.

To those handing out the goodies, you have several options:

  • Wear a mask yourself as you distribute candy;
  • Place candy outside at the end of your driveway or on your stoop;
  • Don’t participate this year.

Orange County Health Commissioner has issued a comprehensive advisory on how to safely navigate Halloween.

 

All the best,

Brendan Coyne

Mayor
