New Windsor Community Day 8.23.14

August 25, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Community Day is always special in New Windsor. I go to many events and festivals throughout the year but none compare to this one. Matt Veronisi and his staff plan and put on the best event in the Hudson Valley. This is a huge undertaking and the Town of New Windsor deserves a lot of praise and thanks from all who attend. This year was extra special because the field that the event takes place on, formerly named Mt. Airy Sports Complex was renamed and dedicated in memory of Kristi Babcock who tragically died a year ago. Kristi had worked in the Recreation Dept. for 13 years and was loved by all. A 19 ton boulder was taken from her sister's yard and used as a centerpiece for the memorial which displays a plaque including a photo of Kristi and an inscription from her co-workers in the Recreation Dept. A photo of the memorial is included in the gallery of photos.

This year I split the photos into two galleries so that the resulting slideshows were not too long. The first set is basically vendors, rides and entertainment including wrestling, New Windsor Community Day 8.23.14 part1-6New Windsor Community Day 8.23.14 part1-6 The Manakling Brothers and Tim Urban.
