Tuxedo Park, NY: Monday, May 27, 2019 from 12:00-2:30pm the Tuxedo Park Library will host their 16th Annual Memorial Day Community Picnic. At the event, a journal will be distributed that commemorates those community members who gave the supreme sacrifice while in service to our country.  This event also gives the library an opportunity to show our gratitude to local service men and women, our fondness for our patrons, and an immense appreciation for the Tuxedo community.

Many thanks to library staff members and dedicated local volunteers for organizing an event that brings hundreds of people together.  The picnic helps raise funds for the library’s wide variety of programming and has grown tremendously over the past few years.

The Tuxedo Memorial Day parade passes in front of the library on Route 17 at 11:30am. For senior citizens to observe the parade, the library provides chairs and a pop-up tent for shelter from the sun. Food, entertainment and activities are included for all ages. Entertainment will begin at 12:30pm, and raffle drawings for a wide variety of locally donated prizes will begin at 2:00pm.

Main Raffle prizes include: Thursday evening wine pairing and dinner for 4 at Glenmere Mansion; 3-hour Dinner Picnic Cruise for 8 on Tuxedo Lake catered by Tuxedo Park Events; Foursome of Golf & Lunch at the Tuxedo Club; Weber Genesis II S-310 Gas Grill; and a pair of Apple AirPods Wireless Headphones.
