Tuxedo Park, NY: Monday, May 30, 2022 from 12:00-2:30pm the Tuxedo Park Library will host their 17th Annual Memorial Day Community Picnic. “After a two-year break, we are thrilled to bring back this special event that brings the entire Tuxedo community together.” said Diane Loomis, Director of the Tuxedo Park Library. 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.
