Warwick holds 250th anniversary potluck Saturday

WARWICK — Many potlucks feature slow-cooked specialties and Saturday’s community meal has been cooking for 250 years.

Warwickians are invited to bring a dish to share at the town’s 250th anniversary potluck at 6 p.m. Saturday in Town Hall.

Though everyone may come with something different, they’ll all leave with more than just an empty dish.

Every current Warwick resident will receive a medal in honor of the town’s 250th anniversary. The medals were the idea of resident Gregory Brodski, who received a similar one during the 500th anniversary celebration of Moscow, Russia. His wife, Ksenia Popova, designed the medals, using the town’s flag as a basis. Thanks to private donations and 250th anniversary funds, there are enough medals to go around, one for every person in the town’s street listing.

The actual anniversary was Feb. 17, but the town has been celebrating all year, from a mid-winter ice-cutting, to August’s Old Home Day, Saturday’s potluck and beyond.

The menu won’t be certain until Saturday evening, but the 250th Anniversary Committee has promised to provide the main course of roast pork, which proved popular at last spring’s dinner theater.

They’ll need side dishes, salads, appetizers and desserts, though, and that’s where you come in.

There is no cost to attend, and you won’t be shown the door if you show up empty-handed.

For more information, contact Town Coordinator David Young, at 978-729-3224.
