Warren Parks & Recreation
You are invited to America's most exciting Halloween Festival
in the bewitching seaport of Salem, MA. Salem may be most
widely known as the site of Salem witchcraft trials of 1692,
but this is also a colorful coastal city with a rich maritime heritage,
an impressive display of historic architecture and amazing stories
that span almost four centuries. Visit Salem for a "spell' and let
your imagination "set sail". We will visit the Salem Witch Museum
which brings you back to Salem 1692 for a dramatic
history lesson using stage sets with life-size figures.

Enjoy lunch on your own and explore the local shops before
we see "Cry Innocent: The People Versus Bridget Bishop" at
Salem's Old Town Hall. The year is 1692 and Bridget Bishop has been
accused of witchcraft and YOU are the Puritan jury. Hear the
historical testimonies, cross examine the witness
and decide the verdict. A must-see for everyone.

Warren Historical Society Scholarship
WARREN HISTORICAL SOCIETY AWARDS
SCHOLARSHIPS TO WARREN SCHOOL ALUMNI
In keeping with its mission to celebrate
 and preserve the town of Warren's history.

*******************
"Its not everyday that you plant a tree especially an
eighteen foot tree but that's exactly what we did!"
In its continuing effort to improve the Warren Town Beach
the Parks and Recreation Department planted an
18' SWEETGUM Tree (Liquidambar Styraciflua).  
The tree planting was done by Ken Kelly and Brain Capuano from the
 Warren Public Works Department along with Kit Lunberg
 from the Parks and Recreation Commission.
The tree was purchased from Twin Oaks Nursery in Woodbury, CT.
As the tree matures, it will provide valuable
shade for the public during the summer months.
It's a great example of being proactive in trying to protect
the beautiful resource that so many town residents enjoy!
