Dover-Wingdale thanks essential workers with special concert
WINGDALE — With help from the local band, Scarecrow, and a few other special guests, the Dover-Wingdale community both thanked and paid tribute to the essential workers living in the Hudson Valley, with a special recognition concert held on Saturday, July 17.
Running from 4 to 7 p.m. in Boyce Park in Wingdale, area residents attended the concert with their folding chairs and blankets in tow to enjoy the concert and show their support for those who helped the community get through the worst of the coronavirus pandemic.
Due to the storms in the forecast, Dover Recreation Director Julie Muncey said the concert wasn’t as well-received as the town had hoped for, but she said those who did brave the rain had a great time.
Along with the musical entertainment at the concert, the event featured guest speakers, food, face painting and other community fun for those who honored their Hudson Valley heroes.
