Friends & Neighbors,

                Our Firemen’s Fair has been a summer staple in the community for the past 69 years. Generations of our community have celebrated the summer season each year by partaking in the food, games, rides and all that the fair has to offer. For some who have attended as a child, they now relive that experience with their own children or even grandchildren. The celebration has continued without hesitation despite the many obstacles that have presented themselves over the course of all these years.

                The COVID-19 Pandemic has forced the cancellation or modification of many traditional spring and summer events in our community such the Memorial Day parade, River-Fest, High School graduation, and our community’s customary July 4th celebration. Unfortunately, our Firemen’s Fair is no different. 

                It is out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health and well-being of each and every member of the greater Cornwall-on-Hudson area that we must announce the cancellation of this year’s edition of our Firemen’s Fair. After careful and thoughtful collaboration with our partners, who assist us each year with its presentation, we found that there was no alternative other than its cancellation.

                We thank the Cornwall School District, Shamrock Shows, our local first responders, Village employees, Village Officials, the many businesses and you, our friends and neighbors, that have supported our Summer Fair each and every year. Without this support, we would not be able to conduct this event each year.

                So, we ask that you all mark your calendar for the 71st Edition of the Annual Storm King Firemen’s Fair to take place July 21 -24, 2021. We promise that you won’t want to miss it.  


The Village of Cornwall on Hudson offices will be closed on Monday, May 25 in observance of Memorial Day. There will be no garbage pick up on Monday, sanitation crews will be collecting household trash for the entire Village on Tuesday, May 26.



May 04, 2020

During the month of April, 2020’ I was contacted by, Mr. Dean Golemis, owner of Global Security and Investigative Services, 284 Main Street, Cornwall, N.Y. 12518. Mr. Golemis advised me that he recently read that the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson, N.Y., Police Department had applied for and received a Grant Award through, PERMA, Public Employee Risk Management Association, Inc., in the amount of approximately $1,775.00, for the purchase of five (5) Point Blank Bullet- Proof Vests and Bullet- Proof Vest Outer Carriers, which would cover half the costs of these listed items.

When Mr. Golemis contacted me he advised me that he wanted to make a formal donation to the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson Police Department to cover the other half of the costs accrued for these Bullet- Proof Vest’s and Bullet- Proof Vest Outer Carrier’s. Mr. Golemis advised me that he believed it was imperative that my officer’s had this new safety equipment immediately available to them stating, “this is my way of giving back to the Community.”

Obviously, this was tremendously thoughtful of Mr. Golemis, the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson Police Department is a very small police agency in Orange County, N.Y., and it means a great deal to my officers and I that we received such a generous donation.

Prior to owning Global Security and Investigative Services, Mr. Golemis served as a Deputy Sheriff with the Rockland County Sheriff’s Department where he finished out his 20 year career there as a, B.C.I., Bureau of Criminal Investigations, Investigator, so he’s very familiar with the daily risks and dangers Law Enforcement Officers face everyday.

Once again, on behalf of the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson, N.Y., Police Department, thank you very much, Mr. Golemis, for your generous donation of $1,775.00 to this police agency!!

Chief Steven E. Dixon
