A little over a year ago, a couple of families in Warrensburg presented an idea to have a community Christmas Tree. This would be to signify that we are One Community but Many Families. So………We are excited to be presenting….
ONE TREE – MANY BRANCHES
Coming this year, we will be having our first Community Christmas Tree. Just like one tree has many branches, we are going to need many people to help decorate this one tree.
We invite you to decorate the tree with an ornament that signifies your family, purchase an ornament or two, or there are some ornaments at the Village Hall which can be decorated or filled to hang on the tree.
Please come and join us on Saturday, December 3 from 6:00 – 7:30 pm to place your ornament on our tree. The tree will be located on the west side of the Village Hall. Stick around for fellowship, caroling & refreshments leading up to the lighting of Warrensburg’s tree.

The Warrensburg – Latham Lion’s Club will one again be sponsoring the Brotherhood Tree to assist those in the area with Christmas gifts and a gift card to help cover food costs. If you would like to donate a toy to help with this project, they may be dropped off at the Village Hall during office hours. More details will be posted as they are made known.

The Village of Warrensburg would like to recognize 3 of the businesses in Warrensburg:
Cancun Warrensburg on their opening October 26.
DaBurg Bar & Grill on their new ownership by Matt & Karen Hauersperger and their “Official” opening ceremony on November 4. To Chad & Bea Calhoun….thank you for the many years you gave to the Village of Warrensburg. Enjoy the next phase of your life.
Warrensburg Cafe on recently changing ownership. Gloria Hernandez has purchased the property (instead of renting) and has been making a few changes.
Please make an effort to support not only these businesses but the other local businesses in the Village. Locally owned or managed companies need your support more than ever.
