Good afternoon. This is Tara Bliss, Village Clerk of the Village of Walden. Today is Monday June 26, 2017. It is approximately 3pm. I am calling to inform residents that today, beginning at approximately 4pm the Village of Walden Police Department in coordination with surrounding area Police Departments and the Orange County Sherrif’s Department as well as fire and EMS Services will be conducting an Active Shooter Drill at Walden Elementary School.  This training will last into the evening hours.  During this time frame the areas of Walnut Street, Pine Street, Orchard Street, and Municipal Square will have an increase of activity and will be partially closed to traffic.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but do hope residents can understand and appreciate the importance of this extremely valuable and potentially lifesaving training.  Thank you.
