On Friday we celebrated the grand opening of Las Alba Inc with a ribbon cutting! They are a new design company that repurposes military uniforms into fashion, with the goal of raising funds for organizations that support mental health clinics, college funds and other veterans assistance programs that can also benefit the families of service people. Check out their gorgeous products at 19 North Street or give them a call at 914-407-3832!

The City of Middletown would like to thank the Run 4 Downtown Organization for their donation of $60,000 for the creation of a pavilion at Erie Way Park! The pavilion will be the new home of the Middletown BID Farmer's Market, and was included in the City’s DRI Strategic Plan. The City would not have been able to move this project forward without the support of the R4DT Organization!
