DUTCHESS CHAMBER JOINING LOCAL OFFICIALS MONDAY, DECEMBER 10 TO CELEBRATE GRAND RE-OPENING OF VILLAGE OF WAPPINGERS FALLS FOR BUSINESS FOLLOWING BUILDING COLLAPSE
The Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce is cutting a ribbon rain or shine to officially re-open Main Street in the Village of Wappingers Falls on Monday, December 10 at 12:30 p.m. This special event, to be held at Mesier Park, is open to local business owners, government officials and the public at large. It is being held in recognition of the recent unfortunate circumstances that have created a hardship for the small businesses populating the area. Parking is available in the Zion Episcopal Church directly across from the park.
“I want everyone to know that the Village of Wappingers Falls is open for business!” said Charles North, President and CEO of the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce. “Hopefully people will re-arrange their schedules to come to this ribbon cutting and show that in their time of need, the Hudson Valley community supports the Village of Wappingers Falls.”
In addition to the traditional ceremony, several dignitaries will deliver remarks including: Dutchess County Executive Marcus Molinaro, Village of Wappingers Falls Mayor Matt Alexander, Wappingers Falls Business and Professional Association President Kathy Rutledge, Dutchess County Economic Development Corporation President Cathy Maloney and more. At the conclusion of the event, all attendees are urged to walk through Main Street and the surrounding area and stay for lunch, take care of some holiday shopping and network with the business owners. Many businesses are planning to offer special promotions for those that attend and show their support.
“The heart of the Village of Wappingers Falls is again open for all to enjoy and patronize,” said Molinaro. “Join us to enjoy some great local dining, unique shopping and support the Village of Wappingers Falls community.”
