Hello everyone, 
Well, we made it through!  The South Street bridge has reopened! Two days ahead of schedule!
Our last Hudson Valley Hot Rod Car Show was held on Monday evening, August 15th, at Fulton Square bringing to an end our “Summer of Washingtonville” events. The car show ended just in time for the 11pm opening of the South Street Bridge. I want to thank all of our residents for working together, being patient and most of all going out of your way to support our local businesses through the bridge project. Now that the bridge closure is behind us it is important that we continue to support the Village and ALL of our businesses. We need them as much as they need us. We have celebrated many successes this summer with several Grand Openings for new businesses in the Village and the Town. The community came together, as it has in the past when when obstacles presented themselves. That is what makes our town so great! The anticipated September 2017  reopening of the re-imagined Moffat Library is still before us and will bring the center of the Village back to its grand days of being the centerpiece of The Village. I’ve said many times, The Moffat Library has been the heart and sole of the Village for 125 years, and it will be wonderful having it back. We have many people to thank for putting together our summer events and I will be doing that as soon as I get the list together. I don’t want to leave anybody out! Remember, school will be opening on Tuesday, September 6th. Please watch for children and drive carefully. We wish all of our returning students a safe and successful year!

Remember, “Keep Your Town in Business by Keeping Your Business in Town!

Rick Lewis, Board President
