The Pawling Green Pavilion and “Hats Off to Pawling” artwork will be officially dedicated at ceremonies scheduled for May 25, 2013, 10 a.m., at the bandstand plaza located of Charles Coleman Boulevard and Arch street. Immediately following at 11 am at the Gallery on the Green located at 7 Arch Street will be the opening of the Children’s art show inspired by “Hats Off to Pawling” . The arts show will feature a juried exhibition of artwork created by Pawling art students K-12 from local schools.
This cermeony is to celebrate the completion of the final piece of a new village centerpiece that has provided safe pedestrian access to stores and services, connected the village to parks and recreation and encouraged economic development.
Many officials are expected to attend the public event, representing the diversity of individuals and organizations involved in advancing the project.
The Pawling Green & Veterans’ Memorial Park was funded by donations and grants—no property taxes have been used to plan or build the project—and the community raised more than $2.4 million dollars to support this project.
