Mural Unveiled

The Village of Middleburgh unveiled its beautiful new mural on Main Street on Wednesday, July 4th. The ceremony was attended by about 50 people and is on the side of the Artisans' Gallery building, owned by Rich and Heather Villegi.

The mural depicts various scenes from Middleburgh's history. The Mural Committee was headed by Village Trustee Bill Morton. The project had help from various local artists, including Gladyl Gardner, Patty Turner, Bonnie Morton, and Patricia Brancoforte. There was help from various organizations, like Rotary, MEVAC, St. Mark's Church, Bush Lumber, the Arts and Crafts festival and others.

Residents were enthusiastic. Trustee Morton offered his "profound thanks," while former judge Jim Spencer stated that the mural was a "jewel in the crown of Middleburgh." Mayor Avitabile said that the project is yet another that has been completed over the last several months.
