down main street

ON THE MOVE — Students from The Foundry School in Cold Spring walked from their building on Kemble Street to the gazebo on April 29 as part of International Day, which is celebrated by all Montessori schools. After learning about the geography, traditions and food of various countries, each student chose one to represent, typically from his or her own heritage. Here, the class is led down Main Street by teacher Bethany Ciulla. (Photo by Emily DeGroof)


SURPRISE SEND-OFF — The Beacon Police Department recently surprised Vincent Cervone, the owner of Cervone’s Auto Body, to celebrate his retirement after more than 50 years in business. If an officer needed a car towed, Cervone usually got the call. (Photo by Jeff Simms)
