Department of Small Interventions Partners
With Horizons-on-the-Hudson

Horizons families, community partners, and members from the community painted a high visibility intersection mural on Monday, October 14th at the intersection of Montgomery and South Streets. Not only is the mural beautiful, it will also help bring more awareness and safety to the busy intersection for the children attending school at Horizons-on-the-Hudson.

Coordinated by HOH PTO President Kate Clarke and City of Newburgh Transportation Committee leader Naomi Hersson-Ringskog as well as the Department of Small Interventions. Volunteers from MSMC, the Health Department, parent volunteers from HOH PTO, and students participated. With special thanks to Eddie Rembrant who spent two days with the group to guide detail and proper supplies were used to ensure a long-lasting finished product.
