Happening This Weekend - 6/1/2018

Hello June! And hello humidity. Got frizzy hair? Best to give into it with some beach hair product maybe carried in salons around Beacon (check A Little Beacon Blog's Beauty Guide for listings!). You might be able to pick some up at Colorant who makes their own batch of bottled ocean (check with them first, we couldn't confirm in time for publication!).

Antalek & Moore Insurance Agency

Did you hear that Antalek & Moore has expanded into Ulster County, by way of Marlboro, NY? While they have always serviced a wide-ranging area, this new office bridges the gap between Newburgh and Beacon, says Co-Executive Partner Susan Antalek Pagones: “There seems to be a business barrier when it comes to the Newburgh-Beacon bridge. We wanted to overcome that obstacle and found that opening our own office on that side of the river would be the perfect way to do so.”  Antalek and Moore also welcomes Rob DeWit to their team.
