To the editor:
As the song goes, “There is something going on in the little town, in the small town of Malta.” EXPO 2012, an eclectic extravaganza involving a race, a veteran’s parade, and a showcase of educational opportunities, hobbyists, crafters, artists and businesses is planned for Sept. 8 at the Hudson Valley Community College TEC-SMART Campus.
Malta Sunrise Rotary, working with the Malta Business and Professional Association, Hudson Valley Community College, NYSERDA and a host of schools and colleges, are sponsoring this community event. It will begin at 8 a.m. with a 5K race through the Luther Forest Tech Campus, followed by a veteran’s parade through downtown Malta at 10 a.m. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. exhibitors will be on display at the TEC-SMART Campus located at 345 Hermes Rd. Everything imaginable, from games for children to robotics, antiques, job advisors, educational counselors, crafts, art displays, performers, food vendors, inventors and businesses will be located in the rotunda of the college auditorium. Over 50 displays are planned.
The goal of EXPO 2012 is to create a stimulating event that brings the community together–residents, schools, businesses and artisans. There is something for everyone, at no cost to residents.
So why not stop by with your family and check out EXPO 2012? There is something of interest for all ages.
