Retiring bike shop owner will be missed by Washington
When Al McCormick retires officially and closes his bike shop sometime in the coming weeks, it'll be a sad departure for many residents. After all, it is safe to say that in one way or another McCormick serviced more than 90 percent of bike owners in town - and the surrounding community - over the years, either through a bike sale or repairs.
McCormick, who has been a lifelong resident of the Borough, is retiring to Florida. His McCormick's Bicycle Shop will be no more.
"It's with mixed emotions that I am retiring," said McCormick, still surrounded by a few bikes and bike parts, at his corner shop on Youmans Avenue, near Route 31. "I'll miss it but ..." He doesn't have to finish - it is clear that retirement and Florida are what he is looking forward to!
Cocktails For The Park
The WBID's fundraiser for the downtown Pocket Park was a big success as over 100 people attended the event at the Mediterranean Bistro. The night included specialty cocktails, fine food, music and lots of fun!

It may be called a "Car Show" - but the annual Washington Car Show is anything but just a car show.

The family-friendly event takes place Saturday June 14 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Presented by the Washington Business Improvement District in the Downtown District on E. Washington Avenue (Rt. 57), the car show is free to the public. The rain date is the following day. "Both" events are open to the public to enjoy, with the Poker Run set to start at 11 a.m.
