REMA Fashion Show Set For September 6
As part of a program to enhance business and consumer relations on Far Rockaway’s main commercial strip, the Rockaway East Merchants Association (REMA) is hosting its 1st Annual Fall Fashion Show and Open Market on Saturday, September 6 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the public walkway located on Beach 20 Street between Mott and Cornaga Avenues.
The Fall Fashion Show and Open Market is truly a community-wide event as it is being supported by local community based organizations as well as small business owners.
"For a long time I have wanted to give something back to the community – to make an event that would be fun and special for all the families in the community, and for the merchants. To make a day full with fun, food, music, and special sales that everyone can enjoy" is Alan Postman’s goal. Postman, is the treasurer of the Rockaway East Merchants Association and owns Auto Post Auto Parts on Beach 20 Street.
Facilitating the event is Tony Berkel and Valerie West of the Rockaway Development & (RDRC). Berkel says that he is "delighted and encouraged by the diversity of community members and groups which have joined together to ensure the success of the event".
