Official Ribbon Cutting

On July 29, 2021, we finally got the opportunity to celebrate our official grand opening. Thank you to those who took the time to share kind words of our accomplishment, including Mayor Ben Florsheim, Senator Matt Lesser, Senator Quentin Phipps, Larry McHugh from the Middlesex Chamber of Commerce, our Board Chairperson Joe Knee and Board & Development Committee Member Brian Corvo.

 

It was a gratifying experience to finally share this milestone and all the hard work MARC has committed to creating a bigger and brighter future for our community. With the help of our incredible Board of Directors, this building would not be possible. We can't thank you all enough for all your support during one of our most significant transitions yet.
