Paragon Federal Offers "Market Wednesdays"
MONTVALE, N.J. - With an atrium located in the center courtyard of its 100,000 square-foot headquarters, Paragon Federal Credit Union has launched "Market Wednesdays." The first Wednesday of every month, visitors enjoy free lunch, live music and unique shopping from local artisans and merchants selling items such as handmade crafts, homemade baked goods, jewelry, artwork and quilts. Artisans and merchants exhibit from 11:00 am - 2:30 pm in the "Carl's Place" atrium and food and music are provided from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm. The atrium itself pays homage to one of Paragon FCU's founders Carl Strong. The grand porch resides in a covered atrium under a 40-foot high translucent arching ceiling and features a covered arbor roof, gazebo and custom artwork in the windows depicting dcor from the 1930s. The event is another way to reinforce the credit union's image as a destination and true community partner. The next "Market Wednesday" will be held August 3, 2005.
