July 2018 Update:
MICA worked with our MIFD to arrange the use of the old Kmart parcel for its 70th Anniversary Celebration on July 26-July 29, 2018. Property owners Wilbur Breslin and Fred Colin allowed use of the parcel. We thanked them accordingly and continued to press for permanent plans for the huge property :
Dear Fred and Wilbur,
This weekend the Middle Island Fire Department celebrated its 70th Anniversary with a carnival, parade and fireworks display — on your property in Middle Island. Our Middle Island Civic Association was delighted to participate in the parade and attend both the carnival and fireworks. Thank you both for allowing this unprecedented event to go forward. It was a wonderful and memorable celebration which the entire community enjoyed. Below are a few photos from our civic website as evidence of the festivities.
Being on that parcel again reminded many of us how huge it is — and how huge its potential is! We are still eager to meet with you and learn about your latest plans for this property. Also, we recently received confirmation from NYS DOT that a traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Rt 25 and Currans Rd. Previous plans made you responsible for this costly improvement. I hope this relief will serve as motivation for progress at the most significant property in Middle Island.
Hope to hear from you soon.

MICA Celebrates MIFD’s 70th Anniversary
Many thanks to our members who participated in MIFD’s 70th Anniversary Parade. We looked great marching down Middle Country Road in our red, white and blue. And it was wonderful to hear the crowd saying “Thank You” to both the FD and the civic!
