“What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday in Downtown Gloversville,” said Jennifer Donovan, Gloversville Downtown Development Specialist at The Fulton County Center for Regional Growth. “Small businesses are the backbone of the Downtown Corridor, and it is a treat to see the Palace Diner continue to be a staple under the Sena family who have been at the helm of this eatery for some 50 years. It is also great to see the new Color Coven businesses under Anastasia Lott grow and become part of the community. I also cannot wait to see the beautiful tribute to Fulton County and Gloversville’s economic past and the women who worked hard in the leather and glove industries.”
