“It’s a very valuable program,” Cadle said.

Main Street Crestview Association President Ellis Conner was the recipient of a Local Florida Main Street Program Supporter merit award.

A Business of the Year merit award went to Coney Island and owner Julia Phillips. The hotdog restaurant has served local customers — who were always greeted with a familiar, “What fer ya?” by founder Mable Edge—for more than 40 years.

Main Street Crestview was also recognized for 15 years of continuous service to the community.

Conner said the association would submit an application to Main Street Florida to have the refurbishment of the historic 1930s Alatex Building sewing factory and one-time City Hall into a pharmacy school for Florida A&M University recognized next year.

“This coming year, we look forward to receiving the number one project award, the Alatex and FAMU project,” Conner said. “We would like to submit this to the state for consideration for outstanding project.”
