NEWBURGH -

A Newburgh church brought people together Saturday with a community block party.

The Orange County community gathered at Life Restoration Church for the event, which featured games, music, safety training and free haircuts.

"Today is basically everybody coming together," says Pastor Robert McLymore. "The whole entire community, whoever wants to come, coming together in unity."

Life Restoration Church officials say they hope to continue the Newburgh Community Block Party tradition for years to come.
