The Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, New York, is getting a facelift and a name change.

Mid-Hudson Civic Center president Danielle Anderson says the center will be renamed for the founder and CEO of Kingston-based Gas Land Petroleum, who has purchased the naming rights. The civic center is to be renamed the Majed J. Nesheiwat Convention Center. Nesheiwat says he recalls watching a wrestling match at the Civic Center as a teenager, and is excited to give back to the community. Anderson says the Nesheiwat investment will help bring back the glory of the civic center’s past with an updated look, for one. Rehabilitation will begin in 2019 starting with a structural facelift and grounds beautification.
