Honored to give the opening remarks this morning to kick off the 9th Annual Conference on Caregiving. We are fortunate to have such dedicated organizations in our community that support caregivers. Most importantly I applaud all of our family caregivers who are true heroes.
I visited the Therapeutic Equestrian Center in Cold Spring to discuss their new Military Program for our veterans. They provide therapeutic and recreational riding for physically and developmentally disabled children and adults.
Pleased to join the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce and Poughkeepsie Supervisor Todd Tancredi in welcoming AT&T’s continued investment in Poughkeepsie and commitment to jobs in Dutchess County, including a new and larger high tech wireless center. I wish them success in their new location as we continue to work towards growing our economy.
Thank you to Bulkeley Middle School in Rhinebeck for having me at your special Veterans Day Assembly. It was an important opportunity for students to hear from veterans in our community and show their appreciation.
Just met with Ava Bynum, Founder & Executive Director of Hudson Valley Seed. This is a great organization that works with local classrooms through educational gardens and a nature-based curriculum to creatively educate our youth.
It's the diversity of cultures that makes the Hudson Valley an exciting place to live. I took part in celebrating the Mexican Holiday, "Day of The Dead," in the City of Poughkeepsie which is devoted to keeping the memories alive of those family and friends that are no longer with us.
