Friday night I put on my uniform and  joined the crew of the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel, greeting our guests, carrying luggage, and all around making myself useful until about 6:00 p.m.  Girls Night Out was a complete sell-out! and a huge success.  A big thank you to Maureen Kangas, Manager of the Poughkeepsie Grand; her efficient and friendly staff; Michelle Taylor and Patty Quyn, the "Pajama Princesses;" as well as all the many vendors and, of course, the guests, who together made the night unforgettable.   (By the way, I understand that today is Maureen Kangas' birthday.)
