Tonight's festivities at the Opening Ceremony of the Special Olympics Winter Games starting at 8:00 at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center will feature the Parade of Athletes, entertainment, and the lighting of the Special Olympics Cauldron.  I am really pleased to be emceeing this event and hope to see lots of you filling the stands and cheering on the athletes who travel from all over New York State for this experience of a lifetime.  We can give them a really big Hudson Valley WELCOME!
