We didn't get everyone in the picture, but this group of smiling faces is representative of the many happy, friendly listeners who gathered Monday at the McDonald's on Route 9 in Poughkeepsie for our final "Joe on the Road" visit for 2017. It's amazing how people instantly form a community--many have joined me at different locations throughout this last season of visits, and many have gotten to know each other over coffee and, many times, lunch. Does the heart good!
Two winners were chosen at random; first, Olga from Poughkeepsie, and
our second winner was Debi from Poughkepsie. Congratulations to you both!
They took home the Q92 "Wake Up With Rhinebeck Bank" coffee mug, the "Now That's What I Call Merry Christmas" CD, along with other gifts, A N D . . .
EVERYONE in attendance received movie tickets to see either "Elf" or "Santa Buddies" this Saturday at the Roosevelt Cinema in Hyde Park.
Our "Joe on the Road" visits will resume in the Spring. I'll give you lots of notice!
I am so grateful to the staff members at the many McDonald's locations we visited on this past tour, who made us all feel so welcome! Specifically, a big THANK YOU! to the McDonald's on Route 9 in Poughkeepsie, the one on Main Street in Poughkeepsie, Route 9 in Hyde Park, Rt. 44 in Pleasant Valley, Rt. 9 in Fishkill, Rt. 55 Lagrangeville, Rt. 9 in Wappingers Falls, Rt 9W in Highland, and Rt. 376 in Wappingers Falls.
Thanks everyone for all the fun! It was a pleasure spending our visits together!
