Last Weeks Program

Mike DiTullo from “Mid-Hudson Patterns For Progress” gave a most informative narrative on the objectives being pursued by Mid-Hudson now that the 21st Century has arrived. “The Global Hudson Valley Initiatives” are now connecting the Hudson Valley with the rest of the world. Mike’s recitation was backed by a great slide program, as well as excellent handout material. This was a “class ‘A’ presentation”.


Phil Brillante’s “safety tip for the week”  centered on “Extreme Tape”. This tape is great for all repairs, electrical, etc., and is very safe in preventing injury, as well as properly repairing the items it is used on. Phil also revealed that Wendy Motilese, formerly in “Interact program”, is now in Baghdad guarding Saddam Hussein.
