Thank you to the Newburgh Preservation Association for the award they presented me with last night for “Outstanding Service to Preservation in Newburgh”. It was really great meeting so many of you who loyally follow the blog and who also shared so many kind words. Writing this blog really just makes me happy, but it was nice to receive a little recognition for the hard work that it takes to make it happen. It motivates me to try to make 2013 even better! Thank You.
