This is now a popular post on our Middle Main Facebook page, "Out with the old and in with the new! Congratulations to AmeriCorps VISTAs Anthony Galazzo and Hilary Sparling for completing their terms of service at Hudson River Housing! VISTAs Nora Culhane and Dylan Hurley have committed to another year of service with the Middle Main Initiative alongside new AmeriCorps members Ted Marrinan and Anna Hermann".
(new and old VISTAs)
It is bittersweet saying goodbye to Anthony and Hilary - however I know they are moving on to exciting new jobs and starting their lives! This was an amazing year and it is due to the spectacular experience I had with this fearsome foursome!
I am happy to welcome the two new VISTAs to the office and even more excited that I have Dylan staying on with me for another year. We also have the treat of being joined by Ramona and Lindsay again!
To be honest, I did not feel like I was done with my work here - there are so many projects in the pipeline and so many more people to meet! I am most looking forward to Dia de los Muertos and to the long awaited opening of the Poughkeepsie Underwear Factory!
I kept my desk (Dylan took Hilary's).
