We wish our readers of all faiths and backgrounds a wonderful Holiday Season, whether Christmas, Hanukkah or whatever your holiday heritage is.
We are so thankful for our customers and readers and the support and encouragement we are receiving from them. As we expect to surpass 5,000 viewers in the next 24 hours, and that is just in the first 3 weeks of December, there is still so much more to come. I plan to continue sharing all of the breaking hourly and daily news in the coming month, and we are busy making a few minor changes to make the website flow a little better, and add a Premium Full Access Subscription button that will offer numerous fun and interesting additional advantages (stay tuned).
Each day I am getting more excited about developing a Podcast, hopefully by Mid-Spring, that will include interviews with our area's small business community members, officials, environmental advocates and experts, zoom meetings, and representatives from our local extraordinarily successful sports community, several teams which by the way went to both State and National Finals this year. We will also have live event coverage. I am also expanding our Art Prints presence on the website and looking forward to it having a physical presence and sales in our area's art community as well. A LOT of work...equals a LOT to look forward to.
Top of the 2023 news agenda will be announcements of the developing Schunnemunk Rail Trail, which is slated to begin next month. We are also very eager to hear about the County's new plans for the former Camp LaGuardia site, which they are hoping to develop as a new County Park, and of course we will keep you in the loop of the 6,000 sq. ft. new Senior Center in Blooming Grove at Lasser Park, foundation and rebar support stage in process and looking forward to arrival of building sections as weather permits in the coming months.
Not to be forgotten will be events at Fulton Square, Vern Allen Park, Trestle Valley Equestrian Center and Parkland, along with events in Chester, Goshen, Cornwall, and Newburgh
We also appreciate the opportunity to share some "Breaking regional stories" from Hank Gross at the Mid-Hudson News, which are the hottest and most timely stories in New York press, and I am glad for the opportunity to share any of our important relevant stories, as well as any important breaking regional stories I come across, with him in return. Between the two press resources, we now have the most extensive local and regional coverage in New York.
These are just a few of the coming attractions from your friends at Orange County Courier Journal (www.courierjournalocny) .
So, Here's To 2023!!! ....THANK YOU!!! -more hard work, fun, and blessings with our many readers, good friends and supporters.
