Poughkeepsie South Rotary Club president Cristina Boryk and vice-president Mike Mullaney join the cohosts at RadioRotary to tell mostly about the Hudson Valley Auto Show, now it its 10thyear, and also about another event sponsored by their club in conjunction with Wappingers Rotary, A Cup of the Valley, a coffee and tea show now in its third year. The Auto Show is much like the new-model auto show in New York City, except that this array of new cars from eleven local dealers is at the Nesheiwat Convention Center (formerly mid-Hudson Civic Center) in downtown Poughkeepsie and is free. In addition to the new cars on display, there is entertainment for the whole family, including face-painting and balloon animals for children to enjoy while their parents contemplate about 60 or the latest Cadillacs, Toyotas, Hondas, Fords, Nissans, and so forth. A Cup of the Valley, a few weeks later, is at the Marriott Pavilion of the Culinary Institute of America, focuses on varieties of imported coffees and teas but also has various sweet treats to enjoy. There is an entrance fee that covers the food, music, and fun, including a Japanese Tea Ceremony and tea-leaf reading. Proceeds from both events are used to support community charities such as the Miles of Hope for breast cancer, the Poughkeepsie Children’s Home, Rebuilding America, and local parks.
