This is not a meetup event per se, but I'm announcing it here in case some of the meetup members would like to attend. This is one that NYC members can get to directly from the Metro North Poughkeepsie train station. (However, there is a 1 and 1/4 mile walk from the train station across the bridge to the other side where we will be).
The Little Brays of Sunshine will be joining Santa and his sleigh on the Walkway Over the Hudson for pictures and to enjoy the view on what will most likely be a brisk Fall day. The donkeys will be decked out in their holiday blankets and hats. Hot chocolate and refreshments will be available for sale by Walkway vendors at the entrance to the Walkway.
Note: We may end up walking across the bridge at the end if there are people and donkeys willing. However, most of the event will be gathering on the bridge for photos and visiting with the donkeys. Of course, you are welcome to break off and do whatever you wish.
We use the rail trails frequently for this meetup, so this is our way of supporting their efforts to provide and maintain them.
