   Board of Directors                both the Hyde Park Community and our tourists by providing good honest service. He is
        Robert Delarm                the local Rep for Triple AAA. He enhances the employment opportunities in Hyde Park and

                                              The selection committee, composed of past Award recipients, cited many wonderful
         John Paxton                 reasons behind their selection which included the recent additions to the property,
      Paxton Tanner Gallery          rehabilitation of existing buildings, new landscaping including the beautiful stone walls
       Timothy Millard               and installation of 1930s industrial-style lighting. The group also praised the warm and
   Sound of Life Radio Network       welcoming atmosphere at the site; one enjoyed both by citizens of Hyde Park and by the
                                     thousands of tourists who visit throughout the year.

The Young Chef Academy owner, Nina Doyle, spearheaded “The Great Cookie
Bake-Off” this past October in support of our troops. The Young Chefs teamed
up with the Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce, Coppola’s of Hyde Park, Pough-
keepsie Moose Club #904, and Anderson Center for Autism to bake 6,000 home-
made cookies. Included in the cookie deliveries were note cards created by chil-
dren and adults of Anderson Center. Disposable cameras were also sent to the
troops so they could take photos and mail them back to Hyde Park. This event
received international news coverage and spawned much interest in similar events

“Tourism In Your Own Back Yard”           For seven years, the Hyde Park Cham-
                                        ber of Commerce has been sponsoring
                                        local students’ visits to the FDR site. This
                                        year the Hyde Park School District was
                                        able to send all its fourth graders. The
                                        children are exposed to age-appropriate
                                        educational programs, designed and led
                                        by Jeff Urbin at the Wallace Center. Dur-
                                        ing their lunch period, the students are
                                        welcomed by Chamber Ambassador Vol-
                                        unteers. They are treated to free ice
                                        cream that is donated by Jon Maeder’s
                                        Dairy Queen on Rte. 9. Also, each stu-
