The Catskill-Hudson Chapter welcomed Hudson Valley FCU’s VP of Marketing David Dirks as the chapter’s new president during an event in Newburgh on Tuesday. Dirks has replaced Hudson Heritage CEO Michael Ciriello as chapter president.
More than 70 chapter members, vendors and volunteers attended the event. The guest speaker was Col. Denise Donnell, commander of the 105th Airlift Wing at Stewart Air National Guard Base in Newburgh.
During the event, the chapter also celebrated their successful 2017 Food for Vets Campaign, which collected just over one ton of food—the chapter’s largest donation to date—for the Castle Point Veterans Food Pantry.
