The Hudson Valley is filled with many brave men and women who help keep us safe and protect us. I can only imagine what a day in their job looks like, but sometimes a police officer's workday is filled with fun.

Bright Horizons at Fishkill is a daycare in the Hudson Valley and they were recently teaching their kids about the community and all about different community workers (what a good idea and lesson for young minds). Officer Mullaney from the East Fishkill Police Department recently visited Bright Horizons and taught the kids about the importance of calling 911. That is an extremely important lesson and knowing how to call 911 is crucial for anyone. However, there was even more that he did...

Officer Mullaney also gave the students a chance to explore his police car. A few kids even got to sit in the driver seat and it looks like they were already naturals behind the wheel. What young kid doesn't want to do that?

Thank you to Officer Mullaney and Bright Horizons for coming together and teaching such an important lesson. Are there any other lessons that you think should be taught to young learners? Are there other community workers who you think should visit the daycare? Share your answers with us on the station app.

How about we talk more about the Hudson Valley? Here's a cool new place to check out and some scenic drives to take:

Sneak Peek at Highly Anticipated Hudson Valley Museum

A New Museum Will Open In The Catskills Featuring Hollywood's Biggest Stars

The Borscht Belt Museum will open in Ulster County,NY. This allows for the history of the Borscht Belt to carry on in the Hudson Valley.

While celebrities in the past visited the Borscht Belt region, there will be more involved in the community when this museum opens in 2025.

Fran Drescher And Fellow Celebrities Will Sit On A Hudson Valley Museum Board

Fran Drescher is a celebrity that almost everyone likes. Known for her role as Fran Fine in The Nanny, the world couldn't help but laugh at her jokes, statements, and relatable interactions with other members of the show.

According to Yahoo News,

Fran Drescher isn't the only celebrity who will be in the Catskills.

"The museum’s list of advisory board members includes Fran Drescher, Harvey Fierstein, Judd Hirsch, Robert Klein and Richard Lewis — a fitting cast for a place where some of the nation’s top comedians got their start."

Have You Ever Heard Of The Borscht Belt?

"For generations of Jews in the New York metropolitan area, there was no doubt about the location of those “mountains.” Less than 100 miles from the cramped, sweltering tenements of Manhattan’s Lower East Side was a lush patchwork of forests, farms and bustling rural towns that hosted a summertime population of nearly a million urban strivers hungry for the clean air, fresh food and familiar camaraderie that even a garment worker or cab driver could afford."

Spending the summer in the Catskills sounds ideal.

"From the turn of the 20th century to the 1970s, more than 1,000 hotels, bungalow colonies, summer camps and boarding houses dotted the Catskill Mountains of southern New York. At first they came by train, and later, by bus and car along The Quickway, now known as Route 17."

Some may know this area or region to be called Solomon County, Jewish Alps or The Mountains. The Borscht Belt was also another term that most people remember the most.

 How Can You Visit The Borscht Belt Museum In Ellenville, NY?

I took a day trip to the Borscht Belt Museum in Ellenville, NY. Upon arrival, I was greeted by a humorous sign stating "Come in and schmooze, free admission".

When I entered the museum, I was greeted by a volunteer. I was able to walk around and see memorabilia from the different resorts of the Borscht Belt region and community.

I was also told that this museum is a pop up for now, they will continue to change the set up as well. 2025 marks the year that the Borscht Belt Museum will officially open.
