FDR was quoted as saying, “All that is within me cries out to go back to my home on the Hudson River.” When you visit the Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site it is easy to see why he said that. The home (Springwood), the library and the Henry A.Wallace Visitor and Education Center welcome, educate and inspire the thousands of visitors who come to this beautiful spot in Hyde Park, New York.
Whenever I am given the opportunity to present there as our 32nd President it is a thrill and an honor. That was certainly the case for President’s Day 2018. The presentation was sold out in four days (a record) and the audience was enthusiastic and engaged. Their questions for the President at the end of the presentation were intelligent and inspired.
Franceska Macsali-Urbin, Scott Rector and Bill Urbin at the site are wonderful people to work with and true professionals. I look forward to seeing them again and going “back to my home on the Hudson River.
