Welcome Hudson Valley! This is Conor Walsh, host of In Touch, Townsquare Media of the Hudson Valley’s Award-Winning Public Affairs and Issues program.  

This week on In Touch, we have Fund Development & Volunteer Coordinator for Mid-Hudson Love INC, Jewel Ratzlaff. Load up on sweets ahead of the Super Bowl and Valentine’s Day because Love INC is hosting their 16th Annual Cookie Walk on February 10th with over 800 dozen home-baked gourmet cookies. The event is from 9am to 2pm; however, get there early, because they have run out of cookies before 2pm in the past. Not just that, but we dive into the expansive work that Love INC does to help individuals in need in the Hudson Valley through their volunteer programs, classes, and more. 

We invite you to join us and listen to a previously recorded conversation between Jewel and myself here on In Touch. And keep scrolling to see pictures of last year's Cookie Walk!

This has been this week’s edition of IN TOUCH, the award-winning public affairs and issues program that runs across Townsquare Media of the Hudson Valley radio stations. We want to give a big thank you to Jewel Ratzlaff. For more on Love INC, please visit https://www.mid-hudsonloveinc.org/ And keep scrolling to see pictures of last year's Cookie Walk!
