For those of you that were thinking, “Hey, what ever happened with the Peekskill Weekend Getaway?” Well we’ve picked a winner and we think she’s pretty darn cool so we’ve decided to share a few things about her. Her name is Anne and she’s a filmmaker and photographer based in New York City. Her work explores themes of endeavor, adventure, and self-expression. When Anne’s not hard at work making films, she’s playing with her dog nephew Gus, one of the cutest Frenchies we ever did see. Here’s a really cute picture of Gus so you can get all teary-eyed like we did.


Other hobbies include reading, cycling, and exploring upstate. Hey Anne, looks like you’re in luck! You’ll be exploring Peekskill on us. For those of you who are a little bitter, don’t even stress about it. Our newest contest, the Dutchess County Getaway, is already underway. Click, click, click away and you could be our next winner! As for Anne, congrats! Enjoy Peekskill!
