Although, with the help of a benefactor, we gave it another year to see if we could get back to pre-Covid levels, we were unsuccessful. So unfortunately, this time the retirement is official. We just want to thank everyone who ever took a ride aboard Stella or took her picture as she passed them on the street. We were very successful in putting smiles on people’s faces, most especially children, and that made it all worthwhile.
We also want to thank everyone who helped us on our journey, to many to list, but especially our drivers who all treated Stella with kid gloves, and the folks at Hudson Valley Charter who took such good care of Stella enabling her to perform admirably, with the exception of a few little blips, for twelve years.
We will miss you all.
