This year's Auction was a smashing success, primarily due to the 20 volunteers who assisted us in a myriad of ways. Special thanks to...

Dick Downey (Boyd Coatings Research Co.), Chuck Randall (Randall Properties), Mary Beth Parker (Citizens Bank), Architect Allen Boemer, David Morey (Morey's Tavern), Dave Rykbost (Dave's Landscape Management), Mary Holtorf (Art & Soul), Gavin & Cathy Livingstone (Bryley Systems) and Dennis & Carol DeMaria (Hudson Bookkeeping).

Additionally, Middlesex Savings Bank provided a contingent of eight volunteers which included Tina Saulnier, Brandon Liberis, Lisa Lawton, Tyler Ogden, Paula Copley, Nevene Reynolds, Susan Mason and Marlene Thomas.


As temperatures still hover around 40 degrees, it's hard to believe that the 21st Annual Hudson Fest, slated for Saturday, June 2nd, is right around the corner. We are currently seeking sponsors, vendors and volunteers to assist us on the day. We are also looking for members willing to donate large equipment, etc. for the Truck Zoo on South St. Interested parties should contact Sarah at sarahcressy@assabetvalleychamber.org.

Member Susan Getgood of Getgood Strategic Marketing, will be presenting her Leads Generation Workshop for the Middlesex West Chamber on April 23rd. If you missed it the 1st time around, you can register to attend by calling 978.263.0010.

This Friday, Friday the 13th in fact, your Chamber is hosting a "Meet the New Editor Meeting" from 8:15 to 9:15 am, at Citizens Bank Community Room in downtown Hudson. Not only will members have an opportunity to meet the new Enterprise-Sun Editor Cathy Buday, but Liz Banks, local editor of the MetroWest Daily News will be there as well.

Ms. Buday will give a brief presentation explaining both her background and her general vision, and the balance of the meeting will encompass Q & A and general discussion.

While the meeting is free for members and government officials, registration is required. So, please let us know whether or not you plan to attend by noon on Thursday! Coffee is provided courtesy of Frick & Frack Enterprises of Stow.
