        • Volunteers Wanted!

          We are seeking volunteers to assist with two tasks. First, we are almost ready to unveil a new web site and are looking for a few interested parties to review the product before launch. This process will take about two hours and can be done in the comfort of your own business or home.

          Secondly, we are looking for a few volunteers to serve on our Hudson Fest Brainstorming Committee to breathe some new life into this 22 year old war horse. One primary issue to be discussed is whether to move this program to South St. We anticipate two or three meetings.
