Congratulations to Hudson Family Chiropractic. They will be relocating to their new office at 7 Tower St. in Hudson on June 23rd.

Summer is finally here. The air conditioners are buzzing on our Main Streets and many adorn sandals and shorts. However, before our brains switch into "summer mode," we encourage you to take advantage of two upcoming seminars. We promise that both are well worth the $15 admittance fee.

This Thursday (6.22), in conjunction with The Capital Benefits Group, we are hosting a seminar on MA Healthcare Reform featuring Brian Wheelan, Asst. Secr. of Health and Human Services. This seminar, held at Clock Tower Place, will help create a "road map" for anyone who offers health insurance to their employees. Registration deadline is Wednesday, June 21st at noon.

Exactly one week later,on Thursday, June 29th, our Hudson Savings Bank Seminar Series presents Customer Service Pain Points with Lewis Consulting. This is a perfect seminar for anyone that interfaces with customers, and will provide hands-on tools to negotiate even the most difficult of situations. Sandy Lewis promises that it will be informative, fun and short. Attendance is limited to 24 participants. Registration deadline is June 28th at noon.
