Lincoln, an 11-month-old Labradoodle, is turbo-charged and ready for action. He is eager to please but needs guidance and direction with the basics, like walking on leash and greeting people with four paws on the ground. Obedience classes with positive reinforcement would go a long way in helping with this. Lincoln will require lots of exercise and a fenced yard. He was given up because he barked too much, so no apartments or condos. If you're an experienced guardian who understands high-energy breeds and are looking for a loyal companion, fill out the form and ask for Lincoln. For more information on Lincoln or any of the other dogs available for adoption, go to www.animatch.ca.

Included in the Town of Hudson Festival of Light is a sculpture-candle by local artist Marcel Braitstein. Translated from Hebrew the word ‘Shammash’ means a servant-flame.  The sole purpose of the flame is instigating other flames.  Symbolically, Braitstein’s sculpture titled Shammash2019 represents the servant-candle whose only job this holiday season is to ignite the eight lights of the menorah, which means candelabra in English.  

A shammash candle is no stranger to the citizens of Hudson. It came to Hudson in 2011 as one part of a Chanukah menorah. Its arrival in Hudson was as the centrepiece of the first municipal public Chanukah menorah to be lit in the Vaudreuil-...
