The television show ‘La Petite Séduction’ with its 1 million French Canadian viewers has extended the hand of friendship to our small predominately Anglophone community. Such a gracious gesture cannot go unanswered.
There will be a general information meeting hosted by the CBC Thursday, September 24, at 7 p.m. at the St. Thomas church hall, 413 Main Road, to which all are welcome. On Saturday, September 26, at 7: 30 a.m. we will need a crowd with colorful umbrellas (if you don’t have one, one will be supplied) in front of the Hudson Village Theatre, 28 Wharf Road (there will be no parking at the train station) and on Sunday morning, September 27, at 7:30 a.m. we need a crowd of picnickers with baskets, blankets and food at Jack Layton Park (400 Halcro).
On Sunday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. we also need a selection of interesting animals (dogs, cats, goldfish, snakes, lizards, pigs etc.) for a talent show. Your goldfish could show how great he swims. At 4:15 p.m. on Sunday, a crowd is needed in the back yard of the Auberge Willow Inn (208 Main Road) for the final shoot. This is an important event and a wonderful opportunity to show the rest of Quebec what an interesting, beautiful and friendly town Hudson is.
Residents from Hudson and throughout the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region are encouraged to take part in this historic event even if it means getting up a little earlier on a Saturday or Sunday morning.
It will be great fun and everyone will get to relive the fun and share in their 15 minutes of fame when they watch themselves and their neighbors on television at a later date.
