Letter to the editor 4, Nov. 3, 2016
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in the planning, preparation, and execution of the October 29 Hudson Town Halloween Party. It is surprising how much planning and effort is involved in organizing this three-hour event, which could not have taken place but for the help of 40-plus volunteers, especially the 37 exceptional volunteers from Westwood Junior and their wrangler, Janice Quinn. Thanks to Sarah Matthey Bonetti for Fortune-Fairy duties and Olivier Matthey for the lovely photos. Thanks also goes to Sandra Bebbington, Mike Block, Karen Burgan, and Olga Bindon for the loan of assorted pirate-related props, to Daniel Norman and his team at the IGA for candy-and-cupcake-related help and pricing, and to Stéphane and Nathalie at Les Serres Vaudreuil (aka Daoust) for the generous donation of 13 dozen pumpkin spice donuts.
Lastly, a big thank you to the Hudson Parks & Recreation Team who did so much to make this event a success. To the over 150 kids and their parents who attended Saturday's event, we hope you had a great time, and look forward to seeing you again next year!
