All smiles under the landmark barn, three generations of the Aird family, Barbara (centre), her daughters, Mary and Betsy, Mary's daughter, Katherine Koberstein, and her friend, Anne Vincent, did a wonderful job of serving up hamburgers to all at the NOVA Hudson BBQ at Finnegan's on Sunday.
In what is now an annual tradition, and as a way of thanking some 200 volunteers and supporters who make its services possible throughout the year, NOVA Hudson treated them to a burger barbecue at Finnegan's this past Sunday, August 27, served up by three generations of the Aird family, owners of the landmark flea market.
Enjoying the afternoon under clear blue skies, a rarity in the region this summer, were NOVA's office staff and many volunteers representing the Adult Day Centre, Boutique Nova, Foot Clinic, as well as drivers and, of course, the nurses.
Said Peter Lang, president of the board of directors who, together with Ross Tellier, husband of executive director, Judy Tellier, actually cooked the burgers, “NOVA Hudson, which has been helping people in the Hudson area since 1956, simply could not operate as it does without the support of all these people and this is our way of showing our appreciation for their dedicated volunteerism.”
