by Len Lathrop

When Radio was King, played

out right down to the hand- crafted radios on every table, through which the emcee, Mr. Joe Caspar, introduced and entertained. Throughout the concert, various radio personalities appeared to address the crowd, including Emma O’Rourke as Mae West, Nathanial Morse and Marisa

Te Concert Band

And what a show it was. The Jazz Band was absolutely outstanding, performing such classic songs as “In the Mood,” “Take the ‘A’ Train,” “One O’Clock Jump,” “Stompin’ at the Savoy,” “Little Brown Jug,” and

“Cotton Tail.” The Concert Band brought proud and sentimental tears to many an eye with their patriotic “American Patrol,” “The Homefront (Musical Memories from WWII),”

Together, We Make a Difference

by Lynne Ober

The Greater Hudson Chamber of Commerce held their 41st Annual Awards Dinner on March 30, with the theme “Together, We Make a Difference.” The evening kicked off with a welcome by

Steven Forkey, who served as Director and the evening’s Master of Ceremonies. Then, the Hudson Fire Department Relief Association presented the colors and Firefighter Mike Armand sang the Star Spangled Banner. Governor John Lynch was the first speaker, and he talked about the state of New Hampshire’s economy, how the budget is currently in the red, and how efforts are underway to balance the budget. With more heavy rain falling outside, he also talked about the flooding that was occurring all over the state. Although he couldn’t stay for the entire evening’s presentation, he did stay to hear Forkey talk about the Chamber’s support for SB 489 (the bill for the convention center that would be built in Hudson), should this bill pass, and about how the Chamber and its businesses believe such a convention center would provide jobs and lead the way toward economic recovery. Jennifer

Horn,

candidate for U.S. Congress, talked about why she is running and what she believed she could contribute if elected. Horn, fiscally conservative, is running her campaign on the need to reduce the federal deficit and

the need to change the way Washington conducts its business. She believes the future of America depends upon us making some wise, fiscal changes.

Jim Bender, Candidate for the U.S. Senate, also

spoke. The thrust of his campaign is to return jobs and economic growth to New Hampshire. Bringing a backpack full of reams of paper, Bender started placing them on the podium. First, it was 1,000 sheets (or two reams) to show how the national health bill started out. He spoke about Congressman Paul Hodes announcing that he didn’t intend to read the bill. Bender said that he had and pledged to read all bills if elected so that he could make educated votes. By the time Bender finished, he was standing next to a stack of nearly 4,000 pages, representing the height of the health bill as recently passed by Congress. Matibo’s Salon, formerly Baron Hair Design,

won Small Business of the Year. Not only do they offer Boston spa services within our community, but they sponsor and support a wide variety of community events. They have supported charities and school teams and activities.
