Hudson Resident to Walk Through the Night to Raise Awareness for Suicide Prevention

On June 26 to 27, Lyndsay Kilgour of Hudson will participate in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Out of the Darkness Overnight, an 18-mile walk from sunset to sunrise, to raise much-needed funds and awareness for suicide prevention. Having lost two friends to suicide in the past

10 years and having family members and friends who have suffered from depression, this cause means a lot to Kilgour.

“I’ve always wanted to do

something to honor the friends I’ve lost, and to get closure for their deaths,” says Kilgour. “I feel as though this is something I can do to make a difference and get the closure I need.” In the U.S., close to one million people make a suicide attempt each year, and every 16 minutes, someone dies by suicide each year. Proceeds from the Out of the Darkness Overnight support a variety of programs, including distribution of the Foundation’s new educational film on teen

depression titled More Than Sad: Teen Depression

( and the accompanying film for teachers that helps them recognize suicide warning signs and risk factors, as well as how to

refer students for help. Both films aim to reduce teen suicide by addressing the leading cause— depression.

According to scientific research, more than

90 percent of people who die by suicide have an underlying mental disorder at the time of their death, most often depression, bipolar disorder, and/or substance abuse. Suicide doesn’t discriminate. It affects all age groups and socio- economic backgrounds. It is the fourth leading cause of death among adults 18 to 65 years old, and the third leading cause of death among teens and young adults. Individuals age 65 and older account for 16 percent of all suicide deaths. “Participants in The Overnight agree to raise at least $1,000 each to walk; however, my personal goal is to raise $1,500,” said Kilgour. To help her reach her fundraising goal or to get more information about The Overnight, call 888-TheOvernight (888-843-6837), or visit www. A car wash will also be held at the 7-Eleven on Central St. in Hudson to raise money for this event on June 19 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Hudson recently celebrated Volunteer Recognition Week with an ice cream social hosted by the Hudson Board of Selectmen, who recently proclaimed the week of May 3-7 as Volunteer Recognition Week. “Whereas the Town of Hudson volunteers

are active participants from all professions, striving to enhance the quality of life for the residents of Hudson, the Town of Hudson would like to recognize and thank all volunteers of the Police, Fire, Library, Town Hall, Recreation, and all Town boards, committees, and commissions,” states the

proclamation. “This is one of my pleasures. We get to recognize all the town of Hudson volunteers,” stated Board of Selectmen Chairman Ken Massey. For the past several years, Hudson has recognized its volunteers by hosting an ice cream social at the Community Center. This year, the social had 120 sign-ups of those who confirmed that they would be attending the event. Hudson volunteers, through their efforts, contribute countless hours of time and talents to provide a sense of community,

Hudson Selectmen Create Building Committee for Senior Center

by Doug Robinson

At the May 25 Hudson Board of Selectmen’s meeting, the selectmen voted in favor of the creation of a building committee formed to support and guide the processes for the erection of a Senior Center, which will be located at Benson’s Park. “I would like to put something in front of the DOT [Department of Transportation],” commented Selectmen’s Chairman Ken Massey in forming the building committee, which would consist of five people: two selectmen (Maddox and Massey), Pat Nichols, Lucille Boucher, and

Town Engineer Gary Webster. Seniors have dedicated “up to $15,000” for the first phase of creation of the Senior Center. “I have met with the Counsel on the Aging, and they

voted unanimously up to $15,000,” said Chairman Massey.

According to Chairman Massey, the same architectural firm that was hired two years ago would be used to provide the town with appropriate drawings and costs to execute the project.

and are knowledgeable and project a positive image of Hudson, continues the proclamation. Thanks to the generous donation of ice cream from Countrybrook Farms, over 120 town volunteers celebrated their service to Hudson at the ice cream social at no cost to the taxpayer. “It was really great to see over 120

people,” commented Chairman Massey. “Thanks to Countrybrook Farms, it made a difference.”

I am a friendly 3 year-old black and white

male cat. Though I may look at little worse for wear because I am missing an eye, I am fully healed from surgery and ready to meet my new family. I am very affectionate and will

come if you call my name, but I am still pretty independent and won’t beg for your

attention. I would make a great lap cat, and I like to play with other cats and with toys too! In addition, I recently visited Laurel Place, a local nursing facility with the shelter’s pet

therapy volunteers. The residents there loved me! Though I was a little apprehensive at

first, I loved being patted, scratched under my chin and cuddled. Please come visit me and the other pets at the shelter.

You may have guessed from my name, I am a very talkative cat who loves to meow! I am an independent 6 year-old black and white female. Although I don’t like to play all that much, I love to be petted and

brushed. Belly rubs are my favorite! I’ll roll over to let you rub my belly and will

become putty in your hands. I don’t look for much attention, but I am very friendly. The adoption counselors say I am easy going and would be happy in busy household. I was found stray last year and I am

patiently waiting to be adopted. Like all of the pets here at the shelter, I am

neutered, micro-chipped, and am up to date on all of my vaccines.
