The Word Around Town... Letters to our Editor

Zachary Tompkins Memorial Fund

Mr. Lathrop and I took part in making a promotional piece for Hudson Cable Television on behalf of the Zachary Tompkins Memorial Fund dedicated to raising monies to build the Zachary Tompkins Memorial Football Stadium. Fellow Committee members; Michael Roberts, president of the Hudson Litchfield Bears Organization; and Zach’s parents, Mike and Necole Tompkins, joined us as Hudson School Committee member and HCTV Committee member Lee Lavoie interviewed us. Many fundraising events will be taking place in order to raise sufficient funds to build the stadium without having to rely on tax dollars to do so. We have been fortunate to have several trades people, within our community, contact Mr. Lathrop offering their services and donations in order to achieve our goal. The network of volunteers and contributors grows on a daily basis. I was made aware that a 5K road race would be taking place on Friday, August 27, from Alvirne High School. Nicky challenged me to run in the race and, though she had planned to

work with the race organizers, she stated that she would race along side with me if I would do it. I accepted her challenge, though I always hated running. This will be an interesting challenge for me as I will be 67 at the time of the race, but I am up to the challenge. I will begin training in July, as I need to shave an inch or two from my waist and learn to get into the rhythm. The purpose of this letter is to appeal to our

fellow citizens and our friends in the business community to make this all worthwhile for me and to help sponsor me in this race. I ask that you give whatever amount you can afford, no matter how small, as it will all add up in the end. I want to thank those who have already sent me checks or dropped off cash for this worthy cause for our community. Please make your checks payable to: Zachary

Tompkins Memorial Fund and mail them to me at 10 Rita Avenue, Hudson, NH 03051. You may also drop them off at our business, Roger’s, at 95 River Road, Route 3A, Hudson. You have my undying gratitude for anything

you can contribute, and I promise I will finish this race because, like many of us, we will do whatever is necessary to see Zach’s dream of a stadium being built for our Community and in his memory.

everyone who participated in the Auction at Old Home Days! Together, we helped to raise over $1,000 to benefit two great organizations—the Hudson Special Olympics Team and the Zack Tompkins Foundation. Both of these groups will continue to fund activities and events aimed towards children and young adults in the town of Hudson. Whether you donated items, helped at the auction, or went home with some great deals, your help and support are truly appreciated! Thanks again for “stepping up to the plate” and making this year’s auction a huge success! See you next time!

Horn or Bass In the Republican Primary in September, voters will have a clear choice: does one vote for a Republican that four years ago campaigned in a losing effort by stating that he was not a Republican, but an independent, or does one vote for a new voice—a new choice for fiscal responsibility? Someone that will represent New Hampshire values? Does one vote for a career

politician and part of the problem, or does one vote for someone that is really a Republican? Charles Bass is a career politician and part of the problem; when he ‘represented’ us, he voted for high deficit spending, and now he says he wants to cut spending. He also voted against the wishes of his constituents involving a 2nd Amendment issue; he voted “his conscience.” Jennifer Horn will represent us—from working to make us energy-independent, ending wasteful government spending, securing the borders, to returning integrity to Congress. She is what Washington needs; a new voice, not a member of the good-old-boy club. So, join me and vote for Jennifer Horn. Also join me in voting for Kelly Ayotte for U.S. Senator and Jack Kimball for Governor.

The Hudson School District and the Goffstown Bus Services (our transportation provider) would like to invite all kindergarten students and their parents to take a bus ride before the start of school.

When: Monday, August 30 Where: Library Street School, Nottingham

West School, and Hills Garrison School Time: 1-3 p.m. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this opportunity for your incoming student(s), please feel free to contact either Jerry Sirois, Goffstown Bus Services, at 886-7015; or Kathy Vaillancourt, Hudson School District, at 886-1258.

Terry Dakin for Hillsborough County Commissioner

It is my privilege to support Terry Dakin in the Republican primary for County Commissioner, which includes Nashua, Hollis, Hudson, and Pelham. I have known Terry for a number of years as a small business owner. I also own and operate a family business in Nashua. Terry shares my views of smaller government and reducing the size and expense of government. Terry will work tirelessly on all of our behalf to stop the spiraling spending in Hillsborough County government. Therefore, please vote for County Commissioner on September 14.

Chesnulevich for winning $100 worth of scratch tickets and J. Kunyan for winning two tickets to the NASCAR races.

Thank you to everyone who visited the Hudson Democratic Committee booth at Old Home Days. As always, it was a pleasure to meet our neighbors and discuss common interests and concerns. We truly appreciate the opportunity to introduce Democratic candidates and present their messages.

Congratulations to Sylvia Gale, who won our

50/50 raffle. Kudos to all the wonderful people who worked so hard to make the weekend so successful. Very special thanks to the Hudson Historical Society for the pleasure and pride that you’ve promoted in Hudson for so many years, and especially in the last few years at Old Home Days. Well done, Hudson!

Hudson Old Home Days a Success

Another Old Home Days is over and what a success it was for the Hudson Lions. Each year, we try to improve on the parking, and this year, I think we did. This would not have been possible without the help of the many Hudson Lions, Litchfield Lion Matt, Christie, and Wayne. Additional help from Bob Dufour, Jeff Rodgers, and Scott Christopher, all non-Lions, made Saturday evening run smooth after teaming up with the rest of the Lions. It is a pleasure working with the members of the Hudson Historical Society, who had the task of coordinating and putting together everything to make Old Home Days fun. Plans are already underway for the planning of next year’s event. Most of all, I would like to thank the patrons

who supported the Hudson Lions by donating $2 each day to park. Without you, we would not have been successful. With the exception of the dust – I would much

rather have the dust than the mud – the weather assisted in making the weekend perfect.

Hudson Old Home Days - Thank You to All Involved

As the chairman of the board of directors for the Historical Society, I want to extend our sincere gratitude to the many volunteers who made Hudson’s annual Old Home Days another successful one. As a participant myself, I know the amount of time and energy that must be put into this popular town event. If not for your volunteering, our town wouldn’t be able to boast of this family-oriented, fun-filled weekend. Thank you for giving your personal time to enrich the lives of others. I would also like to thank all the people who came out and enjoyed the great weather on the weekend with us. Without you, this event would not be the same.
