students offered Alvirne dramatists a wonderful audience, this was one of several recent Class Act initiatives to foster greater exposure and appreciation of the arts among elementary students and a chance to give back to the community. One Nottingham West teacher emphasized, “Our


younger kids just loved this fun-filled show and so idolized these Alvirne students. We were thrilled to have them here!” Class Act’s exceptional production of the classic southern fable, Wiley and the Hairy Man, appeared on the national stage on June 23 in the Howell Theatre. The show featured Sami Weis (Wiley), Jon Adams (Hairy Man), Teresa Quintanilla (Mama), Shawna Holt (Wiley’s dog), and a terrific supporting ensemble. The cast exemplified the play’s theme, “Believing in yourself is the strongest magic, ” before a full audience of fellow thespians, theatre educators, and professionals. “I actually learned what believing in myself meant in


Nebraska,” shared Alvirne sophomore Sami Weis, who remarkably filled in late to play the lead role of Wiley prior to Nationals. “I had to just let go, try to have fun, and do my best.”


In addition to the Wiley performance, Class Act’s


two teams, “Technical Difficulties” and “Unplugged,” competed in the national Tech Challenge, placing 9th and 11th in the nation, respectively. Class Act Thespians also earned ratings of “Excellent” in the National Individual Events Showcase in the categories of Monologues and Short Film. In addition, students performed in College and Scholarship Auditions, while others served as film crew to create master recordings of Music Theatre International’s productions. “The talent and energy were phenomenal in


Nebraska; it inspired us all to go home and do bigger and better things,” stated an awed, first-time AHS chaperone who was also “impressed by how supportive everyone was of each other.” “The International Thespian Festival 2010 was an

exhilarating, exhausting, and educational adventure that broadened perspectives, unlocked possibilities, and proved to be a life-altering experience for students and chaperones alike,” judiciously declared Jennifer LaFrance, long-time Alvirne English teacher and Class Act Advisor. She also gave kudos to the Hudson School Board for their on-going support and special thanks to the Alvirne Trustees for their most generous help, which enabled the Nebraska trip. LaFrance sincerely concluded, “Class Act students showcased beautifully at Festival and made us all proud.”

determined on Sunday at approximately 3:49 p.m. In cooperation with Alvirne High School, Lesley Saunders, Agricultural Business instructor at Alvirne, led one of their dairy cows named Jocelyn onto the field to make a “deposit.” It took over an hour for Jocelyn to pick a winner. In the end, Jocelyn chose square number 315 as the lucky spot, and Joe Jozitis of Litchfield was the lucky deed holder. Hudson Lions Club deeply appreciates the support of each and every person that purchased a Cow Pie Bingo deed. Over $2,700 was raised to help with Hudson Lions Club charities, which include hearing and vision screening, scholarships for Hudson residents seeking higher education, support of the Anne-Marie House, and many other community efforts. Other winners whose squares were located next to the grand-prize winning square won $25 gift certificates from local businesses.

AHS’ Class Act group at the 2010 Tespian Festival at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Rodgers Library Trustees Recognize Unsung Heroes


submitted by Hudson Library Board of Trustees The Hudson Library Board of Trustees will recognize the many Unsung Heroes who have been instrumental in moving toward the establishment of a marvelous new Town Library, which was dedicated in June 2009. The construction of the new building was made possible through the generous donation of G. Phillip and Alvin F. Rodgers, local builders, who recognized the difficulty in accessing public monies to fund this worthy project. However, it is also appropriate to recognize and thank the many Hudson citizens who worked for nearly 30 years to make this expanded library possible. A Celebration of Hudson Library Unsung Heroes will be held at the Rodgers Memorial Library Building on Derry Road at 11 a.m. on Sunday, September 19. Among the Unsung Heroes are members


of the building committees, the Friends of the Library, former Trustees, private donors, and public supporters, as well as the many dedicated staff and volunteers who carried the dream of a new Hudson library forward, despite many challenges and disappointments. A Memorial Tree will be planted on library grounds, and a granite plaque will be dedicated in conjunction with the ceremonies.


Among those to be recognized are Leonard Smith, Robert Jasper, Jane Bowles, David Thompson, Lisa Riley, Jane Pfarner, Judith Boska, Pat Hetzer, John and Maryanne Knowles, Bob Dufault, Lillian McCoy, and Alice Jones. A Remembrance Journal is being prepared to record the many memories and dreams of those forward-thinking residents whose efforts began in the late 1970s. The public is invited to submit their memories, photos, and statements, and to provide

the names of other individuals who have contributed to the growth of library services in Hudson.


In addition, the Rodgers Library Dream


Team Award will be presented by Conrad Moses, President of the New Hampshire Library Trustees Association, in conjunction with the Unsung Heroes recognition. The Dream Team, made up of the Phil and Al Rodgers; architect Richard Smith, NorthBranch Construction Management firm; Elaine Brody, Project Manager; and Bernie Manor, Clerk of the Works, was awarded the 2010 Special Library Service Contribution Award for their outstanding service to a New Hampshire Library. For more information or to nominate an Unsung Hero, contact the Rodgers Memorial Library at 886-6030 or www.rodgerslibrary.org.
