submitted by the American Heart Association Hudson resident nine-year-old Anna O’Donnell modeled in the American Heart Association’s Go Red In Your Own Fashion event at Saint Vincent Hospital in Worcester, MA, on February 24. Along with other heart survivors, Anna walked the runway with her doctor, Dr. Marx, to raise awareness around the Go Red For Women movement in the fight against heart disease, the number-one health threat for women. Anna was born with congenital heart disease. She had three heart surgeries by the age of four. Highlights of the event included a cooking demonstration by Peppers Fine Foods Catering, emcees Jen Carter and Mary Knight of WXLO, and comedian Kelly MacFarland. The event takes place during American Heart Month to remind women to take time for their hearts. For information about local American

Nottingham West Family Science Night Was a Blast!


submitted by Nottingham West PTO Nottingham West Elementary School hosted their third


Family Science Night on Thursday, March 10. The PTO organized this free evening for students and their families to help build community while supporting the science curriculum. With over 200 students and 180 parents in attendance, the night was a great success. Each child was able to participate in 10 different hands-on science experiments. From Dry Ice to Tornado Tubes to the high-shooting Mentos Geyser, the experiments were engaging, memorable, and fun.

Parents and children alike enjoyed the fun presentations given by the teachers, staff, and volunteers. Alvirne High School students volunteered their time to help at the various stations, which contributed to the success of the night. The school has posted all the experiments on their Website, nwes.sau81.org, giving students who were unable to attend the option to replicate the experiments at home with their parents. The PTO plans to offer more family events in the upcoming months, including a Family Reading night at the end of March.
