‘Tis the Season’: Hudson Decorates for the Holidays

Te entire cast acts, sings, and dances for the audience during their opening number. by Doug Robinson
Nearly 100 students, staff, musicians, and back stage support combined their efforts to produce and perform the theatrical musical play, Thoroughly Modern Mille. Performing to sold out audiences, the Campbell High School (CHS) performers dressed in period costumes performed both song and dance to the raucous applause of all audiences. Millie, played by CHS thespian, Kellie Wallman, expertly
portrayed the story of a small town girl, who comes to New York City to marry for money, instead of for love. As she entered into a new life style, that of NYC, she embodied the symbolism of those women in the 1960s who too entered into the workforce and focused on the struggles of women who entered into the workforce during the 1960’s. Winner of six Tony Awards, the musical has become a popular
choice for high schools to perform. The production of Thoroughly Modern Millie at CHS was a multi- media event. The high energy, fluid performances, brought laughter, applause, and approval from all in attendance. The actors wore period costumes and danced the period sensitive dances. As in any musical, the performances relies on the blend of both musician and orchestra, and the actors and musicians did not
disappoint the audience. The solos, duets, and ensemble numbers were uplifting and engaging.

As difficult as the technical commitments of the performance challenged the back stage staff, lighting, props, back stage crew, hair/make-up, front of house, poster design, set painting as well as costume design, the visual aspects of the play were brilliant.

Wallman, sings “Not for the Life of Me” during her performance of Toroughly Modern Millie
CHS Director Jill Deleault writes, “In a production like this, students are gaining life skills including discipline, teamwork, commitment, public speaking, time management, prioritizing, and multi-tasking. Furthermore, they are making life-long memories of fun and friendship. I am grateful to all of our incredibly supportive cast and crew families.”
Veterans’ Day Celebration
by Lynne Ober Former Selectman Pat Jewett once again arranged for a
celebration honoring veterans. Pat, a long time Navy wife, has always felt a special kinship with veterans. According to Jewett, she wanted to organize the celebration in memory of her late husband, Will, and all other Litchfield veterans. The group gathered at 2 p.m. on the Sunday following Veterans’ Day to remember all who had served. As usual it was a time to renew friendships and come together to give thanks to those who have

served the country. Several of the veterans could still wear their uniforms and wore them with pride to the celebration. After the pledge of allegiance was said, Jewett read a moving prayer that honored all veterans. Rich Lascelles was the keynote speaker.
that Lascelles needed no introduction to the people of Litchfield. In addition to serving in the Navy as a submariner, Lascelles helped build Talent Hall, was a school board member and Chairman of the Litchfield school board, volunteered with a variety of kids’ sports programs as a coach, worked as a volunteer for Darrah Pond and, when asked, participants in each and every Litchfield activity. With a ready smile, Lascelles started his speech by saying that no one could turn Pat down. His speech was filled with honor, with respect for those who served and with memories of a time past. Those in the audience nodded their heads when they agreed with his words. Jewett is one of Litchfield’s best cooks so it was no surprise that the refreshments served after the celebration were delicious.

by Doug Robinson Decorating Library Park is a decades old tradition in Hudson. The Highway Department has been decorating the park every holiday season for two decades. Prior to closing in the 1980’s, Benson’s Wild Animal Farm decorated the park as part of it’s “Christmas in New England” program. Every year since, larger than life soldiers stand tall, welcoming all those who pass through Hudson. At the other end of Library Park stands Santa. With his outstretched hand waving, all those who enter Hudson via the Veteran’s Bridge receive his warm “Hello.”
Santa welcomes all those who cross the bridge and enter into Hudson
In addition, the gazebo has been decorated with Christmas lights, garland, and a Christmas tree. On Friday, November 25, at 4:30 p.m., Library Park will be lit up in celebration of Santa’s arrival.
