Hudson Litchfield Bears Cheerleading Squad
Earns First Place Honor at National Championship
by Doug Robinson The Hudson Board of Selectmen congratulated the Hudson
Litchfield Bears, Division 12 Cheerleading Squad, for their winning first place at the American Youth Cheerleading (AYC) National Championship, held in Kissimmee, FL.
According to the prepared statement, Chairman Shawn Jasper stated, “The girls out performed many teams in New Hampshire and New England to earn the right to attend Nationals in 2011. They also overcame many obstacles along the way. Despite experiencing the trauma of a teammate breaking her arm during warm-ups at the New Hampshire State Cheer Championships, they placed second of out seven teams. The team then went on to rebuild their routine and placed second out of 15 teams at the New England Regional Center Championships earning the right to attend Nationals in Florida. However, the hard work wasn’t over yet. The team found themselves needing to rearrange their routine one last time for Nationals, with only four practices to do it. The girls managed to pull together their strongest routine of the season. “On Saturday, December 10, 2011, the Hudson Litchfield Bears Cheerleading Squad took center stage at the Spurs Silver Arena in Kissimmee, Florida, for the American Youth Cheerleading Competition and took 1st place. This is the second time in Hudson Bears’ history that a cheerleading squad has brought home a National Championship. Congratulations on this amazing victory!”
Besides his loving wife, Bud is survived by four daughters, Candice Dearborn of Hudson, Karen Garvin and her husband Gordon of Hillsboro, Tracey Grosvenor and her husband John of Nashua, and Kelly Dearborn-Luce and her husband Dan of Henniker; two brothers, Gerald Dearborn and his wife Clarice of Hudson, and Donald Taylor and his wife Nancy of Solomons, MD; a brother-in- law, Charles Kalil and his wife Brenda of Hudson; two sisters-in- law, Geradine Dearborn of Nashua, and Patricia Blanchard and her husband Ken of Hudson; six grandsons, Jason, Joshua and Joey Paradise, T. Grant Dearborn, William Garvin and Corey Boilard; a granddaughter, Melanie June Grosvenor; six godchildren; several nieces and nephews and many dear friends.

have saved $1,846,922 in prescription costs since the partnership with FamilyWize began in 2005. On average, individuals save $20 per prescription. The card, which is simply presented for use at a participating pharmacy, is free and easy to use with no information required and no age or income restrictions. It is accepted at 95 percent of pharmacies nationwide and can be used by people without insurance or with insurance who take medications not covered by their existing plan. These pharmacies offer eligible prescriptions at a discounted price so that the cost does not have to be absorbed by the local United Way or FamilyWize. According to Heather Aicholtz, Director of the United Way’s 2- 1-1 NH Information and Referral Service, whose service assists in the distribution and promotion of FamilyWize cards, the card is often a lifeline for individuals waiting for approval from a long-term prescription drug assistance program but in need of a prescription or prescriptions immediately. “I recently spoke with a caller from Peterborough who lost their job and health insurance in October and cannot find work. She had stopped taking her antidepressant medication because she did not have enough money to cover the refill,” said Aicholtz. “I was able to provide her with the information she needed to obtain a FamilyWize card over the phone and she used it that afternoon to fill her prescription for an amount she could afford.” FamilyWize cards can be obtained at participating local pharmacies, at any of Granite United Way’s regional offices or on their website, www.graniteuw.org
. You can also lookup drug prices and obtain a list of participating pharmacies by going to www. familywize.org
