Concurrent and Consecutive Events

On Monday, June 13, some people may wish they could be in two places at the same time. At 7 p.m., there's a preview screening of WMHT's Our Town: Hudson, the video scrapbook of Hudson created by your friends and neighbors here in Rivertown. The preview screening takes place in the auditorium at Hudson High School, and WMHT is asking people who want to attend to RSVP at (518) 880-3400 or

The preview screening is happening at the same time as the Common Council's informal meeting, where the Council may discuss the LWRP and GEIS and why it's taking so long to schedule a special meeting to consider these documents.

If you can't decide which event to attend, here's some information that could help. Our Town: Hudson will air on WMHT at 7:30 on Thursday, June 16. So if it's not important for you to be the first kid on your block to see this homegrown documentary about Hudson, you can see it on Thursday in the comfort of your own home.

On Tuesday, June 14, there are also two important events, but they've been scheduled so that you can attend them both. At 5:00 in City Hall, there's another meeting about the dog park. First Ward Alderman Sarah Sterling and her site location committee have been exploring possible places for the dog park and will likely be reporting on the results of their investigations.

The dog park meeting was scheduled so that there would be ample time for everyone to get from City Hall to the First Presbyterian Church by 6:30, in time for the community listening meeting and forum about a food co-op market. Peter Pehrson, a new resident of Hudson and a member of the New York Sustainable Agriculture Working Group (NYSAWG), will explain how this long-sought goal for Hudson can be achieved and, more important, sustained.
