Not a woman? Don't look good in white? Can't carry a tune? Don't worry. There is a part for you in the elaborate re-creation of what happened when Lincoln's funeral train stopped briefly in Hudson in the night of April 25, 1865.
Torchbearers Light the way and help re-create the eerie and otherworldly scene that transpired 150 years ago. If you would rather carry a torch than curse the darkness, email Stephanie Monseu of the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus and express your interest.
Perimeter Watchers Responsible volunteers are needed to make sure everyone--participant or spectator--gets safely across the railroad tracks and doesn't stray back onto the tracks during the part of the event that happens on the other side. If you want to help keep your fellow Hudsonians safe, email The Gossips of Rivertown and let us know.
All volunteers are asked to come to a walkthrough rehearsal on Thursday, April 23,, at 6 p.m., and to show up for event at 8:15 p.m. on Saturday, April 25. The re-creation begins at 8:45.
