Tonight, awards season begins with the sixty-ninth annual Emmy Awards, honoring the best in U.S. prime time television programming. The winners of the Emmy Awards, chosen by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, will be announced in a televised ceremony that can be viewed beginning at 8 p.m.
Awards season continues, at least here in Hudson, on Thursday, September 21, with the second annual Ellen Awards, honoring local Democrats "with distinguished records of service." The winner of this year's Ellen Award, chosen by the Hudson City Democratic Committee, will be feted at an award ceremony--which is also a fundraiser for the HCDC--that will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Hudson Opera House.
The Ellen Awards were inaugurated last year as a way of celebrating and honoring Ellen Thurston, who had retired from public office after serving three terms as Third Ward alderman (2006-2011) and two terms as Third Ward supervisor (2012-2015). This year, the award goes to Ed Cross, who is retiring after serving for twenty years as Second Ward supervisor.
The suggested donation to be part of the festivities in $25. Wine, soft drinks, and small plates will be served. All proceeds go to support Democratic candidates in the 2017 election. Click here to reserve your place at the party.
