As the aging process does not make any exceptions, no one can stop getting older. The Town of Hudson’s work force continues to get older and so people make a decision to retire. Thus was the case at the Hudson Fire Department, as two long-term captains –so said the retirement card– “put in their papers.” The town says good-bye to Captain Dave Morin after many years of service.. Also leaving the department was Captain Kevin Grebinar.
The Hudson Board of Selectmen accepted the recommendation of Fire Chief Robert Buxton to promote the four members of his department to new responsibilities.
