After many years of hoping and planning, are you ready for a Hudson Senior/Cable Center?  Allowed a preview Monday morning, both floors are almost ready to go.  Please mark your calendars for March 31 for a ribbon cutting and grand opening.  The festivities get underway at 1 p.m. with tours scheduled from 2-4 p.m.

Beginning on Tuesday, June 3, the doors will open for the first day of operations, be it fun, friendship, socializing and lunch or maybe pool (no not swimming) or ping pong.  Hudson seniors have waited a long time for a “home of their own” and this 5000-square-foot space is ready to go, well, as soon as the chairs arrive.  Even with the default budget as an unintended consequence of the March election, the senior section of the building will open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday each week from 8:45 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In the lower level of this beautiful red building, designed to resemble the original red barn at Benson’s that burned several years ago, is the HCTV center.  This full-service studio, with green screen and prior sets for many different types of recording to be shown of the cable channels 20, 21, and 22.  Tours of this high-tech center will also be given after the ribbon cutting on the 31st.
