Hudson celebrates opening of new senior center/TV studio
After hearing from Boucher, now the president of the Hudson Council on Aging, about the local seniors’ longtime efforts to build a senior center in town, Coutu reached into his wallet and dropped a $20 bill into the collection jar.
“This time, it’s for my membership fee,” he said with a grin.
The upstairs portion of the building houses the new senior center, while the downstairs portion is the new home of Hudson Community Television.
Fundraising efforts began in March 1992, according to Boucher.
“I’m sure they’re looking down on us today and they’re saying, ‘it’s about time’,” said Boucher.
“This center has great potential for this community,” Porter said. “It’s really about creating a legacy and I think that’s exactly what we’ve done.”
“My hope is we can even encourage some of our seniors to venture downstairs,” O’Keefe said. “Maybe some of you could produce a show about issues facing senior citizens, or maybe you’d like to share some of your rich life experiences.”
“Now we have this bright, new place in the center of town,” Jasper said. “On a nice day, people can get out and enjoy the park next door. They can remember what was once here.”
