Sunday May 10th

Several appointments were made to
Hudson boards and committees during
the April 14 and April 28 Board of
Selectmen meetings.

Through a unanimous vote taken
during the April 14 meeting, Stuart
Schneiderman was selected to \ufb01 ll the
single vacant alternate slot on the
Nashua Regional Planning Commission
(NRPC). An accountant who has
resided in Hudson for over four years,
Schneiderman is also a member of the
Planning Board and part of the Hudson

Democratic Town Committee.

\u201cI\u2019d like to see Hudson, my
neighbors, all of us, get our fair share
of development,\u201d stated Schneiderman,
citing preferences such as the return of
the rail to south Nashua.

On April 28, Ron Routhier was
appointed to the single vacant alternate
seat on the Conservation Commission
with a term to expire on 12/31/09. A
Hudson resident since 1992, Routhier
explained to the board that he
became interested in the Conservation
Commission after speaking with a

commission member during a previous
town event.

Three applicants surfaced for the two
vacant member seats on the Recycling
Committee \u2014 Lisa Elliot, David Reidt,
and Peter Beaupre.

Elliot is a 15-year Hudson resident
whose children are involved in baseball
and other town activities. Describing
herself as \u201can avid recycler,\u201d Elliot
mentioned better ways to communicate
recycling messages, such as through
banners at ball \ufb01elds, newspaper
advertising, and more Website visibility.

Reidt is the evening manager at
Hannaford in Hudson, who revealed his
desire to \u201cgive back something of my
time to the town.\u201d

Beaupre, who could not attend the
selectmen meetings due to a scheduling
con\ufb02 ict, was interviewed on a previous
occasion by Selectmen Ben Nadeau and
Shawn Jasper.

Based upon a special suggestion
stemming from Selectman Nadeau, all
three applicants were appointed to the
Recycling Committee. \u201cThis is the \ufb01 rst

Sometimes a major
undertaking can
be derailed by the
smallest things. In the
case of Matt Preston\u2019s
Eagle Project, it was

During the month
of October, their buzz
vied with that of saws
and punctuated with
\u201cSlap! Got one!\u201d in
Assistant Scoutmaster
Joe Underco\ufb02 er\u2019s
workshop, but
nothing stopped Matt
or more than a dozen
Scouts who showed up to assist him in
completing his project. Working every
weekend and several weeknights, the
team constructed three storage benches
for the Behavior Health Unit at Southern
New Hampshire Medical Center. The
Unit wished to begin a gardening
program for patients, and Matt\u2019s boxes
are an integral part of this program. The
boxes are constructed of weather-resistant
Hardi-Board, and their design allows
gardening tools to be stored within,
while the closed lid is a comfortable seat.
While the idea was simple, the process of
constructing them wasn\u2019t.

\u201cThe road to Eagle is not a short
trip,\u201d says Assistant Scoutmaster Joe
Underco\ufb02 er. \u201cThis was essentially a
management project and Matt was
the contractor. The benches were a

According to Matt, paperwork was
the hardest part. \u201cI had to keep re-doing
it. Council wanted it detailed, and I\u2019m
not a detail guy.\u201d But Matt persevered.
He completed paperwork and got his
approval for the project, and then it
was time to start. His dad, John, said,
\u201cThey expected him to be a contractor
and know how to do it. He didn\u2019t.\u201d But
there was help. Assistant Scoutmasters
Paul Hamilton and Joe Underco\ufb02 er had
carpentry experience and tools, and were
able to guide Matt into the leadership
role he needed to assume to complete the
project. And when work began, younger
Scouts from Troop 20 showed up, as
they always do, to help. According to

Matt, \u201cSome kids showed up every weekend. That\u2019s

some dedication.\u201d

Of course, there
were roadblocks.
They had to re-
design some things
on the \ufb02 y, change
the hardware, adjust
the design of the
bench lids. Matt said
he felt like quitting
sometimes but did
not because, \u201c \u2026
my parents would
have killed me,

and because it\u2019s

something I wanted
to achieve since starting Scouts, and
having come that close I wasn\u2019t about to

give up.\u201d

\u201cOne of the most amazing things about
the Eagle Project was that Matt learned
it is a process,\u201d says Deb Preston. Paul
Hamilton adds, \u201cIt\u2019s about leadership
and a transition to adulthood. That\u2019s the
biggest thing an Eagle can take away from
his project.\u201d

Everyone agreed that the best day was
the one when the benches were delivered
to Southern New Hampshire Medical
Center. Deb Preston said, \u201cHospital
workers came out to say thank you, and
they made a sign with pictures of the
Project saying \u2018Thank you, Matt\u2019.\u201d Snacks
were offered by hospital staff, which the
boys happily devoured. Southern New
Hampshire Medical Center Behavior
Health Director Donna Lee Elliot
McCabe personally thanked Matt for his
hard work.

At his Eagle Court of Honor on
Sunday, April 26, Matt honored Assistant
Scoutmasters Paul Hamilton and Joe
Underco\ufb02 er in his speech, and offered a
bouquet to each of their wives \u201cfor giving
up all those weekends with your family.\u201d
Hamilton said, \u201cIt\u2019s rewarding to work
with the guys, and there\u2019s a reason we all
do this. It\u2019s about mentoring.\u201d

As an Eagle Scout, Matt plans to
continue working with Troop 20 as an
Assistant Scoutmaster and teach a couple
of merit badges. Ultimately, he hopes to
be an advisor for someone else\u2019s Eagle

The Hudson Fire
Department Award

was presented to Ed
Shiebler, who was
cited for his many
years of service to the
department, \ufb01 rst as a
\ufb01re\ufb01ghter and later as a
very active volunteer.

Of\ufb01 cer Patrick
Broderick received
the Hudson Police

the arrest of individuals responsible for a
number of counterfeit bills that had been

Jennifer Riel received the Town
of Hudson Employee Award for
her outstanding work in the Water
Department, especially her ability to
work with delinquent accounts and

Her resume included many examples of
her dedication to her students and her
enthusiasm for her chosen \ufb01 eld.

Dolores Barry from Hills Garrison
School was named recipient of the

members of
Hudson Grange
No.11 observed
Night to honor
outstanding citizens

who have made

a difference in
someone\u2019s life or in
the community.

Following the salute to the
\ufb02 ag led by Claire Gagnon, the
Reverend David Howe delivered
an inspirational invocation. Master
Jerry Leclerc then welcomed
and thanked all those present
who joined us in honoring our
community citizens who have gone
above and beyond the call of duty.

Pat Bailey, Flora of Hudson
Grange, served as master of
ceremony and gave a brief history
of the Grange and our community

The Police Award went to Jana

McMcMillan, the Animal Control
Of\ufb01 ce (ACO) at the Hudson
Police Department. Lady Assistant
Steward, Sarah Leclerc presented
her with this award and explained
the reason for her nomination. On
October 27, 2008 ACO McMillan
distinguished herself by responding
to a Hudson residence to check on
the homeowner. She located the

elderly lady but knew something
was not right by the way the victim\u2019s
dog was acting. It appeared the
lady had suffered a stroke and
ACO McMillan immediately
began \ufb01rst aid and cared for her
until the Fire Department arrived.
Her compassion shows how she
conducts her job.

The Fire\ufb01 ghter Award went to
Helen Cheyne. Treasurer Rick
Bailey presented her this award
after reading the recommendations
that earned her this honor.
Helen\u2019s primary responsibility as
Administrative Aide is working
with the Fire Prevention Division
and is always looking to \ufb01 nd new
ways to make the Fire Department
more successful and ef\ufb01cient.
Helen\u2019s willingness to put her best
effort forward was seen during
the Ice Storm this last December.
She assisted in staf\ufb01 ng the Town
sponsored shelter. She also helps
with the Police Blood Drives, at Old
Home Days and several other civic

areas the department is involved in.
The Teacher Award went to Beth

Cadorette. Steward Rachel Bailey
presented this award to a deserving
teacher at the Nottingham West
Elementary School. Beth is
teaching at the \ufb01 rst grade level and
includes a nurturing environment
for the cognitive, emotional and
social well being of her students.
She \ufb01 nds ways to make the
curriculum fun and interesting. She
is the kind of teacher that creates
a love of learning for the young
minds. Beth is pursuing a degree in
Educational Administration to attain
and remain at the top of her career.

The Community Citizen Award
went to Roger Coutu. Overseer
Bob Haefner presented him
this certi\ufb01 cate and a gift. We
chose Roger for two efforts he
accomplished during his \ufb01 rst year
in of\ufb01 ce as one of our selectmen.
First, for completing the purchase

Michael Ferdinand, a \ufb01rst year graphic design and illustration
student and lifetime resident of Litch\ufb01eld, created a design
for Breathe New Hampshire\u2019s annual T-Shirt Graphic Design
contest that landed in the top three. The design was vying to
win the honor of being imprinted on event T-shirts, which will be
distributed to each participant in the non-pro\ufb01t\u2019s annual Seacoast
Bike Tour scheduled on May 16 and 17.

Ferdinand, a graduate of Campbell High School, is currently
enrolled in Manchester Community College\u2019s Commercial Design
and Illustration Program. He professes to have a keen interest in
drawing and computers.

\u201cSo this \ufb01eld that combines both is perfect for me,\u201d he explained.

It seems he has found his niche, as his design was chosen as one
of the top three designs to be used as this year\u2019s design for Breathe
New Hampshire\u2019s annual Seacoast Bike Tour of\ufb01cial T-shirt. Over
400 people voted online, with his design and another student\u2019s
designs splitting the vote for second place.

\u201cEach year we do this, the number of folks who vote increases,\u201d
said Beth D\u2019Ovidio, spokesperson for Breathe New Hampshire.
She added, \u201cWe are always blown away by the quality and
individuality of the designs.\u201d This year\u2019s winning design was
submitted by Shane McGonagle of Green\ufb01eld.

\u201cThis is the third year we participated with Manchester
Community College in this service-learning project,\u201d said Beth.

Students are assigned the project of creating the design for the
T-shirt, as part of their course work. The project provides the
students with authentic experience in working with a client and
designing something that may have a real life application.

Ferdinand explained that he conducted his own research on Breathe New Hampshire before he began his design. \u201cI visited their Website to see what they were all about,\u201d he said.

When asked about his process for creating the design, he
explained, \u201cFirst I came up with a few small sketches (thumbnails),
then I decided
to develop
the idea of
bikers riding
around the
logo, which is

circular. It all had a moving dynamic to

it.\u201d Ferdinand

was hoping the
design would
produce a good
grade from

his teacher. \u201cI

can\u2019t tell you
what grade he
received,\u201d said
D\u2019Ovidio,\u201d but
it was a winner

to us.\u201d

Red Cross Offers Tips
to Avoid the Flu
\u2013 #1: Wash Your Hands!

With rising concerns from recent cases of the swine \ufb02u, the
American Red Cross offers guidelines to reduce the risk of illness
in New Hampshire families and communities. These are important
to follow, regardless of the speci\ufb01c type of \ufb02u. Many are common-
sense precautions that we learned as children.

The best practice is to avoid getting sick in the \ufb01rst place. Eat a
balanced diet, exercise daily, drink plenty of \ufb02uids, manage your
stress, and get enough sleep. To avoid spreading germs, take the
age-old precaution of washing your hands frequently with soap and
warm water; an alcohol-based hand sanitizer can be used when
soap and water are not available. Minimize your contact with sick
people, and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Get a \ufb02u
shot as advised by your healthcare provider.

If you do get sick, avoid contact with other people. Stay home
from work. If necessary, encourage your business and school to
establish policies that support people staying at home when they
are ill. When you sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with tissues
or the crook of your elbow \u2013 then wash your hands with soap and

warm water.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,
the symptoms of swine \ufb02u in people are similar to the symptoms of
regular human \ufb02u, which include fever, cough, sore throat, body
aches, headache, chills, and fatigue. Some people have reported
diarrhea and vomiting associated with swine \ufb02u. Note that having
these symptoms doesn\u2019t always mean that you have the \ufb02u; many
different illnesses have similar symptoms.

Like seasonal \ufb02u, swine \ufb02u may cause a worsening of underlying chronic medical conditions. If you develop \ufb02u-like symptoms and are concerned about possible complications, consult your health care provider.

For further information, contact the American Red Cross. Call your local chapter at 603-889-6664, then wash your hands with soap and warm water.
