A School Recycling Program Worthy of Praise

Two years after it opened in 2000, Campbell High
School in Litchfield began a modest recycling program.

Remember Hudson When ...

Sunnyside Cemetery on Central Street
Hadley in June 1846 was slightly over half an acre. The
land was purchased for $13 and an additional $257 to
Ethan Willoughby for the construction of the stone wall
which enclosed the yard with an entrance off Central Street.
There were two additional land purchases, one in 1885
and the second in 1910. After the first purchase the stone
wall was moved to include the parcel within the bounds of
the yard. At the present time this small cemetery contains
2.817 acres shaded from the canopy of maple trees.
According to Kimball Webster in his History of Hudson,
the first meeting of the Hudson Cemetery Association was
held at the home of Ethan Willoughby on Central Street,
Dec. 6, 1845. At this meeting the cemetery was organized,
and the articles of association were signed by Ethan
Willoughby, Paul Colburn, Cyrus Warren, Nathan Marshall,
William Hadley, David Clement, David Burns, Abiather
Winn, Mark Willoughby, Benjamin A. Merrill, and William
Blodgett. It was also agreed to purchase the original 200
by 113 feet original parcel for the cemetery. No record of
any subsequent meeting for several years; however, business
was conducted and the land was purchased, lots laid out,

Alvirne Boys Lose to Undefeated Exeter

The Alvirne boys soccer team lost their matchup with Exeter last
Friday by a score of 5-1, dropping the Broncos record to 0-5, while
the Blue Hawks remained undefeated at 5-0.
Against an Alvirne team missing three starters due to injury, Exeter
came out firing early, scoring their first goal just 53 seconds into the
contest on a pinpoint cross and header. Exeter would again show off

that is the offense and
defensive line, sometimes referred to as the guys in the trenches. While Keegan Mills continued
to run the pigskin well with two scores of 14 and 16 yards, while Ryan Yanuszewski also had
two scores on runs of 14 and 67 yards. Mills took a direct snap from one of the guys in the
trench and completed a 22-yard pass to Nick Boucher. The final score came from Devin
Ventura who made it to the goal running the ball.
But back to the O&D, Gush commented, Both the offensive and defensive lines did what
they were supposed to do. They were focused. With no one scoring on us, the guys up front
are killing themselves so linebackers can make tackles. As for our offense getting over 400
yards, that means our O-line is blocking successfully.
