Whatever happened to all the cottage families of Hudson Sandy Beach? The history of the old beach and the lives that were there have vanished without a trace since it closed in 1980. Sure would like to hear from those whom lived in one of the cottages at the beach or were regulars on those hot hazy days of the summers past.

I have just finished writing a book titled, Hudson 1924 To Outer Space... I was born in Hudson in 1924 and left in 1947 to come back for good in 1994. The book is about growing up in Hudson and Montreal during the Great Depression and the Second World War years. It also traces the path that led me from a reasonably successful business man to a professional artist. I met so many nice people and made so many good friends during those 80 years. I would love to hear from you, wherever you are. For information about the book please send an e-mail,

Just to let anyone know who helped me with my new book about the military veterans of Hudson through four centuries of warfare-the book is now finished and will be published very soon. Entitled "Defenders of the Flag" it covers all the vets of Hudson from 1743-2003. If you are interested in it or your dad, mother or ancestors are in it, let me know and I 'll reserve you a copy. Thanks for all your help. Rod

I grew up in Hudson and remember the annual 3km, 5km, and 10km (Terry Fox?) run. My brother and I are interested in coming back to Hudson for this run and wonder if anyone can give us info, date, etc. Thx. Scott.

Hello James. From the Freemans. Ruth and Earl have returned from Florida. They spent another season aboard their 38 sail (Mowgli) cuising the florida cost. I hope I'm still cruising at 81 years. We have just started our boat season and will launch in a few days. Hope all is well. Have a great day

I lived in Hudson from 1956 until 1972. Though I didn't attend Hudson High, there are a lot of you whom I remember from touch football games in the summer, hockey at the rink behind Ben's restaurant, the field of moss, car rallies in the winter and the pit along with a lot more. Out here on Vancouver Island, a few people can be found...Peter Hagberg in Merville, Bob Bowen was here in Black Creek. Craig Freeman is up around Courtenay, I think. And there may be others. Acquaintances seemed to go through Hudson in waves... High school grad classes, families of parents who worked in Montreal when many companies still had their headquarters there and executives were transferred every two years or so. I can't believe that I am the person who grew up there, in such a wonderful environment and now so much time has gone by that I'm approaching retirement. Life was good there. It is good here too. If anyone from that era feels like dropping a line, please do. I check my e-mail regularly. regards, Mike

Dear Hudsonites,

Long time no see! I hope you're all well. Would love to hear news.

You probably know that I'm up to my ears in politics these days ... Big surprise, eh?

Well, I thought it would be fun and interesting to put an exciting proposal before the voters of Hudson and Vaudreuil Riding in the upcoming election, so I called our friend Bert Markgraf to see if he would consider being the candidate for the NDP. After the kind of intellectual grilling we would all expect from Bert's precise mind, much to my delight he agreed.

So Bert and I are reunited in politics, much as it was back in the days of the Avatar (our Hudson High newspaper) and the Vista, which Bert edited. And who can forget Bert's riveting speech at our graduation in 1967!

Seriously, Bert knows Hudson and it's issues better than most, having raised his family there with his wonderful wife Heather, who heads the creative and acclaimed Hudson Theatre.

I'm hoping you would consider helping out Bert in his campaign with messages of support, helping him contact other friends, especially those who may still be in the Hudson area, and even perhaps with a little financial help.

In fact, tonight at the Chateau I'll be joining a gathering of Bert's supporters. Feel free to let others know about it if they're in the area and would like to drop in between 8 and 10.

Would love to hear from you.

Take care, Jack

P.S. On the personal front, Sally (now Sally Roy) is doing well, retired from her position as Exec Vice President of George Brown College in Toronto and now consulting and travelling with Hedly. Our kids Mike (25) and Sarah (28) are living with Olivia and I at the moment. Sarah manages a small business and Mike is completing a Masters degree in environmental studies. Mom is healthy and happy as a leader in the Quilters' Guild in Ontario and Florida, also editing their newsletter. We still miss Dad of course, two years after his passing. I'm sure he's enjoying the election campaign from his new vantage point in the heavens.
