Hudson Storm Damage Update

Hudson is open for curbside, and they’re looking for alternate venues for their upcoming programs. They’re doing an excellent job of communicating with their users on their website and on Facebook, so look there for details and updates.

From Maureen: Hudson is ready to restart getting courier today: Friday, Sept. 24.  You can begin to put those items in transit for Hudson into courier again. Contact Maureen with any questions.
