Hudson -- Three Hudson residents were elected to the Hudson Library and Historical Society Board of Directors at its annual meeting Feb. 24 at the library.
The three, Debbie Currin, Denise D. Gibson and Amit Mittal were selected from a field of nine qualified candidates. Currin, whose term expired in February, was returned to the board for another term.
