Downtown Hudson was aglow this season, thanks to the many individuals and organizations who supported the Hudson Community Service Association's Lighting Fund. The new Adopt A Bulb program was popular and gave many the exciting opportunity to adopt and name a bulb. This year's display of lights included a new tree in honor of Mary Lou Morse who started the Lighting of the Green tradition in the late '40s. The celebration of lights and caroling on the day after Thanksgiving was well attended, and thanks go to Santa, the Western Reserve Community Band and members of the Hudson Community Chorus for leading the caroling. Thanks also to Michael Freedman of Hershey's and Boy Scout Troops 327 (Methodist Church) and 777 (Presbyterian Church) for creating and dismantling the display of 2,000 luminaries that graced the sidewalks that evening.
