Hudson – The Hudson Historical Society is seeking applications for the L.D. Apsley Young Community Leader Award. Nominees are young adults, ages 18-35, who are “making a significant contribution to the wellbeing of others through volunteerism and community service.”
The fund was established in 2003 with a gala at the Apsley Mansion hosted by owners Keith Carter and Anthony Price, and is given in memory and in honor of Lewis Dewart Apsley, U.S. Congressman and Hudson industrialist at the turn of the 19th century.
This year's $500 award was presented to Hudson resident Cristina Federico, college student, store clerk, and volunteer with the Greater Marlborough Programs for mentally challenged adults and children.
For information or to apply, call Vic Rimkus, 978-562-2109, or Hugo Guidotti, 978-562-6501, of the society's Apsley Fund Committee.
