HUDSON – Community members enjoyed the return of Hudson’s Veterans Day parade along South Street and Main Street, Nov. 11.

The parade featured veterans, firefighters, Hudson High School band students and public officials among other participants.

It was one of several events taking place across the region as individual municipalities marked Veterans Day.

AMVETS Commander Joe Jacobs and Hudson Veterans Service Officer Brian Stearns hosted the ceremony portion of the day’s events at Town Hall following the parade.

This marked a triumphant return of Veterans Day traditions in Hudson a year after those traditions were put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As our Veterans have been willing to invest in our future, let us be willing to invest in theirs, and let us never forget why it is appropriate for us to do so,” wrote Rep. Kate Hogan (D-Stow) in a Facebook post after marching in the parade.

“We have our freedom because of these brave people,” noted Select Board Member Shawn Sadowski in a separate post.
