’Best ever’ for

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

An an­nual Hud­son an­tiques ap­prai­sals event akin to the po­pu­lar An­tiques Road Show te­le­vi­sion se­ries was a huge hit last wee­kend.

Green­wood Centre for Li­ving His­to­ry di­rec­tor Au­dreyWall said Trea­sures in the At­tic, which took place last Sa­tur­day, brought it more than $8000.

‘‘That is our best re­sult ever’’, said a bea­ming Wall Mon­day mor­ning, ad­ding the fi­nal amount was about $1,000 more than was rai­sed last year.

Trea­sures is one of Green­woods pri­ma­ry fun­drai­sers du­ring the year. Pro­ceeds help keep the Hud­son li­ving mu­seum and grounds run­ning throu­ghout the year.

And far from res­ting on their lau­rels, Green­wood’s ar­my of vo­lun­teers is about to kick in­to high gear for its other im­por­tant fun­drai­ser, Sto­ryFest.

The li­te­ra­ry fes­ti­val, run­ning from Oc­to­ber 3 through No­vem­ber 1, will in­clude ap­pea­rances by five fic­tio­nal au­thors and th­ree poets in­clu­ding: M.G. Vas­san­ji, Ni­no Ric­ci, Mar­ga­ret Tru­deau, Claire Hol­den Roth­man andWayne Johns­ton.

Sto­ryFest will al­so of­fer a wri­ters’ work­shop, a theatre event and a film.

For ti­ckets or in­for­ma­tion, call the Green­wood Centre for Li­ving His­to­ry, 254, rue Main inHud­son, at 450 458-5396.
