The Anna Lee, David Hudson and James Ellsworth chapters of Questers recently conducted an Appreciation Tea in honor of Gwen Mayer, archivist at the Hudson Library and Historical Society. 

 The exceptional contributions and knowledge she contributes to the community is unsurpassed. In addition to preserving the historical documents and artifacts of Hudson’s history, she leads Hudson Walking Tours and the Hudson Genealogy Group.

The Appreciation Tea was taped by HCTV and can be viewed on any computer by going to and select "Video on Demand."

The Questers is an international organization of more than 500 chapters whose members are devoted to the study of historical markers, preservation and restoration. The Hudson chapters have been instrumental in restoring the Old Burying Ground, the clockworks in the Clock Tower, spearheading the building of the Gazebo on the Green, historical mark and raising funds for furnishing, maintenance and offering tours at Case-Barlow Farm.
