REAA NEWSLETTER 
A newsletter to keep you informed about what's "up with arts."

Letter from the BOD President:
Dear Members and Friends,

This year's Hudson Downtown Stroll was the best one yet!  The weather was perfect and there was so much activity throughout the whole evening!  We would like to thank those who stopped by to hear the River's Edge Chorale (see picture right) and the REHarmonix (see picture below) sing at the Town Hall Venue.  Several singers also strolled up and down Main Street singing holiday carols.  Special thanks to the Hudson Business Association for allowing us to participate again this year.

You will have another chance to hear both groups perform at our annual Holiday Concert this coming Sunday, December 9 at 2pm.  See below for more information

Looking for some unique gifts for this holiday season?  Why not come to our Last Minute Holiday Solutions Bazaar on Sunday, December 16?  Read on for all of the details.

Thanks for all of your support throughout the year!  Happy Holidays!

Lisa Schliker -  REAA BOD President
