A hunter's breakfast in Hudson this weekend will help build a memorial to all branches of the military.

Saturday is Youth Hunting Day, which allows youngsters to hunt with an adult, as long as the adult does not have a firearm or archery equipment. It's a great family experience that helps get youngsters interested in the sport of hunting. Learn more about it on the website for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

In Hudson, this Saturday, a hunter's breakfast will offer hunters and non-hunters alike a hot, tasty meal, including bacon, donuts, eggs, ham, sausage, home fries, pancakes, and a lot more. Beverages will include (of course) coffee (you need that before you head into the woods), chocolate milk, hot chocolate, and juice. All this for just $5 for adults and $3 for youths 16 and under. The breakfast runs from 5 to 9 a.m., Saturday, October 21st, at the Hudson Municipal Offices and Community Center, 2150 Hudson Road.

Proceeds from the day will benefit the effort to build a Veteran's Memorial in the town of Hudson. The above drawing shows what it would look like, with each stone representing a different branch of the military, all coming together at the base to protect the flag, which sits in the middle. At last report, the effort still needed about $25,000 so, even if you can't make the breakfast, all donations are gladly accepted.
