Businesses located on Warren Street should be receiving visitors from the organization Perfect Ten After School in the next couple of months. The young women, all local high school students, focus not only on academic skills, but dedication to social interaction as well. Under the watchful eye of Director Laura Miller and Founder Paula Forman, the students will be gathering information to update the listings for the most highly trafficked thoroughfare in Columbia County.
We are working with Perfect Ten and the Hudson Development Corporation to amass an accurate record of all the businesses on and adjacent to Warren Street. We want to build a closer relationship with the business community and the Hudson Walking Guide (an HDC project) will benefit from our canvassing as well.
Until now, no one has put together a comprehensive list of Warren Street businesses. Participation in the Hudson Walking Guide is voluntary as is membership in the Chamber of Commerce. We want to document it all – first floor, second floor, back rooms, anyplace there is a business, we’d like to record it.
Keep your eyes open for these students. Offer them a handshake and maybe even a tour. This is a perfect example of how community outreach can benefit everyone
