Hudson – Brendan DeMelo, 2, colors a drawing of soldiers at an outdoor event sponsored by Friends of the Forces, a support group for families with loved ones serving overseas. Held July 12 at Wood Park, the event featured a concert with several bands, children's activities, a military vehicle, and raffles with proceeds going to Local Heroes, a nonprofit organization that sends packages to local servicemen and servicewomen.
