The North Hudson Village Board honored some special volunteers at its regular meeting last Tuesday.
President Larry Larsen presented a certificate of appreciation to Scott Snyder, who has served the community in some volunteer capacity or another for 16 straight years, since 1992.
"It takes 110 volunteers to make the village run," said Larsen.
