                                   BY BUSINESS COMMITTEE
  1                                    A PROCLAMATION
  4        We,  the  members  of  the  House of Representatives of the State of Idaho
  5    assembled in the First Regular Session of the Fifty-ninth  Idaho  Legislature,
  6    recognize  and  commend   Hudson's Hamburgers Restaurant and the Hudson family
  7    for the continuation of one hundred years of business in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
  8        WHEREAS, Harley Hudson opened a "quick-eats" lunchstand in a tent on Coeur
  9    d'Alene, Idaho's main street in 1907, inaugurating the start of  the  Hudson's
 10    Hamburgers business; and
 11        WHEREAS,  five  generations  of  Hudsons,  including  Harley,  son Howard,
 12    grandson Roger, great-grandsons Steve and Todd, and great-great-grandson  Alex
 13    have continued to operate the eatery for the past one hundred years; and
 14        WHEREAS, Hudson's Hamburgers has been recognized in many news articles and
 15    periodicals  for  its  hamburger business and the restaurant's simplified menu
 16    with quick service and orders to go; and
 17        WHEREAS, the menu is dominated by  the  hand-patted  hamburger,  with  the
 18    choice  of pickle, onion and three condiments, namely ketchup, hot mustard and
 19    Hudson's secret sauce. Cheese was added as an option in  the  1960s,  although
 20    chips  and  fries are still not on the menu and pie remains the only choice of
 21    dessert; and
 22        WHEREAS, Hudson's Hamburgers has survived two World Wars, several interna-
 23    tional military combat situations, the Great Depression, economic  recessions,
 24    and the arrival of the "Golden Arches"; and
 25        WHEREAS,  the counter dining at Hudson's Hamburgers, with eighteen stools,
 26    is like being with family, eating elbow-to-elbow with  neighbors,  family  and
 27    visitors to await the treat of a Hudson's hamburger.
 28        NOW,  THEREFORE, BE IT PROCLAIMED by the members of the House of Represen-
 29    tatives assembled in the First Regular Session of the Fifty-ninth Idaho Legis-
 30    lature, that we recognize and commend Hudson's Hamburgers and the Hudson  fam-
 31    ily for ten decades of business in the great state of Idaho.
