The members of Rotary Club are currently involved in high profile projects that will benefit the community for years into the future, including:

* Refurbishing the Scout’s historic Wormy Chestnut log cabin located along Main Street that was originally built in 1931 by the Rotary Club of Hudson. It is anticipated that, when completed, the grounds and cabin will offer opportunities for community gatherings as well as scouting activities.

* Establishing a pollinator garden at Ellsworth Elementary School by first removing the invasive plants and weeds from the designated area and then planting the bushes and perennials that will attract birds and bees so vital to our natural environment.

The Rotary Club of Hudson recently completed a long range strategic plan to guide its member growth, service projects, community grants, special events and weekly activities in coming years. Core values of service, fellowship, integrity, leadership and diversity were defined by the plan.
