Announcing Hudson Rotary's "Flying Flags" Program!
Hudson business owners and residents, for only $100.00 per flag per year, we will place a 3’x 5’ American flag in front of your business or your home's front yard with a stand or in-ground mount for 6 patriotic holidays each year.  Your contribution will benefit dozens of Hudson area nonprofits, hundreds of families in need, and several international projects, and we do all the work of mounting and removing, storing, and maintaining the flag, so you don't have to!
St. Croix River Dunk 2024 was a slam "dunk"!
Once again, the Hudson Rotary Club’s “St. Croix River Dunk” brought together nonprofits from the area and added another $70,000.00 this year to the cumulative event total of $300,000.00 raised for Hudson area nonprofits, including two teams who raised over $10,000.00 each!
Merry Meals 2023 was a huge success!
Merry Meals is an annual Hudson Rotary Club service project that provides the ingredients for a traditional Christmas meal to families in need in the Hudson, Wisconsin, community, on the Thursday before Christmas.
 
Since 2018, Merry Meals has served over 700 families.  Thank you for your support!

Club News
Music has been an important part of leading an ordinary life for students at the Music School for Children With Disabilities in Honor of Paul Harris in Lublin, Poland. Founded by Rotary members, the school serves 20 students with various disabilities, including Down syndrome, autism, and visual impairments. The Rotary Club of Lublin-Centrum-Maria Curie-Sklodowska has provided funding with help from Rotary Foundation Matching Grants and the Henryk Wieniawski Musical Society, which houses the school.
 
After their son Mateusz was born with underdeveloped eyes, Mariusz and Joanna Kania looked for ways to help him be active. When he showed an aptitude for music, they looked for a teacher and were thrilled to find the Paul Harris music school.
For years, Angalia Bianca had slept in abandoned buildings throughout Chicago. She stole. She did drugs. She spent time in and out of jail for forgery, theft, trespassing, and possession of narcotics. But after she landed in prison for the seventh time, something changed -- Bianca knew she wanted a better life. She just didn’t know how to make it happen.
 
After serving her time, Bianca sought help from a local homeless organization, A Safe Haven, and moved to its shelter in the Rogers Park neighborhood. Bianca followed the program closely -- she attended all the required meetings, passed drug tests, and volunteered at every opportunity.
Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
 
The three-year achievement sets the stage for polio-free certification of the entire Southeast Asia region by the World Health Organization. The Indian government also plans to convene a polio summit in February to commemorate this victory in the global effort to eradicate polio.
 
What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.

A highlight for the team was greeting the chief of Sagadugu. The team got excited about buying goats and food for children in the villages where I support eight churches. It was good to see the pastors of most of the eight churches, and I had to explain that we were just passing through on our way to Bolgatanga.
