Rotary International is a 100-year-old organization of 1.2 million business and professional leaders in more than 200 countries providing humanitarian service, building goodwill and peace in the world. Hudson Rotary, (Club #3542) formed in 1930, is a group of men and women who support the international mission, but who are also joined together by a common interest in service to their own local community… a sincere desire to give back.

Service activities include international projects, such as, sponsoring an exchange student from abroad as well as, awarding scholarships for local students to study abroad in the interest of world peace and understanding.

The primary focus is on local activities, such as, student scholarships, EMS, Hospice, CARE, Community First, and Boy Scouts, to name a few. In addition, Rotarians volunteer their services for such activities as Santa-on-the-Green, Salvation Army Bell Ringers, Relay for Life, Hudson Bandstand, Earth Day, Art-on-the-Green, Bob’s Bikes, Four-Way Speech Contest and many, many others.

In particular, Hudson Rotary aims to support the really great kids in our community through a partnership with the Service Learning program at Hudson High School.

Hudson Rotary welcomes all men and women who share its goals and aspirations. The club meets for breakfast at 7:15 a.m. every Wednesday in the Laurel Lake Community Room, 200 Laurel Lake Drive, (off Boston Mills Road) in Hudson.

The 4-Way Test, followed by Rotarians worldwide in their business and professional life, was created in 1932. It has since been translated into more than 100 languages:

1.  Is it the truth?
2.  Is it fair to all concerned?
3.  Will it build good will and better friendships?
4.  Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
