Projects

We work together to help others year-round, keeping the momentum going through team effort and community support. Projects range from the historic Halloween Parade to the Rotary Youth Exchange with other countries. No matter the project, we take pride in our dedication and commitment.

Each year, Hudson Daybreak Rotary Club hosts the Rotary Car Raffle. The raffle raises money that goes straight back into the community through various organizations.

Rotary sponsors a youth leadership camp, Camp Enterprise, every fall in the Twin Cities. Hudson Daybreak Rotary sponsors two students to attend and gain knowledge and a better understanding of fundamental economics and operating a business.

The Hudson Rotary clubs recognize graduating seniors with a cumulative GPA of 10.0 for their academic achievements with an Honors Breakfast. Parents are welcome to attend. A speaker addresses the honored students before Principal Shoemaker awards them with a recognition pin or letter.

Each year, we also award scholarships to outstanding students for their academic achievements and/or outstanding community involvement.

The annual golf event supports many of the youth oriented programs in Hudson. Typically attendees enjoy a round of golf, delicious dinner, the chance to win prizes and an auction.

Dates coming soon!

If you’ve never been to our Halloween Parade in the last 50+ years, you’re missing out. It’s a fun community event with plenty of costumes and goodies for kids to enjoy! The parade brings the community together to celebrate Halloween with games, prizes and more.

This memorable winter event with fantastic entertainment, food and drinks has been our tradition for more than 30 years.

Typically, the night includes music, food, drinks, prizes and a silent auction. This event has raised thousands of dollars for Hudson and international humanitarian projects and organizations. Join us next time!

The most powerful force in the promotion of international understanding and peace is exposure to different cultures. The world becomes a smaller, friendlier place when we learn that all people, regardless of nationality, desire the same basic things: a safe, comfortable environment that allows for a rich and satisfying life for our children and ourselves.

Each month from September to May, we recognize two outstanding students from Hudson High School.

Each receives a rotary pin, a card containing the four-way test, and a certificate of recognition.
