Learn more about Hudson Clocktower Rotary

Take a look at some of our videos on YouTube. We completed a new video in 2015 that explains what our club does and our focus on Leadership Hudson.

Anyone interested in coming to one of our meetings should contact Phil Leiter to set up the date when you’d like to come. We welcome all parties who may be interested in giving back to our community by becoming involved with Hudson Clocktower Rotary.

What is Hudson Clocktower Rotary?

Naturally, we are members of Rotary International. And because of this, we are committed to the goals of Rotary, the largest of which is the eradication of polio worldwide through the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.

But if you attend one of our meetings, you’re likely to think we’re just a friendly group of people who live or work in and around Hudson who enjoy getting together for lunch once a week. This is true. But we’re much more than that.

The video you see here does a great job of capturing exactly what we’re all about. Enjoy it, and we hope you’ll decide to come to one of our meetings to see what we’re all about.

What is Rotary?

We are 1.2 million neighbors, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world.

Our distinct point of view and approach gives us unique advantages:

  • We see differently: Our multidisciplinary perspective helps us see challenges in unique ways.
  • We think differently: We apply leadership and expertise to social issues—and find unique solutions.
  • We act responsibly: Our passion and perseverance create lasting change.
  • We make a difference at home and around the world: Our members can be found in your community and across the globe.
We’ve been making history and bringing our world closer together for over 100 years. Since forming in 1905, we’ve taken on some of the world’s toughest challenges and helped a wide range of international and service organizations—from the UN to Easter Seals—get started.
Our impact starts with our members—people who work tirelessly with their clubs to solve some of our communities’ toughest challenges. Their efforts are supported by Rotary International, our member association, and The Rotary Foundation, which turns generous donations into grants that fund the work of our members and partners around the world. Rotary is led by our members—responsible leaders who help to carry forward our organization’s mission and values in their elected roles.
We have identified specific causes to target to maximize our local and global impact. At the same time, we understand that each community has its own unique needs and concerns. Through our network of resources and partners, we help clubs focus their service efforts in promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies.
