Polar Plunge

On behalf of the City of Hudson Fire Department Water Rescue Team and the Hudson Youth Department, we would like to thank you for all your support organizing our first Hudson Polar Plunge. People like you make us proud to be part of this community!


Here are a few of the highlights from February’s Polar Plunge:

Organizing events is what I do; logistics, publicity and promotion.

Back late fall, I was asked to help out with the Hudson Polar Plunge, and I gladly said YES.    I worked with 5th Ward Alderman Dominic Merante, Nick Zachos from the Hudson Youth department, and Justin Elliot, Dan Hickey and Nick Cozzolino from the Hudson Volunteer Firefighters Water Rescue team and Mike Molinski.   In total, we were able to raise about $12,000 for the Hudson Youth/Oakdale and Water Rescue.  It was great working with these guys!

The event was a lot of fun, raised a lot of money, and brought together many different parts of the Hudson community.  The weather was perfect, and we are looking forward to next year!

Girgantua (Justin Weaver) stole the show!

A Tree Grows on State Street

I write this on a wintery day, but spring is right around the corner!  Are you interested in having a tree in front of your house?

The City of Hudson’s CAC, or Conservation Advisory Council will provide a tree and the Department of Public works will cut out the hole to be planted.  For more information, please visit this link.
