The Farmers Market every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. offers special events and programs in addition to food, flowers and products. On June 17 Leadership Hudson will be on the Clocktower Green to share information about the program sponsored by the Rotary Club of Hudson Clocktower.

Recruitment season for the Leadership Hudson Class of 2018 is underway, with an application deadline of Tuesday, July 25. The program is open to adults living or working in Hudson who are interested in looking for a way to engage in the community and develop their leadership skills.

The nine-month program introduces participants to city, business and community leaders in Hudson, with the goal that at the program's conclusion participants will serve Hudson in future leadership positions. Leadership Hudson classes begin Sept. 15, 2017, and participants attend a full day each month of presentations and field trips leading up to the May 2018 graduation. In addition to valuable networking and leadership development opportunities, the program also promotes each class to develop its own unique project that will benefit the wider Hudson community.

Many Hudson residents and visitors are familiar already with the projects founded by previous Leadership Hudson classes.

"Hudson summers really showcase some excellent occasions originally created by Leadership Hudson class projects, including Taste of Hudson, Hudson Farmers Market, Screen on the Green and Race to the Taste," says Leadership Hudson facilitator Bob Carter. "I encourage anyone interested in getting more involved with the community to check out Leadership Hudson and consider applying for the next class."
