The Hudson Rotary Club mourns the passing of one of it’s longest standing members, Skip Conrad. Skip was a true Rotarian and was the perfect example of someone that lived by the motto “Service above Self.” He was so involved in the club, especially our annual lucky duck race. The club has some big shoes to fill, and we hope to make Skip proud with our 2018 duck race, which we have appropriately re-named to the “Skip Conrad Memorial Duck Race.” Please consider supporting this event to help us make this year our best year ever. See our lucky duck race page for more information.
