Hudson Satellite by Rotary Club of Lenoir

Jim Engelman, Chair

The Lenoir Rotary Club chartered the Hudson Satellite Club to enable citizens in the Hudson, NC, area to engage in a full range of Rotary activities. This location and schedule enhance their ability to meet regularly and organize Hudson area service projects. Club members are business professionals, educators, and local government officials. The Satellite Club Chair attends regular club board meetings. The Hudson Club meets on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month starting at 2 pm at the Hudson Parks & Recreations Center at 450 Redwood Street, Hudson, NC 28638.


The club’s four main events are:

  1. The Hometown Concert Series. This is a 6-week free musical festival involving all genres of food and fun for the whole family. 
  2. Crusie-In. This summer cruise-in schedule is 2-months long with motorcycles and cars alike.
  3. Arts Festival. A yearly fall arts festival in partnership with the Caldwell Arts Council in downtown Hudson.
  4. The Hudson Wine Festival. This festival is located in downtown Hudson behind the town hall at the beautiful Windmill Park, from 12–5 pm. Local wine and mead shops will be on-site with food trucks and live music.
