Hudson Booster Days are scheduled this weekend and it seems like an appropriate time to look at some of the photos from past Booster Day celebrations.


The Boosters were established in 1952 and the organization has three main focal points, although they also are active in other events, such as the annual Easter egg hunt. The three points are:

--Provide youth sports programs (baseball, softball, football) to promote teamwork, skill development, and total person development.

--Plan and host the annual Booster Days celebration in Hudson every Fourth of July (or the closest weekend). This is the primary fundraiser to provide new equipment and field maintenance/upgrades for the youth programs.

--Give citizens a chance to give back to their community by coaching, serving on a committee, or donating their time or expertise to improve our facilities and programs.

The current board members are: President Tom Smith, Vice President Rick Johnson, Treasurer John Herink, Secretary Lynn Lueders, Brent Hedding, Carrie Hobrough, Terry Rowan and Jeff Tersteeg.
