    Looking for a unique and timeless gift for a special someone this holiday season? The 1923 original of this dirigible’s-eye view of Hudson is part of the local history collection at the Hudson Area Library.

    Every fundraiser strives to be fun, but there is no disguising the real reason that we get together: we are supporting a cause close to our hearts.

    From solicitations for Raffle Tickets to the Silent Auction, Tasting Room, and the Call for the Cause, everyone was there for our Library!

    At the end of the evening, after dining and dancing, greeting friends and making new ones, guests contributed to a total profit that exceeded last year’s by almost 20%!
    Thanks to everyone who made Raise the Roof 2016 a big success!
