Car Raffle Proceeds Stay Local
The Grant Recipients of this year’s car raffle are Hudson Boosters and Athletes Making Progress(AMP).  Hudson Boosters is using the grant to build a new T-Ball Field to replace the current location that has brought on safety concerns in recent years.  T-Ball is the beginning experience youth have in the baseball/softball arena.  A new T-Ball Field will be constructed adjacent to the existing ball fields at the Township of Hudson Fields location.  The township has given its approval.   It will be a grass field with the base paths cut in and bedded with diamond dust, and with fencing to protect youth when sitting in the bench area.  There would also be an appropriate back stop fence.
 
The AMP Club is using their grant proceeds to create a Raider Hallway.  The new hallway will include new murals, showcase scholar athletes, championship banners, integrate with video boards through social median, and inspire school spirit throughout the space.
