Hudson Home & Garden Club awarded two $250 grants to projects benefiting the Houlton Community Art Bench project gathering space located on the main trail head of the St. Croix River Crossing Loop trail. One grant was given to the St. Croix Bike & Pedestrian Trail Coalition and the other to Houlton Elementary School.

Twice a year HH&GC offers grants up to $250 to support projects of local residents, community organizations, non-profits and educational projects that enhance the community and promote the club's purposes.

Monies for these grants come from the club's production and selling of the Hudson Community Calendar. Currently the club is soliciting photos for its 2020 calendar.
