Lisa Loughran, whose son Roger was born with the rare joint-and-muscle disease AMC (arthrogryposis multiplex congenita), visits RadioRotary to tell about the annual event for raising awareness and funds, Roger’s Run. When Roger was born in 2010, he displayed the form of AMC in which the joints are “frozen” in a way that all the limbs are completely extended. The condition, which also causes muscles to atrophy, was diagnosed before birth, leading Mrs. Loughran to seek out the AMC Support Group, which has helped immensely. Local doctors learned more about the disease and have gone beyond ordinary duties as Roger has gone through numerous surgeries. Despite the problems. Roger is active in Red Hook school and sports, inspiring the Red Hook Community. Roger’s Run includes several levels of both virtual and physical runs or just an opportunity to donate to an excellent cause.

Rotarian Joe Berninger from the Rotary e-Club of Ohio Pathways joins RadioRotary to tell about a work that was called “the gold standard of Rotary projects” by past Rotary President Ian Riseley (2017-18)—the Guatemala Literary Project. More than 600 clubs from 80 districts have been working together since 1997 to improve education for underserved students in Guatemala. In that time, nearly 225,500 students have been made more literate—both for reading and in technology-- through sustainable programs that are tested and proven to work.

Crissy Groenewegen, project coordinator of the Northern Dutchess Community Coalition, visits RadioRotary to tell about the Coalition’s work with local institutions in the dozen zip codes of Northern Dutchess, which cover the towns of Red Hook, Rhinebeck, Hyde Park, Millbrook, Amenia, Pine Plains, Dover Plains, and Millerton. The coalition was formed in 2009 by citizens concerned with addiction problems in Northern Dutchess schools and has enlisted local businesses, law enforcement, nonprofits, and schools in its drug-free initiatives. The coalition’s concerns include, but go beyond, alcohol, marijuana, and hard drugs to vaping with electronic cigarettes, which deliver the potent addictive drug nicotine, and other addictions. One of their recent events was a contest for the best slogan to put on masks, with winners such as “Spread Kindness, Not Germs” and “Keep Calm, and Mask On.” The coalition works with CAPE (the Council on Addiction Prevention and Education) and SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions).

MARC Foundation Board President Mike Fanelli and Co-Chair of the Foundation’s annual golf tournament Patty Hogan visit RadioRotary to discuss the origin and mission of the MARC Foundation, as well as two events—a golf tournament that is a major fundraiser for the Foundation and a free picnic to celebrate sobriety. From beginning as a place where alcoholics could sober up in 1977 to today’s community treatment centers of Mental Health America of Dutchess County (the Crisis Center, Bolger House, Florence Manor, Dowling House, sober-supported housing), the Mid-Hudson Addition Treatment Community has helped individuals deal with substance use disorders. Since 1987 the MARC Foundation has funded improvements in these treatment centers; recently the Foundation has also supported prevention and treatment of substance use disorders in various community endeavors in Dutchess County.

Kingston Rotary’s secretary Alicia Marcinkowski and president-elect Richard Cattabiani visit RadioRotary to tell about the club’s water project in the Philippines and also their annual Cap-to-Cap Run. Kingston Rotarian Rachel Jackson has connections in the Philippine Island and helped the New-York based Rotary club set up a necessary water project in conjunction with the Mandaluyong Rotary Club of Manila. The Kingston and Mandaluyong Clubs are working together toward bringing clean water to a struggling, indigenous tribe in Manilla, the Dumagats. The plan is to use solar-powered devices to operate a pipeline bring water to the Dumagat community and to provide training to Dumagats on how to maintain the equipment. Kingston Rotary, formed by the merger of the Kingston Sunrise and the lunch club, is known for its October event, the Cap-to-Cap 5-k run, which goes from the former Capitol of New York State (during the Revolution) to the temporary capitol used after the Tory forces burned Kingston on October 17, 1777.

Rachel Sawner and Tracy Keck of the First Presbyterian Crunch in Pleasant Valley visit RadioRotary to tell the story of the church’s  Box of Hope, available 24/7 for anyone who needs it. The solar-powered wooden Box with a tin roof, which Rachel built, contains donated personal care and hygiene products, first-aid kits, bottled water, and even pet food, all free for the taking by anyone. Donations to The Box can be made through the Church or by collection sites at the Pleasant Valley Free Library and at Innate Chiropractic of Wappingers Falls. The items are primarily those not available through SNAP (food-stamp program) or with EBT Cards from NYS. The Box is accessible outside the Church every day all day and night.

Executive Director Ericka Von Salews of the Vassar-Warner Home, the only nonprofit senior living residence in Dutchess County, visits RadioRotary co-hosts Jonah Triebwasser and Sarah O’Connell-Claitor for a program describing the services and remarkable story of this historic institution. The beautiful building dates from 1835 when it was built as s boys’ academy, but in 1871 it became a home for senior women. Originally Johnathan Warner operated The Old Ladies Home at the site, but in 1974, with financial help from the Smith Brothers (of cough-drop fame) the building was expanded and merged with the Vassar Home for men. Today the Vassar-Warner home, with some help from the Dutchess County Office for the Aging, is a recognized charity, which allows the home to treat and care for each resident as a member of the family rather than as a customer whose care and services are transactions. Residents do pay rent and board (low-income men and women may have it partly subsidized), and there are two levels of care available—adult homes for those in little need of medical assistance and assisted living for those who may require more help, although Vassar-Warner Home is not a nursing home, the next higher level of care.

Carmel Rotary Club President-Elect Kathleen Valletta and Carmel Rotary Jessica Vanacoro visit RadioRotary to tell about their club’s fundraiser for local charities. The Basketball Challenge. Although the Covid-19 pandemic has changed the location, so that the contest will be outdoors (in the Carmel Shoprite parking lot), in other respects the event will continue as it has for the past fourteen years. Teams support their chosen local charities—a basket by a team member means a small contribution, although those contributions add up (foxed donations also accepted). Ninety percent of the money raised by the team through pledges goes to the specified charity with the remainder, as well as donations from event sponsors, go to the Carmel Club, who will use it also to fund good works. It is a win-win situation and a win-win program.

Radio Rotary Co-Host Jonah Triebwasser and Producer Kathy Kruger chat with Angela Henry, the new Executive Director of the Poughkeepsie Public Schools Foundation (PPSF). PPSF was founded in 2008 to put musical instruments in the hands of students who could not afford to rent them. Over the years the Foundation has raised and distributed over $40,000 for projects as diverse as museum field trips, the creation of school gardens, and college scholarships. In 2021, PPSF hired Ms. Henry, a local educational and nonprofit consultant, as its first paid Executive Director. She is in the process of expanding the programs of PPSF, including the Saturday Morning Lights program for younger students, which brings local talent to introduce learning as varied as yoga and urban engineering (learning about urban streets). PPSF is a nonprofit that raises the money that makes these programs possible. On May 20, 2021, the gala fundraiser feature professional and student performers will be online.

Krista Jones, the founder of Sparrow’s Nest, the charity that provides food to the families of persons who have cancer, returns to RadioRotary to tell how the program has fared through the covid pandemic and also to promote the virtual Superhero Challenge. The Superhero Challenge is a healthy way to raise money for the charity by committing to run or walk a specific amount and also committing to donate to the program, which in 2021 was feeding two meals weekly to some 300 persons. Although Ms. Jones has continued to cook for the program, she has had to dismiss the many volunteers who helped prepare the meals before the onset of the covid pandemic, so she does it all herself with one helper. The food is geared to what a family would eat. Generally the person with cancer does not reach out to Sparrow’s Nest—often the oncologist will do that, or sometimes a family member who sees the need. Today Sparrow’s Nest operates from a kitchen in a mall, but Ms. Jones is hoping to move the project to its own farm someday.

Executive Director Lynne Meloccaro of the Dutchess County SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) visits RadioRotary via Zoom to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the organization, thought to be the 2nd-oldest SPCA organization in the United States, formed in 1871, just 5 years after the first in the US, the New York SPCA. Like all SPCA organizations, it is a nonprofit that arranges to have stray animals, mostly cats and dogs, adopted by families. In a new program for Dutchess SPCA, the animals may be placed in foster homes instead of being kept at a central location. Although best known for dealing with strayed animals, Dutchess SPCA also has arrangements with many of the towns in the country to be the animal-control officers for the town. There is much more presented in this hour concerning the good works of Dutchess SPCA.

Cara Mia Bacchiochi, recently featured on NBC’s Today Show, returns to RadioRotary to describe new efforts in her continuing ministry to Poughkeepsie women (and men) who are homeless and addicted to drugs or alcohol. For 5½ years she has been at the corner of Main and South Clinton every Saturday morning and evening, sometimes in rain or snow, with the street ministry Hope on a Mission (HOAM).  Bacchiochi and volunteers, many from local Rotary clubs, distribute food, clothing, and personal care items, restoring dignity to the homeless and addicted. Now, starting in March 2021, Hope on a Mission is adding a Tuesday night dinner in front of 690 Main Street in Poughkeepsie, a couple of blocks east of the Saturday night event, which also continues. Ms. Bacchiochi has “street cred” herself from life on the street in the 1980s. Periods of sobriety were interrupted by relapses until found herself in 2013 in the same jail cell she had occupied in 1990. While there, she recognized that her purpose in life is to  help women with lives like hers. After she was released from jail that last time, she started Hope on a Mission. Check out the website which has opportunities to volunteer or donate—and if you have not seen it before, watch The Today Show interview.

Satara Brown, founder of Rebuilding Our Children and Community, Inc.  returns to RadioRotary to tell about her work with the juvenile division of the City of Poughkeepsie police department, especially the pilot Juvenile Intervention Program.  Ms. Brown has been heavily involved in helping young persons mature and find better lives for a long time, including (but hardly limited to) founding Rebuilding Our Children and Community, Inc. Ms. Brown also is Director of Communications and Community Engagement for Day One Early Learning Community in Poughkeepsie (which is scheduled to open in 2021) and a board member of the Poughkeepsie Schools Foundation. The new Juvenile Interventions program, open to any youth needed more support, includes weekly meetings and monthly workshops, often in connection with the program’s local partners such as Hudson River Housing,  Dutchess Country Probation, Mental Health American of Dutchess County, and many others.

On February 6, 2021, the Rotary Passport Club of District 7210 had its first meeting. RadioRotary got on the case immediately, interviewing Passport Club President Samantha Alvareng, who is the guest on this show. Passport clubs are a new way for busy people to become Rotarian, since they typically meet only four times a year, although the District 7210 club is also having a Zoom meeting once a month. The basic idea is that a Passport Rotarian can work on the projects of other clubs and attend their meetings when convenient, but the Passport club is all about service and the District 7210 club already has started some service projects of their own. In some ways the Passports are like any other Rotary club, with officers, a Board, and dues—but the members have a lot of freedom to work on service at their own schedule. Since they do not meet weekly for meals, membership in a Passport club is less expensive than other Rotary clubs—so clubs often have more young members and retired members than usual. If you are interested in learning more or perhaps joining, you can email membership7210@gmail.com. The new club already has 20 members and is engaged in both domestic and international projects.

Rotarian Marissa Williams of the Stow-Munroe Falls (Ohio) Rotary Club, who visited RadioRotary via Zoom for this show, has a longer association with Rotary than her year and a half in her Rotary Club. It started when she was a freshman at Millbrook High School when she joined that school’s Interact Club (sponsored by Millbrook Rotary). During her four years of high school she continued to be active and was president of the club twice. As she approached graduation she was awarded the principal scholarship Millbrook Rotary offers. She continued a life of service in college as part of the Circle K service club, then spent two years in the Peace Corps before settling down in Akron, immediately joining the Rotary Club near her home. At 24, she became part of the future of Rotary.

Dr. Anil K. Vaidian, Dutchess Country Commissioner of Behavioral and Community Health visits RadioRotary to present the latest information about COVID-19 and the vaccines that prevent it. COVID-19 is the disease caused by a brand-new virus, SARS-CoV-2, so our immune systems are not prepared to deal with it. It is very infectious, so once it began to spread from human to human, a worldwide pandemic occurred. One of the main ways to slow the spread of the disease is to wear a mask with at least two layers of protection whenever you are indoors with other persons. The spread will be stopped when about 80 percent of the population has been vaccinated against the disease. Dr. Vaidian provides on the program detailed advice about both mask wearing and vaccines.

Millbrook, NY, is home base for the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, although the scientists connected with the Institute may work anywhere that their studies take them. The Millbrook main building, situated on 2,000 acres of study sites and trails, was among the most ecosystem friendly when it was constructed in 1978, but now is out of date and in need of repair and renewal. On this program, Catherine Forbes, Director of Advancement for the Institute, describes what the construction is all about and also some of the Institutes programs. Thirteen principal scientist work from the Institute, each with post-docs and technicians forming their teams as they investigate such topics of local interest as tick-borne diseases or the Hudson River ecology. Among the local benefits of having the Institute nearby are the many programs as each of the scientists (as well as visiting experts) provide free programs on their work. The Institute also provides summer educational programing for younger children and participates in Data Jam, which uses art to explain science.

Highland Rotarian and District 7210 President (2020-21) Tony Marmo is the guest on this RadioRotary program. His District of 56 Rotary clubs (including the brand-new Passport Rotary Club) is participating in the Million Mask Challenge, a program started by a Connecticut Rotarian that is designed to provide face masks to organizations. Face masks have been called the best way to stop the spread of the covid-19 pandemic, especially important because of slow progress in vaccinations against the disease. As part of this program 37 District Rotary clubs managed to distribute 137,000 face masks (mostly surgical masks, but also some masks for children and N95 masks for health-care workers). These have been given to such organizations as senior-citizen centers, food pantries, fire departments, and more. Tony Marmo, when not engaged in Rotary activities, is president and owner of Normann Staffing, a source of temporary workers and an employment agency in Kingston, NY.
