Scott Oatkin, Political Affairs Ambassador for The Borgen Project, visits RadioRotary (via Zoom) to describe the efforts that he and other volunteers are making to encourage the United State Government to do more to help end world poverty. Around the world more than 700 million people live in extreme poverty, and The Borgen Project is dedicated to the proposition that the world’s richest nation should be leading efforts to improve economies. A better world economy would be better for the United States as well. The Borgen Project got started 7 years ago when Clint Borgen was a volunteer in Kosovo and saw first-hand how many people live without enough food or other necessities because of low income. More recently Mr. Oatkin also experienced how really impoverished people live when he was a part of the Rhinebeck Interact’s mission to build a school in rural Nicaragua, which led to his involvement in The Borgen Project. Rhinebeck Interact is a high-school club sponsored by Rhinebeck Rotary. Mr. Oatkin is now a junior political science major at NYU.   As a Borgen Project Ambassador, he lobbies government officials to do more about world poverty.

Foundation Manager Nicole Juchem visits RadioRotary via Zoom to describe the many ways that the Animal Farm Foundation improves the way dogs, especially those who have been discriminated against because of appearance or breed, are accepted and also how their other programs training dogs or using their special qualities help people across the United States. Although the Animal Farm Foundation is based in a large farm in Amenia, NY, it works around the nation to rid localities of laws or covenants that discriminate against particular canine breeds or dogs who are perceived as “pit bulls.” The Foundation also takes rescue dogs and trains them to be service dogs that can aid humans with vision, hearing, or anxiety problems. Their Paw of Purpose at Rikers Island Prison enlists prisoners to work with dogs to the benefit of both the dogs and the prisoners. Volunteers for Pets Together are using dogs and other pets to aid persons who have been socially isolated by the pandemic or just by life. There is much more that the Animal Farm Foundation is doing, so listen to this great interview and learn.

Highland Rotarians Steve Laubach and Peter Rein visit RadioRotary via Zoom to tell how the club’s annual Ribfest has been reconfigured for the Covid-19 era. Due to the New York State Covid-19 guidelines, the Highland Rotary Club  decided to cancel the 2020 Hudson Valley Ribfest at the Ulster County Fairgrounds scheduled for August 21–23, 2020. The organizers recognized that the essence of the festival was food and music, while the goal of a Rotary club is to help the community, so they have developed a way to do both. Rotary’s Ribfest Restaurant Revival is configured to help the area’s restaurants, all of which have been suffering from the pandemic and at the same time make it possible for the public to enjoy a great meal. At the same time, the club has arranged a YouTube concern of local musicians to take place during the festival days. Listen to the program and also visit their Website for the details of how this all will work. And, the club is  planning to return to the fairgrounds next year on August 20–22, 2021 with an even bigger live event.

Daniela Pulice, Director of the Pleasant Valley Free Library, returns to the RadioRotary microphones to tell the co-hosts about the amazing progress the Library has made since the old building and collection were destroyed by fire on election day, 2018. Thanks to the generous gift of the use of a former grocery store by Pleasant Valley realtor Herb Redl, the Library was able to re-open in the donated quarters just three months after the fire, although it then had to close again for three months in 2020 due to COVID-19; but since June, 2020, has re-opened in the new space. The community has been generous to the organization that is central to its identity—donating some 25,000 books to replace the lost collection and a considerable amount of cash to build a new Library building on the old site. About $3 million is needed for rebuilding, and with insurance money, grants, and donations, the Library is more than two-thirds of way to reach that goal. Listen to the program to learn about the many activities and offerings available now and consider donating to the wonderful organization.

It is the custom each year for a Rotary District to elect a new governor, and on RadioRotary it is the custom to interview the incoming governor. For the Rotary year 2020-21, which began on July 1, the new District Governor (DG) of District 7210 is Tony Marmo from the Highland (NY) Rotary Club. Mr. Marmo is the 74th District Governor and has been deeply involved with his club and the District for a long time. He has been president of Highland Rotary 3 times in his 35 years as a Rotarian. In Rotary, there is extensive training as a person passes from District Nominee, to District-Governor Elect, to District Governor (and then to Past District Governor (PDG) with continuing involvement in a Council of advisors). The current group of incoming and outgoing DGs has agreed to work as a team, which has been very effective. The goal of the team is to grow Rotary in District 7210—like many volunteer organizations, membership has been slipping in recent years, and Mr. Marmo and the team are determined to turn that trend around. Mt. Marmo also has a closer association to RadioRotary than other DGs because he is also business manager of the RadioRotary Board.

The Dutchess Country branch currently has 1,004 volunteers, and also Mr. Ryan has also won the nationally given Mentor Award for its coordination with surrounding county MRCs. The volunteers are almost exactly split between medical personnel and those with no prior medical training. The many preparedness programs offered by Dutchess MRC include classes in stopping bleeding, overdose recovery, suicide prevention, tick safety, and hands-only CPR. During the COVID-19 epidemic, MRC has been part of contact tracing, monitoring victims who are living at home, and providing food or prescription delivery when necessary.

Rob Raylman, CEO of Gift of Life International and 2020-21 president of the Manhasset Rotary Club, visits RadioRotary on Zoom to discuss the latest projects of the humanitarian organization that he heads. The purpose of Gift of Life International is to treat children with heart disease and where necessary to provide nutritional assistance to recovering children. Originally children were brought to the US for pediatric surgery, but since 2009 Gift of Life International has focused largely on creating “Core Programs” that develop regional centers in emerging nations, which, when they are ready, become “Legacy Programs” that are backed by the country’s national government and a working pediatric hospital. Gift of Life International began as an idea raised at a lunch at the Manhasset Rotary just 13 years ago, although Gift of Life missions go back to 1975. The medical staff and their helpers are all volunteers, while the main costs of the operations and training are borne by The Rotary Foundation, mostly through global grants. The Legacy Programs become self-sustaining and also improve the economy of an emerging nation.

Andrew O’Grady, Executive Director of Mental Health American Dutchess County (MHA) and the Mid-Hudson Recovery Centers, Inc. (MARC) returns to the RadioRotary microphones to talk about how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected mental health, a veterans’ program, homelessness, and addiction. As MHA and MARC move toward a complete merger in 2021, the 200 full-time employees and 70 part-timers are deemed essential and so are still working, although mostly from home and on the telephone. But some programs must continue face to face, albeit with adaptations to stem spread of disease. For example, MARC residential treatment and sober housing programs are based in specific centers. The MHA homeless shelter must run from its location as well. The Vet-2-Vet help for military veterans by other veterans will come to where it is needed. All in all, MHA/MARC is even more active as the county confronts the coronavirus than it had been during the old normal. Anyone who needs the services provided by this organization can reach them at (845)473-2500.

Millbrook Rotarian Brian Fried, Assistant Superintendent for Business, Finance, and Operations at the Millbrook Central School District, visits RadioRotary to describe how the District is handling the dislocation of normal practices caused by the steps required by New York State to slow the spread of COVID-19. Schools in Dutchess County were all required to stop holding live classes in mid-March, with a significant amount of the school year unfinished. Among the steps that Mr. Fried describes are making sure that every student has broadband access and a computer so that they can participate with classes and in interactions with teachers or school psychologists; arranging with the cafeteria staff and drivers to see that 175 students under age 18 who need nutrition assistance get breakfast and lunch delivered 7 days a week; and maintaining school spirit with car parades and signs on the lawns of all graduating seniors, as well as planning a memorable graduation event. No one knows exactly what future problems must be faced, but this program reveals that the Millbrook Central Schools are getting ready for anything.

Rotarian Jason Gonzales, president of the E-Club of Wall Street, visits RadioRotary via Zoom to tell how the former Wall Street Rotary became an online E-club and still continues to do good in the world. When the Rotary Club of Wall Street recognized in 2018 that it was barely hanging in with only 10 active members, the members decided to reconstitute as an online E-club, which today is up to 32 members in 13 countries around the world. The members meet by Zoom from their respective locations at noon (Wall Street time—it is 6:00 p.m. for European members). Just like in-person Rotary clubs, the E-club has speakers (often more famous than most Rotary clubs host) and engages in activities to help the community, hosting Rotary scholars, raising funds for good causes, and volunteering approximately 10 hours for every member.Today he works for UNICEF Innovation, and is appointed by Rotary International’s President as Rotary’s Youth Representative to the United Nations through which he has the responsibility of planning the annual Rotary UN Day (www.rotaryundaynyc.org).There is much more of interest in this interview than we have room to include here, so be sure to listen to the show.

Millbrook Rotarian Cindie Kish, the current 2710 District Governor, visits RadioRotary via Zoom, to tell how the 55 Mid-Hudson Rotary Clubs are helping their communities and the world get through the pandemic. Unlike many businesses and other organizations, Rotary in the Mid-Hudson has not gone dark. Clubs have found innovative ways to meet and also members are able to join weekly District meetings online. The good work of Rotary has not stopped, even though many traditional fundraisers have had to be cancelled; Rotary clubs have found ways to support not only such organizations as food pantries, but local businesses as well—for example, some clubs that can no longer meet at their favorite restaurant have helped support it by collecting take-out meals and distributing them to club members. The high-school Interact clubs sponsored by Rotary can no longer meet with schools closed, but they can still do good, perhaps by sending thank-you notes to health workers. Listen to the show to learn about the many ways Rotary continues to do good in the world in spite of the current crisis.

Erich Steffensen, Special Programs Manager at the Animal Farm Foundation in Amenia, NY, is the guest for this RadioRotary Program. The Animal Farm Foundation, although it does run an actual farm with rescue farm animals, is primary concerned with dogs—especially dogs that have been called “pit bulls” because of square-shaped heads and bulky bodies, although these are generally of no recognized breed (originally their ancestors were a cross between bulldogs and terriers, but other breeds have joined the mix over the years). One of the goals of the Foundation is to help erase the bad reputation of pit bulls for aggressive behavior. The other goal is to train shelter dogs—primarily pit bulls—for three different types of service: true service dogs, narcotic-recognizing dogs, and family pets. An early part of this training is conducted by prisoners at Riker’s Island, the “Paws of Purpose” program where the dogs go from shelters to 8 weeks at the prison. Formal training for narcotics-sniffers is conducted at a site in Texas; then the trained dogs are donated to police around the nation. Service dogs, including those who aid the hearing and mobility impaired (but not seeing-eye dogs), are trained at the farm in Amenia. All the programs are free to those who adopt the dogs, whether police who take K-9 dogs, mobility or hearing impaired persons needing help, or families that just want a friendly animal. Listen to the program and learn fascinating details about how trained dogs can solve problems and even save lives.

RadioRotary Co-Host Jonah Triebwasser interviews Rabbi Jonathan Kligler of the Woodstock Jewish Congregation in this unusual and extremely interesting program based largely on Rabbi Kligler’s book Turn It and Turn It for Everything is In It. The book’s title comes from an ancient Rabbi’s saying about the Torah scroll that is a part of every Jewish temple and used in various services. The Torah’s text consists of the first five books of the Old Testament, common to Jewish and Christian faiths, but the scroll is a special handwritten version on parchment that is a physical representation of those texts. In a temple, the scroll is on rollers so that turning the rollers reveals a different part of the text. In the interview, Rabbi Kligler’s book consists of 54 chapters, one for each week in a lunar year, each relating to a specific passage of the Torah. There are deeper meanings that are found in the creation story and in the stories of Abraham, Jacob (Israel), Joseph, and Moses. Rabbi Kligler also tells a bit about his early career teaching dancing to children and about his other role today as a musician who has worked with many of the great folk musicians of the twentieth century.

Millbrook Rotarian Jim Lubin and his wife Diane visit RadioRotary to tell how they came to be Peacekeepers for the United Nations and involved in two of the more significant conflicts at the end of the 20th Century. Jim Lubin grew up in England during World War II and as a boy observed the American Air Force heading for the D-Day invasion of Europe. As a young man be made a career of proofreading, which eventually led to his being an editor at the United Nations, where he met and married Diane. Jim thought he could do more for world peace by volunteering to lead missions that the UN conducts to help maintain peace during conflicts. When he went to oversee elections in the new nation of Namibia in southwest Africa, Diane joined him on the mission—the first husband and wife team of UN Peacekeepers. With a successful mission to Namibia behind them, the pair volunteered to help resolve the conflicts between the new nations that used to be part of Yugoslavia, but this active war was between ethnic groups who were out to kill each other and who were not going to stop just because the UN was there. Having survived the war in Croatia, Jim and Diane retired to the United States. Diane was from Oneonta, NY, and had frequently driven the Taconic to New York City, so when the Lubins looked for a retirement home, exiting the Taconic at Millbrook became the key.

Warwick Valley, NY, has a very strong Rotary Club; like other Rotaries in District 7210 (the Mid-Hudson), it has found a creative way to raise money for good causes, locally or internationally. In this show, two Warwick Rotarians—retired Lt. Col. Edward Lynch and Dr. David Dempster—describe “Bowling for a Cause,” a fun fundraiser that they produce along with the Warwick Valley High School Interact Club. A small fee paid by each bowler provides all the necessities of the sport and also food and drink during the event. The Interact Club chose four causes to support, all dealing with suicide prevention or prevention and recovery from alcoholism or drug abuse. Suicide has been major problem for veterans, so two of the groups supported by the event are the American Legion and VFW. NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) has especially effective suicide-prevention programs, while ADAC, the alcoholism and drug abuse council of Orange County, is central to those issues in the county and in nearby Rockland County. “Bowling for a Cause” raises most of its money from community sponsors—a law firm, bank, insurance agent, real estate firm, and restaurant. It is interesting to know that neither Col. Lynch nor Dr. Dempster thought they would be eligible for Rotary because they incorrectly believed that Rotary was only for businessmen. As Rotarians they are glad to have a chance to improve their community.

RadioRotary interviews Literacy Connections Coordinator for Southern and Rural Dutchess County Marian Thompson and Book Bodies Coordinator Katherine Stikkers about the annual Spelling Bee. For 29 years the organization has raised money from sponsors of two-person teams who compete for the glory of best spellers. The money is used to help Literacy Connections in its principal effort, which is to teach adults how to read, as well as in its other efforts such as the Book Buddies program—adults reading to elementary-school students. The reading program uses a state-approved tutoring program with trained volunteer to help adults gain reading skills and to tutor immigrants who have poor or no English. Although the program works all year long, the highlight of the year comes with the Spelling Bee, which in recent years has been at Marist College. Most teams are sponsored, often by Rotary Clubs, and can consist of high-school students or adults, but any two-person team can enter. The words are chosen from a dictionary and vary in difficulty. After a first round for points, the high-scorers compete until every team but one has been eliminated by misspelling a word (second chances are available). An audience is present just to enjoy the competition.
