Rotary’s Ribfest Restaurant Revival (Aired on August 16, 2020)
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.
