Description

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.
