    A New Kind of Rotary Club (Aired on February 21, 2021)

    A New Kind of Rotary Club (Aired on February 21, 2021)

    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.

    A Young Person’s Path through Rotary (Aired on February 14, 2021)

    A Young Person’s Path through Rotary (Aired on February 14, 2021)

    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.

    COVID-19 Facts from Health Commissioner (Aired on February 7, 2021)

    COVID-19 Facts from Health Commissioner (Aired on February 7, 2021)

    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.

    World Famous Cary Institute in Millbrook (Aired on January 31, 2021)

    World Famous Cary Institute in Millbrook (Aired on January 31, 2021)

    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.

    Rotary’s Million Mask Challenge (Aired on January 24, 2021)

    Rotary’s Million Mask Challenge (Aired on January 24, 2021)

    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.

    Virtual Video Visits from Pets (Aired on January 17, 2021)

    Virtual Video Visits from Pets (Aired on January 17, 2021)

    Animal Farm Foundation Manager Nicole Juchem visits RadioRotary via Zoom to tell RadioRotary listeners about a new program from the Animal Farm Foundation geared to easing the social isolation that the covid-19 lock-downs are causing: virtual pet visits. Starting with a visit to the Pets Together website https://petstogether.org/, you can book your virtual pet visit. The website includes a choice of cats and dogs (and even cows and horses) that will visit the lonely human via Zoom—along with the pet’s owner who will be happy to engage in friendly talk. Animal Farm Foundation’s main work is training shelter dogs to become useful service dogs and also to work to improve the public image of dogs taken to be pit bulls. The new Pets Together program is a welcome addition to their mission.
