Rotary International Show From Toronto Canada Show 2 (Aired on July 14 and July 15th, 2018)

Toronto Rotary International Convention, Part 2 (Aired on July 14 and 15, 2018)

Here are four more stories of people putting service before self from the 2018 Toronto Rotary International Convention. Sole 4 Souls not only distributes shoes and other clothing around the world, but also creates sustainable jobs in third-world nations. World Bicycle Relief does not provide relief for bicycles, but provides bicycles for relief of travel problems in places with bad roads or none. The specially designed bicycles are strong enough for bumpy rides and easy to
repair if needed. Rise Against Hunger recognizes that there is food enough for every person on the planet, but 815 million people, many of them children, go hungry because food is unequally distributed. The volunteers at Rise Against Hunger work on assembly lines to produce nourishing food packages; often the volunteers are Rotarians. Rotary is most known, however, for its steps to end polio now, which is discussed by Al Bonney of Traverse City Rotary. Mr. Bonney emphasizes the problems of post-polio syndrome as well as updating the fight to eradicate polio.

Rotary International Convention in Toronto Canada (Aired on July 7 and July 8th 2018)

Toronto Rotary International Convention, Part 1 (Aired on July 7 and 8, 2018)

Each year RadioRotary takes its microphone to the Rotary International Convention, which in 2018 is in Toronto, Ontario. Some 24,000 Rotarians are in attendance and RadioRotary gets as many of the great stories as it can. One of the interviews in this show is with Ellen Haggerty, a Pleasant Valley Rotarian whose mission to improve hearing and make life easier for those who are hearing impaired takes her all over the world. Her organization, Rotarians for Hearing, is one of the many Rotary Action Groups, or RAGs, that deal with specific issues.  Another interview concerts a different RAG, this one uniting Rotarians around the world to help prevent opioid addiction as well as other forms of  addiction.  Disaster Aid USA is not a RAG, but instead is a club-based Rotary project that started with a Bethesda, MD, Rotary Club, but now has chapters in clubs all over the US and sister organizations in Europe and Southeast Asia. One of the highlights of the RadioRotary interviews at the International Convention is the interview with the new president of Rotary International; fir 2018-19, it is Barry Rassin from the Rotary Club of East Nassau in the Bahamas.

PDG Christine about the fun and fellowship of Rotary (Aired on June 23rd & 24th, 2018)

District Governor 2018-19 Christine Giangrasso (Aired on June 23 and 24, 2018)

A long-standing tradition of RadioRotary is the interview with each incoming District Governor (DG) of District 7210, the person who will lead the 55 clubs in 8 counties that make up the District. From July 1, 2018, to June 30, 2018, that person will be Christine (“Chrissy G.”) Giangrasso of the Highland Rotary Club. DG Giangrasso brings to the District an attitude of “We Can Do It,” inspired by World War II’s Rosy the Riveter, Sylvia Whitlock (first woman Rotarian in 1987), and the women of Rotary—but not leaving out the men of Rotary. Among her goals for the 2018-19 Rotary Year are revving up the fight against opioid addiction and engaging with the 46 Interact clubs of the District. As a member of Highland Rotary as well as DG, she will be involved in that club’s annual fundraiser, the August Ribfest at Ulster  Fairgrounds, which is not only a fundraiser for Rotary but also for every charitable organization that participates.

Sitting: District Governor Christine Giangrasso; Standing: Jonah Triebwasser and Sarah O’Connell
