The Haiti Water Project (Aired on June 2 and June 3rd 2018)

Haiti Clean Water Program (Aired on June 2 and 3, 2018) Liberty (NY) Rotarians Gary Silver and Gary Siegel report to RadioRotary on an

important program that they have been developing and monitoring, including their 16 trips to Haiti. Working with the Rotary Club deCap-Haïtien, the Liberty Club has distributed over a thousand two-bucket water filtration systems to families in Cap-Haïtien, a historic city of about 200,000 whose water supply is not potable (suitable for drinking). This effort began as a Rotary District 2710 grant but now is funded largely by a Rotary Foundation Global Grant, which pays about $105 per family, including the cost of technicians who install the system, teach the family
how to use it, and monitor it twice a month thereafter. The Liberty Club is best known for providing and coordinating disaster relief after hurricanes Katrina on the Gulf Coast, Harvey in Houston, and Maria in Puerto Rico, although they also are involved in many local community projects.

Toni Hokanson and Touch A Truck (Aired on May 26 and May 27th, 2018)

Touch a Truck in New Paltz (Aired on May 26 and 27, 2018)

New Paltz Rotarian Toni Hokanson visits RadioRotary to promote the annual “Touch-a-Truck” fair at Ulster County Fairgrounds. While the basic attraction for kids are the trucks, with a chance to climb all over them and sound their horns, the inexpensive family outing includes much more in the way of free entertainment, ranging from the Hurd’s Family Cow Train (cars shaped like cars, pulled by a tractor) to the giant pile of mulch for young mountain-climbers to tackle. The only additional expense is for fair food or a helicopter ride. “Touch-a-Truck” is a major fundraiser for New Paltz Rotary, despite the low per person admission (truck exhibitors also support it with entrance fees), which helps support the good works of the club. These include a weekly food-backpack program for children in the New Paltz schools who would otherwise be food deprived and scholarships, including a new 2-year scholarship to SUNY Ulster College for students whose parents did not attend college. There is much more to be heard.

Doug Sturmonski on Peace and Polio Walks (Aired on May 12 and May 13, 2018)

Our Rotary District’s Peace Ambassador (Aired on May 12 and 13, 2018)
Greater Newburgh Rotarian Doug Sturomski, the unofficial Peace Ambassador for Rotary District 7210, returns to RadioRotary to report on two projects related to his peace mission. In this interview, he announces that he recently has dedicated or planted 10 Peace Poles at local schools. The Peace Poles for Rotary District 7210 are 8-feet high, resemble the Washington Monument, and have the message “May Peace prevail upon the Earth” in 8 languages. Another District peace project that he describes is the “Walk for Peace and Polio” at the Walkway over the Hudson, which not only promoted peace but also raised money to support the eradication of polio, one of the main goals of The Rotary
Foundation in recent years.
