Rotary International Convention in Toronto (Aired on August 4th, 2018 and August 5th, 2018)

Toronto Rotary International Convention, Part 3 (Aired on August 4 and 5, 2018)

RadioRotary interviews three distinguished Rotarians: Donna Gunn of the Lakeway/Lake Travis (Texas) Rotary Club, Peggy Rogers of Sebastopol (California) Rotary, and Rotary 2017-18 President Ian H.S. Riseley of the Sandringham (Australia) Club as all visit the International Convention in Toronto, Ontario. Ms. Gunn is Special Projects Chair of Rotary 3D Limbs, which proved 3D printed limbs, primarily legs, for children in need. The printed limbs not only cost less than 1% of hand-made and fitted limbs. They can be adjusted to make an exact fit for no extra cost and are adjustable in length so that they grow with the child. Ms. Rogers is representing the Family Safety Rotary Action Group (RAG), dedicated to breaking the cycle of domestic violence, which can affect men and children as well as women. RI President Riseley looks back at his tree-planting campaign and other hallmarks of his year, as well as outlining a path for the future of Rotary.

Kristine Revelle from The American Cancer Society (Aired on July 28th and July 29th, 2018)

Mid-Hudson American Cancer Society (Aired on July 28 and 29, 2018)
Kristine Revelle of the American Cancer Society in the Mid-Hudson comes to RadioRotary to discuss the many ways that the Cancer Society is fighting the hundreds of diseases that we lump together as cancer.

The Society emphasizes education about the causes of cancer, advocacy for cancer issues with local and national governments, research on the causes and cures of cancer, and services for the victims of cancer. The Mid-Hudson Region has been at the forefront of cancer=prevent studies since 1959. Ms. Revelle tells listeners ways that they can reduce their risk of developing cancer and outlines resources from the Society to help in recovery. Events, such as the annual Breast Cancer Walk and the campaign “Real Men Wear Pink” help not only to raise money for the Society but also create awareness.

Pleasant Valley Weekend with Mary Albrecht (Aired on July 21st and July 22nd, 2018)

Pleasant Valley Weekend Fun (Aired on July 21 and 22, 2018)

Mary Albrecht of the Town of Pleasant Valley visits RadioRotary to describe the annual festival known as Pleasant Valley Week end, which has moved from its previous time in September to July. The event features three separate parades through the hamlet—a motorcycle parade on Friday, the big parade and fireworks on Saturday, and a parade of automobiles on Sunday. Most of the events and activities during the event are aimed at children (although Pleasant Valley Rotary runs a beer-and-wine tent), including a Ferris wheel and other rides, contests of various kinds, and a “Little Miss Pleasant Valley” pageant for girls 5 to 7 years old. But the whole family can enjoy the bands, the country music, and the typical carnival foods, as well as the race of plastic ducks down nearby Wappingers Creek.
