A good example of how a Rotary club works on the local level can be found in this Club Close-up interview featuring the Red Hook Rotary Club, which emphasizes two of its many local projects. Niki Weaver, Past President, describes her Therapy Dogs project, including the training required and the dogs’ successes, especially with stroke victims. Red Hook Rotarians, including Dave Wright and Bruce Martin, also describe the club’s yearly signature project, the Apple Blossom Festival. The Festival, this year held on May 11, is a strong community event involving a multitude of activities, such as food booths, craft vendors, live entertainment, a petting zoo, and church-run flea markets. Red Hook Interact (the high school service club sponsored by Red Hook Rotary) also describes its fundraiser, which will bring clean water wells to Africa.
