Circle of Friends for the Dying (Aired on December 31, 2016, and January 1, 2017)

Circle of Friends for the Dying (Aired on December 31, 2016, and January 1, 2017)

RadioRotary interviews Laurie Swartz and Rev. Lynda Carré about the Death Cafés they help run as part of Circle of Friends for the Dying in Ulster and Dutchess Counties. A Death Café is a gathering of a few people in a home, a church, a restaurant, or other venue where the conversation over tea or coffee and cake is all about dying. Our population is growing older every year and death will come to all of us—many who are not very old die as well—but few are prepared for it and many don’t even want to think or talk about it. The Death Café experience, often with a speaker, is offered about once a month at various locations around Ulster and Dutchess counties. A new project for the Circle of Friends for the Dying is a home in Kingston where a person who lives alone and is close to dying will be able to live with one or two others, which many would prefer to dying in a hospital or nursing home or dying alone at home.

A Town Recreation Program (Aired on November 26 and 27, 2016)

A Town Recreation Program (Aired on November 26 and 27, 2016)

RadioRotary interviews Sandy Coe, recreation director for the Town of Pleasant Valley, NY.  Her programs span the ages from pre-school through the senior citizens of the town. Her philosophy is to listen to residents expressing their interests, then develop activities that fulfill those interests; one example, is a Pokemon program inspired by the interest of a middle-school student, an activity that soon included participants of all ages. The most visible recreation-department programs for youth are soccer and basketball teams, which compete with teams from other country towns. A special event each holiday season is the Festival of Lights, which combines a parade with many floats, food from local vendors, and encounters with Santa Claus.  The Festival is sponsored in part by Pleasant Valley Rotary along with the recreation department, the Lions Club, the historical society, and the fire department.

Senator Sue Serino: Senior Scams (Aired on November 12 & 13, 2016)

New York State Senator Sue Serino, chair of the Aging Committee, spoke to RadioRotary about telephone and Internet scams aimed at seniors, and how to avoid them. One of the most common recently in her district has been a phone call pretending to be from the IRS. The caller says that the person receiving the call is delinquent on back taxes and must pay immediately or will be sent to jail. Such a call is always a scam—the IRS does not phone delinquent payers. Another common phone scam aimed at the elderly is for the caller to pretend to be a grandchild in trouble. One clue is that the caller asks for money to be sent as a prepaid card or wired to an address that can be a drop-off. Many more scams, and how to avoid them, are discussed.
