Victim Safety/Domestic Abuse (Aired on May 20 and May 21 2017)

A Center for Victim Safety and Support (Aired on May 20 and 21, 2017)

Leah Feldman , Director of the Center for Victim Safety and Support at Family Services in Dutchess County, and volunteer Kathleen Paluso discuss the various ways the Center aids victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and other crimes. Two hot lines connect directly to assistance: (845)485-5550 for domestic violence and (845)452-7272 for victims of rape or other crimes. The Center can help a victim find shelter from an abuser or work with the courts in providing protection. Licensed counselors are available around the
clock. Much of the RadioRotary program is concerned with the causes
of domestic violence and ways that victims can cope.

Love Holds Life (Aired on April 15, 2017 and April 16, 2017)

Love Holds Life Children’s Cancer Foundation (Aired on April 15 and 16, 2017)

Richard Senato tells RadioRotary the inspiring story of Love Holds Life, a foundation whose mission is to pay all of the otherwise out-of-pocket expenses of  a family with a child fighting cancer, a project that is sponsored in part by Patterson Rotary. It began when Mr. Senato became inspired to help an eleven-year-old child in a Patterson family.  After covering over $73,000 in out-of-pocket expenses for his family, that child in now eighteen and cancer free. Since that start, Love Holds Life has helped finance cancer treatment for over twenty children, financed by donations from individuals, foundations, corporations, and local organizations, including Rotary. Donors have a choice of supporting the Family Medical Fund, 100% of that money going to the affected families, or the Legacy Fund that supports the operating costs of the foundation—sponsors can choose to support both, also. Weekly community outreach programs are a primary means of reaching donors.

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.

The Two by Two Zoo (Aired on November 19 and 20, 2016)

The Two by Two Zoo (Aired on November 19 and 20, 2016)

Heather Iannucci and her family recognized in 1993 that their collection of animals was of interest to children and many adults as well, so they formed the Two by Two Zoo to be a traveling petting experience.  Soon they began to acquire other animals, often pets that their owners could no longer care for, but also animals rescued by agencies such as the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA), which also registers the traveling zoo. Today the zoo is run by Heather and her daughter Jennifer (Mr. Iannucci works at a regular job) and concentrates on providing petting experiences as schools, libraries, and similar institutions in the Hudson Valley. For the RadioRotary interview, Mrs. Iannucci was accompanied by Sydney, a young kangaroo who said little during the program.
