New City Rotary Club and Jawonio Inc. (Aired on March 3rd and 4th, 2018)

New City Rotary and Jawonio (Aired on March 3 & 4, 2018)
In this program, devoted to the close relationship between a Rotary Club and an important local resource, RadioRotary interviews New City Rotarians Madelon Burger, Robert Pitkofsky, and Jill Warner (executive director and CEO of Jawonio) along with Jerry Staller, director of educational and clinical services at Jawonio, which supplies lifespan services for persons with special needs primarily to Rockland County. Jawonio is a Native American word that means “independence,” representing the goal to help children and adults with special needs reach their full potential and helping them become as independent as possible. It is a unique residence and school resource that helps persons from as young as 2-months old to as old as 99 years. New City Rotary has been closely involved with Jawonio for over fifty years. As the facilities, started as a camp in 1947, have age, it has come time for new buildings, including new cabins for a summer program. New City Rotary is helping not only with funding this new construction, but also is working with Jawonio to create the Nature Path for outdoor activities. Listen to this pair of double interviews to learn more about this fascinating partnership.

Mark Fredette of Sprout Creek Farm (Aired on October 28, 2017 and October 29, 2017)

Sprout Creek Farm (Aired on October 28 & 29, 2017)

Sprout Creek Farm is a 200-acre dairy farm 

started by two nuns who had begun to teach children and teenagers about farming and food at a farm in Greenwich, Connecticut. They were very lucky when the farm was donated to the Society of the Sacred Heart with the requirement that the land be used for education and that the farm be run as a nonprofit enterprise. In this RadioRotary interview, the farm’s Executive Director Mark Fredette, who is also the chef for the farm,describes the many educational programs run by the farm, including a sleepover camp, a day camp, and arrangements for schools to visit as field trips, often staying overnight. The farm’s cows and goats produce milk that is made into delicious cheeses that are sold locally and at the farm. The farm also sells many other farm products, including meat, eggs, and vegetables raised in the farm garden.   (Please click “Download” to hear broadcast).
