“Soup, Soap, and Salvation” (Aired on April 29 and 30, 2017)
Peekskill Rotarian Lt. Colonel Carole Voisey tells Jonah Triebwasser and Kathy Kruger the story of the Salvation Army, its activities, and her involvement with it, starting with 6 generations in the Church on her father’s side and five on her mother’s. In Peekskill, the Salvation Army runs a soup kitchen, a food pantry, and a children’s after-school homework help program, while different arm of the Salvation Army runs the thrift store selling donated goods whose sales fund residential centers for rehabilitating alcoholics and addicts. Together, the branches of the Salvation Army fulfill a slogan of General William Booth, who founded the Church in 1895: “Soup, Soap, and Salvation. Lt. Colonel Voisey also tells her fascinating personal
story, starting as a Cadet and helping train officers in the Salvation Army in Russia and other parts of Eastern Europe, and outlines plans for a “battle of the bells,” which will pit individuals and service organization in raising money at holiday time.

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.

Vassar-Haiti Project Update (Aired on October 26 and 27, 2016)
In response to the September 11, 2001, attack Andrew Meade, director of
international students at Vassar College, and his wife Lila wanted to start a
project that would do good in the world. Both had family ties to Haiti, the poorest
nation in the Western Hemisphere, so that is where their impulse took them. For
fifteen years, the Vassar-Haiti project the started and still direct has improved the
lives of Haitians in the remote village of Chermaitre, starting with building and
staffing a school. Today Chermaitre and the surrounding area is also served by a
clinic that is part of the project. Vassar junior Clairiola Etienne, who is the
director of the health initiative, and Lila Meade are the guests on RadioRotary for
this program. The Vassar-Haiti project is now working to provide clean water for
Chermaitre thanks to a global grant of $55,000 from The Rotary Foundation,
sponsored locally by the Poughkeepsie-Arlington and Peekskill Rotary Clubs.

Community Policing in the Town of Lloyd (Aired on October 8 and 9, 2016)

Community Policing in the Town of Lloyd (Aired on October 8 and 9, 2016)

Jonah Triebwasser and RadioRotary Producer Kathy Kruger interview Police Chief Daniel Waage of the Town of Lloyd in Ulster County about his program of community policing. Community policing is a law-enforcement philosophy that involves the systematic use of community partnerships to address proactively the conditions that give rise to crime, social disorder, or fear of police. Chief Waage has followed this philosophy from the 2012 start of his work in Lloyd, focusing especially on helping children (and their parents) and senior citizens. The Lloyd Police, working on their own time, produce or participate in fundraising events for local needs. Chief Waage has also instituted programs such as Project CARE, which checks daily on the status of enrolled senior citizens. Educational outreach is provided through classes in such topics as active shooter response training and forums and classes dealing with narcotics abuse. Community involvement includes a Lloyd police sergeant who is a member of Highland Rotary.
