RadioRotary interviewers took advantage of the International Rotary Convention in Atlanta, Georgia, to interview some of the many humanitarian leaders who also attended the convention. In this broadcast, you can learn about how Destiny Rescue fights human trafficking and sex exploitation of children and youth all over the world; about the LifePump, which uses the Archimedean Screw to lift water from wells too deep for other pumps (and only needs human power, not
electricity or petroleum-based fuels); about the Rotary Dictionary Project, which supplies individual elementary and secondary school students with one of 8 different dictionaries in English or 22 in other languages; about the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which is based in Atlanta; and about the goals of Rotary International President for 2016-17 John Germ and the projects
that he sponsored during his year as president.

The Boy Scouts (Aired on July 15 and 16 2017)

Renewal for 91-Year-Old Scout Camp (Aired on June 15 and 16, 2017)

Camp Nooteeming in Pleasant Valley has been serving the scouting community for 91 years, but newly arrived Scout Executive/CEO for the Hudson Valley Council of the Boy Scouts of America, David Horton, recognized that the Camp is in serious need of renovation to become a resident camp. Volunteer Dave Petrovich has taken charge of the project. Together for a joint interview on RadioRotary, they describe plans to set up camping centers for specific topics, events, and skills, including centers devoted to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics); shooting sports; the environment; crafts; and more. Scouts, including Cub Scouts as young as age 5 and Girl Scouts, will use the renovated facilities along with other community groups. In an interesting sidelight, Program Co-Host Jonah Triebwasser tells about how Rotary and scouting have been linked since the earliest days of both service organizations.
