4H Fair With Marjorie L. Nicholas Keith (Aired on July 22, 2017 and July 23, 2017)

Putnam Country 4-H Program (Aired on July 22 and 23, 2017)

Marjorie Nichols Keith , Executive Director of the Putnam Country Cornell Cooperative Extension, brings 4-H Club member Grace Fisher (11 years old) to
RadioRotary to help tell about 4-H programs and the annual Putnam County 4-H Fair in Veteran Memorial Park in Carmel. The 200-some 4-H members in the County, ages 5 through 19, are joined by as many as 300 other volunteers to produce the Fair. Although we often think of 4-H in terms of young people raising livestock, Grace explains that the club helps teach leadership and life skills —“it’s not all about cows and cooking.” The Fair is a big family event with food booths, music, a plant sale, horse and dog shows, an auction, and activities such as Touch a Truck and a fishing contest. Putnam Country Rotary Clubs often sponsor tents at the Fair.

The Mutt Strutt (Aired on May 13th 2017 and May 14th 2017)

The Mutt Strut (Aired on May 13 and 214, 2017)
RadioRotary interviews Kingston-Sunrise Rotary President Alicia Marcinkowski about the club’s fundraiser known as “The Mutt Strut.” This is a chance for owners of all breeds (or nonbreeds) of dogs to bring their pets to the Kingston Point Dog Park, where prizes are awarded in many categories: e.g. best-behaved dog, best-looking, look-alikes, and more. The event is partnered with SUNY Ulster’s Veterinary-Technical (“Vet-Tech”) club and the nearby Smorgasburg is available for the humans who want to eat during the event.
There are numerous booths from vendors of pet-related materials. The event includes demonstrations of dog-related materials and speakers on dog-related topics. It concludes with the dog parade. Money raised at the event, which is free to participants but not to vendors, will help support two international projects (books for Kenya and toys for Ethiopia and Bosnia) as well as many local
organizations.

Red Hook’s 2017 Apple Blossom Day (Aired on May 6 and 7, 2017)

Red Hook’s 2017 Apple Blossom Day (Aired on May 6 and 7, 2017)

Once again RadioRotary visits Red Hook Rotary’s club meeting to learn about Apple Blossom Day and other activities of the Red Hook Club. Rotarian Dave
Wright is in charge of the 2017 Apple Blossom Day, the street festival that traditionally kicks off the spring-summer season of activity, as it has done for more than 30 years (the last 17 operated by Red Hook Rotary). In addition to several dance and music performances on the stage erected for this event, there are about a hundred craft vendors, very many food vendors, and—for the children—pony rides, a bouncy house, face painting, and a petting zoo. Rotarian Susan Simon is in charge of the hot-dog grill. The Rotary club does much more
then the annual Apple Blossom Day. Rotarian Linda Greenblatt speaks about the Red Hook Business Directory and about the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA). Rotarian Christine Chale describes Red Hook’s participation in
international Youth Exchange.

New Year’s Eve Millbrook (Aired on December 17 and 18, 2016)

New Year’s Eve Millbrook (Aired on December 17 and 18, 2016)
Rotarian
Joyce Heaton
(Millbrook Rotary), who has chaired the annual
event New Year’s Eve Millbrook for 13 years, describes the family-
friendly way that the Millbrook community and visitors celebrate the
last day of each year—with music, puppets, circus and magic acts, and
other entertainments. Many local foundations, businesses, and
individuals fund the free event, but it is run almost entirely by
volunteers from Millbrook Rotary. Each year patrons can donate a
small sum to obtain a lighted button that incorporates a design by a
local student. The RadioRotary interview also describes some of the
many other activities of Millbrook Rotary, which range from annual
publication of a business directory for Millbrook and the surrounding
communities through provision of local school children with school
supplies their families might be able to afford to donations of free
dictionaries and other books to local schools. The club also helps fund
local organizations and international projects.
