Kristine Revelle from The American Cancer Society (Aired on July 28th and July 29th, 2018)

Mid-Hudson American Cancer Society (Aired on July 28 and 29, 2018)
Kristine Revelle of the American Cancer Society in the Mid-Hudson comes to RadioRotary to discuss the many ways that the Cancer Society is fighting the hundreds of diseases that we lump together as cancer.

The Society emphasizes education about the causes of cancer, advocacy for cancer issues with local and national governments, research on the causes and cures of cancer, and services for the victims of cancer. The Mid-Hudson Region has been at the forefront of cancer=prevent studies since 1959. Ms. Revelle tells listeners ways that they can reduce their risk of developing cancer and outlines resources from the Society to help in recovery. Events, such as the annual Breast Cancer Walk and the campaign “Real Men Wear Pink” help not only to raise money for the Society but also create awareness.

Pleasant Valley Weekend with Mary Albrecht (Aired on July 21st and July 22nd, 2018)

Pleasant Valley Weekend Fun (Aired on July 21 and 22, 2018)

Mary Albrecht of the Town of Pleasant Valley visits RadioRotary to describe the annual festival known as Pleasant Valley Week end, which has moved from its previous time in September to July. The event features three separate parades through the hamlet—a motorcycle parade on Friday, the big parade and fireworks on Saturday, and a parade of automobiles on Sunday. Most of the events and activities during the event are aimed at children (although Pleasant Valley Rotary runs a beer-and-wine tent), including a Ferris wheel and other rides, contests of various kinds, and a “Little Miss Pleasant Valley” pageant for girls 5 to 7 years old. But the whole family can enjoy the bands, the country music, and the typical carnival foods, as well as the race of plastic ducks down nearby Wappingers Creek.

Mary Ann Coe and Vincent Marzella talk Stuff The Bus (Aired on June 9th and June 10th 2018)

Total Transportation for Local Charities (Aired on June 9 and 10, 2018) RadioRotary interviews two employees of Total Transportation Corp., a business that goes out of its way to help local community organizations such as Rotary clubs.  Vincent Marzello is the Regional Director of Operations, working out of Wappinger Falls, while MaryAnne Coe is the Location Manager in that office.  Marzello and Coe describe how they loan out equipment, often with volunteer drivers (regular employees who volunteer their time), to chairitable organizations such as Pleasant Valley Rotary. The Rotary club regularly runs a “Stuff the Bus” campaign for the local food pantry, and Total Transportation provides the bus, which (festooned with a large sign) is parked in a supermarket lot until donors have filled it with food, which the bus then transmits to the food pantry. In some other recent charitable events, Total Transportation carried supplies for Puerto Rican victims of Hurricane Maria from Dutchess County; they also collected
backpacks of school supplies, drove children to the Kids Expo and to the Ulster Country Fair, and participated in Touch a Truck.
