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.

Feeding the Hudson Valley (Aired on October 1 and 2, 2016)

Feeding the Hudson Valley (Aired on October 1 and 2, 2016)

Margot Schulman, manager of The Lunch Box for Dutchess Outreach, and  Rich Schiafo, deputy executive director of the Hudson Valley Regional Council, tell RadioRotary about efforts to prevent food insecurity in the Hudson Valley, starting with an event at the Walkway Over the Hudson for which a number of local agencies are providing a free meal entirely made from “recused food.”  Rescued food may be food prepared for an event that was not utilized, food gleaned from farms after harvest, unserved restaurant food, or food removed from grocery shelves for one reason or another. Estimates are that 20% of food is wasted in the United States, while in Poughkeepsie more than half the students in elementary or high school are at a poverty level that makes them eligible for free lunches. Also in Poughkeepsie, The Lunch Box, which supplies free lunches and dinners, has many needy clients daily. Rescued healthy food can help the effort to reduce food insecurity.

Pleasant Valley Weekends (Aired on September 3 and 4, 2016)

Many of the villages and hamlets in Dutchess County choose a day or weekend in the fall to celebrate local organizations and to entertain their residents and visitors. These include Hardscrabble Days in Red Hook and Community Day in Millbrook. For about forty years, one of these celebrations has been Pleasant Valley Weekend in the hamlet and town of Pleasant Valley. In this interview, Pleasant Valley Rotarian (and RadioRotary producer) Kathy Kruger tells about the Pleasant Valley Weekend of 2016. This was the 20th anniversary of the Rotary rubber-duck race in Wappingers Creek, a popular fundraiser. Pleasant Valley Rotary also runs the beer tent, one of the many sources of food and drink at the Friday through Sunday festival. There are carnival rides, several parades, community booths of all kinds, and fireworks at the end, all accompanied by music by several local bands. The town comes out each year in large numbers to enjoy a great weekend and celebrate their community.
