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.

United Nations Show 3 (aired on 3-4-17 & 3-5-17)

2017 Rotary Day at the UN #3 (Aired on March 3 and 4, 2017)

RadioRotary presents several interviews from the 2016 Rotary United Nations
Day, this time centering on the activities of Rotary District 7210, the home of RadioRotary. Lou Turpin (Rhinebeck Rotary), the 2016-17 District Governor, starts the program off, emphasizing his view that the essence of Rotary can be summed up as “Do Good. Have Fun.” His interview is followed by chats with students from Red Hook Interact and Rhinebeck Interact clubs, along with Linda Greenblatt, a Rotarian advisor to the Red Hook Club. Interact Clubs in high schools are sponsored by, but run independently from, a local Rotary Club; their mission is the same as Mr. Turpin proposes, doing good and having fun. Another set of interviews brings Millbrook Rotarian Kim Sweck , who supervises Rotary Youth Exchange for Millbrook, and two of the students who have come from Italy and Brazil to spend a school year in the United States. Rotary Youth Exchange works both ways—clubs in the United States often sponsor a local high school student who will live with families in other nations.

Rotary Youth: Interact & Youth Exchange (Aired on May 21 & 22, 2016)

In a live show at Millbrook Rotary RadioRotary interviews George Ouimet, this year’s president of the Millbrook High Interact Club, and Luisa Pereira, this year’s incoming Youth Exchange (YEX) student to Millbrook Rotary. Ouimet describes recent projects of Interact, including two canned food drives, two recent blood drives, the Purple Pinkie Project, and the Scott Meyer Memorial 5K Run. George joined Interact in his sophomore year because he wanted to give back to his community. Luisa Pereira competed with 180 other students to become a YEX representative from Brazil. Being a YEX student and living with three families in the Millbrook School District for a whole school year is not the entire exchange experience. She has traveled to Vermont, Connecticut, and New Jersey, and visited New York City several times. Luisa strongly recommends the YEX experience—the best year of her life so far.

United Nations

United Nations

Rotary has had a unique role in the United Nations starting even before the UN was founded. Each year the United Nations invites more than a thousand Rotarians, members of associated groups such as Rotaract and Interact, and students participating in Rotary international Youth Exchange to come to UN headquarters in New York for panel discussions with Rotary leadership, UN ambassadors, and heads of international nongovernmental organizations. Also each year since 2009 the RadioRotary team has been there to interview some of the participants. This is the first set of interviews from 2015.
