Rotary International Convention in Atlanta Georgia (Aired on October 14th and 15th

Youth Exchange: School Year and Summer (Aired on October 14 & 15,
2017)

Youth exchange (YEX) has long been a principal way that Rotary International promotes peach through friendship and cultural understanding. Rhinebeck Rotarian Mike Frazier is the coordinator for District 7210 of a new way for Rotary to support international youth exchanges, known as summer youth exchange or more formally as short-term youth exchange. In this program a family from one country exchanges for a few weeks or a month with a family from the other country. This is different from the regular school-year exchange in which the student who is incoming from another country or outgoing to one stays with three different host families; there is no reciprocal arrangement. The school-year exchange includes learning the language of the country visited, which is not a part of the short-term exchange. In both programs, a host Rotary Club must sponsor the exchange and the applicants are vetted both by the locals clubs and YEX officers from the District.

YEX Students at Mohonk (Aired on August 5, 2017 and August 6, 2017

Youth Exchange Students from Abroad (Aired on August 5 and 6, 2017)

RadioRotary’s co-hosts Jonah Triebwasser and Sarah O’Connell call Youth Exchange Rotary’s “crown jewel.” District 7210 Youth Exchange Coordinator Nan Greenwood (District 7210 E-Club) joins the co-hosts as Youth Exchange students from Slovakia, France, Brazil, Japan, Taiwan, and Italy discuss their
experiences as part of the Rotary Youth Exchange program, where “inbound” students from around the world spend nine months attending school in the United States (meanwhile “outbound” students make similar visits abroad). Each student lives with three different families during the school year so that there is a real taste of what American life is like. The visit is watched over by host Rotary clubs, for these students LaGrange Sunrise, Monticello, Port Jervis, Red Hook, Greenville, and Fishkill.

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.
