Great Events from Goshen Rotary (Aired on May 11 and 12, 2019)

Rotary 7210 Past District Governors Ken and Doris Obremski, both members of
the Rotary Club of Goshen NY (Ken is currently club president) visit RadioRotary
to tell about some of the events the club uses to raise funds and support the
community and also about some of the projects that Goshen Rotary funds. In the
spring, The Taste of Goshen brings the culinary talents of local restaurants to
one event, complete with jazz and a silent auction. Then around Independence
Day, Goshen Rotary joins the Chamber of Commerce and other local businesses
and organization to produce the Great American Weekend. 5K and 10K races
are a feature of the weekend sponsored by Goshen Rotary—the Obremskis are
there are the finish line with refreshments for the runners. The money raised is
used for many scholarships for local high-school students, a Thanksgiving dinner
for the needed, and many other community projects. Goshen Rotary is also
proud of its support for The Rotary Foundation, which funds both international
projects and community good works.

Wappingers Falls Rotary Projects (Aired on April 6 and 7, 2019)

Wappingers Falls Rotarians Sue Bennett and Steve Crew visit RadioRotary to
tell about two great fundraisers and how their club uses the funds to support
community and international projects. One of the fundraisers, suggested to
Rotary by Dutchess County Tourism, is “A Cup of the Valley,” a coffee-and-tea
festival recognizing such local suppliers as Greenwood Lake Roasters Craft
Coffee and Harney & Sons for teas. This event is so big that it has two Rotary
sponsors, with the Poughkeepsie South Rotary joining Wappingers for the
occasion. This is a fairly new, but popular event, staged at the CIA (Culinary
Institute of America). The long-term fundraiser for the Wappingers Club is its
annual golf tournament at The Powelton Club in Newburgh. The Roy C. Ketcham
High School Interact Club, which Wappingers Falls Rotary sponsors, is also a big
part of both projects. With the money raised, the Club offers scholarships, five
annual Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), help with local food panties
and Meals on Wheels, other local projects, and such international programs as
ShelterBox and polio eradication.

Better Living Advice: Ellie Savoy (Aired On January 26, 27,2019)

Millbrook Rotarian Ellie Savoy visits RadioRotary to talk about the ways that her
program for healthful living, outlines in her International best-seller Stop Dieting
and Start Living has changed her life and the lives of her many clients. Once 30
pounds overweight and a yo-yo dieter, Ms. Savoy had reorganized her life by
making health a Priority, by avoiding Pretending, by focusing on the Perception
of what works and actual time available for health, by attacking wellness with a
Plan for meals and appointments with yourself, and by approaching the problem
with Passion. Among her newer endeavors has been Workplace Wellness
programs for corporations that want to improve the health of their employees,
creating a culture of wellness at the job. Some of her most important times are
avoidance of processed food in factor of what is natural and organics; and also
making sure that the biggest beverage in your life is water, consumed
abundantly. Read her book for more tips—or if you are looking for something to
listen to while jogging or walking you dog, listen to the audio version and hear
Ms. Savoy read the book in her charming English accent.

Patterson Blues & BBQ Festival (Aired On September 8 & 9, 2018)

RadioRotary co-hosts Sarah O’Connell-Claitor and Jonah Triebwasser interview
two Patterson Rotarians, Billy Flash and Paul Toscana, about the Patterson
Rotary’s annual Blues and BBQ Festival, a music-and-food tradition in Putnam
County for the past seven years. Unlike most similar events, admission and
parking are both free, which includes enjoying as many as nine different bands
playing blues, rock-and-roll, and jazz (over the two days of the festival). The only
cost is for food and drink purchased directly from the Rotary Club, which smokes
its own ribs and barbecues pulled-pork and even bakes the baguettes for
sandwiches. They even take care to use a locally raised hog for the pork. In
addition to the food, the music by local musicians and stars from the New York
Blues Hall of Fame is a big attraction at the outdoor event.
