Taste of Greater Newburgh (Aired On September 22 & 23, 2018)

Newburgh Rotarians Doug Sturomski and Andrew Ciccone visit RadioRotary to
describe the club’s annual fundraiser, The Taste of Greater Newburgh, which
takes place under a tent on the campus of Mount Saint Mary College, making it a
rain-or-shine event. Over two-dozen food or drink vendors provide an all-you-
can-eat-or-drink experience for a modest per-person fee. The money raised
each year supports the numerous community activities of Newburgh Rotary,
ranging from Meals on Wheels and school supplies for needy children to the
Greater Newburgh Symphony Orchestra. Doug Sturomski is also active in the
Peace Pole Project, helping install poles with the message “May peace prevail on
Earth” in eight languages around the eight counties of Rotary District 7210.
Andrew Ciccone in addition to Rotary duties is on the Board of the Clove Creek
Dinner Theater in Fishkill, a frequent venue for charitable fundraisers.

Doug Sturmonski on Peace and Polio Walks (Aired on May 12 and May 13, 2018)

Our Rotary District’s Peace Ambassador (Aired on May 12 and 13, 2018)
Greater Newburgh Rotarian Doug Sturomski, the unofficial Peace Ambassador for Rotary District 7210, returns to RadioRotary to report on two projects related to his peace mission. In this interview, he announces that he recently has dedicated or planted 10 Peace Poles at local schools. The Peace Poles for Rotary District 7210 are 8-feet high, resemble the Washington Monument, and have the message “May Peace prevail upon the Earth” in 8 languages. Another District peace project that he describes is the “Walk for Peace and Polio” at the Walkway over the Hudson, which not only promoted peace but also raised money to support the eradication of polio, one of the main goals of The Rotary
Foundation in recent years.

Rotary International Convention from Atlanta Georgia (Aired on October 21, 2017 and October 22, 2017)

Atlanta 2017 Rotary Convention, part 4 (Aired on October 21 & 22, 2017)

Some 35,000 Rotarians from around the world came to the Atlanta Rotary Convention, but somehow the RadioRotary team of Jonah Triebwasser, Sarah O’Connell, and Kathy and Dave Kruger keep running into Rotarians from back home, including District 7210 Governor Jim Damiani and a Past President of
Jonah’s Red Hook Club, Sue Simon. The RadioRotary team also learned of fascinating projects from other American Rotarians, including the prospect of even more collaboration between Rotary International and the U.S. Peace Corps and a vision screening projct for elementary schools undertaken by the Cincinnati
Rotary. The Chicago Far North Rotary is working to bring specialized water carriers, called hippos, from South Africa to places in Haiti that lack access to running water.
