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.

New Year’s Eve Millbrook (Aired on December 17 and 18, 2016)

New Year’s Eve Millbrook (Aired on December 17 and 18, 2016)
Rotarian
Joyce Heaton
(Millbrook Rotary), who has chaired the annual
event New Year’s Eve Millbrook for 13 years, describes the family-
friendly way that the Millbrook community and visitors celebrate the
last day of each year—with music, puppets, circus and magic acts, and
other entertainments. Many local foundations, businesses, and
individuals fund the free event, but it is run almost entirely by
volunteers from Millbrook Rotary. Each year patrons can donate a
small sum to obtain a lighted button that incorporates a design by a
local student. The RadioRotary interview also describes some of the
many other activities of Millbrook Rotary, which range from annual
publication of a business directory for Millbrook and the surrounding
communities through provision of local school children with school
supplies their families might be able to afford to donations of free
dictionaries and other books to local schools. The club also helps fund
local organizations and international projects.

Goshen’s Got Talent (Aired on May 28 & 29, 2016)

Nan Gill-Wilson and David P. Wilson

Nan Gill-Wilson and David P. Wilson

Goshen Rotarians Nan Gill-Wilson and David P. Wilson are professionals in several branches of show business. The have brought their own talents and performing knowledge to the aid of their Rotary Club in a number of ways. Goshen Rotary manages to have at least one major event every month of the year. One of these fundraisers is “Goshen’s Got Talent,” a show based on local amateur performers—although David and Nan have found amateurs with professional chops. While “Goshen’s Got Talent” benefits the community service of Goshen Rotary—which includes dictionaries for elementary school, disaster relief, scouting, and the Braeside-Museum Village project—Nan and David also have developed “Once More Frankly!” which supports The Rotary Foundation. Their involvement in Willy Gilly Productions, the Acting Anyone Academy, and The Academy of Film Television Stage and Performing Arts also manages to entail Rotary connections in various ways.

Taste of Greater Newburgh (Aired on May 14 & 15, 2016)

RadioRotary is visited by Newburgh Rotarians Allie Sacks, Bob McCury, and Debbie Johnson on the occasion of the ninth annual “Taste of Greater Newburgh” festival of food, drink, music, automobiles, and art. Local restaurants and other food and drink suppliers form the foundation of this annual fundraiser, but a local band supplies music and in 2016 the festival featured both an automobile show and works by local artists. The money raised by the event is used by Newburgh Rotary to help fund fifteen community nonprofits, including the Salvation Army, services for senior citizens, and Peace Poles, physical reminders of the important Rotary goal of peace throughout the world.
