PDG Christine about the fun and fellowship of Rotary (Aired on June 23rd & 24th, 2018)

District Governor 2018-19 Christine Giangrasso (Aired on June 23 and 24, 2018)

A long-standing tradition of RadioRotary is the interview with each incoming District Governor (DG) of District 7210, the person who will lead the 55 clubs in 8 counties that make up the District. From July 1, 2018, to June 30, 2018, that person will be Christine (“Chrissy G.”) Giangrasso of the Highland Rotary Club. DG Giangrasso brings to the District an attitude of “We Can Do It,” inspired by World War II’s Rosy the Riveter, Sylvia Whitlock (first woman Rotarian in 1987), and the women of Rotary—but not leaving out the men of Rotary. Among her goals for the 2018-19 Rotary Year are revving up the fight against opioid addiction and engaging with the 46 Interact clubs of the District. As a member of Highland Rotary as well as DG, she will be involved in that club’s annual fundraiser, the August Ribfest at Ulster  Fairgrounds, which is not only a fundraiser for Rotary but also for every charitable organization that participates.

Sitting: District Governor Christine Giangrasso; Standing: Jonah Triebwasser and Sarah O’Connell

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 Efforts to Deal with Climate Change (Aired on November 25 and 26, 2014) RadioRotary producer Kathy Kruger interviews Rotarian Bryan Bunch (Millbrook), a member of the Rotary District 7210 Environmental Action Committee, which has as its main mission this year promoting tree-planting, a major goal of 2017-18 Rotary International.

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.
