Rhinebeck Rotarian and District 7210 Governor-Elect for 2016-17 Lou Turpin describes two of the several activities that help fulfill the Rotary Foundation motto of “Doing Good in the World.” In addition to his work for District 7210, Turpin has been instrumental in furthering the work of ShelterBox, perhaps the leading disaster-relief organization in the world.

Newburgh Rotarian Doug Sturomski is the unofficial Peace Ambassador for Rotary District 7210, which encompasses the eight counties in the Mid-Hudson Region.

The Peace Poles that Mr. Sturomski builds are 8-feet high, resembling the Washington Monument, and have the message “May Peace prevail upon the Earth” in 80 languages. Another project is the Peace Bell, related to the Peace Bell permanently placed in Hiroshima, Japan. Rotary, which has Peace as one of its six areas of service, has over 500 different ways to symbolize Peace, and among the examples are over 200,000 Peace Poles worldwide.
