4H Fair With Marjorie L. Nicholas Keith (Aired on July 22, 2017 and July 23, 2017)

Putnam Country 4-H Program (Aired on July 22 and 23, 2017)

Marjorie Nichols Keith , Executive Director of the Putnam Country Cornell Cooperative Extension, brings 4-H Club member Grace Fisher (11 years old) to
RadioRotary to help tell about 4-H programs and the annual Putnam County 4-H Fair in Veteran Memorial Park in Carmel. The 200-some 4-H members in the County, ages 5 through 19, are joined by as many as 300 other volunteers to produce the Fair. Although we often think of 4-H in terms of young people raising livestock, Grace explains that the club helps teach leadership and life skills —“it’s not all about cows and cooking.” The Fair is a big family event with food booths, music, a plant sale, horse and dog shows, an auction, and activities such as Touch a Truck and a fishing contest. Putnam Country Rotary Clubs often sponsor tents at the Fair.

Sparrows Nest (Aired On April 22nd and April 23rd, 2017)

Sparrow’s Nest is Growing Fast (Aired on April 22 and 23, 2017)
Krista Jones returns to RadioRotary with exciting news about developments at Sparrow’s Nest, the charity that provides food to the families of persons who have cancer. Ms. Jones started the charity in 2009 when a good friend was dying of colon cancer, providing meals that Ms. Jones left at the doorstep; soon Ms. Jones learned of four other friends with cancer and began to cook for them as well. Seeing the need, she then formed Sparrow’s Nest with many volunteers helping in the mission. Today Sparrow’s Nest has moved from Ms. Jones’ kitchen to a professional kitchen and office in commercial space, feeding about 500 families—not just moms–in Dutchess and nearby counties. Drivers bring healthy food from the central kitchen in special coolers. Plans are underway to expand even farther, doubling the area covered and the number of families fed.
