Humanitarian Projects at Rotary Convention (Aired on August 26 & 27,
2017)
RadioRotary interviewers took advantage of the International Rotary Convention in Atlanta, Georgia, to interview some of the many humanitarian leaders who also attended the convention. In this broadcast, you can learn about how Destiny Rescue fights human trafficking and sex exploitation of children and youth all over the world; about the LifePump, which uses the Archimedean Screw to lift water from wells too deep for other pumps (and only needs human power, not
electricity or petroleum-based fuels); about the Rotary Dictionary Project, which supplies individual elementary and secondary school students with one of 8 different dictionaries in English or 22 in other languages; about the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which is based in Atlanta; and about the goals of Rotary International President for 2016-17 John Germ and the projects
that he sponsored during his year as president.

Fitfeet Adventures (Aired on August 19, and 20, 2017)

Adventures and Running with FitFeet (Aired on August 19 and 20, 2017)
RadioRotary interviews Kyle Irwin, who went from the Peace Corps and a career in microfinance to found FitFeet Adventures, a unique Rhinebeck-based corporation that focuses on the environment, philanthropy, and running and hiking for everyone from individuals to groups. Locally FitFeet runs 5K races, 10K races, and full and half marathons to support various local and national charities, including a 2017 walk-or-run at Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park. The “adventures” part comes with specially designed tours of Peru, Chile, and Argentina, some incorporating major races in Patagonia. The Explore Peru Teen Adventure combines language immersion, volunteer work for charities, visits to cultural sites, and a multi-day trek through the Andes Mountains to Machu Picchu. By partnering with nonprofits such as Awamaki, which helps women and rural families in a Peruvian Village lift themselves out of poverty, and the Rainbow Children Foundation, FitFeet Adventures is far more than just a specialized travel agency.

Youth Exchange Students from Abroad (Aired on August 5 and 6, 2017)

RadioRotary’s co-hosts Jonah Triebwasser and Sarah O’Connell call Youth Exchange Rotary’s “crown jewel.” District 7210 Youth Exchange Coordinator Nan Greenwood (District 7210 E-Club) joins the co-hosts as Youth Exchange students from Slovakia, France, Brazil, Japan, Taiwan, and Italy discuss their
experiences as part of the Rotary Youth Exchange program, where “inbound” students from around the world spend nine months attending school in the United States (meanwhile “outbound” students make similar visits abroad). Each student lives with three different families during the school year so that there is a real taste of what American life is like. The visit is watched over by host Rotary clubs, for these students LaGrange Sunrise, Monticello, Port Jervis, Red Hook, Greenville, and Fishkill.

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.
