Storyhorse Theater is a documentary theater project based in New York's Hudson Valley. Their stories are inspired by transcribed conversations with the people of the Hudson valley, historical documents, and other primary sources, focusing on social, political, environmental and medical issues.

TWO MONTHS IN THE LIFE OF…...
 
Cast your minds back to late August this year.
 
Can you recall headlines that hit our national press? They recounted disturbing stories of hundreds of thousands of citizens in Kerala, Southern India, literally being washed out of their homes as a result of devastating floods?
 
As this was happening, thousands of miles away, this time SW Cameroon, in Africa, innumerable numbers of citizens were being displaced, their villages burned down, violence perpetrated against them by the military under the control of the government. These villagers had no option other than to live in the bush as their physical communities no longer existed. Did you even know this was happening?
 
Then press headlines once more took centre stage.
At the end of September, Typhoon Omphong (Mangkhut) hit the northern region of the Philippines, triggering flash floods, storm surges and wholesale landslides. Over a quarter of a million people were displaced; over 100 lost their lives. Health centres were unable to function and so the situation progressively worsened.
 
And finally, in our two month Aquabox odyssey, came the news that a massive earthquake and tsunami hit Indonesia, centred around the city of Palu.  Almost 900 people lost their lives, many buried in massed graves to prevent the spread of disease. Other stories emerged detailing suffering too harrowing to report here.
 
Here are are some common factors in all these tragedies:
 
The lives of individuals and whole communities can be destroyed in a frighteningly short time. The health of citizens is immediately at risk and access to safe drinking water is of paramount importance.
In each of the above human catastrophes, Aquabox was instrumental in providing meaningful, immediate and sustainable support. It supplied water purification filters and other items of humanitarian aid, all of which was distributed, securely and appropriately by our long-standing partners on the ground. (Rotary International in particular, was well placed for accurate assessment of need.)
The water filters despatched from our Wirksworth depot in the past two months alone, have the capacity to provide drinking water to over 35,000 needy citizens in some of the world’s most devastated areas.
Since the filters can function for several years, this output may continue way beyond the immediate need.
(The output of these filters could mean 1700 litre plastic bottles per minute no longer enter our environment.)
Without clean drinking water, people suffer from the most debilitating diseases and this significantly impacts on their ability to rebuild and regenerate their communities and local economies.
We, at Aquabox, are extremely proud of what we achieve. We are a truly volunteer led charity with no ‘fat cat’ board of directors. Our 70+ volunteers are our engine-room and quite simply without them we could not do what we do.
 
We rely TOTALLY on donations to continue our life-saving work. Can you help?
 
If you feel you are able to support us, details of how to do this can be found on our website www.aquabox.org  Alternatively cheques payable to Aquabox can be sent to Aquabox, PO  Box 5398, Matlock, Derbyshire DE4 4ZP
In particular, we would welcome corporate sponsorship. Please contact us if this is of interest.
 
Find out more about our work on our Facebook page or come along to see us at work at our depot. You can book in a trip through our website. We would welcome your interest.

This week we had our official visit from District Governor Christine Giangrasso. Chrissy inspired us with her description of Rosie the Riveter – as depicted by Norman Rockwell.  She encouraged us to undertake the following:  Create a Rotaract Club at Bard College, Join with other Rotary clubs in activities.  Seek to think “out of the box” about club possibilities.  She noted that October 24th is World Polio Day and challenged every club in our district to donate $100 to the End Polio Campaign – noting that with 55 clubs in the district we could give $5500 to the campaign which would be doubled by the Gates Foundation.

He referred to and read some passages from David Brooks’ book “The Road to Character”. Michael suggested we all need to build and improve our character virtues. As Rotarians we inherently have good character virtues as we live by our 4 Way Test and Service Above Self motto. Thank you Michael for your inspiring words. (photos by Jonah Triebwasser)

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)

This week, three of the five students who attended RYLA spoke of their experiences. Cian Ryan, Raquel Gifford and Jacqueline Kocik all said it was a great experience. They all learned more about their leadership skills and how to use those skills. When they arrived at RYLA they did not know what to expect. The “high energy” level of the RYLA leaders got them excited right away.

One speaker who made a big impression on the students was a young woman who suffered a traumatic brain injury in high school a few years ago.

Our own Rev. Fred Cartier was the speaker this week. He gave an interesting talk about planning for retirement. Not so much from a financial standpoint, but from an emotional standpoint. He said one day you are going to leave your job...what are you going to do the next day?

Fred suggested starting now to think about and plan what you will do when you retire. Making a daily schedule for yourself and then be sure to do at least two things from that schedule. Something that may help you decide what you may want to do in retirement Fred heard at a seminar about retirement. The speaker asked everyone in the audience to write down in one brief sentence “who you are without making reference to your job or your family”.

Fred referenced statistics about how people’s health deteriorates after they retire if they have nothing to do. Many die in a short period of time as well.
So start now thinking about what you will do after you retire. Go to the library and read books; take advantage of education programs that are offered for retirees like those offered at Bard College; expand a hobby; whatever, just make a plan to do something!

Our speaker this week was Robert Shoemaker, CEO of Professional Computer Associates (PCA).  He was accompanied by his firm’s Marketing Director, Theresa Mulkins.  Bob provided us with a crash course in Phishing 101.  In summary, we need to be cautious about all emails because looks can be deceiving.  Bob shared some hints:  1) If the message in the email sounds too good to be true, it probably is.  2) Look at the email address of the sender; if it is not from the business or person supposedly sending you the email do not open. 3) If the email contains a "link" to a webpage, hover your mouse pointer over the link and the actual address will appear, don't click it if it doesn't look correct. 4) If the subject line contains RE: and it is not coming from someone you have been communicating with, don't open the email.  5) Last but not least, when creating passwords make sure they are easy to remember and don't contain any personal information.   For more information on Personal Computer Associates (PCA) visit their website at: https://www.pcasupport.com/

Our guest speaker this week was our very own Rob Latimer who recently vacationed with his family in the small village of Hopkins in Belize.  Rob wanted to attend a local Rotary club meeting only to learn they take the Summer off.  He did however make a connection with Wendy Miller a local resident & Real Estate broker who is looking to start a club in Hopkins.  Wendy’s Father was a Rotarian and this is what inspired her to start a local club.
Rob spent a couple of hours sharing with her all the great work Rotary International does as well as the great work our own local rotary chapter performs here in Red Hook.  He learned the village has no potable water, and the local park was a rotary sponsored project with a club from Canada.  We are discussing  ideas on how we might be able to act as a “mentoring” club with the Hopkins club and perhaps even with help with sponsoring an Aquabox (approx. $300.) to provide a water filtration system to the village. To learn more about Rotary International and how we’re an ambassador for Aquabox visit http://www.aquabox.org/
 
As Rotary is dedicated to permanently ending polio, another unique Rotary connection was made when Rob visited a local market in San Ignacio where he fell in love with a painting. He learned the artist, Oscar Ulin, suffers with polio and can't use his hands so he paints with his mouth. See Oscar’s story at: https://www.facebook.com/LowerDover/videos/1416850208347352/

Rob further reports: " The park built in Hopkins through a combined effort between the Rotary Club of Dangriga and a club from Canada has fallen into disrepair. Also, without any lighting, parents won't allow kids to play there after sunset.
The newly formed satellite club of Hopkins is going to raise the money needed to repair the park and add lighting, bringing the park up to safety standards and creating a village-center focal point for children to play and socialize.
Artist Oscar Ulin has limited use of his hands due to polio, and paints at the San Ignacio market using his mouth to hold the brush. I will have one of his works back from the framer shortly.

Four generations of Latimers (twelve of us from 71 down to 1 year old) made the trip to Hopkins. Meeting the founders of the newly-forming Hopkins Rotary Club was a highlight of the trip. I look forward to exploring the possibilities for partnering with this new satellite club, as soon as they have their approval from RI."

Welcome Rotary District 7210 District Governor Jim Damiani
 
District Governor Jim made his official visit to our club today. He was introduced by Region 3 Assistant Governor Rose Shaffer.
 
District Governor Jim commented on the beauty of our new meeting location, which is a former church with beautiful stained glass windows. He thanked us for being
Rotarians. Rotary helps the vulnerable, voiceless people of the world.
 
When DG Jim first joined Rotary we were embarking on a project called Polio Plus. At that time there were 7,000 new cases of polio each week. There have been 35 new cases so far this year or about 1 per week. Bill Gates addressed Rotarians at the recent International Convention in Atlanta, GA. He said about $1.5 billion is needed to complete eradication of polio in the world. He pledged $400 million from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. DG Jim said that by the end of the convention $1.2 billion had been received in pledges. That leaves $300 million for Rotary to raise. Rotary International President Ian Riseley has asked every Rotary Club to hold a special event to raise money for Polio Plus and to raise
public awareness of Polio.
 
DG Jim told us that RI President Ian Riseley is very concerned about the environment. He is concerned about climate change around the world. RI President Ian has asked every Rotarian to
plant a tree.

Our speaker was Ellen Haggerty of the Pleasant Valley, NY Rotary Club.  Ellen is the chairperson of Rotarians for Hearing, Rotary Action Group.  Rotarians for Hearing encourage Rotarians and others in Rotary who are passionate about helping children and adults with hearing loss in their communities and around the world reach their potential.  Ellen mentioned that there are many devices available to assist the hearing impaired beyond ear hearing aids.  She demonstrated a wireless speaker system that produced very clear sound.  Using an app on your smart phone along with a pair of earbuds Ellen showed members how they could connect with her wireless system.  Ellen was instrumental in getting closed captioning on the large screen during Rotary International Convention sessions.  She also makes sure that the personal listening devices that are used at the convention sessions for translation in to other languages includes English for hearing impaired attendees.  Rotarians for Hearing have submitted a proposal for a Rotary Global Grant to fund an infant hearing loss testing and treatment program in Guatemala.  More information about Rotarians for Hearing can be found on their website www.ifrahl.org. (photo by Rev.

Our guest speakers were two of the three Red Hook High School sophomores (soon to be juniors) who attended the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards conference at the end of June.  Syr, Katelin and Colin attended the conference.  Colin was on vacation this week and unfortunately could not be with us this morning. Syr and Katelin both said it was a great experience attending RYLA.  Both girls mentioned that they did not get placed in the activity group of their choice which made them feel uneasy and out of their comfort zone.  Katelin wanted to be in the engineering group, but was placed in the skit/comedy group.  Syr wanted to be in the graduation planning group, but was placed in the chorus.  They learned the importance of working together on a team or in a group.  They learned members of the team or group have different personalities and play different roles, but every member is important to the team as a whole.  Both felt it was a growth experience for them.

New RI Theme Announced!

Rotary’s founder, Paul Harris, believed that serving humanity is “the most worthwhile thing a person can do,” RI President-elect John F. Germ said, and that being a part of Rotary is a “great opportunity” to make that happen.

Germ unveiled the 2016-17 presidential theme, Rotary Serving Humanity, to incoming district governors on 18 January at the International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA.

“I believe everyone recognizes the opportunity to serve Rotary for what it truly is: not a small opportunity, but a great one; an opportunity of a lifetime to change the world for the better, forever through Rotary’s service to humanity,” said Germ.

Rotary members around the globe are serving humanity by providing clean water to underdeveloped communities, promoting peace in conflict areas, and strengthening communities through basic education and literacy. But none more important than our work to eradicate polio worldwide, he said.

After a historic year in which transmission of the wild poliovirus was stopped in Nigeria and all of Africa, Germ said we are closer than ever to ending polio.

“We are at a crossroads in Rotary,” he added. “We are looking ahead at a year that may one day be known as the greatest year in Rotary’s history: the year that sees the world’s last case of polio.”

Last year’s milestones leave just two countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan, where the virus still circulates. Polio would be only the second human disease ever to be eradicated.

When that moment arrives, it’s “tremendously important” that Rotary is ready for it, said Germ. “We need to be sure that we are recognized for that success, and leverage that success into more partnerships, greater growth, and even more ambitious service in the decades to come.”

Germ, a member of the Rotary Club of Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA, encouraged attendees to return to their clubs and communities and spread the word about Rotary’s role in the fight for a polio-free world.

“People who want to do good will see that Rotary is a place where they can change the world. Every Rotary club needs to be ready to give them that opportunity,” Germ said.

Enhancing Rotary’s image isn’t the only way to boost membership. “We need clubs that are flexible, so our service will be more attractive to younger members, recent retirees, and working people.”

He added: “We need more willing hands, more caring hearts, and more bright minds to move our work forward.”

Our speaker this week was our own Bernard H. "Bud" Weaver, Jr.,

Previously it was mentioned that there is a change to Rotary's Every Rotarian Every Year.  It was thought that every Rotarian would have to become a sustaining member (donate at least $100 per year) for our club to meet this goal.  Bud contacted a representative at the RI Foundation and they were not aware of this new requirement.  Bud is looking into this further and will let us know.

Bud reported that according to Rotary International records donations from our club members is quite low to date.  Bud encouraged our members to begin making your donations to the Foundation now rather than waiting until June 2016.  If you donate $10 to $20 per month you will easily become a sustaining member of the Foundation by the end of this Rotary year.  Some club members are very close to obtaining their first Paul Harris Fellowship and others are close to moving to the next level.  Contact Bud to find out your level on contributions.

Every member is supposed to go to rotary.org/myrotary;to view their profile and learn about Rotary.  You can also make a donation to the Rotary Foundation from your MyRotary account.  It is easy to set up your account.  You need your Rotary member number that can be found on the mailing label of The Rotarian magazine.

Rotary Seeks Nominations for Citizen of the Year
 
The Red Hook Rotary Foundation is seeking nominations from the community for our 2015  Citizen of the Year.  Each year for the past 14 years, Rotary has honored a member of the Red Hook community as “Citizen of the Year”.  
 
Rotary is looking for an individual or group who has given to our community, unselfishly to make Red Hook a better place to live.  The nominee should exemplify Rotary’s motto of “Service above Self”.  Nomination forms can be obtained at the Red Hook Village or Town Halls; download from the Rotary website www.redhookrotaryclub.org or by emailing your request to cdowden@hvc.rr.com.  This is a nomination process, not balloting.  Our decision of who we will honor is based on what the nominee has done for our community, not how many nominations we receive for the same nominee.
 
Completed nomination forms have to be returned or postmarked by September 4, 2015.  They can be returned by mail to: COTY Nomination, Red Hook Rotary Foundation, PO Box 88, Red Hook, NY 12571-0088; emailed to cdowden@hvc.rr.com; or in person to the Village or Town Halls. 
 
The Red Hook Rotary Club meets every Tuesday morning at Bread and Bottle, South Broadway and East Market St., Red Hook.  Our meeting begins at 7:30 am.  Local business and professional people are invited to join us to learn more about Rotary International.

Youth Exchange Weekend in NYC
 
As part of Red Hook Rotary's youth exchange weekend, we had a great time with the Rotary District 7210 Youth Exchange Students from around the world. After arriving at Grand Central Station, we crossed the Brooklyn Bridge, attended a performance of "On the Town" on Broadway and visited Rockefeller Center among other sightseeing. (photos: Jonah Triebwasser)

Our meeting this week: Gale Wolfe hosted Dr. Holly Llobet who spoke about her medical mission to Tibet where she and her colleagues brought much needed medical care to a remote area without electricity or running water. She also regaled us with her adventures in adjusting to life with yaks during her power point presentation of photographs of her trip.
