Red Hook Rotary was out in force at the unveiling of a bust of Eleanor Roosevelt at the new pocket park on Woods Road in Tivoli near St. Paul's church. The event was part of a weekend celebration of Mrs. Roosevelt's 135th birthday and the 70th anniversary of the Declaration of Universal Human Rights that she was a major force behind.

Our first guest this week, thanks to speaker host Susan Simon, was Doug Strawinski of Historic Red Hook who led off the meeting with a description of the wonderful changes that have taken place between the Elmendorf Inn and the “new” Cherry Street property. A shed to the CVS side of the property has been removed. Parking has been shifted to the east side of the property and a wonderful new green is installed to the east side of the Inn. Hardscrabble initiated the use of this green with apple bobbing, games and lots of apple pies. The board asked Doug to look into the purchase of small, portable stage that can be broken down and used inside and out for various activities. A suitable stage has been identified: composed of three 4’ by 8’ sections, it expands to 16 by 8 and is constructed of steel with a poly surface that can sustain getting wet. It clips together for stability and comes with a 10-year warranty. Historic Red Hook hopes that Rotary will consider funding a portion of the $1,866 cost as a gift to the community.
We then greeted our additional guests, Chris and Claudine Klose and Susan Goodman Goldstein and Manny Carel. Claudine spoke about how the new “green” at Elmendorf would be used and how the adjacent Cherry St property is being developed as a “story studio”. 120 fourth graders have been through it this fall and had their lunch on the green! Historic Red Hook’s neighbor, KZE is also excited about the new outdoor space. On a question from a Rotarian, Claudine updated us on the progress of the HRH capital campaign. In consequence of a generous offer from the prior owner of the Cherry Street property, HRH now owns the property and has a much reduced mortgage which they anticipate that the capital campaign will enable them to extinguish. So far in the three year capital campaign $100,000 of the needed $160,000 has been pledged.
Susan and Manny were visiting from California where Susan is a Rotarian. She was a member of our club for several years.

Our most recent guest speaker was Emily Majer, Deputy Mayor of Tivoli and Red Hook Town Historian extraordinaire. Emily told the story of how little Tivoli was selected as the home of one of the five bronze castings of Eleanor Roosevelt, made to memorialize the 70th anniversary of the UN Declaration of Human Rights. It is a great story and Tivoli will celebrate the event with an opening reception at Village Hall from 6-8 pm on Friday, October 11, 2019 (the 135th anniversary of Eleanor’s birth), featuring a talk by Jeffrey Urbin, Director for Education at the FDR Presidential Library.

Photos taken by Rotarian Rev. Fred Cartier. Pictured here are Josh Bardfield of the Red Hook Library (left, Tim Lynch seated) and Barry Ramage, President RH (center) and Bruce Martin, representing the Red Hook Central School District (far right).

May 7, 2019 was a regular club meeting at Cancun’s in Red Hook from 7:30 to 8:30 am. Fifteen members, 83% of our membership attended. With the school budget and related matters coming up for approval by voters registered in Red Hook, on May 21, 2019, our speakers were Josh Bardfield of the Red Hook Library Board and Bruce Martin, representing the Red Hook Central School District.

Josh explained that budgetary increases for both the Red Hook Library and the Tivoli Libraries would be on the ballot at the May 21 election. The Red Hook Library is requesting a 3.25% increase in their budget line. He noted that Library usage, programming, and wireless usage are up this year. The Library is housed in an historic building that requires constant maintenance and restoration. Finally, the state has increased the minimum wage by 38%, which impacts the Library’s operating budget. The Library has secured more than $53,000 in grants, this year but still needs the increase in tax revenue to maintain its current level of service. He urged the club members to vote in favor of the Library request on May 21.

Bruce Martin presented an outline of changes in the Central School district’s budget. While the current budget is enjoying a brief reduction in its debt levels, revenues also drop by nearly the same amount. The balance of the budgetary year will experience a 2.61% increase, but remain under the tax cap. He noted that the incoming kindergarten class will be a full class size smaller and that those savings will go to resources aimed at meeting increased emotional/social needs. No new programs will be introduced.

Voters can still register at the Mill Road School, during school hours. The election will take place from noon to 9pm also at the Mill Road School. Several initiatives will seek voter approval, including the annual increase in expenditure for buses, two new school board candidates (uncontested), election of this year’s student representative to the Board and an opportunity to place solar panels on the school roof. The later are only cost-effective if combined with State Aid – which should be forthcoming. Bruce also updated the club on the construction of the auditorium. The project will be tight to its budget despite cost-effective, value-engineered plans. State Assemblyman, Kevin Cahill, is seeking to provide $500,000 in state grants to the project and the Red Hook Education Foundation may offer and additional $100,000. This project will be the subject of a special vote on June 18. All additional expenses are tax-cap compliant.

Absentee ballots are available in the District Clerk’s office.

Our guest speakers this week were Sadie Bloch and Anabel DiMartino – co-presidents of Interact, and Miranda beer, also an officer of the club. The students spoke about their efforts to raise funds for Shelter Boxes. This year they have baked pies and sold them for Thanksgiving, made cookies and candy forValentine’s Day, solicited donations for a raffle from local businesses (over $300!), andserved dinner and waited tables at the Rotary Citizen of the Year dinner. They then spoke of the popularity of the club at school, noting that their events were well attended and that many clubs suffered from conflicts with sports. They brainstormed ways to boost membership and came up with the idea of painting the tables outside the school. They also solicit at new recruits at freshman orientation, by word of mouth,by tapping friends of friends and wear identifying T-shirts. Each speaker then spoke of their post-graduation plans. Two of the students plan to study film and Connecticut College and Wesleyan University respectively, the third student is still finalizing her plans. Barry presented the Interact Club with a Rotary Service Certificate, memorializing 7-years of successful fundraising for Shelter Boxes.

Our guest speajker this week was Juliet Harrison who gave us a history of the artist gallery and other exhibits that she has founded and then set free in Red Hook.  Her first endeavor was in Tivoli.  There she set up the Tivoli Artist Coop, with the generosity of Martin Clarke the owner of the building who offered a low rent to help the enterprise get started.  She then spent some time working with the Red Hook Chamber of Commerce – headed at the time by Ed Pruit – promoting writers, theater and Dance.  A little later, she worked with a group of artists to create a can opener at the FireHouse in Red Hook.  CAN is an anagram for Cooperative Artists Network.  These efforts included activities with the schools and identified some special world renowned artists in the community including, Brice Marden, Travis Louis, Lisa Donnelly and author Carol Goodman.  More recently, seeing the large number of unrented buildings in Red Hook’s center (following the Real Estate downturn nationwide) the Red Hook Can group shifted strategies by putting Pop Up Galleries in the unrented spaces, drawing attention to the spaces and in many instances resulting in permanent businesses taking over the space.  She is a real friend to Red Hook.

Our guest speaker this week, Marc Molinaro, was introduced as “soccer coach”, youngest mayor in America, gubernatorial candidate, assemblyman and now Dutchess County Executive.  Marc reviewed his seven years in office, noting some of his proudest achievements.  He noted that the county’s fiscal position is much improved its bond rating is the highest in the state,  The county’s improved economic status has been led by strong growth in tourism. The county has undertaken new initiatives in natural resource protection, protecting over 3000 acres of farmland.  Bridges are being refurbished through.out the county, and mental health services have been substantially increased and improved. 

 

Following his comments, the County Executive took questions, covering such topics as changes in the cash bail system and the need for bipartisan cooperation in local government.  Commenting on his experience in running for governor he noted that the biggest difference between issues down-state and up-state is that downstaters were preoccupied with transit systems and corruption, while upstaters were focused on property taxes and corruption.

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.
