Rotary Minute

Mark Thabet, our newest member, spoke on Rotary’s recent educational efforts in Borneo. The Dayak people of Borneo live in multi-family longhouses built of wood and prone to fire. Rotary International has begun reaching out to the Dayak people in an effort to educate them in fire prevention. This project has been ongoing for 5 years. During this time Rotary has reached 120 longhouses spread over 5 subdistricts: Sebauh, Tatau, Segan, Belaga, Murum. Some 10,000 longhouse residents have benefited from this community service project. They learned the causes of fire, ways to prevent fires, fire extinguisher maintenance, fire drills, and how to operate a fire extinguisher. To date Rotary has contributed 1208 units of fire extinguishers.



Sgt. @ Arms


Rob was our Sgt-@-Arms for the afternoon. He began in traditional style fining early-goers and late-comers. (The pinless were spared.)

Etna had a Happy Dollar for being present with us at lunch after having missed some meetings. She had a second Happy Dollar for having met up with a friend she hadn’t seen for decades.

Marty had a Happy Dollar that he’d be visiting Sammy and Mabel (who???). He had a Sad Dollar because he wouldn’t be running in this weekend’s marathon. He had a second Sad Dollar that—even if he were in town—he’d STILL be unable to run in this weekend’s marathon! He had a third Sad Dollar for not seeing prospective Rotarian, Lisa, at lunch with us, and wondered aloud at who might’ve scared her away. He hopes she returns as she would make an excellent Rotarian.

John gave a Happy Dollar for the Yankees come-back. He gave a second Happy Dollar for surviving two recent medical procedures.

Ed gave a Happy Dollar for seeing Buzz back in action. He gave a second Happy Dollar for the Yankees entering in to their 28th World Series.

Ken gave a Sad Dollar for a story he heard about an abused child. When asked if he wanted to live with his grandmother, the boy said he’d rather not as she knocked him around as well. The child asked if the judge could promise him he would not be abused in a foster family, the judge, unfortunately, said he could not make that guarantee. Hearing this, the child asked if he could go live with the NY Giants, after all, they never beat anyone! (Joke met with mixed reviews!)

Chris gave a Happy Dollar to see Buzz up and about. He gave a second Happy Dollar for today’s guest speakers.

Tom gave a Sad Dollar for having sat through a NY Giants game: “It was a sad thing to watch”

Pat was Happy to have our guest speakers; Sad that Ken had taken all his money up in Binghamton!

Tracy gave a Happy Dollar that her mother was doing well after a recent medical procedure.





President Jimmy introduced our guest speakers from Goshen’s Cornerstone Theater Alliance. He applauded their efforts and the fine work they do, strongly encouraging Rotarians to check out their productions.
Cornerstone Board member and manager, Drew Smith, discussed how he became involved with Cornerstone about two years ago. He was taken with the passion and dedication of Ken and company, and knew that they could be reaching a much wider audience with the right strategy. Coming from a Wall Street professional background, Drew plays the practical Yang to Ken’s creative Yin. Two years ago, Drew promised Ken that, with the right moves, Cornerstone would take off and be unrecognizable in three years. Two years later, it already is.
Ken Tschan, Cornerstone’s founder and creative force, gave a quick background of his life in the arts, and his philosophy of the importance of the arts in society. Ken spoke of his educational background and seven years off Broadway. He spoke eloquently of his belief that theater is essentially about service, and that he and his players are there to serve the audience, to bring light and delight and depth into the spectators’ lives.
Ken discussed his now wildly popular Shakespeare series’ origins on the Goshen Library’s front lawn. At his first production there were more players than audience members! Last year, a single performance had 237 people in attendance.  Cornerstone Theatre productions were watched by over 5,000 people in Goshen last year.
Lastly, Ken spoke of his desire to get theater into the schools and classrooms. After years of an uphill battle, Ken has finally made some inroads through BOCES.

The Guest Speaker for today was supposed to be me, however, due to technical alterations to the overhead projector, we will have to reschedule my presentation of ClubRunner 101, and other neat applications you can learn.

Rotary Minute


Bob’s Rotary minute was drawn from a recent Rotarian article addressing the history of women in Rotary through the experience of a small club in California. This, from the Duarte Rotary club’s site:

In 1987, women join Rotary. On 4 May, the U.S. Supreme Court rules that Rotary International may not exclude women from membership based on gender. Hundreds of women across the United States are admitted to Rotary. The club that started the legal battle, the Rotary Club of Duarte, California, is reinstated after its termination in 1978 for admitting women.

In 1989, the Council on Legislation votes to eliminate the requirement that club membership be limited to males, permitting clubs worldwide to admit women.

Bob ended with an “Amen to that”! Stating that the women in our club have proven to be great leaders and movers and shakers!


Sgt. @ Arms


Mark was picked to be substitute Sgt-at-Arms for the day. He began by collecting dollars from the late-comers, early leavers, and the pinless.

Chris gave a Happy dollar for a helpful conversation he’d had with a local landscape design artist (our sgt-at-arms, per chance?). He gave a second Happy dollar to have our newest Rotarian, Mark Thabet, at lunch with us today. Welcome to the club, Mark!

Ron gave a Happy (advertising) dollar for all of the excellent work done by Cornerstone. He said their latest production of Tesla’s Letters was excellent. (Editor’s Own Shameless Advertising Note: Many of Cornerstone’s productions are brought to you courtesy of your local library. Tesla’s Letters was underwritten by the Library, as is the annual Shakespeare-In-The-Park!)  Ron stressed that club members should check out their productions. You will not be disappointed!

Dick gave a Happy dollar that Buzz is feeling better after his recent surgery. Get well quick, Buzz!

Ed gave a Happy dollar for Mark, our newest member.

Rolly gave a Happy dollar to be back in town for more than 5 days. Welcome back, Rolly!

Marty gave a Happy dollar to see prospective member, Doug, here with us today. He gave another Happy dollar for having just returned from a trip to the Galapagos Islands!

Vince gave a Happy dollar for having just returned from a 9 day cruise.

Tom gave a Happy dollar that the Goshen Rotary Scholarship Foundation meeting earlier today had been very fruitful.

Jack gave 5 Happy dollars for our impromptu sgt-at-arms.

Honorary Rotarian, Joe, gave a Happy dollar for having just returned from 4 days in Las Vegas without having lost any money.

Jimmy was Happy that there was at least one good looking person in the group and gave a dollar for Hannah.

Prospective member, Doug, gave a Happy dollar for a recent article in the newspaper about the Hambeltonian. He extended his appreciation to the club for our support and assistance.



Having met earlier in the day, Jack gave the Club an assessment of the current financial picture of the Goshen Rotary Scholarship Foundation. Three documents were distributed to each table: the FYE 17 Financial Statement; a bar graph chart demonstrating the Fund’s growth since its inception; and a flyer describing the Foundation and its mission.


Tom was next up at the podium, though happy that the fund has been growing healthily, he expressed concerns about the differential between the fund’s growth and the skyrocketing cost of education. He explained how the scholarships were drawn from the interest and dividends, and not the corpus. He stressed the importance of the Foundation as a high-profile aspect of Goshen Rotary’s image in the community, and urged the general membership and board to recognize that importance, as well. Finally, he asked members to consider the Foundation in their estate planning, that sizable bequests would be necessary to ensure the long-term viability of this crucial service provided by the club.


President Jimmy concluded their presentation with a heart-felt ‘thank you” to the Scholarship Foundation team for all of the hard work they put into this crucial function of the club.

Dear Rotarians,

You have undoubtedly seen the devastation wrought by Hurricane Harvey over the past few days in the Gulf Coast of Texas and Louisiana. The sad statistics continue to grow with each hour, and there is no question that this is an unprecedented natural disaster, among the worst in US history, with levels of damage expected to be near those caused by Hurricane Katrina.

As Rotarians who always place Service Above Self, your club's members are certainly asking "what can we do to help?". You've probably received pleas for support online, in social media, and perhaps even in direct emails, but who can you trust to respond in the way that is most appropriate and fair to all concerned?

"My dream is for every kid to have their own box of crayons"


"I am a fifth grade student in Pennsylvania, and I LOVE art and COLOR of any kind!! When I found out that not all kids have their own box of crayons, I got very upset, and I wanted to do something to change that.  I started collecting all kinds of art supplies to send to kids who don't have their own and began a program called 'Color for Kids'.  Hundreds of amazing people have donated to my program, and I am sharing COLOR with kids all across the globe.  My hope is that one day, all kids will have a way to create with color.   


 Together, we can color up the world!"



In August 2016, Color for Kids became Color for Kids Inc and was approved as an official non-profit organization by the IRS.

LIFE IS BUSY........A Snippet!

Life is busy. Work, family, bills, repeat. What little free time remains is precious, and doled out sparingly. Yet across this country and across the world, people take time out of those busy lives to participate in a service club in their community. Some guide our youth by becoming girl scout or boys scout leaders.  Others volunteer at soup kitchens, homeless shelters, humane societies, or another outlet that allows them to both contribute to their community and interact with others in formal or casual social service organizations.  If you gaze out your window while driving through towns, you may see signs announcing the presence of  some service organizations like Rotary, Lions, or Kiwanis.

Building more than a sandwich!

Our Interact group spent their time building 150 sandwiches for The Midnight Run from The First Presbyterian Church in Goshen. Midnight Run is a volunteer organization dedicated to finding common ground between the housed and the homeless. In over 1,000 relief missions per year, Midnight Run volunteers from churches, synagogues, schools and other civic groups distribute food, clothing, blankets and personal care items to the homeless poor on the streets of New York City. The late-night relief efforts create a forum for trust, sharing, understanding and affection. That human exchange, rather than the exchange of goods, is the essence of the Midnight Run mission.

— Under a cloudless blue sky tinged with fall, dogs romped and played and ran up and down the hill at Goshen's Salesian Park on Route 207.

For seventeen-year-old Kelly Fellenzer, this day was a dream come true. Columbus Day, Oct. 10, marked the grand opening of the Goshen Dog Park, dedicated to the memory of Paul E. Wright — Goshen’s “Music Man.”

Hi! I am forwarding this link to photos from the British district Conference to our members who have been involved with the Friendship Exchange with the Carlton club over these many years because they can get glimpses of their friends if they zip through the string of photos.
For our Board members, I know you are not personally familiar with these folks, so just delete if you are not interested in getting a glimpse of what they do "across" the pond". Their current Governor, Colin Gell, is in the Carlton club and the folks you see with the "Stewards" banners on them are all from Carlton - they are our equivalent of Sergeants at Arms.

Goshen Shares with Central Orange Sunrise Rotary; Museum Village Summer Educational Trip Project
Story by Natasha Tomlins, Central Orange Sunrise Rotary Club
Doris Obremski came to speak about Camp Braeside Project. The Goshen Rotary has been involved with the camp since the 1930’s, even have a cabin named after them. Over the years they have made shutters, painted walls and repaired floors and now their newest endeavor is the Museum Village Summer Educational Trip Project. The Project is spearheaded by Braeside Camp Director Craig Altman and PDG Doris Obremski. Braeside Camp exists in a beautiful and peaceful setting (an oasis in the heart of Middletown NY) The campus is complete with tall trees, rolling hills and a creek that wraps around the perimeter, all creating the perfect backdrop to the endless fun and frivolity that takes place here in the summer. Braeside Camp is a not for profit and is dedicated to providing an authentic, enriching and educational overnight camp experience for kids in the Orange County NY area. While the camp serves many children, it is dedicated especially to those that could not otherwise afford such an experience.
Museum Village Summer Educational Trip Project was developed to raise funding for entry fees and transportation for 4 different trips from 10am-2pm from Braeside Camp the Museum Village over the summer for each of the 4 two week sessions for 6-12 year old children to attend and experience hand-on exhibits while exploring and interpreting 19th century rural life as well as inspiring an appreciation for the evolution of industry and technology in America. Entry fees for 80 children to attend includes entry fee and transportation is of $4,360. Both Museum Village and Mid-City Transit have given discounts to contribute to this cause. If you would like to make a donation please contact Doris Obremski at845-294-9241 or email
