Wappingers Falls Rotarians Sue Bennett and Steve Crew visit RadioRotary to tell about two great fundraisers and how their club uses the funds to support community and international projects. One of the fundraisers, suggested to Rotary by Dutchess County Tourism, is “A Cup of the Valley,” a coffee-and-tea festival recognizing such local suppliers as Greenwood Lake Roasters Craft Coffee and Harney & Sons for teas. This event is so big that it has two Rotary sponsors, with the Poughkeepsie South Rotary joining Wappingers for the occasion. This is a fairly new, but popular event, staged at the CIA (Culinary Institute of America). The long-term fundraiser for the Wappingers Club is its annual golf tournament at The Powelton Club in Newburgh. The Roy C. Ketcham High School Interact Club, which Wappingers Falls Rotary sponsors, is also a big part of both projects. With the money raised, the Club offers scholarships, five annual Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), help with local food panties and Meals on Wheels, other local projects, and such international programs as ShelterBox and polio eradication.
