On June 21, representatives from 21 community organizations attended a meeting of the Rotary Club of Carmel at George’s Restaurant.  Each group was given a check to support their work in the greater Carmel area.

 

The total of $12,500 that was distributed was a result of the proceeds of the Rotary Community Basketball Shootout.  Under the direction of Al Lotrecchiano and Chairman Sal Gambino, the Shootout Fundraiser has helped community and school organizations raise more than $300,000 in the past ten years.

 

Recipients of the donations this year included Arts on the Lake, Carmel/Brewster Garden Club, Camp Herrlich, Clearpool, Cornell Cooperative Extension, Kent Cadets, Kent Historical Society, Kent Library, My Brother Vinny, COVE Care, NAMI, Putnam Hospital Foundation, Putnam Humane Society, Reed Library, Putnam Youth Bureau, Putnam Treatment Court, Heart in Haiti School and four local food banks (CAP, St. John’s, St. Andrew’s and Gilead Presbyterian).

 

Carmel Rotary would like to thank all of the Basketball Shootout sponsors and participants who made this event possible.

The Carmel Rotary Club announced a $60,000 fundraising goal for the 11th Annual Community Basketball Shootout. This popular annual event organized by the Carmel Rotary Club and Carmel High School Interact Club offers non-profit organizations in Putnam County the opportunity to raise funds to support their organizations. This year’s Community Basketball Shootout will be held on Saturday, March 3rd, 9am – 12 noon at the Carmel High School Gym, 14 Fair Street in Carmel.

The Carmel Rotary Club also announced Bob and Wendy Gentile as the 2018 Rotary Community Basketball Shootout Honorees. The Gentiles have supported and taken part in the success of this event since it began, in 2008. They’ve continually been among the top fundraisers at the Basketball Shootout. Bob and Wendy Gentile have a history of developing programs and working with the children and families of our community, county, state and even internationally. Bob has been the driving force at Camp Herrlich for the past 27 years, leading the organization as its Executive Director. Wendy also has an extensive history with Camp Herrlich and the Carmel School District. The Gentiles have moved the Camp Herrlich from a part- time summer camp to a year-round educational center now caring for 400 campers and 100 staff each day in the summer. Camp Herrlich’s programs have grown into year round, successful partnerships with neighboring school districts, local organizations and NYC schools and organizations. Bob and Wendy exemplify the Rotary motto, Service Above Self, their hands and heart are never far from their work.

An incredible woman by the name of Paula Miritello started an organization by the name of My Brother Vinnie, yes, you heard it right. She collects donations and, in her spare time, helps move our Vets into apartments with dignity and furniture and love. Here is today's work crew. So typical that Paula is not even in the photo.

PDG Drew Kessler’s last action as DG was to electrify the Top Hat Dinner crowd with an announcement: The 64 Rotary clubs in our Rotary District 7210 -- the NYS counties of Dutchess, Greene, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan & Ulster -- altogether gave over ONE MILLION DOLLARS to their communities. That’s big news! 

We should shout this from the rooftops, from the front pages of area newspapers and through bullhorns at community meetings, “$1,000,00.00!”

This doesn’t include Foundation giving, donations to communities outside our District, international projects or anything else. This is simply what we gave locally. Gifts came in the form of checks for new winter coats for kids (Operation Warm) food pantries, scholarships, local organizations and activities, Interact club, RYLA, dictionaries and library books -- just to name the basics! The million dollars benefited people in our own back yards.

The needs are great. So is our commitment. Drew's announcement came with a "Million Dollar Award" from Drew for all 1700 Rotarians in the District, “Presented to District 7210 with sincere appreciation for your outstanding dedication of service to the Hudson Valley.”

Carmel NY

On December 14, 2013, the Rotary Club of Carmel NY will enter into it's sixth year of collecting and distributing food donations to the areas four major food pantries. The donations, which are collected at the Shop Rite Supermarket in Carmel three times peer week, are delivered by Carmel Rotarians to St. John the Evangelist food pantry in Mahopac, Gilead Presbyterian Church food pantry in Carmel, The Brewster Community Food Pantry and Putnam CAP both in Brewster. During the past five years the total value of donated food is estimated at approximately $250,000.

Twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall the Carmel Rotary holds its “Fill the Truck” weekend where 150 to 200 boxes with a total value of approximately $5,000 of additional donations are collected and distributed.

“This all started as a Holiday project on December 14, 2008”, said Carmel Rotarian and Food Drive Chairman George Knoechel. “What we found out was that the need in our community is so great, we must continue to support our food pantries until they tell us they don't need us any more,” said Knoechel. "The public has been very supportive and generous, we usually find the collection boxes at Shop Rite overflowing with donations,” said Sal Gambino a Carmel Rotarian who helps deliver food to the pantries on a regular basis. Currently over 950 Putnam County families are served by our community food pantries and are helped by the efforts of the Carmel Rotary.

What a great experience serving the soup kitchen and meeting some of the people.  We all should be thankful for what we have.  It was a rewarding experience. The people who received the dinners thanks our group so much and said it was one of the best meals they have had.  There also were some more people from our club that helped but are not in the picture.  Thanks to all who helped.

We had an interesting meeting with a group of exchange students from Italy. It was neat hearing each student  saying their name the years they learned English, what they enjoyed doing and their plans for the future. The crowd was big that we had to use the gym at Drew Methodist Church to fit everyone in.  We used George's for the catering.

This weekend, my brother- and sister-in-law came to visit with their 3 adult children. We have not really had time in the past to connect for more than an evening out or for a family party. Unlike our previous times together, we spent four days having meaningful conversations, laughing, and sharing outdoor and indoor fun. I came to know and to appreciate our family in a deeper way, and after they left, instead of feeling depleted and stressed, I felt energized, loved, and connected with them in a new way.

Family can be a wonderful social support and connection if the relationships are positive and healthy. However, some of us lack healthy family interaction and will develop these ties with other social groups. Others have a combination of family, social groups and individual relationships that are supportive and provide a sense of interconnection. The need for social connection has deep cultural roots, as we consider that early humans bonded together in groups or tribes for survival.

In contrast to basic survival, several studies over the past 40 years that have suggested that social relationships may greatly enhance health and wellness by helping us to feel more positive and less depressed, and by contributing to our sense of belonging and security. A lack of social contact is a risk for cardiovascular disease and earlier death. In fact social isolation is a major risk factor for depression, and some studies have highlighted brain changes in miceas a result of social deprivation.

Now, in describing social isolation, I am not talking about people who prefer alone time to going to parties. Rather, it seems that most of us need a couple of people we can talk to about personal issues and the things that are important to us, along with sharing life experiences together.   In addition, when we connect with others by helping them or doing acts of kindness and compassion, serotonin, one of our “happy chemical messengers”, actually rises, and we feel better.

What about you? How do you connect with other people? Do you have people you can confide in? Do you feel supported and satisfied by your relationships? Do you contribute to relationships and foster closeness? Do you limit relationships that are draining, conflicted or downright harmful?

What are some ways to foster healthy connections?

Here are a few examples, and I invite you to brainstorm your own:

  • Join a club or social group with a common interest by searching local newspapers or meetup.com
  • Engage in an online game that will encourage you to connect with others for fun and a common goal.
  • Volunteer for projects that are meaningful to you and bring you in contact with other people.
  • Send an email, txt, or phone someone every day or two and thank or encourage them.
  • Listen with your “whole self” in conversations, ie. be present, keep eye contact, don’t worry about what you need to say. Allow the other person to feel that he or she was heard.
  • Ask friends about how you can support them in the friendship and tell them what you need.
  • Remember to appreciate and encourage time for positive family interaction.

 

Keep in mind that our social ties not only foster our own health and wellness, but also help others.  We can make small changes in our social lives that have large impacts. What would it mean to reach out to someone who is feeling lonely or having difficulty driving to be with others? What would it mean for you? What is one small step you could take tomorrow that would promote connection?

Wishing you a week filled with meaningful interaction!

Lisa

CARMEL, N.Y. – Rotary Clubs in Carmel, Brewster, Mahopac and Patterson came together at the Putnam Hospital Center for a dedication ceremony that marked their joint participation in the hospitals “Path to Progress” Brick Program.

The four rotary clubs combined to purchase a special brick plaque configuration, which was installed in the hospital courtyard as a symbol of the club’s “Service Above Self.” The plaque is highlighted by the four clubs’ inception dates and the rotary international logo.

“Over the history of the hospital, the area rotary clubs have been instrumental in fundraising and volunteer projects to help Putnam County’s only acute care hospital remain responsive to the healthcare needs of the community.”

President Connie Fagan was presented with an award for Rotarian of the Year.

Bob Gentile presented the award (as last year's recipient).  Here is what he had to say:

"[Connie] has not only represented the Carmel Rotary Club well, but has been a wonderful example of “Service above Self”.  [She] has been involved in almost every club project and event this year and did it with a great attitude and what I call, a happy heart…..

Her efforts garnered four district awards for our club this year at the district assembly: New Generations award, Zone leadership award, Public image award and the Literacy award.  She instituted/implemented new initiatives such as the career day, reading program at the Kent school, protocols manual and the refacing of our meeting place.  This wonderful person joined Rotary at the invitation of Andy Senno, the same year I joined.  I also understand that she was a bit anxious about membership as she confesses to suffer from a great fear of public speaking and presentations…Well, I think she got over that fear….

Words to describe her would be ….  Respectful, Kind, Caring, Good Listener, Always Smiling, Hard Worker, Good Leader

I am happy and honored to announce that this year’s “Rotarian of the Year”, goes to our very own club President: Connie Fagan."

Connie, we are honored to have had you as our president this past year and wish you all the best!  Congratulations!

The Carmel Rotary Club will once again sponsor its Community Basketball Shootout. Since 2008 this annual Rotary Club event has enabled area service and youth organizations to raise over $27,000 in much-needed funds to support important programs in the community. The Carmel High School Interact Club (the youth contingent of Rotary International) is co-sponsoring this 21st century edition of the event. We handle virtually all the details. This is an excellent opportunity to raise money with minimal work for you. All you need to do to raise funds is solicit pledges and/or flat donations to support your participation in the Shoot-Out. 80% of all funds raised are directed to your charity with the remaining 20% being designated by the Rotary and Interact Clubs for additional charitable giving. So mark your calendars and practice those lay-ups to help a great cause. Participation instructions are below or for additional information and forms call Al Lotrecchiano at 845-225-4835 or contact us at www.carmelrotary.org.

                              FRIDAY OCT. 17TH, 2014

Dear Rotarians;
Last evening, Maryellen and myself had the pleasure of attending the 5th annual Salvation Army Gala held at Colonial Terrace, Cortlandt Manor, N.Y. with our President Kathy and Jim, Al L. and Dimmy, Amy & Joe Covais, Margie & Dave Keith, Tony Mac. and Sal Gambino.
There were many Rotarians from Carmel, Brewster, Mahopac, and Westchester County.
Our own Rotarian Jim Reitz was honored for his dedication to the principles of Rotary, "SERVICE ABOVE SELF." The weather was perfect, the accommodations were delightful and the food & service were very good.
Jim was presented with service awards from the Salvation Army, City of Peekskill, the Albany Legislature and our own former Rotarian, Putnam County Executive, Maryellen Odell.  Peekskill Mayor, Frank Catalina, Esq delivered the above awards to Jim and told the audience of their longstanding legal relationship, Jim's exemplary reputation in the legal community and his tireless dedication to the betterment of our local community including Jim being a member of Mahopac Falls volunteer department.
In the past five years three members of our club have been recognized by the Salvation Army and Jim now becomes a prestigious member of that crew along with Sal Gambino and George Knoechel.  A Carmel Rotarian being honored in 3 out of the 5 times the Salvation Army has presented these awards is quite an achievement. 
Today our brother Rotarian Don Smith received the BRONZE KEY AWARD  from the National Council on Alcoholism and Other Drug Dependencies.  The Bronze Key Award  is a national recognition award granted to an individual that has made an outstanding contribution to the field of substance abuse prevention. Due to previous medical commitments Maryellen and myself were unable to attend the ceremony and we would like to congratulate Don for his achievements.
So, congratulations to our Carmel Rotary Club and our dedicated Rotarians.
....................................................................................Mike McD, Past Pres.

Eat to Savor

canstockphoto7842080

Wellness Bytes #6

How does eating and food affect you and your life?  Do you have rituals around mealtime?  Do you quickly inhale your meals and run on to the next activity or chore?  Do you eat while reading or watching TV?  Are you curled around your favorite snack or dessert, blanking out the unpleasant day you’ve had?  Are meals a special time for you or just something that must be done?  Or do you tend to skip meals? Is there a way to completely savor your food?

I have been avoiding publishing a blog article on nutrition for a good reason.  There is an overabundance of articles, studies and information telling us WHAT to eat.  The studies are often conflicting, bewildering, and based on weak evidence.  The problem? Controlled studies about food and humans are very difficult to conduct – you would have to lock at least 200 people in a facility for several weeks so they have no access to outside foods to really find out useful information.  In addition, how would you account for the differences that might occur from lifestyle habits such as smoking, or genetic predisposition, in analyzing the data?  Without extensive, reliable studies, it is up to us to pick the most sensible advice that we can.  The advice that I give myself is that if my body would probably not recognize what I am eating as food, I would be better off not eating it. 

So why am I writing about eating and food?  As a wellness coach, I see nutrition playing an integral role in our health and well-being.  Now I am not referring to weight gain or loss here, so please read on.  Nutrition (snore) is about nourishment (ahhh): basic love and care for our bodies and selves.  Eating is so much more than consuming calories: it is social, it can be a peak experience, it is escape and comfort, or it can incorporate some mindless habits.

Our eating habits affect our ability to move and exercise, our concentration, our energy level, our relationships, the environment, and so many other areas of our lives.  Much of the time, we eat without really paying attention to how that meal is affecting us.  I make an effort (not always successfully) to pay attention to how my diet affects other parts of my body.  If I am weight training, I need extra protein to avoid muscle fatigue.  If I eat too much sugar, I feel a momentary state of euphoria, then I get sluggish and tired afterward.  What mind-body connections have you noticed with your food?

What would it be like to truly have a mind-body connection with your food?  I invite you to set aside about 5-10 minutes for a simple exercise in experiencing your food.  Select an orange, then pick a quiet place and go through the following steps, trying your best to just notice what happens, without classifying or judging it.

  • Sit with the orange in your hand and study its appearance: What color is it? (thinking “orange” pops into our minds, but try releasing that label and simply notice the color).  How does the color affect you? Observe the texture with your eyes and your fingers.
  • Now, smell the orange with your eyes open and then with your eyes closed.  What is this like? Does it evoke any body feelings? Does your mouth water? Are there any emotions that you feel? Does the fragrance evoke a memory?
  • Next, begin peeling the orange and tune in to the sound this makes, the feeling of the peel on your fingers, the appearance of the fibers and interior of the fruit, the juices as they contact your skin, and the temperature of the fruit.  Again, notice the fragrance.
  • At last, select a wedge, break it in half and lay a piece on your tongue.  DON’T chew it yet.  Feel the weight of the orange wedge, the sensation of the juice on your tongue, and any other aspects of the feelings in your mouth.
  • Now, chew, focusing on what the orange feels like against your teeth and mouth. Swallow that first bite and see if you can feel or imagine its path down the esophagus and into the stomach. How does that feel in your body? How is this eating experience for you? How does focusing on eating this orange in a mindful way, differ from your typical eating habits?

What would it be like to incorporate this technique into a meal?  How would mindfully eating your food affect how much you eat or how much pleasure you derive from eating?  Would this eating style take you from nutrition to nourishment?

Try it and see….

Enjoy your orange!

(CNN) -- A growing body of research is linking five chemicals -- among the most common in the world -- to a host of ailments, including cancer, sexual problems and behavioral issues.

We encounter them every day -- in plastic bottles, storage containers, food wrap, cans, cookware, appliances, carpets, shower curtains, clothes, personal care products, furniture, television sets, electronics, bedding, cushions and mattresses. In short, every room in almost every house in the United States is likely to contain at least one of these chemicals, many of which did not exist a century ago.

They are bisphenol A, or BPA; phthalates; PFOA; formaldehyde; and polybrominated diphenyl ethers, or PDBEs. Tests reveal most of us now carry them in our bodies, but are they putting our health -- and the health of our children -- in jeopardy?

Have you ever wondered how big projects get started? What began as a holiday seasonal activity to help raise funds for our local community, has become a year-long commitment to the collection and delivery of food to local Putnam County food pantries. On December 14, 2008, Rotarian George Knoechel, began a program that has made a difference in the food supply for Putnam County. In ten months, $37,000 worth of food has been collected and delivered to four food pantries: Putnam Community Action Program (CAP), Gilead Presbyterian Church, Brewster Community Food Pantry, and St. John the Evangelist Church.

Hello, everybody!

When I decided to do this Exchange Program, I was completely unsure about the outcome. A lot of people told me it was an excellent decision, life-changing. On the other hand, some said that it would be a hard time, being away from my family, friends, country. Anyway, what I knew for sure is that it would be an adventure.

Some four or so years ago Putnam Hospital Center approached the service organizations in the county seeking pledges for the Hospital building Fund. Until that time the Carmel Rotary Club annually supported the Hospital providing volunteers to run the ticket booth for the rides at the Hospital Fair also running the games concession. After discussion and consideration, the Club's Board of Directors decided that rather than pledge a set sum of money, we would hold an annual fundraiser and dedicate the proceeds to the Hospital.
