District 7210 News & Updates
Doing GOOD to Prevent Substance Addiction in our Hudson Valley Communities
As Rotarians, it is our nature to be mindful of the needs of others, so I am certain that you are all well aware that substance abuse disorder and addiction is plaguing each of our communities here in the Hudson Valley. One of Rotary’s six Areas of Focus is Disease Prevention, and substance addiction is a preventable and treatable disease. For that reason, we’ve declared March 2017 “Substance Abuse Awareness Month” in Rotary District 7210. There are many ways that you and your Club can help, including by “starting a conversation” in your community that reduces the stigma surrounding abuse and addiction, and making others aware that addiction can unfortunately happen to any family at any time. Several of our District’s Clubs have collaborated to develop a template for you to use in raising addiction prevention awareness in your Club and community, and the District has recently approved pursuing a very substantial Global Grant from the Rotary Foundation to bring those extensive resources to work on this disease here in our Hudson Valley.

“Let’s Start a Conversation”
Substance Abuse Disorder and Addiction is plaguing our communities. One area of focus for Rotary is Disease Prevention & Treatment. There continues to be a stigma surrounding abuse and addiction and many people believe that “It can’t happen to me.”
Addiction can happen to anyone, any family, at any time.
The Presidents of Region 3 have teamed up to develop a template for you with the goal of raising addiction and recovery awareness in your club and in your community. I encourage you to join me and participate in the District 7210 Substance Abuse Awareness Month in March.
The District Nominating Committee met on Saturday, 1/28/17, and have nominated Cindie Kish of the Millbrook Rotary Club for District Governor in 2019-20.
Cindie Kish is a past president (2012-13) and current member of the Millbrook Rotary Club, where she has chaired several committees since joining in 2003, including the Projects Committee that determines which community projects will have our Club’s financial support. She instituted and has chaired a project to give all 8th-grade students in the Millbrook area upon graduating a book of their choosing. Her family has hosted Youth Exchange students on three occasions. She has served as Assistant Governor for Region 3 in our District for the past two years and is the current chair for the District Conference. Next year she will be the District Program Director for Youth. Cindie has worked for J McLaughlin for ten years and is co-founder of Hunt & Harvest and a past president of the Millbrook Business Association. She is married and has three children.
Dear Club Presidents:
I am writing to you to remind you that you should be recruiting applicants for the ROTARY WORLD PEACE FELLOWSHIP. Please mention to your membership that this opportunity exists. Ask them to share this concept with their contacts in the community. I am sure that we can find good qualified candidates if all Rotarians spread the word about PEACE FELLOWSHIPS.
