KECR recently recognized the efforts of Steve Gilbert, columnist for the Keene Sentinel newspaper with a Paul Harris Fellow Award. Rudy Fedrizzi presented Gilbert with the award citing his many contributions to the Greater Keene community. Rudy and other members commented on Steve's remarkable ability to capture the essence of a person, program or place with his unique writing style.  Keene Sentinel Executive Editor Paul Miller participated in the recognition ceremony along with Steve's wife and one of his two daughters. 
Please enjoy The KECR Show Episode 3: Polio Eradication Program.
Hosted by Kemal Atkins with guests Allen Mendelson and Dr. Bob Englund discussing Rotary's Polio Eradication efforts.
This show will be airing on Cheshire TV, Facebook and on our permanent page on this website at http://elmcityrotary.org/SitePage/kecr-show-youtube-channel
 

We are very excited to announce that the Keene Elm City Rotary Television Show has been launched. Episode 1 is a 30 minute program, “What is Rotary”. Cheryl Belair, Alan Stroshine and Cindy Rodenhauser Stewart discuss how Rotary was founded, Rotary International programs including Polio Plus and several impactful programs by our Club including the DeMar marathon, Jamaica Wheelchair and Second Grade Sneaker programs.

Imbedded in the video are drone video shots of last year’s DeMar, amazing how clear and well composed the shots are! Shows the race and our beautiful community in an entirely new light. 

We will be producing a 30 minute program each month and each will focus on a specific club project or initiative. The January program will discuss the Club’s Scholarship Program, supported by a six figure endowment. And the February program will be focussed on the Rotary International Polio Plus Program that is very close to complete eradication - only a handful of very isolated cases exist.

A big thank you to the folks at Cheshire TV and members Phil Hueber and Dan White.

The program may be viewed on Cheshire TV or via You Tube

  2016-2017 RI District 7870 Governor Dennis McMann
The Shoe Crew, consisting of 60+ Rotarians and a few non-Rotarian volunteers, is in the process of delivering over 640 pairs of sneakers and socks to 2nd Graders in 27 schools in Cheshire County.  We're delighted to be doing this but the smiles, hugs and thank yous from the children receiving sneakers is amazing! 
 
Follow "ME", a KECR program,  is giving one FREE pair of new, high-quality sneakers as part of a larger overall wellness program.  We hope that new sneakers will inspire the kids to become advocates of movement by Moving Everyday ("ME") in their own way: running, biking, swimming, jumping, etc.  We have partnered with Advocates For Healthy Youth and Healthy Monadnock 2020 to help make this program and the Kids DeMar possible. 
 
The Kids DeMar is open to all 1st-5th grades in the Monadnock Region.  The kids need to complete 25 miles of exercise over the summer and have that exercise signed off by their teacher or physical education instructor at the beginning of their year in order to complete the 1.2 miles of the DeMar which is the last Sunday of September, annually. 
 
As a result of our wellness efforts, which include providing dictionaries to 3rd graders, we have had many community organizations ask to partner with us.  In addition to sneakers and socks, we also gave free passes to the Keene Family YMCA, MoCo Arts and Cheshire Children's Museum to every 2nd grader in Cheshire County, courtesy of those organizations.
 
We love this program and hope we inspire other organizations to get involved.
 
Follow "ME" and Move Everyday!
