Foghorn for 11/29 and 12/6 - It's a Twofer!
StoryThumbnail
   This issue of the Foghorn is a 'twofer' - a 2-in-1 double issue covering the past two meetings because quite frankly I just haven't gotten to it until now; however, it's not for lack of intent!  So, my notion is that there's a lot of everything going on out there on our little piece of sandbar...time to take a deep breath and slow down to enjoy the Holidays. That being said, read on...

Rotary Club of Falmouth Cape Cod Honors Falmouth Police Chief Edward Dunne
 President Allan introduced Chief Edward Dunne and presented him with a Recognition from the Rotary Club of Falmouth to the Falmouth Police Department for its protection of the citizens of Falmouth.  Chief Dunne thanked the Club and said it meant a lot to be recognized.  The Department wants to give back to the community.
 
Chief Dunne has been in the Police Department for 38 years and now is the Chief.  He recommended to us the Citizens’ Police Academy, which will run for ten weeks on Thursdays from 6:30 to 9:30 and begins on 9/17.  There will be ride alongs and you will wear a bulletproof vest.
 
The Department is authorized for 58 Officers and hired 11 last year, which means the department trends young and eager.  All those considered had a connection to Falmouth.  Currently 2 are attending the Police Academy in Randolph.  The Department assigns an officer as liaisons to each neighborhood of which there are 33.  Officers stop at all Falmouth Schools and there will be School liaisons this year. 
 
There was an important discussion about drug use and Narcan in response to a question from the group.  Falmouth has an Opiod Coalition which combats the presence of opiods.  The Department has done a good job of cleaning up pill factories in town and taking out the top dealers.  The merits of Narcan were frankly discussed by Chief Dunne and on average one person a day is brought back from death by drugs by the administration of Narcan which every officer has done.  It is important to recognize that drugs are an addiction not a choice which affects those in all walks of life.  Falmouth is fortunate to have the presence of recovery facilities in town.
 
Sam P spoke of how the Police Department has empathy for all those residents of Falmouth that it serves.  Thanks to Chief Dunne for his sharing the story of the Falmouth PD with us.  We are fortunate to be so well served.

Rotary Students of the Week - Falmouth Academy
 
Congratulations to our 2 Students of the week who attend Falmouth Academy!
 
Bourne resident Kunaal Rajagopal came to Falmouth Academy in the 8th grade and will be a senior in 2015-16.  A member of the National Honor Society, Kunaal has also been elected by the students and faculty to serve as Treasurer of the Student Council in the coming year.  Kunaal has consistently been a Head of School’s List student.  To be named to the Head’s List, a student must earn no C’s and at least three A’s.  Like the second student honored today, Eliza Van Voorhis, Kunaal is an outstanding athlete as well as an excellent student.  He has played 4 years of varsity basketball and was named to the All-League Team in the Cape and Islands League this past year.  He plays AAU basketball and coached this summer at the Falmouth Academy basketball camp.  He hopes to play basketball in college.  Kunaal is also a varsity lacrosse player and has been elected captain of both basketball and lacrosse for next year.  Kunaal is a role model to the younger students at Falmouth Academy, with whom he enjoys spending time.  Next year, he will teach a once-a-week elective, Recreational Games.    
 
Eliza Van Voorhis, who commutes to Falmouth Academy from Mattapoisett, will be a junior.  Two of her older siblings graduated from the school, and her older sister Charlotte will be a senior.  Eliza was elected Secretary of the Student Council, again by vote of the entire community, and she is also a member of the National Honor Society.  Eliza has been named to the Head of School’s list consistently as well.  With two years to go at the school, Eliza has already played 3 years of varsity soccer, 3 years of varsity lacrosse, and 2 years of varsity basketball.  While she excels in all three sports, and has been named all-league in both basketball and soccer, she truly excels in soccer and hopes to play in college.  She was named the MVP of the Cape and Islands League in soccer this year.  In fact, Falmouth Academy athletes won the league MVP award in all three girls’ sports this past year.  Eliza’s talents are not limited to the classroom and the athletic fields.  She has won several awards for her work in photography and ceramics.

Falmouth Rotary Club Will #Shelter4Nepal This Weekend!
 Even though the daily news coverage has slowed, over 500,000 victims of the earthquake in Nepal remain homeless and the monsoon season is just around the corner. As a result, the Falmouth Rotary Club is launching a major effort to raise awareness of the continued housing needs and to raise funds to help provide ShelterBoxes for ten families.
 
The local Rotary Club will have a ShelterBox set up at Peg Noonan Park from 10:00 am on Saturday, June 27, through 5:00 pm on Sunday, June 28. Residents and guests are invited to examine the tent and its contents, and to make a donation. The club raised over $10,000 four years ago with a similar project following the Haitian earthquake.
 
 
ShelterBoxes contain a tent that will sleep 10 people as well as the necessary supplies that families need to return to some form or normal routine and to help restore their dignity. Since its founding in 2000, the non-profit volunteer organization has collaborated with Rotary International to respond to earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, tsunamis, hurricanes, landslides, typhoons and conflict, delivering emergency humanitarian aid to communities in need. 
 


The 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the Syria crisis, and the biggest storm to ever make landfall – Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines; ShelterBox has responded to some of the largest humanitarian crises the modern world has ever known. Alongside this, they have also helped many thousands of people displaced by disasters that are not featured in the media.
 
The display will be manned around the clock during the weekend.
 
For complete information, visit www.shelterboxusa.org, www.falmouthrotary.com, or call Will Barrett (831-262-6989) or Steve Clay (508-563-5800).

Falmouth Rotary Announces 14th Annual Crafts & Antique Fair;
Over 2,500 Expected to Attend
Old-Time Fiddle Contest Featured


The Falmouth Rotary announces that it will hold its 14th annual Crafts Fair, September 13th and 14th, at the Falmouth Marine Park “Band Shell”.  Hours for the fair are 8am- 4pm both Saturday and Sunday.

“The Rotary’s Annual Crafts Fair is a family event and has become a tremendous success,” said Rotary President Rich Edes.  The fair attracts over 2,500 people, over the 2 day events, who shop at over 60 vendor booths.

“With so many booths and a wide variety of products, the fair delivers a great consumer event, with vendors offering antique furnishings, hand-made and estate jewelry, as well as china and glassware.  Each year we sell out our booth allotment, said the Rotary spokesman

The event will feature a judged “Old-Time Fiddle Contest” with over a dozen fiddlers competing.  This year Falmouth Rotary has expanded their entertainment schedule to include a Fishing Derby for Kids, a USA Kung Fu Demo, Frank O’Rourke, a local musician, dance demonstrations by Cape Cod Dance Center and the Falmouth Dance Academy, and a Mother Goose on the Loose session with the popular Ms. Amy!

“We expect that this musical highlight will add additional sparkle to an already lively fair.  Last year’s Fiddle Contest and other entertainment was a tremendous success and was well attended,” said Edes.  

“The Craft Fair, in its 14th year, is now a tradition and is one of the most visible ways Falmouth Rotarians support their community,” said Edes. Proceeds from the Craft Fair help Rotary fund its’ scholarships for Falmouth students, efforts to support clean waters and Rotary’s worldwide effort to eradicate polio.

“Founded in 1927, Falmouth Rotary is very active in our community in both large and small ways,” said Edes.  Besides, through our scholarships the Falmouth Rotary has helped the East Falmouth Elementary School expand its math and sciences book collection, helped expand parking at Spohr Gardens, has donated funds to VIPS(Volunteers in Public Schools), funded the sign at the Gus Canty center and the kiosk at the Town Hall.

“Falmouth Rotary efforts even made the helicopter pad at Falmouth Hospital a reality,” said Edes.


Entry is just $2.00 and offers an affordable day of fun for the entire family, he added.

Inspired By Confuscius: RI President-elect Gary C.K. Huang chose Light Up Rotary as his theme for 2014-15
RI President-elect Gary C.K. Huang chose Light Up Rotary as his theme for 2014-15. Huang was inspired by the teachings of Chinese philosopher Confucius who said: "It is better to light a single candle, than to sit and curse the darkness."

"There are so many problems in the world, so many people who need help. Many people say, 'There's nothing I can do.' So they sit there doing nothing. Meanwhile everything stays dark," Huang told the 537 district governors and their spouses and partners who are attending the 2014 International Assembly in San Diego, California.

"The Rotary way is the Confucius way. The Rotary way is to light a candle. I light one, you light one, 1.2 million Rotarians light one. Together, we light up the world," said Huang, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Taipei in Taiwan.

After announcing his theme at the opening session of the five-day training meeting, Huang urged club members toLight Up Rotary in the coming year by hosting a Rotary Day in their community and including local Rotaract and Interact members in their service projects.

"How you Light Up Rotary is up to you," Huang said. "You know where you are strong, you know what your community needs, and you know how you can help."

Falmouth Rotary Beach Clean Up Day

Every year our club picks up the trash at Menauhant Beach including the beach, lots, dunes and the back side. The amount of trash is appalling and very obviously a big problem for our community. In our Beach Cleanup photo album we have pictures of some of the items that we cleaned up and all these things are repetitive yearly items we have to clean up. It is sad to see that our community property that is owned and enjoyed by the young and old is treated in such a way. The amount of cigarette butts, plastic, paraphernalia, broken glass and other trash will shock you. We invite you to join us in our future projects and future cleanups as we try to do our small part in making the world a better place. As always Service above Self ♥

WE ARE THIS CLOSE TO ENDING POLIO
After 20 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease, but a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions.

Your contribution will help Rotary raise $200 million to match $355 million in challenge grants received from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The resulting $555 million will directly support immunization campaigns in developing countries, where polio continues to infect and paralyze children, robbing them of their futures and compounding the hardships faced by their families.

As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk. The stakes are that high.

"If we all have the fortitude to see this effort through to the end, then we will eradicate polio."

- Bill Gates
