Camp Quest Program at Franklin Pierce University: Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary, Public School System, and FPU Collaborate

July 20, 2012

image text

In a great example of what true collaboration can bring, Franklin Pierce University (FPU), the Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary Club, and the Jaffrey-Rindge public school system worked together to create Camp Quest for local middle school students. Sixty-five 6th to 8th grade students from the Jaffrey-Rindge middle school enjoy 12 days of camp spread over a 5-week period on Franklin Pierce University’s campus. The program, which is free of charge to campers, is now in its second year and is run by the Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary Club, chaired by Rotarian Tonya Albee. The club won the Rotary International Award for Best Service Program in the District (out of 61 clubs) for Camp Quest, given at the annual meeting held in Portland, Maine, on June 2, 2012.

Rotary President Jim O’Neill says, “The Camp Quest program gives kids an opportunity to try things they might not have the opportunity to do, and being on a college campus gives some of them aspirations to go to college when they might not have considered it an option before. It opens up their world.” The program provides campers with a morning of academic classes in language arts, math, and computer technology, combatting the academic “summer slump” that some students experience. The campers eat lunch in the FPU dining hall and then choose from an array of afternoon recreational activities, such as archery, kayaking, photography, fly fishing, tree climbing, arts & crafts, and more. The afternoon wraps up with an hour of swimming and other water activities enjoyed together on FPU’s Pearly Pond.

FPU President James Birge says, “The Quest program is a perfect integration of our mission as a University and the mission of Rotary to do community service. I’m really proud of how the people in the town and Rotary and FPU have all worked together to make this happen.” The Jaffrey-Rindge school district supplies bus transportation to and from FPU’s campus for all of the campers, and approximately 40 Rotarians (several of whom are FPU alums) help teach the classes and recreational activities as well as supervise all aspects of the program. FPU staff members pitch in to help with some activities as well, and Dr. Birge helps to teach fly fishing, a lifelong hobby that he enjoys. WMUR filmed a day of Camp Quest which will be aired soon on Chronicle.

I am happy to announce that Cathy Sorenson and Jim Fearnside are posted for membership. A short version of their bio's are pasted below.

Cathy is Barbara Duckett's replacement at HCS Services. Barbara is retiring and will continue her membership in the club. 

We plan to induct them into the club at the new member social on November 15. This event will be a part of the Pizza Night social at Paul Tuller's house which begins at 6 pm.

Jim Fearnside:

After graduating from Cornell and Stanford with degrees in Electrical Engineering, I worked for Hewlett Packard Co, Medical Electronics Division, in various Engineering and Management positions. After 36 years, I retired in 2000, and then spent three years as a consultant to two startup companies. Both of these companies were developing high power ultrasound systems to treat embolic stroke, and to increase the effectiveness of drugs used to treat brain disorders.

After living in Lexington, Mass. for 44 years, my wife and I moved to Peterborough last year to begin a new life chapter. We both are active hikers/walkers, skiers, kayakers, and enjoy snowshoeing. I also design and build furniture, volunteer at Massachusetts Audubon Society, Peterborough Unitarian Church, and mentor junior and senior engineering students at MIT.

Cathy Sorenson:

I have been a nurse in home health care for most of my 26 year career. I was raised in Colorado, but have lived in New England for 22 years. We had been visiting New Hampshire for all of those years and decided to purchase our retirement home in Harrisville 8 years ago.  Little did I know that I would meet this incredible woman named Barbara Duckett and get to work for the best home care agency around! My husband and I moved, full time, from Needham MA to Harrisville about 4 years ago when I began working at Home Healthcare, Hospice and Community Services.   I am currently attending Franklin Pierce University and hope to graduate next Spring with an MBA in Health Administration.  We enjoy cross country skiing in the winter and being out on Chesham Pond in the summer. We make every opportunity to spend time with our three grandchildren  whose ages range from 4 months to three years old. Life is good!

Dear Members and Friends,

Tom Westheimer from the Peterborough Rotary was our speaker last week. His presentation showed how Rotary clubs in this country and in Thailand are working together to get reading glasses to rural people. They use donated lens and fabricate frames from welding wire to produce usable reading glasses. It is amazing how much good can be done with simple materials and hard work by volunteers.

This week our speaker will be Michelle Aldredge from the Gwarlingo Art and Culture website. We will serve our usual great breakfast at 7:30 and start our meeting at 7:40.

We also had our second Friday Night Pizza gathering last week. The weather was cooler than the last gathering but the food was just as good as before. Do mark your calendar for the third Friday of the month.

The board will meet this Wed. at 7:30 A.M. at the Dublin General Store.

See you all in the morning.

Dear members and friends,

On July 30th, we inducted Mary Loftis into our club as a new member. Jamie Trowbridge, a longtime past member of our club, was our speaker. Jamie spoke about the challenges facing print media today and specifically what Yankee Magazine and The Old Farmer's Almanac have done to meet these challenges. He also talked about why his publishing company has branched out and acquired other publications in New Hampshire as a way to expand their readership. It was great to see Jamie.

See you all Tuesday morning.

Dear members and friends,

At our last meeting Jonathan Bagg and Laura Gilbert from Electric Earth Concerts gave an interesting talk about their concert series, which has a year-round schedule. While classical music is the heart of their presentations, folk, jazz and cabaret music is also included. They will be presenting a concert at the Dublin Community Church in January of 2014.

The speaker for this Tuesday morning will be Jamie Trowbridge from Yankee Publishing. Jamie was a longtime member of our club, and we are anxious to welcome him back.

We will also be inducting Mary Loftis into our club, as a new member.

See you all on Tuesday.

Dear members and friends,

Our last meeting on July 16th featured Will Chapman from Monadnock Music. His informative talk covered some history, their mission to provide top quality concerts each summer across our region, the work they do in local schools and some of the highlights of the current season. We will continue our musical theme this week with Jonathon Bagg from Electric Earth Concerts as our speaker.

Last Friday was the first of our monthly Pizza Night gatherings. It was a warm event with the temperature at 90 and the oven at 500! Those attending stayed comfortable on the screen porch and enjoyed some good pizza and conversation. Mark your calendar for the next Pizza Night on August 16th, the 3rd Friday.

This week Tom Warren will have the invocation and a Rotary minute; Margaret Baker will have the hat.

See you Tuesday.

Paul

The first meeting of the new Rotary year was an assembly to work on club duties. Members signed up to help find speakers and serve on various committees. Anyone who could not attend should be in touch with me to sign up for a job. I have sent out the calendar and the job signup to members via email. If you did not receive it please be in touch.We reviewed our meeting format and decided to keep everything we currently do and try to add a Rotary Minute. This would a one minute sharing of some interesting facts about Rotary. I am hoping the person who is assigned the invocation can do the Rotary minute as well. www.rotary.org is a great source for information about Rotary as is the monthly magazine. We also talked about about practicing saying the Four-Way Test: Of the things we think, say or do- Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned? We will add this to our meeting from time to time.We were reminded that the Hat talk should not be more than 3 minutes long. I will be doing my best to enforce this time limit.

Mary Loftis was proposed as a new member.

Mary and I will be hosting a monthly Friday night pizza  social event at 6:00 P.M. at our home at 87 Pierce Road in Dublin. Bring a guests, your favorite topping and something to drink. We will have dough, sauce, cheese and a hot oven ready. This event will happen each month on the third Friday. If you know you are coming, please send us an email with how many in your group.

I shared my goals for this year: To start our happy dollar time at 7:40 A.M. to give us a little more time to get through our meeting agenda.

To encourage everyone to invite guests to our meetings and try to increase our membership to 32.

To make sure everyone is comfortable getting into clubrunner and has their photo and basic profile uploaded to the site.

To practice saying the Four-Way Test so we can use it in our daily lives.

Thanks to everyone for being ready to make this a great year.

Paul

Invocation- Barbara Summers     Hat- Sturdy Thomas
