Rotary Mentors

Written by Farmingdale Observer Staff Friday, 17 October 2014 08:43

Mentorship is one of those goals rotary clubs strive for, particularly when it comes to grooming future community business leaders. Nowhere was this more important than when the most recent Farmingdale Breakfast Rotary meeting’s guests were Stanley Pelech, director of Integrated Academic and Technical studies and Jodi Haniquet, advisor of the Farmingdale High School (FHS) Interact club. Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people. The Farmingdale Breakfast Rotary is the sponsor of the 75-plus student strong high school club. Advisor Jodi Haniquet reported to Rotary club members what  fundraising events the Interact Club will participate in for the 2015 school year. The service group will once again team with FHS student government in a food drive – donations collected for Island Harvest pantries. They will also participate in Ronald McDonald house dinner program – cooking and serving meals on the premises in New Hyde Park for the many families staying at the residence while their seriously ill children receive treatment at nearby hospitals.

Strapping In For Safety

Venditto holds

car seat demonstration

Years ago the idea of child safety was to pile kids in the back of a station wagon with blankets or if they were old enough to sit shotgun in the front seat, the safety strap was mom’s arm coming across the seat as she stopped suddenly. This turned out not to be the best plan in reducing children’s deaths in an auto crash, so in 1978 the first mandated car safety seat law was enacted in Tennessee and soon other states would follow. New York State has enacted some of the toughest laws regarding child safety transport with car seats and although it has proven that these do save lives, the problem is 90 percent of these lifesaving devices are installed incorrectly.
