Message from President Bruce

Amazing programs and projects – we have a lot going on in the Rotary Club of Salem!

Living in the Totality Path of the Solar Eclipse, did you take time on Monday to view this sight? Personally, I cannot find appropriate words to adequately describe it. How fortunate were we in the Salem area to be treated to this heavenly spectacle! I’m reminded of the outstanding preview we got in June from retired astrophysicist Dan Adamo. Thanks again to Linda Wooters for bringing Dan to speak to our club!

Engaging with weekly programs is great but I invite you to join these amazing projects our club is involved with – Rotary Triathlon of Salem, Rotary Centennial Amphitheater Stage at Riverfront Park, or the Rotary Dictionary Project. The leaders on those projects could really use your help. The Rotary Triathlon taking place October 1 needs more course and set-up volunteers; our Dictionary Project leaders are holding a Labeling Party on August 28 (after the school year starts, these are then ready to hand out to each fourth grader in the greater Salem area); or join the fundraising campaign for the Rotary Centennial Amphitheater Stage as a financial donor.

Thanks for stepping up and helping us do good works in this great community!
