Hard to believe summer is winding down, isn’t it? And for those of us parents with kids at home, here’s to another school year kicking off next week!
Speaking of coming events, our next two meetings will focus on major projects our Rotary Club is involved with . . . and would be a great way to introduce people you’ve been thinking about for membership in Rotary:
-Rotary Triathlon of Salem. This Wednesday, August 30, we’re at the Rotary Pavilion for our annual Picnic in the Park. (The weather should be great, by the way!) We’ll get the latest details on the first annual Rotary Triathlon of Salem, occurring October 1 at Riverfront Park which we are co-sponsoring with South Salem Rotary. There are many volunteer spots to fill – can you help out for a few hours on October 1? Come this Wednesday and sign up to help. The planners have an amazing event set that will showcase our park, the two bridges, and our unique location along the Willamette River – and notably, be a great outreach to the community at-large about Rotary!
-Rotary Centennial Amphitheater stage. What an exciting project to celebrate the 100th Anniversary in 2020 of Rotary in Salem – a new stage at the Amphitheater in Riverfront Park! On September 6, you’ll get keen insight and updates on where things are at with this gift to the city that will be an amazing support to this community and help many local groups better utilize this high-visibility location.
Are these exciting and interesting programs or what? Invite people you’ve been talking with about joining Rotary and ask them to come. Let’s expand our circle of members and bring them in to Rotary Club of Salem. Thanks for your help and we’ll see you at Rotary!
Program Chair: John Shirley
