Message from President Bruce:
Happy New Year, Salem Rotarians!
I hope your holidays have been going well. Bidding farewell to one year and welcoming a new one, a few thoughts:
Membership. I appreciate you all so much for your support as a member of our club! Who can you think of that would be a good fit for Rotary? Who could benefit by being a Rotarian? Who could help us grow as people and Rotarians? It would be great to see more folks join the Rotary Club of Salem, growing our numbers and strengthening our work in Salem and around the world! Please invite them to join us!
Participation. To paraphrase the US Army recruiting poster, “We need you!” There are numerous areas for you to join in – committees, hands-on projects, volunteering for upcoming events (see below). Keep looking if you haven’t found your niche yet. Thanks for your help and support!
Thankfulness. I am most thankful for the way in which you all bless me with your support of the good works our club is doing and will be doing, how you dedicate your time engaging in activities that help those in our society who need it, and the wonderful fellowship and friendship with one another that you display.
Coming Attractions. . .
-“Setting the Stage,” our Good Works event on Feb. 10 will be awesome! Raising dollars for the Gerry Frank Rotary Amphitheater and other good works our club is supporting in our community. Have you purchased your tickets yet?
-District 5100 Conference comes to Salem May 18-20. We will need all hands on deck for this one to help showcase Salem and support District Governor Renee Campbell.
I’ll see you at Rotary!
