The Rotary Club of Salem dedicated the Pavilion on the North edge of Riverfront Park in 2004. Since then, the City of Salem has done an excellent job maintaining the space. The Pavilion is used by hundreds of people every year, and has been a centerpiece of the park for almost 20 years.
As a Centennial Commemoration, Rotary Club of Salem built a 1,764 square feet open-air pavilion in Salem Riverfront Park, which was donated to the City of Salem upon completion. Many dedicated Rotarians spent two years on this project with over 100 local businesses and individuals joining in to contribute to the facility. Our annual Raffle netted over $30,000 to help fund the pavilion and other youth programs in our community. To further celebrate our 100th anniversary, each week a “Centennial Moment” was read at the meeting, and published in our bi-weekly Rotogram to share Rotary’s history with the membership.
