April 13: Reducing Food Waste
Globally, we waste over 1.4 billion tons of food annually. The US discards more food than any other country in the world – nearly 40 million tons every year. But there is good news. Food waste can be reduced easily through thoughtful planning by each of us.
Rachel VanWoert, Waste Reduction Coordinator with Marion County Environmental Services, will discuss reducing food waste in commercial and residential garbage, and ways we can help fight food waste at home, work, and in the community.

Greetings Fellow Rotarians,
Salem Health Foundation
Jim Bauer had a great presentation last week and our community is so fortunate to have them as our health resource. I can say from recent personal experience, that everything I experienced was the best in class. I was so impressed that a couple of days later I even filled out their online survey. I never do that.
Reminder about Singing Opportunity at the District Conference
This year’s District 5100 District Conference will again include a Memorial Remembrance service on Sunday morning (May 22), remembering and giving thanks to those Rotarians of our District who have died during this Rotary Year. 
The service will include a choral anthem, performed by a “Pick-Up Rotary Choir.” If you, or any of your club members, are interested in being a part of the choir, please contact Duane Sich, RC of Greater Clark County, DnJSich@icloud.com, or 360-936-3461 for information.  
A rehearsal time will be arranged during a break period at the District Conference on Saturday.
