Message from President Bruce
Season’s Greetings, Salem Rotarians!
December and the Winter Holiday Season is in full gear with tree lightings, Menorah lightings, parades, concerts – basically, a wonderful season of fellowship! I thought I would highlight this week our remaining three Rotary meetings in December:
Dec. 13: At South Salem High School (NOTE SPECIAL LOCATION!). Meet in the Library for lunch by the South Culinary Students; then, a seasonal concert for us by the South Chamber Orchestra! The Rose Auditorium is so beautiful at this time of year! Parking is on the street; enter through the main entrance on Church Street. Lunch service starts at 11:45; program will begin extra early that day!
Dec. 20: Annual December Lunch for the Salvation Army! Special lunch featuring prime rib and the works, filling the kettle for the Salvation Army (yes, the band will be there!), and a special program with all Salem-area Rotary In-Bound Exchange Students. DON’T MISS THIS ONE!
Dec. 27: Holiday Fellowship Time! Our Fellowship Team, led by Teresa Lulay, will have a wonderful time of fellowship for you all – always a great meeting!
I’ll see you at Rotary!


Tomorrow’s Meeting

December 13 – South Salem High School
Program – South Salem High School Lunch and Music Program
Join us at South Salem High School for lunch in the Library, followed by a Chamber Orchestra performance in the  Rose Auditorium. Lunch will be served by the award-winning SSHS Culinary class, under the guidance of their teacher Laura Hofer. The South Salem HS music program has a long history of excellence in Band, Choir and Orchestra performances. Please come early so you’ll have enough time to eat and enjoy the performance.PLEASE NOTE:
Tomorrow’s meeting (December 13) will be at South Salem High School, 1910 Church St SE, Salem.

  • Lunch service will be in the South Library(on the first floor). It will start earlier at 11:45am. Enter through the main entrance on Church Street.
  • Parking. Be sure to allow extra time to park (it’s on-the-street parking . . . during the school day).
  • Program starts early. We plan on starting the program at 12:05 as we will be treated to a special mini-concert by the South Chamber Orchestra following the served lunch!

As many of you may recall, we’ve held one of our December meetings in the past at South and it has always been a wonderful, holiday Rotary event. How delightful that this has worked out this year! Lunch will be prepared and served by the awesome South Culinary Students followed by a seasonal mini-concert by the outstanding South Chamber Orchestra! (Here’s hoping they’ve decorated the Rose Auditorium as they have in the past. Always beautiful and special!)
We don’t need RSVPs for this meeting but if you are planning on bringing a guest, could you please shoot Chuck Swank an email. Thanks!
