President’s Message

Leading by Example 

Greetings, Fellow Rotarians! I hope this note finds you well!

Thank you SO much, all those of you to took the time to register for the State of the City address last week and made the effort to be there! We had a LOT of Rotarians in the room, and you made me very proud to be serving as your President this year. Having so many of you there really spoke volumes about your commitment to our city, and showcased how Rotarians lead by example, so please accept my heartfelt thanks.

I’m looking forward to our program this week which will help us understand how hunger affects the most vulnerable in our community: the elderly, the homeless, and children. Special thanks to Program Chair Elise Bauman!

I appreciate you all and look forward to seeing you Wednesday!

Yours in Rotary Service,

President Alison Kelley
Rotary Club of Salem
