October 13: Boys & Girls Club – Expanding Serves and Growing Impact in an Underserved Area
We will hear an update from our very own, Sue Bloom, on the Epping Homestead Boys & Girls Club – a new Clubhouse currently under construction in Northeast Salem. Sue Bloom is the Chief Executive Officer of the Boys & Girls Club of Salem, Marion, and Polk Counties and is leading the charge in expanding the Club’s programs and services to an underserved area of our community. She will be sharing the positive impact the new Clubhouse will have on youth and families in Northeast Salem, and provide an overview of the current operations of the other seven Clubhouses currently serving the youth who need it most throughout Marion and Polk.
Program Chair: Robbin Kerner
Meeting Location: Willamette Heritage Center’s Spinning Room
Message from President Chane
Greetings Fellow Rotarians:
Our new Rotary members
Big shout out to Lauren Gutierrez for putting together a great New Member Orientation last week. We had so many new members attend and I’m pretty sure we all walked away with useful information about our club. John McCulley shared some of Rotary’s history and the ways we can give to our club, both monetarily and with our time. And of course, our club secretary – Holly Berry – masterfully walked us through our District and Club Data Base (DACdb).
Without argument, we have a great cadre of new members so please take the time to visit during our meetings.
2021 Grant application deadline – change
And news for applicants for the large grant….the deadline to apply has been extended to November 7th, 2021. I’m sure our nonprofit partners will appreciate the extra time!
And a gentle request…it would be wonderful if you would state your name/organization when you are either introducing a guest, making an announcement, or asking a question of a program speaker. That way all our newer members will get to know you!
