September 15: iRespect & Protect
This program will highlight the new, community-based iRespect & Protect program and will include information and helpful tools for children, youth, families and educators. Launched in early 2021 after three years of planning, community input and development, iRespect & Protect is a community campaign supporting the lives of children, teens and families by fostering positive self-worth, promoting healthy online choices, and encouraging safe relationships. 
Several Rotarians have actively participated in the early visioning and development of iRespect and Protect, including our own Past President Sue Bloom, Salem Hospital’s own Cyndi Leinassar, Liberty House Board member Vincenzo Meduri, and many more! We will hear from Project Coordinator Crystal Deffenbaugh after a short introduction from Liberty House CEO Alison Kelley.
Meeting Location: Willamette Heritage Center’s Spinning Room
Program Chair: Sue Bloom
Message from President Chane
Greetings Fellow Rotarians:
I was thrilled to see the response to last week’s announcement about our efforts to raise money for the Vietnam War Memorial by collecting bottles. At the end of the meeting, about a fourth of the bags I ordered were spoken for. Let me know if you need a bag – it’s a pretty simple way to join other regional clubs in supporting a great cause.
And who was one of our first depositors? Bob Elliott, a relatively new member to our club, sent me this photo. I’m pretty sure that will give you some points, Bob, toward getting your blue badge.
Take care,
