Message from President Bruce
Hey Howdy Hey, Salem Rotarians!
It’s great to be a part of Rotary, isn’t it? This year’s theme declares, “Rotary, Making a Difference.” Through our own Salem Rotary Foundation, we are making a difference right here in our community. Earlier this year, SRF awarded grants for some pretty basic things that we’ll hear about this week – meds for low income people, encouragement for people with addiction issues trying to turn-around their lives, support for kids, and much more.  Touching lives in this way is quite humbling and makes me proud to be a Rotarian.
You all, through your generous donations, are the reason we’re able to make these awesome things happen . . . be that through Bellringers, buying raffle tickets at lunch, direct donations to SRF, including SRF in your Will, and coming to and buying a package (or two or three) at our annual Good Works event in February 2018. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
DON’T FORGET . . . this month’s Bellringers are being enhanced by matching dollars from some of our fellow Salem Rotarians! It’s a great time to get yours at this week’s meeting!
I’ll see you at Rotary!
Tomorrow’s Meeting
