President’s Message

As we near the end of SRF month I would like to thank you for your incredible generosity – and encourage all of us to give generously to our own Salem Rotary Foundation. Your contributions make an enormous difference and allow us to make meaningful and transformative investments in support of our community. Thank you!

We are honored this week to welcome Rear Admiral Mike Brown in celebration of Willamette Valley Navy Week. In this environment of rapidly evolving technology and an ever-evolving geo-political landscape, Rear Adm. Brown’s presentation will help us develop a better understanding of the importance of the US Navy to our national security. 

Thank you in advance for joining me in giving him a warm, Rotary welcome on Wednesday.
