Club President Lisa Garst & Friends

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Salem, Virginia. Even though we are part of a global service organization with 1.2 million members, the Rotary Club of Salem is small enough to know each other and big enough to get things done.

We work hard but manage to have a really good time while honoring our commitment to Service Above Self. Our Club has raised more than $1 million over the past 30 years for charity and community service projects throughout the Roanoke Valley, Southwest Virginia and the world. We also enjoy the fellowship of Rotary. Many of us have built lasting friendships that endure outside of our weekly meetings.

Our Rotary Club has served the Salem and Roanoke Valley communities since 1949. Our members include business leaders, professionals, entrepreneurs, tradespeople and government officials who make Service Above Self a part of daily life. To find out more, we invite you to join us any Thursday at noon at the Salem Civic Center.

How do we serve our community? Our Club organizes and directs several fundraisers including:

Finally, you can spot our work in everyday life. Our Club is proud to have sponsored these projects:
