President’s Message

     Club President I. Ray Byrd, Jr.

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Salem, Virginia where we are making a difference in our community and in the world. You may know us by our sponsorship of Olde Salem Days, the Old Dominion Athletic Conference Basketball Tournament, or by Star B-Qour main fundraisers.  Or, you may know us by our commitment to helping our community and the world through projects such as Christmas for Kids, Little Free Libraries, Rotary Park, Rotary Dog Park and End Polio Now to name just a few.

You may also know the Rotary Club of Salem through our recognition of outstanding citizens and students in our community, who typify the values and ethics espoused by Rotary International.  Club sponsored awards such as the Roy W. Henrickson Outstanding Citizen Award, The Service Above Self Vocational Award, The Jostens Trophy and Salem Education Foundation Scholarships help us identify individuals who exemplify the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self.”

Our hard work and commitment to make a difference have allowed us over the past 30 years to raise more than $1 million for charity and community service programs throughout the Roanoke Valley, Southwest Virginia, and the world. But, most of our members will tell you, it is the fellowship and lasting friendships that they cherish most and find the most rewarding.  We have 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 their daily lives.  To find out more take a look around our website and follow us on Facebook.  You can also check out one of our meetings which are held at noon on Thursdays at the Salem Civic Center. We hope to see you there!
