Club Meeting – May 18th, 2017

We had a full program agenda today. We met some of the elementary school students benefitting from our Dictionaries for Kids initiative.  This Rotary Club of Salem program annually provides dictionaries to every City of Salem third grade student.  In addition, we were introduced to the Salem High School representatives who were sponsored for 2016 and 2017 to attend the World Affairs Seminar in Wisconsin.

The highlight of the program was the presentation of our club’s Service Above Self Award to Lisa Bain. The award is given in recognition of service offered by a non-Rotarian in a non-management position which the committee considers to be exceptional and which reflects the core values of Rotary.
