Club News – RCoS Helps Hosts PETS
The Rotary Club of Salem was well represented at the Rotary District 7570 President Elect Training Session (PETS) held at the Hotel Roanoke. Lisa Garst, President Elect, and Ray Byrd, President Nominee, both attended the training sessions which began Thursday afternoon and continued through Saturday morning. The PETS is designed to give all incoming club presidents the information that they need to be successful leaders for their respective clubs.
June and Bill Long brought the shelter box and information to the resource fair on Friday afternoon. Barney Horrell and Charlie Thompson demonstrated our electronic registration system at the fair as well. On Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, Salem Club members acted as “greeters/guides” for the PETS attendees: Dee King, Jim Bowen, Danielle Crawford, Brenda Stephenson, June Long, Bill Long and Tommy Barber.
