For the past 10 years, the Rotary Club of Salem has been placing the United States flag on display in homes throughout the community during Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Patriot Day, and Veterans Day.
Community members provide funds for their homes. Our club members place the flags from Memorial Day through Independence Day and Labor Day through Veterans Day.
The cost for one year is $35/year. Proceeds go to the Rotary sponsored projects in the Salem area.
More information will be available next spring for 2023 flag placements.
As our Centennial gift to the community, the Rotary Club of Salem is proud to create the Salem Rotary Family Sports Center located in Waterworth Memorial Park behind the Salem Community Center.
When complete, the mini-park will include a central gazebo-style pavilion with surrounding benches, practice soccer field, sand and grass volleyball courts, a cross-fit area, two batting cages, two golf practice cages, a large children’s playground area, and grass areas.
We have raised more than $200,000 for this family friendly park for all ages which is currently under construction with an expected completion date of spring 2023.
