Official Newsletter of the Salem Rotary Club

David Gardner

Stoneham Rotary Club


This week, friend of Salem Rotary Dave Gardner came to speak about ClubRunner. David is a Paul Harris Fellow and past Regional President from the Stoneham Rotary Club.

One of David's passions is ClubRunner, which is a cloud-based service that manages organization and membership information. David covered many features of ClubRunner, such as how to send and track an email, manage volunteer opportunities, and access the club activity report. On the administrative side, members can update their profiles, track member engagement, manage committees, and design bulletins (like The Spoke).

the four way test

Sherry Leonard shared her thoughts this week on the  Four Way Test. She focused on people in her life who have shaped her and how they connect with the principles of the Four Way Test. For example, her military father treated everyone with fairness. He also believed in truth and honesty.  Her mother exhibited good will and creating better friendships by volunteering so much that she worked “overtime”. Sherry's own profession where she works with healthcare for the elderly continues to center around fairness to all.  Next week is Dave Wescott's turn!

Lifebridge Dinner
Wednesday, May 11
Volunteers are needed for the next dinner for Lifebridge. Please contact Jane Stirgwolt if you would like to volunteer!
Freshmen Fund
Jason Conslavo will be in touch with this year’s Salem Rotary Freshmen to discuss the Freshmen Fund which allows new members of the Club to decide what project or cause the Club should support this year with a $1000 donation.


Jason Consalvo is clearly relieved that Harrison has his mom's athleticism, which was on full display at the first baseball game of the seasons. Jason is far superior at throne management though. 

Viktoria Talebian will be donating even more money to the Birthday Fund, adding her significant other's birthday to the growing list. Thank you!

Bruce Whear had a great time not being successful at all finding rocks. Relaxation and family time are not to be overlooked! 

Claire Kallelis recognized Robert for helping break down dance floor to ensure we could meet this week. The tickets to the party for The Spoke editorial staff was apparently lost in the mail.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion statement

At Rotary, we understand that cultivating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture is essential to realizing our vision of a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change.
We value diversity and celebrate the contributions of people of all backgrounds, across age, ethnicity, race, color, disability, learning style, religion, faith, socioeconomic status, culture, marital status, languages spoken, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity as well as differences in ideas, thoughts, values, and beliefs.
Recognizing that individuals from certain groups have historically experienced barriers to membership, participation, and leadership, we commit to advancing equity in all aspects of Rotary, including in our community partnerships, so that each person has the necessary access to resources, opportunities, networks, and support to thrive.
We believe that all people hold visible and invisible qualities that inherently make them unique, and we strive to create an inclusive culture where each person knows they are valued and belong.
In line with our value of integrity, we are committed to being honest and transparent about where we are in our DEI journey as an organization, and to continuing to learn and do better.
