This week at rotary...

Vice President Carolyn Shapiro
Salem Rotary has formed a large committee to focus on membership growth, retention and diversity. A team of 18 Rotarians have been assigned to achieve these goals this Rotary year.
As part of the fun, Salem Rotarians are now ball players! Each teammate will keep a scorecard to track accomplishments in membership throughout the year. This includes a weekly lottery where Salem Rotarians will either share updates on membership goals or win a prize. Succeeding is easy, because part of the success comes in tracking what we already do as Rotarians!
Members of the committee each have a baseball card that lists their goals for the year. For example, Leslie Levesque’s goals include launching a school committee participation campaign; launching Salem Rotary Early Act, and scheduling a student lunch presentation. Bob Anthony’s goals include reaching out by phone or email to a member we haven't seen in a while and engage their participation; mail get well cards to members who are ill; and surprise a fellow Rotarian with flowers or a bottle of wine. Collect all 18 cards!
While the core team will complete the tasks on their baseball cards, they will also lead the Club in achieving the “Awesome Team Goals for ALL Members:”
  • Invite at least one new person to a Rotary event or lunch
  • Attend at least one networking event in your community as a Salem Rotary representative
  • Participate in at least one Rotary activity per year.
Carolyn and Marie Cardillo are chairing this initiative and welcome your input and suggestions. Let’s all step up to the plate, build up our team, and have a great Rotary Year!

No Winners This Week 


  • Mike McLaughlin shared that he, Carolyn and Claire attended the Robert C Wood Memorial Heroes Celebration, where fellow Rotarian Joanne Scott was honored as a community hero. Congratulations, Joanne!
  • Joe Amico shared that Jim Bailey has moved to AdviniaCare. He and Claire would appreciate your well wishes and notes if you have a minute to send one.
  • Bruce Whear had the fun opportunity to star as the only adult in an all children’s cast in a production at Marblehead Little Theatre. As Principal Augustus, he purposefully chose to wear two different color shoes as part of his costume. One castmate, a seven-year-old girl, thoughtfully asked, “Mr. Whear, do you know that you are wearing two different shoes?” It’s good to know that Bruce has a fellow actor in his corner!
  • Jason Consalvo thanked the Club for welcoming his boys to the meeting last week and for helping them meet their goals in wreath sales.
  • Gerrit Bradley had the chance to fly to LA for a 25th reunion. He highly recommends LA and LAFC. Catch a game if you can!

Kernwood Country Club
We will once again be participating in the DCF Holiday event at Kernwood Country Club. There are many shifts available beginning as early as 9:15 in the morning when volunteers are needed to help transport the gifts from Danvers to Salem. Setup at the Kernwood will be from 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM. The party will last from 1 – 3 PM, and clean up will be from 3 PM until it’s clean! Please contact Liz Bradt for more details and to sign up!
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.
