My New Year’s Wish
for Salem

"Cheers to a New Year, and
another chance to get it right."
                                 Oprah Winfrey

If you could have one New Year’s wish for Salem, what would it would be?
2014 is just around the corner.  It’s time to close the book on 2013 and think about the future of our city.  We’ve assembled a panel of Salem residents to do just that. Our panel represents a broad range of occupations, ages, and civic involvement but they all have one thing in common: some thoughts on what they’d like to see happen (or not) in Salem next year.
Join us on Friday, December 13
, as Guest Moderator Michael Davis, Executive Editor of the Statesman Journal, and a panel of Salem citizens share their New Year’s Wishes for our fair city and why they chose those wishes.   We’ve given our citizen panel carte blanche to express their New Year’s wishes for Salem -- modest, amazing, humorous, mundane, outrageous, pie-in-the-sky, provocative, revolutionary, or down-to-earth wishes. 
What’s your New Year's wish for Salem?  Bring
it on December 13 and be ready to share.

Salem City Club Membership Grows
Thanks to those members who have invited guests to SCC programs this year and encouraged people to join the club. Our fall programs were a terrific introduction to Salem City Club. They were all top-notch programs. Our guests must have thought so, too, because we added 20 new members since September 15.
We will continue the effort to increase our membership throughout the 2013-14 program year, but the formal part of our 2013-14 Membership Drive will come to a close on December 13, 2013. If you are identified as "sponsor" for a new member who joins before December 13, your name will be entered into a drawing for a Weekend at the Beach. And, remember, Member for a Day certificates are still available for guests.
Membership growth is important to Salem City Club for several reasons. New members add vigor and vibrancy to the club, potential speakers may be more receptive with a larger audience for their presentation, and of course, membership dues have a big impact on our budget and ability to support our excellent programming.
If you haven't invited a guest to a Salem City Club program, please make a point to do so. We think your guest will enjoy the program, the people and the energy of Salem City Club.
