President's Message

City Club Members:
    As we wind up our program year, and look to the Fall for next year, we have some duties to take care of as a club.
    First, I want to thank you all for your support of the Salem City Club in pursuing its mission of sponsoring interesting, informative and vital forums on important issues and activities for the Mid-Willamette Valley.  It would not happen without you, no matter how many or how few of our activities you are actually able to attend. 
    Many of us feel it has been quite a successful year -- we have had great speakers and programs, and the attendance has been quite high compared to past years.  We look forward to continuing in this vein -- especially in a presidential election year!
    Our annual meeting, featuring former Governor Barbara Roberts, is fast approaching, and will of course be in the Dye House on Sunday, June 10th.  Without taking any more time than necessary from our conversation with Governor Roberts, we will have some minor business items to attend to.
    First, as our by-laws require, the membership must vote on the proposed slate of officers and Board members for next year.  Second, we invite your nominations for the Carole Eggers Citizenship Award, given periodically to any active and community-spirited City Club member who particularly displays the community service goals of the club.
    The nominating committee proposes the following Board Governor appointees:
        Bob Martin (in the Governor position being vacated by Linda Teal)
        Cindy Condon (in the Governor position being vacated by Rev. Rick Davis)

    Continuing  Governors (no vote needed) are:
        Tom Golden
        Alan Pollock
        Petra Berger
        John Adams

    The remaining Board members are the various officers.
    You have until noon. Wednesday , June 6th,  to suggest additional board nominees or Eggers Award nominees, and they will be considered by the nominating committee and acted on appropriately by the annual meeting.   Letters of nomination should be sent
to, or to Salem City Club, P.O. Box 2283, Salem OR  97308.
    Finally, the proposed slate of officers next year must also be affirmed by the entire membership at the annual meeting.  (Sorry -- if you don't attend you don't get to vote...)  This slate will look quite familiar, since Carla Mikkelson as the incoming Program Committee Chair is the only new officer.  The nominating committee proposes that Russ Beaton return as President,  Jan Margosian as Past President, Anita Saafeld as Treasurer, and Lloyd Chapman as Membership Chairman. 
  You heard it here first, and thanks again for your wonderful support throughout the year.
Russ Beaton
2011-12 Salem City Club President

Promoting Literacy in Our Community
In honor of Governor Roberts' appearance at the Salem City Club’s annual celebration, SCC will forego its traditional silent auction fundraiser and instead give back to the community by partnering with Marion County’s “Reading for All".
Every spring break, Reading for All provides books and Marion Polk Food Share provides free meals to low income children in Salem-Keizer School District and various cities in  Marion County.  This Spring Break, 8,000 lunches were served and more than 7,000 childrens books were distributed in 42 locations in the Salem-Keizer School District and rural Marion County, including schools, churches, community centers and all of the Boys and Girls clubs.

Salem City Club members are asked to support these programs by collecting new and slightly-used books for readers pre-school through the third grade and by bringing them to the annual meeting. There is a special need for books (Spanish and English).  Scroll down for a  list of suggested authors and book titles.   Cash donations will also be welcome. 

According to Arturo Vargas, program coordinator for the county program, it takes an entire year to collect the thousands of books needed for the Spring Break program.  The Salem City Club’s donations will kick-start the collecting for next year’s giveaway. 

Vargas explained, “Many of these children as so excited about receiving a book that they always want to read the book before their meal." 

Reading for All Book Donation
Suggested Titles
Here are some of the titles that children and families love to have. Most of these titles can be ordered both in English and Spanish.  Reading for All is an initiative that promotes literacy in the Northern Willamette Valley region.  The intent is to encourage reading for children and families in order to promote academic and lifelong success.
