As we head into the 2011 holiday season, this is the perfect time to reflect on the exceptional and generous community that we are proud to be a part of. This month, The Salem Block team interacted with hundreds of people from all over our state dedicated to spirit of service. We were honored to serve these outstanding organizations that are dedicated to building our community.
Here are just a few highlights of the events at “The Salem Block” this month:
- 2011 Civic Engagement Conference: It was exciting to see so many Oregonians come to The Salem Conference Center earlier this month eager to learn more about volunteerism and civic engagement. This event was presented by Oregon Volunteers!
- 2011 Habitat for Humanity annual HopeBuilder Breakfast: Hundreds of people in our community came out to learn more about Habitat for Humanity when they hosted their annual HopeBuilder Breakfast here at The Salem Conference Center on November 8, 2011. All money raised during the event will help build more homes for families in need in our community.
- 2011 Civil War Dinner & Auction: On Thursday November 17, Ducks and Beavers Fans came out in full force when The Boys and Girls Club of Marion County hosted their annual fundraiser, 2011 Civil War Dinner & Auction at the Salem Conference Center. The Salem Block was proud to be supporting sponsors of this event which raised funds to support local clubs, athletics, and outreach programs!
