Community Engagement &
Outreach Projects

The SAWC Civic Engagement Committee encourages all SAWC members to increase their awareness and involvement in Civic Engagement. Volunteering is one of the best ways to put civic duty into action and foster a stronger sense of community. Listed below are some ways you can contribute to our community and world.

Veterans Day

Veterans Day is coming up - Friday November 11, 2022 and it is all about honoring our soldiers, both past and present, who have made sacrifices for our freedom.


We don’t know them all, but we owe them all.


You can honor them by thanking all veterans in your life, and community, for their service– they’ve earned it. A simple “thank you for your service” will bring a smile to their face.

Salem’s Holiday Parade

Salem’s Holiday Parade is Sunday November 27th 2022 at 1:00. This year’s parade theme is “Christmas at the Zoo”.

Our club will walk with our SAWC banner in the parade and hand out small stuffed animals to the children.


This is an easy way for our members to participate in a community event and help foster the small-town community atmosphere of Salem.


Please consider walking with us. Event details will be available at our next SAWC meeting on Tue. 11/1/22.
