The place to be on Tuesday February 25th was the Salem Community Center for the Annual "Fat Tuesday" Celebration!

A great time was had by all !!!!! Those were the words that keep reverberating throught the Salem Community Center for the 21st Annual Salem Rotary and Kiwanis "Fat Tuesday Celebration" held to benefit the Salem Community Food Pantry of Salem.

Several local area food establishments, as well as a handful of "Celebrity Chefs" from Rotary and Kiwanis fed about 400 people dinner in celebration of the Fat Tuesday preparation of Lent. The celebrity chefs from Rotary included Matt & Laurie, Gina & Frank Apicella, and many other Rotary helpers who were there to help serve and clean up. Kiwanis Chefs included Mark Equizi, Melody Blazer, Nancy McCoy, and Jeri Close, who also had helpers to serve. We also must thank Key Club and Interact, who were a tremendous help as well!

The money that was raised is going directly to the Salem Community Food Pantry that services our area every day....which totaled almost $3,000!

Thanks to all who helped make this a great project for Rotary & Kiwanis!
