Bradshaw leads Salisbury Rotary Club

Salisbury Rotary president

Chris Bradshaw

SALISBURY — Chris Bradshaw has taken office as president of the Salisbury Rotary Club, succeeding Brad Bost.

Bradshaw, president of C.S. Bradshaw Construction, has been a member of the club for six years. Long involved in supporting Rowan Helping Ministries, he has been chairman of the Shelter Ministries board and was instrumental in the agency’s recent construction project.

Other officers are Eric Nianouris, president-elect; Bill Lee, treasurer; and Donnie Clement, secretary.

Bost said coming to the end of his term was bittersweet, and he thanked his father, Wayne Bost, for introducing him to Rotary. During his year as president, the club launched the Happy Feet project, helping some 90 children pick out and buy new shoes last August at Shoe Carnival. A matching grant from the Rotary International Foundation made it possible. The club will repeat the project on Aug. 20.

The club’s pickleball tournament raised $6,500 to go toward matching grants next year and to make a donation to the Appleseed Project. The annual Rotary Raffle, which supports the club’s scholarship fund, netted more than $22,000. The Rotary Tennis Tournament was successful. The club gained new 11 members, bringing its total to 116.

Bost announced he was giving a Paul Harris Fellowship to Jon Post, the “unsung hero” of the pickleball and tennis tournaments who Bost said worked tirelessly to support the club without being a member.
