Samuel C. Cali’s entire life was defined by community service and involvement. Throughout his life, Sam served our community in many ways; as a director of Fidelity Bank, a Dunmore councilman, Register of Wills and on the boards of many nonprofit organizations, including the YMCA.

Sam was also one of the founding fathers of the Dunmore Rotary club, where he served as club president, attended international rotary conferences and hosted 14 exchange students. Recognized as a “Paul Harris Fellow” by Rotary International, Sam was generous to all civic causes and was the epitome of “Self Above Service.”
