Super hero! Thank you!

Hey everyone! Our next feature is for Christine Cudihy! She’s works as a nurse practitioner, and in her free time is one of the most dedicated volunteers I’ve ever spoken with. She’s been consistently picking up trash for 15 years! She regularly volunteers for us, for Spur, and for Salem Sound CoastWatch. It’s more than reasonable to say that her efforts alone have had had a massive impact on Salem, the nearby communities, and on the ocean! We can’t thank her enough for all of her hard work and dedication, Salem might look really different if not for her!

Bargains to be had on Bridge Street tomorrow!

Good afternoon! As promised here is the map of all the houses participating in the yard sales on Saturday, June 12th! Also marked on the map are ATM locations and spots to grab coffee and food in our amazing neighborhood. Stop by Coffee Time Bake Shop for coffee and a donut before heading out with your map! Grab a tasty sandwich at Chez Casa.. I hear they are doing a breakfast sandwich and coffee combo for $6.66! Residency Records will be doing "Record Store Day"... tons of exclusives as well as 10% off used inventory. They only do this twice a year. Please enjoy our Bridge Street Neighborhood and respect the parking limitations some streets have. Carlton School has a nice lot that is centrally located to the houses participating. If you have any questions, let me know! Happy hunting!

It's a bird! It's a plane! ... It's Salem's fabulous Christmas tree. Shake off those wonky, stressful Covid-19 feelings and embrace the magic of the holiday season. Thank you, Salem. 🎄

A 40 foot blue spruce just arrived at Lappin Park, courtesy of the local O'Brien family. Thanks to the City of Salem for coordinating, and for @irontreeservice and Spencer Contracting for delivery. The tree will be installed today and decorated next week. #pleasedontbreak #holidaytree #salemholidays #staylocalsalem #salemmainstreets #salemma

SalemRecycles Hosts Textile + TerraCycle Recycling Drive
November 21st at Riley Plaza 8am until 1pm in #SalemMA

Start saving now! SalemRecycle's annual Clothing & Household Textiles Recycling Drive is Saturday, Nov. 21 from 8:00am - 1:00pm. Look for the HELPSY truck in Riley Plaza.

* NEW THIS YEAR * -- We've partnered with TerraCycle to have special collections for shaving razors and Swiffers. TerraCycle offers recycling solutions for otherwise hard-to-recycle items.

~ Swiffers: save all used, dry Swiffer pads.
~ Razors: save all brands of reusable and disposable razor units, blades, & cartridges, as well as any flexible or rigid plastic packaging they come in.
~ Separate: please keep textiles & swiffers & razors separated in your vehicle.

WHY TEXTILES? -- Textiles are valuable resources that can be reused, cut into rags, or ground up into new products! They can't be placed in curbside recycle bins where they become "tanglers," and they needn't go in the trash.

DROP OFF -- clean & dry clothing, sneakers, shoes, boots, slippers, belts, ties, purses, stuffed animals, comforters, sheets, blankets, table linens, and curtains.

ANY CONDITION -- as long as clean and dry. Can be new and reusable, old and moth-eaten, torn, stained or damaged, broken belt, single sock or shoe. Damaged textiles can be recycled!

PLEASE, NO -- carpet, rugs, pillows, bric-a-brac, oil rags, wet or mildewed items.

* * * SOCIAL DISTANCING * * * Please stay in your vehicle the whole time and have your items ready to unload in your trunk, truck bed or hatchback -- items will not be unloaded from car seats. Please wear a face covering the whole time.

For more info, contact Micaela Guglielmi at [email protected] or 978-619-5672

I love this!

Habitat ball constructed from combining two hanging baskets makes a wonderful backyard project. Finding bits of nature to help the wee things "make do"is a treasure hunt; meanwhile, we must learn to make do with less consumerism, less plastic, less waste.

More beneficials please, give them a home. Thank you for concerning yourself with the ecological health of our beautiful garden.

Many thanks!

Awesome!

Awesome!

The new bike/walking paths near Collins Cove look fantastic! These paths now give us separated bike lanes from (almost) the MBTA, through Bridge Street neck, to Collins Cove, Derby Street and the Willows!

I'm also excited to hear that the city is considering additional safety measures along Fort Ave, including rumble strips and "armadillos". As a parent, I'm anxious to leave the car at home and ride to Waikiki with my kids. These new protective measures will help to keep my kids (and everyone else) safe! @ Salem, Massachusetts

Wow!! what a mighty endeavor!! Moving Madame Butterfly ...This purple butterfly bush left its 10 year home on the Washington Street Median Strip & was safely moved by Bill, Steve & Tyler under the supervision of Kevin Cornacchio to David Beede Park on Derby Street. It’s a beautiful addition of color & butterfly attraction. Thank you Park & Rec and Sam Fiore and Giulia Bellofatto! 🥰

Here are few of the unsung heroes of Salem. This team of volunteers weeds, trims vegetation, plants beautiful flowers, sweeps, and fills bag and bags of debris at many of the traffic island and median strips in Salem.

A special shout out to these folks - (back row) Charlene Bailey, Nancy Neville, Lucy Sprague, Janis Manning, Sam Fiore, (front row) Magaly Gelena, Sandi Power, and John Melin (Missing from photo are Giula Bellofatto, Beverly Moustakis, Carol Amodeo, Stephanie Hagyard, Mary Ellen Halliwell).

This is so important. Please help our restaurants and support this bill. There's been plenty of money given to big corps and airlines, etc. Restaurants and small businesses need relief and are the hearts of towns and cities.

This is no joke. So many of our wholesale accounts have not come back which means they are not viable right now. This in turn effects bakeries like ours who service restaurants as well as all the other food vendors in the supply chain. This is still a HUGE issue. We are definitely not out of the woods. The PPP will not save all those who got it. Please support!

Repost from @massrestaurantsunited

In order for restaurants to serve communities again and assist in reigniting the economy, we need Congress to pass the RESTAURANTS Act, establishing the $120B Independent Restaurant Revitalization Fund.

Ask your reps for their support — head to @indprestaurants website to take action today: www.saverestaurants.com/take-action
