Changing of the Flags
by Len Lathrop
In a special service, an Honor Guard of the JROTC Cadets from Salem High School changed the worn fl ags that honor America at Salemhaven Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. Honor Guard member Tiffany Peppe, along with Lindsey Vining, Kathlyn Carne, and Amy Fialkowski under the watchful direction of CMSgt. Thomas Puzzo, carefully replaced the fl ags. The American fl ag and POW fl ag were donated by Salem’s American Legion Post No. 63 and their Auxiliary, while State Representative Mary Griffi n contributed the State of New Hampshire fl ag. The timing of this event was included in the celebration of National Nursing Home Week. Representing the American Legion were Adjunct Rico Casaletto and Auxiliary President Pat Casaletto, with the help of Stephanie Micklon, Community Liaison for Salemhaven and a member of the Legion Auxiliary. Also, Salemhaven residents were given poppies to honor Veterans of Foreign Wars, which has been a tradition since 1920.
It was said:

This was a time to wander among the many beautiful paintings, get some new ideas to try, and to mingle among artists to chat with them or to watch them paint some of their images. Emerald Strings provided entertainment, and all attendees had a great time. Edith Kaufman founded the Greater Salem Artists Association in 1885 with the purpose of bringing together those who share a common interest in all mediums of art. As a non-profi t organization, this association supports local young artists with yearly scholarships, provides education and information to its members, and encourages all artists to share and grow together.

‘Walking the Plank’
by Robyn Hatch
Haigh School’s new principal, Chris Honey-Nadeau, tends to run
the school with artsy fl air. This year, a great, big thank-you dinner in a pirate theme was
given to the volunteers and teachers, complete with outlandish costumes and props. It was a time for the many volunteers to just chill out and really enjoy themselves. This was the fi rst time for Haigh’s school staff to host a dinner to show appreciation to the volunteers who have helped Haigh to be successful. The pirate theme was titled “We Treasure You,” with pirate- appropriate fun throughout the night. The dinner was huge with hand-made items by all to enjoy. A huge pirate stood in the corner watching over the guests, with dancing and laughing happening during the course of the evening. It was said that if you don’t have a good time, you will have to walk the plank! Luckily, no one had to...an
d the fun lasted way into the night.
