Contractors Help Food Pantries
submitted by Salem Contractors Association The Salem Contractors Association (SCA) held its Membership Meeting at
Harris’ Pelham Inn in Pelham on Thursday, October 21, where they hosted representatives from five area food pantries. All five food pantries received donations from the Salem Contractors Association, as well many of the members in attendance. In July, the SCA held their seventh annual Charity Golf Tournament,
which raises funds for these food pantries, as well as other community projects. “Our tournament may be small, but our members have huge hearts,” stated golf committee chairman, Bill Norton. “Since we’ve been doing this golf outing, we’ve managed to donate over $25,000 to these organizations. I can’t think of a better way to share the wealth.” And share the wealth they did. Four of the food pantries received
a check from the SCA in the amount of $500, with the town of Salem receiving $1,000. In addition, each organization received a check from Salem Co-Operative Bank, a huge supporter of the SCA. Members also brought bags of non-perishable food items and in a “pass the hat” effort, chipped in another $400. Organizations in attendance were: the town of Salem, St.
Joseph’s Church, Triumphant Cross-Bread of Life, Rockingham Community Action, and Pleasant Street United Methodist Church. The mission of the Salem Contractors Association is to
advance the building industry of the Salem area by providing a forum for the interchange of information and experience of member contractors and associated trades. To secure cooperative action and proper consideration of issues affecting the building industry for the common good of its members. Any local contractor or associated business person who lives
and/or works in the greater Salem area is welcome to attend. To learn more about the Association and its benefits, call President Tom Buja, TMB Electric, at 365-9927.

Vehicle Strikes Building on Main Street
by Andrea Ganley Dannewitz A motor-vehicle accident last Wednesday sent
one person to a local hospital as the result of the vehicle striking a building on Main Street. The accident occurred around 3:17 p.m. on October 20 and involved a Chevy Silverado and a Ford Taurus. The Ford Taurus struck the building at 286 Main Street, a brick building that houses Main Street Hair Salon and Prospect Tailors. One person, the driver of the Taurus, was taken
to a local hospital for treatment of injuries, but the vehicle remained there stuck to the building for quite some time. The building, though constructed of bricks, did sustain some damage, and the town’s building inspector was called out to inspect the damage. The accident caused quite a traffic backup
along Main Street, as police had to close the road temporarily, and then, about 30 minutes later, reopened the road with only one lane available for use. People who drive by the scene looked at the Taurus stuck to the building in complete awe, obviously wondering how that could have happened. It was not until about 4:20 p.m. that AAA was
able to pull the vehicle from the building, which eventually helped to relieve the traffic headache that was occurring on the very heavily used Main Street. When the call went out, Salem Fire Department responded with their entire shift, along with many police officers, as it was believed originally that the driver of the Ford Taurus may have been trapped inside of the vehicle. However, no extrication was needed. Deputy Police Chief Shawn Patten was
unavailable at the time of this report for comment.

submitted by Suzi Houde We had such an awesome morning with the Salem Fire Department on
A friendly volunteer with Jeffrey Gray, George Bannon, Xavier Ventura, Tara Flanders (in the rear), and Lillian Parker
Thursday, October 21. The firefighters who volunteered to talk with our pre- schoolers were very child-friendly, and made an interesting and informative presentation to our school. They discussed when and when not to call 911, what you’ll have to know in an emergency, and how to prepare your family. The highlight, as always, was getting to check out the fire engine up close. The Salem Fire Department always volunteers their time in October for Fire Safety Awareness Month.
