Friday and Saturday, April 29 and 30 Volunteers are needed to help get Salem’s premier park ready for the upcoming warm days ahead. The annual Field of Dreams Spring Clean-Up will take place over two days this year, Friday and Saturday, April 29 and 30. Clean-up operations will run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday and from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday.

The DEA has scheduled a second National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, that will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Department of Public Works, 21 Cross Street, Salem. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. More than seven million Americans currently abuse prescription drugs, according to the 2009 Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Each day, approximately, 2,500 teens use prescription drugs to get high for the first time according to the Partnership for a Drug Free America. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including the home medicine cabinet. This is a great opportunity for those who missed the first event or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs, to safely dispose of them. In an effort to address this problem, DEA, in conjunction with state and local law enforcement agencies throughout the United States, conducted the first ever National
Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, September 25, 2010. The purpose of this National Take-Back Day was to provide a venue for persons who wanted to dispose of unwanted and unused prescription drugs. This effort was a huge success in removing potentially dangerous prescription drugs, particularly controlled substances, from our nation’s medicine cabinets. There were approximately 3,000 state and local law enforcement agencies throughout the nation that participated in the event. All told, the American Public turned in more than 121 tons of pills on this first National Take-Back Day. Due to the overwhelming success of the first event, DEA has scheduled the second National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day that will take place on Saturday, April 30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Department of Public Works, 21 Cross Street. This is a great opportunity for those who missed the first evvent or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs, to safely dispose of them.
