Salem Senior Services Honors Volunteers by Doug Robinson Salem Senior Services hosted a recognition
luncheon at Harris’ Pelham Inn in honor of their volunteers last weekend, where approximately 110 volunteers attended. “We have great cause to celebrate.
Volunteers are the heart and the soul of Salem Senior Services. Our entire community benefits from a strong and vibrant Senior Center. We are extremely fortunate to reap tremendous rewards from more than 210 volunteers, 145 of whom give so generously of themselves on a regular, year-long basis,” states Salem Senior Services Director Patti Drelick. In 2010, “These special people gave over
12,860 hours of their most valuable assets—their personal time, talent, and knowledge. They’re teaching classes, assisting programs, providing services, helping others, mailings newsletters,

Charlie Bass Speaks at Rotary Club Meeting by S. Aaron Shamshoyan
Congressman Charlie Bass addressed the Rotary Club last Friday, speaking about his re-election, federal financial issues, and answering questions. Bass spoke on his re-election, saying that after he was previously defeated, he didn’t think he would see his name on a ballot again. Bass said he was there because it is a job he needs to do and worries that the country might soon go bankrupt. Bass spoke on his support for cutting the maximum tax rate from 35 percent to
25 percent, and simplifying the tax code. This would result in an increase of taxes from the higher income brackets due to reduced deductions. As to the budget, Bass said he had a goal “to get back to the spending levels we had on January 1, 2008.” He said the cost of government has gone up 85 percent over the past two years.
When asked about his thoughts regarding Libya, Congressman Bass said the problem is that we don’t know our enemies from our friends. He said the 10-day campaign was ridiculous, and that Europe is worried about its $2-million-a-day oil pipeline. He said Democrats and Republicans are split over the issue, and that John McCain wants to take the country over.
After the meeting, Congressman Bass proceeded to meet with employees at Enterprise Bank and later with the Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce. Previous to his most recent election, Bass had spent 12 years in Congress.

Elin O’Neil wrapped up the entertaining evening with a lively tap-dance performance to the song “Ain’t She Sweet.” Every performance was unique and enthusiastic, as each student put everything they had into their performances. Proud of her students, Lavallo said she “loved every minute of it, and she will miss [hosting] it dearly.”
After 26 years, she got to see the amount of talented kids wanting to be involved grow more and more each year. “There are over 50 auditions for the talent show yearly now,” she said, and only 26 students made the final cut.
As the night came to an end, Minkle announced that the students had a special surprise for Lavallo. “You didn’t think we would let you off that easy, did you?” she joked. The students came out one
