In honor of the late SSG Edmond Lo, the Second Annual Pasta Night Fundraiser will be held from 5-8 p.m. at the Derry-Salem Elks Lodge in Salem. On June 13, 2009, our country suffered a great loss when SSG Edmond Lo was killed in action while in Iraq supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom. During the first year of fundraising, scholarships were issued to two Salem High School students who met the criteria and exemplified the morals and values of an outstanding citizen. This year, the memorial will be renamed to “The SSG Edmond Lo Memorial Fund” to extend charities and donations to military branches in addition to scholarships. The event will feature great prizes, raffles, and a delicious pasta dinner with beverages and desserts included. Plus, don’t miss your chance to win two behind- first-base Red Sox tickets. Tickets are $10 for adults and children over 10. Children under 10 are free. For more information about the event, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

Saturday, June 25 – Sunday, June 26 The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, to remember loved ones lost, and to fight back against the disease. At Relay For Life of Salem, teams of people camp out on Grant Field at Salem High School and take turns walking or running around a track from Saturday, June 25 at 4 p.m. through Sunday, June 26 at noon. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event, because cancer never sleeps. Relay starts with an inspirational Survivors Lap, when survivors are invited to circle the track together and help everyone celebrate the victories they’ve achieved over cancer. After dark, they will honor people who have been touched by cancer and remember loved ones lost during the Luminaria Ceremony. Candles are lit inside bags filled with sand, each one bearing the name of a person touched by cancer, and participants often walk a lap in silence. Last, there is a Fight Back Ceremony, where they make a personal commitment to save lives by taking up the fight against cancer. At Relay, you can make a difference by signing up online to start your own team, or by simply making a donation. For more information about Relay For Life, visit www.relayforlife.org/salemnh
