Tuesday, August 9 The Salem Historical Society will present Steve Closs, who will explore Granite State valor during the American Civil War (1861-1865). He will discuss the involvement, contributions, and heroism of some of New Hampshire’s honored sons
during the most tragic period in our nation’s history. Granite State soldiers were very much involved in some of the most famous battles in that war. There were Medal of Honor winners amongst these New Hampshire soldiers, who also had influence on the preservation of the Union and abolition of slavery. Steve Closs is a New Hampshire Civil War historian and author. He is a resident of New Hampshire and a retired police captain. Steve has been a serious student of the Civil War for over 20 years and lectures on the subject around the state. The meeting is at 7:30 p.m. at the Old Town Hall Museum, 310 Main Street, Salem, and is open to all and free of charge. Light refreshments will be available after the talk. For details, call 893-8882 or 898-0842.

Religious Events ----------
Wednesdays, Now through August 31 Wednesday worship services have returned at the First Congregational Church and are offered through August 31. The summer is a busy time for families with many weekend commitments, often resulting in an attendance decline at area churches. The church has met this challenge by holding this innovative service on Wednesday evenings. This mid-week service makes worship available to those in the community who may be away or unavailable on weekends. Shorts and sandals are welcome. The service begins at 7 p.m. A video series will be offered for children during the service. It is also preceded by a buffet supper at 6 p.m., so families and commuters don’t need to worry about providing a meal that night. The supper is a bargain at $3 per person or $8 per family. All are invited for Wednesday family worship in Fellowship Hall at the First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, located at 15 Lawrence Road, Salem. The church is wheelchair-accessible. For additional information, call 893-3421.
