On December 3, Santa and his elves came to visit North Broadway Crossing for the third consecutive year. Over 200 children enjoyed face painting, a gift from Santa, and thanks to Clix Portrait Studios received a free picture on Santa’s lap. The old fashion visit with Santa was made possible by donations from the merchants at North Broadway Crossing. The children received hot cocoa and cider from Maddie’s Bagel and Eatery, popcorn from Pentucket Bank, cookies from McKinnon’s Market, and Salem Family Resources spent the day decorating cookies and doing crafts with the kids. The day was really a success thanks to the donations taken in by the visitors. The Salem Police Department collected toys for Toys for Tots, Postal Center USA collected donations for troops deployed overseas, North Broadway Crossing collected coats and winter clothes for Lazarus House Ministries, as well as perishable food items for Triumphant Cross’s food pantry, and ADM Epic Building & Remodeling, LLC put together a charity raffle to donate money to the mentioned charities.

Salem Caregivers Celebrates Their Volunteers

submitted by Dick O’Shaughnessy The Greater Salem

Caregivers held its Annual Christmas Volunteer Luncheon last week at their office on Lawrence Road. The Caregiver Board of Directors celebrated the work and dedication of its volunteers and thanked them for the time and effort that they extend to their elderly and disabled neighbors in Salem. Volunteers work closely with many members of the community, often times giving rides to doctors appointments, shopping and visit the homes of people who would otherwise be alone. The clients, their families and the entire Salem Community extend it appreciation to these wonderful volunteer caring people.

Hunting is Safe Compared to Other Activities

Hunting ranks third in safety when compared to 28 other recreational pursuits, ranging from baseball to wrestling. Hunting with firearms has an injury rate of 0.05 percent, which equates to about one injury per 2,000 participants, a safety level bettered only by camping (.01 percent) and billiards (.02 percent). For comparison, golf has an injury rate of 0.16 percent (1 injury per 622 participants), while tackle football topped the list of activities with an injury rate of 5.27 percent (1 injury per 19 participants). Jim Curcuruto, NSSF’s director of industry research and analysis; “Comprehensive hunter education classes that emphasize the basic rules of firearm safety and a culture of hunters helping fellow hunters practice safe firearms handling in the field are responsible for this good record.” To put hunting’s safety standing into perspective, compared to hunting a person is: • 11 times more likely to be injured playing volleyball • 19 times more likely to be injured snowboarding • 25 times more likely to be injured cheerleading or bicycle riding

• 34 times more likely to be injured playing soccer or skateboarding

• 105 more times likely to be injured playing tackle football. Charlie Chalk can be reached at
