Visitors from Japan

There is a great group of students and teachers here from Ota, Salem’s sister city in Japan.

This is the 20th anniversary of the first student trip in this remarkable exchange, which former Salem teacher Peter Dolan headed for years.

Connie Arlander organized the current visit, which ends Sunday.

Over the years, a lot of Salem residents have made the trip to Japan or served as host families for the visitors from faraway Ota.

It’s programs like this that are probably the path to world peace.

A great cause

Good luck to all the Salem residents riding in the Pan-Mass Challenge this weekend.

This will be the 23rd ride for state Rep. John Keenan, who is being joined by his brother, Dan, from California.
