Heard Around Town: A Salem High reunion for the ages


Two folks running for City Council, Beth Gerard and David Eppley, are also strapping on leather for the event. Do they know the preliminary election is Tuesday?

In truth, this is a great event that benefits the Salem YMCA.

On Sunday, St. John the Baptist is going all out to produce the best Polish Festival in years.

They have a big band coming from Connecticut, Polish beer and all the pierogis, kapusta and kielbasas you can spell — we mean eat.

If nothing else, come watch the children from the Polish school doing Polish dances. They are great.

Admission is free and everyone is welcome.

Golf tribute

Wayne Alarm, a Lynn business, is holding a golf tournament in memory of Barbara Riley of Salem, who was office manager there for nearly 30 years.

The Sept. 30 event at the Ferncroft Country Club will benefit the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

“By pulling all of our employees and those in local communities together to raise money for cancer research, I feel that Barbara would be truly amazed at how many lives she has touched,” company president Ralph Sevinor said in a statement. “She was never one to like being the center of attention, but she deserves to be recognized and honored for all that she has done.”

For more information, go to or call 781-595-0000, ext. 114.

Pump problem

That was a nasty fire Saturday morning on Perkins Street.

And there was a lot of concern afterward when Deputy Chief Brian Harrington had to order firefighters out of the building due to a malfunctioning pump truck.

As soon as Chief Dave Cody was informed of the problem, he put the truck through a series of tests, which it passed each time.

All of which left everyone scratching their heads.

By hook or crook
