Letter: Kudos to Salem volunteers

To the editor:

Congratulations to Destination Salem’s Kate Fox, Mayor Kim Driscoll and the countless local volunteers who put into operation a new Visitors Center, complete with maps, brochures and public restrooms, right in front of the one shuttered by the federal government shutdown. Amidst all of the attention paid to the shutdown’s impact is a great story of how this popular tourist destination has responded during its most popular annual event.

With the creativity and resilience we have come to expect, Salem’s residents and leaders quickly found a way to ensure that the city’s biggest festival, Haunted Happenings, would go forward as planned. By all accounts, this year’s festival was a great success.

North Shore Medical Center is proud to be an active partner of the Salem community in October and all year-round.

Robert Norton, president and CEO
