We are pleased to offer a unique opportunity to all Salem parents and students. Tomorrow, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., under a large tent behind the Community Health Center at 47 Congress St., representatives from the Salem Public Schools and many community-based organizations will provide information and answer questions about summer programs available to students of all ages.
