The second annual Salem Summer Send-Off will be held this coming Saturday from 1-5 p.m., with a wide variety of events on tap to keep those who attend entertained for the entire afternoon.
The annual community fundraiser, which is organized by the Salem Home & School Association, will include free games, activities, and entertainment throughout the afternoon aimed at celebrating the local school.
Popular with the younger crowd last year, various big rigs and emergency services vehicles will once again be on display.
Other activities will include: planting rain garden seeds, browsing the used book sale, hand painting ‘buddy benches’, bidding on silent auction items and much, much, more.
New this year is the local community Not-for-Profit Expo. OpenSky Co-operative, EOS Eco-energy, the Sackville Community Garden, the Tantramar Family Resource Centre, Struts Gallery, Playschool, Inc., and Daybreak are just a few of the numerous community groups that will be present sharing their stories and what they have planned—for this summer and beyond—for local kids and the community. Mike Fox from Mount Allison University will also be present to give two engaging presentations on what is in store for Salem’s Outdoor Education Program. The Not-for-Profit Expo will run from 2-4 p.m. in the multipurpose room.
Come join the fun this Saturday at 70 Queen’s Road and help the Salem Home & School Association continue to fund field trips and projects throughout the school year—like last fall’s Paint the Playground and this winter’s Open Gym Nights. The Salem Home & School Association’s commitment to every child at Salem Elementary is only bound by the limits of our collective imagination and the investment we are willing to make in their school, its staff and administration.
