5 Things to Start the Day: March 29
Here are five tidbits from around town to start your morning.
- Congratulations to Creative Salem. This new addition to downtown Salem will be celebrating its grand opening this evening. Learn more in the flyer attached to this article.
- Here's some cool news for those who take pride in our history. Yesterday, Congressman John Tierney's bill, which aims to acknowledge Salem as the birthplace of the National Guard, passed the House 413 to 6. To learn more, click here.
- How cool would it be to bring CSI to Salem? Well, it's happening this summer. Salem Parks, Recreation and Community Services is teaming up with the Salem Police Department to teach kids about criminal investigations and forensics. Click here to learn more. If your little one is interested, we recommend you sign up sooner than later. Registration is limited to 24, and we're pretty sure this super-cool program will fill up fast!
- Remember that crazy Marchstache competition we covered last year? Well, it's happening again. If you don't have Friday plans, be sure to head to Gulu this Friday at 8 p.m. It's okay if your mustache isn't real — anything goes at this fun event.
- We've got to give a shout out to our friends at Danvers Patch for catching Danvers in the pop culture spotlight. Apparently, that poor family that got stuck in the corn maze last year has already made it to "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?," and a Patch reader snagged a photo. If you catch Salem on a show or in the national spotlight, let us know or send a photo. It's always fun to see where we end up. For instance, we've heard a trip to the Witch City has been a "Wheel of Fortune prize" on occasion.
