- Anderson Cooper canceled his Salem State appearance due to personal reasons last night. If you paid for a ticket, your refund should be automatic, or, you may contact the box office by calling 978-542-7555.
- Congrats to the crew at Destination Salem. We hear Kate Fox was on CTNow Morning News chatting about Salem with our neighbors to the south. Check out Kate's appearance here.
- Speaking of Kate's appearance, did you know it's the 20th anniversary of the Salem Witch Trials Memorial? Thanks for the informational tidbit, Kate!
- We were sad to hear Richard E. Swiniuch Sr., 71, died last week. We had a great time meeting Rich at the Salem-Beverly game in November. He had such intriguing stories about Salem. Our thoughts go out to his family.
