Show Some Patriotism
It doesn't really matter what you think of the candidates, you can still celebrate our democracy and show a little patriotism on election day! How about starting your day with an Americano from Front Street Coffeehouse? If you happen to stop by around lunchtime, you can also order the Elvis Club sandwich, it's a delicious combo of meats and veggies. Plus, you can't get much more American than Elvis.
Courtney Harris Heath of Seed Stitch Fine Yarn wants to remind us that there are only 53 more days until Christmas! That means you better get moving on all of those holiday projects.

Remember Milly, the poor lost puppy? Thanks to the hard work of those at the Northeast Animal Shelter and Salem Animal Control Officer Donald Famico, Milly's story has a happy ending. The Salem Police are also working hard to reconnect lots pets with their owners. They now have a place on their webpage where you can post a photo of your lost pet, or of a pet you have found. It's a great free service!
