Volunteers to be honored
Salem - posted Mar, 20 2013
SALEM- The Salem Unsung Heroes Awards Committee has selected nine residents to be honored as Unsung Heroes for their years of volunteerism. This honor is bestowed on residents who have quietly given extraordinary amounts of time and talent to community service over many years. Signs at each entrance to the Town of Salem proclaim the town is “Proud of its Volunteers.” The Unsung Heroes program was established in 1989 by the Democratic and Republican Town Committee Chairmen to showcase this pride and to encourage future volunteerism, so vitally important to Salem. Each of these community volunteers will be honored at Salem’s ninth Unsung Heroes Awards Banquet to be held at the Gardner Lake Volunteer Fire Company firehouse on Rt. 354 at 1 p.m., Sunday, April 7. The theme of this event is “Volunteerism the American Way.” Tickets, $25 per person, can be purchased from Linda Parker 860-859-1541 or Sue Spang in the Salem Town Office Building. The following Unsung Heroes will be added to the roll of extraordinary volunteers who have made the Town of Salem such a great place to live: William Belt, David Bingham, Donald Bourdeau, Charlene Clancy, Leeland Cole-Club, Shirley Diamond, Bill Martin, Norman Rabe and Elizabeth Regan.
