The current round of restoration has been completed, and we are very pleased with the results.  While the end result may not be as visible as past efforts, it is none the less very important to the overall restoration strategy in which we are endeavoring to “seal the envelope” of the Courthouse.  With this important step in place, we are ready for the next step in the process.

Since you were unable to climb to the roof with us, these photos will give you an idea of just what was accomplished!

SAVE DISPATCHER NEEDED: The Salem Area Van Endeavor (SAVE) is seeking a kind volunteer to assist as the dispatcher for our van.  You would be responsible for contacting the riders on Monday (for Tuesday’s run) and Wednesday (for Thursday’s run) and then notifying the drivers.
