Work is already underway for our 47th Annual Founders' Day Dinner on Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Once again it will be held at the beautiful Salem Community Center. Doors open at 5:00, catered dinner served at 6:00, and program beginning at 7:00. Winners will be announced for the Chinese Auction, the 2017 Citizens of Honor will be toasted, followed by 1940's musical entertainment (to be announced).

Founders' Day is the kick off for the 70th Anniversary of the Salem Historical Society,
founded July 29, 1947. We will feature those FABULOUS 1940's in style!

Please mark that date on your calendar now. Since this event usually sells out quickly,
reservations are a must.  They may be made by calling the Historical Society at 330-337-8514. Don't miss this wonderful yearly event, and this year we have even more to celebrate.
