Help Salem Main Streets get downtown Salem ready for the holidays. Help is needed:
- Sunday, November 29 from 9 to 11:30am: Ribbon wrapping. Meet at Riley Plaza. One of the coldest and most cheerful volunteer jobs of the year! We will need folks who are ok being out in the cold for at least 2 or 3 hours, some of whom should be comfortable climbing ladders. We also need ladders. We will be focusing primarily on the taller poles on Derby/New Derby, though if we have time and/or I have figured out the logistics, we will continue down Essex Street.
- Monday, November 30 form 5:30 to 8:30pm: Preparing wreaths for hanging. Mack Park. No heavy lifting and minimal dexterity is required, and you do not have to come for the full 3 hours.
- Tuesday, December 1 from 8:30am to noon: Wreath and light install. Meet at Lappin Park. We will be focusing specifically on the Pedestrian Mall to help wrap some fancy new lights around the poles (and possibly the ribbons if we did not do so the day before). We will following the City staff as they hang the wreaths, so exact start time will depend on their availability and will be determined a little closer to the day. Again, we need folks who are ok being out in the cold for at least 2 or 3 hours, some of whom should be comfortable climbing ladders. We also need ladders.
