Volunteers make cities possible. Whether they serve on advisory boards, work on behalf of seniors, provide neighborhood emergency response, or serve in their neighborhood associations, parks or libraries, they help make our community a better place for all. The number of City of Salem volunteers this year totalled in the thousands, while the number of hours contributed totalled well above 100,000.
This year we are once again celebrating our volunteers and their generous gift of time with a Volunteer Recognition Awards event. Join us at Loucks Auditorium on Monday, October 16. Activities start at 5 p.m. You can walk the red carpet, enjoy light appetizers and listen to the music of the Sprague High School Band, before the 6 p.m. awards ceremony.
