Citywide sprucing up...........

Where did everybody go..........

...................................before / after
In Salem, we take clean streets seriously and in April, the city has a "clean sweep" program that is guaranteed to get the whole city spic and span, and just in the nick of time before the visitors flock to our city in large numbers. After a long winter, where sand, debris and remnants of last year's fall leaves pile up and become spring's nasty curbside mess, the city's streetsweeper goes into action and eventually gets to every street in Salem. Of course, the entrance corridors to the City become the first targets of this month long passage to a cleaner Salem and Winter Street 1A, is one of the first. Certainly, most all of us that have been around for a while know the drill and the schedule and have moved the vehicles off the road as instructed. And as usual, there will be a few residents that will be quite puzzled tonight as to where they last parked their cars. Then, the realization will set in and the hunt begins with a call to the police department to find the lot that they have been towed. Although it is well publicized, some just don't pay attention. Fortunately, all our guests are securely parked in our lot......Thanks to Donald, who is the ace parking policeman here.............
And on the weekend it's Green Day.....Salem Recycles
bring it on down........

Wow that is an amazing clean up job!!! Can't wait to see Salem all prettied up in 40 hours - though it is always gorgeous :-) And we really can't wait to see the two cutest people in town!!
