Meet Marcia, Salem's Unsung Heroine.....


Meet Marcia Lambert, one of 100 Unsung Heroines in Massachusetts.

The Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women proudly announced its 100 Unsung Heroines of 2010. These women come from cities and towns across the Commonwealth and will be recognized for their outstanding contributions to their organizations and communities in a ceremony on Wednesday, May 19, 2010 from 1-4 p.m. at the State House in Boston.
Congratulations Marcia.......
As chairwoman of Salem's Beautification Committee this year, Marcia was nominated by our Mayor, Kim Driscoll for her many years of community service, not only in her South Salem neighborhood, but for all her contributions Citywide over decades.
Today, she and her team have organized a plant sale on the Common. All proceeds will help her committee fund the many projects planned to beautify Salem; most noticeably will be the traffic islands throughout the city, the Essex Street pedestrian mall, and much, much, more. This committee has certainly flourished since it's beginning 5 years ago and it's success has become infectious. If you happen to be one of the winners of their citywide window box contest, you're a celebrity......

The sale is a two day event. So if you didn't get there today, go tomorrow between 11am-2pm, and say hello to Marcia while you are there. We got our plants today for the B&B; three lovely hanging plants for the back yard and deck area...... Great prices to.

Congratulations Marcia! As a visitor of Salem on what may be my 12th or 13th visit (lost count), I want to say thank you for making the City so beautiful!! All you do is a big part of what made my daughter and I fall in love with Salem.

Marcia is cool......maybe we'll have her over when you come to visit in July, if she isn't so busy, here, there, and down the Cape. (Cape Cod for those unfamiliar.)
