The Holiday Happenings brochure arrived yesterday. We have begun work on the 2012 Salem Guide for publication in February. We survived October's Haunted Happenings, and the wreaths and tree are up for Holiday Happenings.
Salem is a fantastic little city that just keeps ticking. A seaport with a rich, unique history and a modern vibrancy that has made it incredibly desirable for both new residents and new businesses. I'm quite thankful to work here and to have such a rich, dynamic destination to market.
Here are a few other things I am thankful for in this season of gratitude, and year-round:
For the board of directors and marketing committee who provide guidance and insight throughout the year;
For the businesses that work tirelessly to keep the doors open and provide services, goods and entertainment for all of us;
For the organizations with whom we collaborate on promotions and programs that we hope will entertain and entice visitors from near and far, especially those who produce events that make Salem unique;
For the visitors who choose Salem over all of the other destinations - whether it's for a weekend, a day, an evening, a special event or a group tour. I thank all of you for choosing Salem.
And for all of you who read this blog, and allow me to keep you current on what is happening in Salem, I thank you for your time over the past four years.
Happy Thanksgiving to one and all. I hope to see you soon in Salem.
