Salem's Lancaster Fund grant OK'd for Traveling Wall
The town’s Lancaster Fund is disbursed by selectmen to non-profits that benefit Salem.
Last month, the board turned down a Lancaster Fund request for the Salem Family Resources’ Success by Six preschool program. While selectmen praised the program, some members felt the request for tuition assistance funds hewed too closely to being operational expenses for the non-profit.
“A grant of this type is for a special initiative or a special project that benefits the town,” said Selectman James Keller. “This is very much a once-in-a-lifetime situation.”
The wall and its exhibits will be open 24 hours per day during the time it will be in Salem. There will also be a number of special events and ceremonies during the five day period.
