I would like to say a big thank you to the many volunteers who gave of their time during our recent power outage. Council, Village Staff, Firefighters, EMO, NB Power, businesses, and citizens all pitched in and helped those in need of heat, food and water.
Thank you to the Lion's Club for opening their building as a warming center and the Baptist Church opening their building for showers. Thank you also for all the food that was donated and those who prepared meals.
A big thank you to the Firefighters who were out in the worst of the storm on Tuesday night answering the many calls coming in.
I am sure there were many acts of kindness shown to neighbors and families that we are not aware of and we can be proud we live in a community that always shows compassion when people are in need.
I believe that this emergency will better prepare us for any future weather or disaster emergencies and we can learn from this as to what worked and what we were falling short on.
So again thank you to everyone as it was appreciated by all.

The Salisbury Beautification Committee is excited to announce The Memory Maple and Living Lindens’ Tree Campaign. As part of our 2016 Phase One Concept Plans, the community of Salisbury will have the opportunity to purchase and plant a tree along Douglas Street.
A tree may be planted in memory of a loved one, families may choose to plant a commemorative tree, or businesses may wish to sponsor a tree. The cost to purchase and plant a tree is $500.
We are having this special online auction for one tree which will be planted in front of Salisbury Village Office. The tree will also include a granite memorial plaque which will be placed at the base of the tree. Bidding begins at $750.
All proceeds will go to the Salisbury Beautification Project.
