Pavilion gone

Dear Editor:

For many years, my family has been enjoying picnics at the pavilion at Salem’s Veteran’s Park, which has recently been taken down.

It is a beautiful and rustic setting right near the river. We have celebrated birthdays there and have enjoyed good meals, all the more tasty because of the relaxed setting and idyllic atmosphere. Our last picnic was a delight. With the weather so unseasonably warm we were able to have a picnic late into October. We laid out our tablecloths and spread out the meal; the dog wended around the table legs hoping something would drop. After every morsel was taken care of, we enjoyed games and music, staying at the pavilion until dusk when we had to leave.

We have always enjoyed this heritage community space, musing about family reunions or church picnics that might have been held there in years gone by.

We had no idea that our last picnic in the pavilion was going to be our last picnic in the pavilion. I hope you can give some coverage about the Salem park pavilion in your newspaper.

I would hate for this place that represents so much to our family and our little community to fade away without any notice.

Cynthia Noel, SALEM
