The Community Events Committee sponsors activities, projects, and presentations to bring our community together.
The Wonders of Winter
The Salisbury Association celebrated Salisbury Winter Sports Association and the town’s unique 94-year ski jumping tradition. The Wonders of Winter was a major exhibition of historic and contemporary winter sports art on view at six downtown Salisbury locations. Sales benefitted both organizations.
The annual Fourth of July picnic at the Town Grove and Victorian Christmas concert are beloved traditions.
Lectures on a variety of topics, including the popular Era of Elegance series, are held at the Scoville Memorial Library many Saturdays at 4 p.m. The Salisbury Forum was actually launched as part of this SA function.
Trees and Town Beautification
The community events committee maintains the Academy Park between the Academy Building and the Post Office, and contributes to town beautification efforts. For many years, it has planted and maintained trees, especially street trees, throughout the town.
SA’s Toulmin Fund provides funding for projects that maintain and improve the Town Grove, such as dock construction, tree work and other special projects.
The Community Events Committee arranges art exhibits at the Academy Building, featuring works by children and established artists.
Supporting Our Youth
The Community Events Committee sponsors jobs for young people through the town.
By popular demand, the Community Events Committee is working on updating the 2010 volunteer directory that helps bring volunteers and organizations together for the benefit of our community.
