SALEM – Salem Central School recently held a bike rodeo for 3rd and 4th grade stu-
dents. When spring comes, children love to be outside and bicycles come out of stor-
age. The goal is to educate young riders about the rules that will assist them in riding

the helmet law, the rules that bicyclists have to follow and hand signals bicyclist use.                       Pictured is an interior photo of the church circa 1900.

SALEM – June is shaping up to be a month of great activity for the Courthouse Community Center in Salem. Court-
house Community Garden workers under the direction of Dottie Schneider, Nancy Higby and Gail Bearup have been
hard at work preparing the garden for planting. Garden volunteer and Cornell graduate in plant science, Janet Britt,
started some the seeds which were donated by Bentley Seeds and High Mowing Seeds, in her greenhouse. Other
seeds were started by Mr. Hamilton, interim Salem Central High School agricultural teacher, and his students. The
garden is located on land adjacent to the CCC which is on loan by Woody Hill Farm. This amazing initiative provides
a place for adults and children to learn about gardening, marketing and giving back to the community. Produce grown
in the garden will be harvested and donated to the Salem Food Pantry and sold at the local farmers’ market. Planting
day on Friday, June 4th, offered the students of the Salem Central Elementary School the opportunity to plant the
seedlings and learn basic gardening skills. On hand to witness the enthusiastic children were Senator Betty Little,
Assemblyman Tony Jordan, Salem Town Supervisor Seth Pitts, Salem Central School Superintendent Dr. Kerri
Piemme, CCC Executive Director Donna Farringer and many area residents. Planting under a deep blue summer sky,
