SALEM CHAMBER LUNCHEON………………………..
Jed Casburn, representative of YMCA Southwest Illinois was the guest speaker at the October Chamber Luncheon. Casburn provided an interesting report of the efforts to provide new programs and activities for Salem area youth. Casburn noted that it has taken time to get the word out as to the variety of interesting programs now available but can now see the growth taking place. Flag football is an example of growth, last year 55 participated… in the program. This year cheerleading was added and the number of participants jumped to 90. Some of the activities included boys and girls volleyball, Karate, a trip to Busch Stadium, visits to the Salem Aquatics Center and a number of special programs at the Salem High School. Based on the increase in interest, Casburn expects each program and each year will see continued growth. He also commended the community on the support received and the number of volunteers involved.
