On Tuesday, November 28th, 2017, the Friends of Greenlawn and the City of Salem had the honor of celebrating the completion of Phase I restoration work on the Dickson Memorial Chapel with an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony. The event was well attended and we thank you all who could come and show your support for this historic endeavor! A big thank you as well to Mayor Kim Driscoll and her staff for helping to make the event such a success!
The Salem News featured the event on their front page the following day (Wednesday, November 29th), so I’ll link that here and let them tell you all about the event:
