Come one, come all!  The North Salem United Methodist Church, North Salem Christian Church, and Emmanuel Baptist Church have all united as one to bring the community a huge Easter egg hunt!  Come enjoy family time together hunting eggs at the North Salem Town Park.  The egg hunt will be for all ages, including adults, and there will also be raffle drawings for all age groups!   There are two entrances to the park, one on SR 75 next to Dollar General, the other on SR 236 by the Eel River Village apartments.  Parking will be available at both entrances, but the park will be closed off for driving through for the safety of all.  Currently, the weather looks to be perfect for an enjoyable spring afternoon with family and friends, but if the forecast changes, an indoor location for this event will be updated here and posted on social media chatter pages.
