In December Mayor Bower along with department heads, city council members, and other city employees, were on hand for a “question and answer” session held at the Salem/Washington County Senior Citizen’s Center. Breakfast was enjoyed by those who attended the event and door prizes were given away. Santa was even present for those who had a special Christmas request from him. Numerous questions were asked about a variety of City issues. The purpose of these events is to reach out to the seniors in the community in an effort allowing them to voice opinions and comments, as well as asking questions.
