Book signing planned at gift shop

Drive-thru event reset for Friday

SALEM – New Day Recovery and its sister company On Demand Counseling (ODC), are working together with the Columbiana County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board (CCMHRSB) and Help Network of Northeast Ohio to organize multiple community “drive-thru” outreach events. The goal of these special events is to cultivate collaboration, educate the public and provide services to our community.

After two previous successful outreach events in East Liverpool and Lisbon, the third and final outreach event was rescheduled due to weather and will now be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday at Centennial Park in Salem. The Community Outreach Resource Event will provide resource information, peer support services, hygiene products, clothing items and more to residents and participants in need.

This outreach event will be conducted as a drive-thru where participating agencies organize their own tents and tables to display company materials, resources, and giveaways. Volunteers and participants are required to follow COVID-19 health guidelines including, but not limited to face coverings, temperature checks, social distancing and sanitization.

Downtown Dining Experience revamped

SALEM– With the need of assistance greater than ever and local restaurants being impacted by COVID-19, the Salem Area Chamber of Commerce and United Way of Northern Columbiana County are continuing their partnership by replacing the Downtown Dining Experience with the Salem Dining Card. In a normal year, the Downtown Dining Experience usually held on the third Tuesday in September featured a series of stops at local restaurants and businesses treating guests to delicious dishes, networking and fundraising. However, based upon recommendations from the Salem City Health Department, the Downtown Dining Experience was canceled. To still fulfill the mission of the event, the Salem Dining Cards were created.

Instead of one night of tasting great local cuisine, card holders can receive a $50 savings by using the cards through Dec. 31 at 13 participating locations. The participating restaurants are: Back Home Market @ Cafe at the Supplement Station, BB Rooners, Coaches Burger Bar, DeRienzo’s Italian Foods, Ezio’s Restaurant, Fernengels Tavern, Giant Eagle, Heggy’s, Jalisco’s Mexican Restaurant, LiB’s Market, Raymond’s Ice Cream Parlor & Restaurant, Ricky’s English Pub and The Foundry. The cards are $20 each and the offers are valid for a one time use at each location. Discounts available are free appetizers with purchase of entree, free dessert with purchase of entree, buy one/get one half off, free ice cream with purchase of lunch special, 10% savings, buy one sub/get one free, and much, much more.

Proceeds from the Salem Dining Cards benefit the agencies of the United Way of Northern Columbiana County; A.I.D. Inc. (Action, Information, Direction); America Red Cross; Boy Scouts of America Buckeye Council; Camp Fire Tayanoka; Catholic Charities Regional Agency; Christians’ Concern of Leetonia; Columbiana Meals on Wheels; Family & Community Services of Columbiana County; Family Recovery Center; Girls Scouts of North East Ohio; Help Network of Northeast Ohio; Project MKC; Quota International of Salem Inc., Speech and Hearing; Resources For Parents; Retired Senior Volunteer Program; Salem Area Visiting Nurse Association; Salem Worlds War Memorial; The Salvation Army-Salem Corps; The Salvation Army-Northern Columbiana County Service Units and Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley.

United Way’s mission is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities to advance the common good. Area residents can help United Way achieve their mission while also patronizing local restaurants who have been impacted by COVID by purchasing the Salem Dining Card. Cards can be purchased at the Salem Area Chamber of Commerce, 210 E. State St.
