New "Entering North Salem" signs have been installed.  We'll never understand what motivates them, but vandals damaged and totally destroyed four of our gateway signs last year.  All totaled, six of eight signs were down!  We have not been defeated, however. We ordered new and slightly improved signs this spring and they are up!
