- A 'Supreme' gift: Not everyone contributed to the SwampWalk with just free labor or materials, George Metaxakis, for example, gave months worth of free lunches to all the volunteers who did the work. Metaxakis is the owner of Supreme Roast Beef & Seafood over on Maple Street. George and Marian Saluto, big proponents and organizers of the Danvers-Wenham SwampWalk project, said they stopped by the shop recently to present Metaxakis with an engraved plaque to show their appreciation of his generosity. The plaque acknowledges Metaxakis' contributions and contains a map of the SwampWalk at the bottom.
- Speaking of generous giving, Danvers resident Geraldine Cosgrove recently received a token of appreciation from the Topsfield Fair for her 25 years of volunteerism in the Home Arts Department.
- Sylvan Street now has a brand new coat of asphalt -- no more bone-jarring potholes to navigate. The new lines, however, have yet to be painted.
- You can now find the bus routes for the new school year on the Danvers Public Schools website here.
- This Saturday, it's the Danvers soccer team and boosters who are offering to wash your car for $5. Proceeds benefit the Danvers High teams. The car wash runs 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. in the Elm Street municipal parking lot across from Town Hall.
