TELL US: Who Makes a Difference in Danvers?

Help showcase people who are doing great things in Danvers with our new feature, Count Us In.

Your neighbor who volunteers at the library, your child’s bus driver, and the Little League coach all may not seem to have much in common at first glance.

But Patch’s new initiative, Count Us In, aspires to bring together all Good Samaritans by highlighting residents who are exemplary at making your community a more positive place.

Whether it is the schools, Senior Center or the local youth sports leagues, there's volunteers taking active roles in the community every day.

Partnering with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care (HPHC), Count Us In aims to illustrate HPHC's values. They believe that “amazing things happen when people work together” and that is why we want to share stories about just that.

If you know someone who exemplifies being a good neighbor, volunteer or teacher—or someone who has simply helped the community in an inspiring way—please tell us about it in the comments section below. We will keep an eye on the conversation and will be writing articles about all of the amazing people and stories you share.

We welcome all great stories coming from great people in the community.

George Saluto spent 10 productive years on the Conservation Commission in Town, then left to pursue an idea that came out of his falling in the water on a con com site visit to the Choate Farm. The farm had an old boardwalk out to the middle of the Wenham Conservation area, while attempting to walk it, the boards broke. The boardwalk was mostly unuseable. George decided to do something about it. George has been heading up a committee for the last 5 years to build what is now known in town as the Swampwalk. The amount of people using this recreational area directly off the Rail Trail is gratifying. George has been the reason this project has been accomplished in what has been a partnership effort with the town, many volunteers, and local business people who have given materials, money, and expertice to this recreational and conservation project. It is on going as we speak, for the next part of the boardwalk to be built is happening now!
