Please join us on Saturday, April 6 for FWB’s Annual Meeting to recognize FWB’s “Friend of the Year” and “Spirit” recipient. We will also acknowledge several local businesses and groups that have contributed to fulfilling the mission of FWB. Massachusetts Beaches and Coastal Commission will provide the speaker, and we will have Election of Officers. We would love to have YOU become more involved in the workings of FWB such as cleanups, Kids’ Fest, and other family friendly events. It is not a huge commitment of time, and we would welcome new ideas, suggestions and perspectives.

Having served a distinguished 10 year career as flagship of the US Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean and the Second Fleet in the Atlantic, the USS Salem served as host to such notables as the US Ambassador to Spain, John D. Lodge; the Honorable Thomas S. Gates, Undersecretary of the Navy; Admiral Arleigh A. Burke, USN, Chief of Naval Operations; the Shah of Iran; the President of Lebanon and the King and Queen of Greece. Although Salem never fired her mighty guns in anger, her very presence served as a stimulus for peace during those troubled times that came to be called the Cold War.
