On Saturday, July 15th Salem Willows will host the "Black Picnic". This picnic, the oldest picnic, began in 1741 as a humble gathering for 26 slaves who met for a day long celebration on their day off along the Saugus River in Lynn. MAMLEO was introduced to this great event last year and has been asked to return again. We thank Ms. Doreen Wade for her efforts in keeping this alive for generations to come.
