August 18, 2011
Salem Daily News: Mayor Kim Driscoll doesn’t normally hoist a bottle of Champagne during the workday, but she made an exception yesterday to christen a $45,000 boat donated to Sail Salem, a community boating program.
“I can’t thank you enough,” the mayor told 89-year-old Thomas Brown Jr., after smashing the bottle on the 34-foot Webber Cove powerboat given by the former Marblehead resident. “The kids in Salem are really grateful.”
