We want you to have one day when parking on Washington Street in Salem is a pleasure—no rooting around for coins in the bottom of your purse or pocket, no running outside frantic, mid-conversation, to feed the meter.
Salem Patch has paid for dozens of parking meters on Washington Street for Saturday, Nov. 24, 2012, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
However, keep in mind, the regular time limits will still be applied to ALL meters.
Staff, including Local Editor Owen Boss, North Shore Assistant Regional Editor Chris Helms, and others will be stationed along the route greeting and meeting you. Just look for our green Patch T-shirts and meter covers!
We'll be handing out Patch swag—pens, water bottles, ice scrapers, hand warmers and more—and letting you know about our mission and looking for your input: comments, criticisms and suggestions.
If you haven't already, you can also sign up to get the daily Salem Patch newsletter.
Do us a favor and share the news with your friends and family who live and work in Salem!
