Center OK’d at Salem church
SALEM — The Planning Board unanimously approved plans for a community center at Pleasant Street United Methodist Church.
The 4,560-square-foot center would provide the church with the additional space it needs for programs, including the food pantry, Pastor Susan Walker said.
The center at 8 Pleasant St. would also serve homeless families as part of the Interfaith Hospitality Network established by Family Promise of Greater Rockingham County.
“We are ready to break ground,” Walker said. “It would be tremendous for the community.”
