Salem Sesquicentennial Summary
The 150th Committee will be publishing a book of Salem's history: who formed the church, and why, and how the congregation has grown to be the welcoming place that it is today.
The book will be sold, and the price, to be determined by the number of pages will be announced at a later date.
People can contribute short memory stories about pastors since "Upon This Rock," Salem's history book of 1970, and descendants can contribute short stories about the first founding members. Send by email to Phyllis Johnson at email@example.com or by mail to her at PO Box 525, Sycamore, IL 60178.
