Salem senior center to raise fees for nonresidents
“You can’t compare our senior center to anywhere else within a 40-mile radius,” Hargreaves said. “That’s why people keep coming here from Methuen and Lawrence, from Hampstead and Plaistow. We have more programs, we have a brand new dance floor. … Nobody’s gong to gripe about (the fees) and people are going to still keep coming.”
“Are we getting to the point where we’d need to ration back on people from out of town?” he asked.
As it stands now, Salem residents are given first priority when it comes to events and activities with a waiting list.
Several weeks ago, when a new exercise program was immediately filled with Salem seniors, around 40 nonresidents were placed on a waiting list, she said.
