Dillon noted that Salem has one of the larger individual town programs for Special Olympics in the region.
Selectmen presented Gallagher with a certificate of appreciation thanking him not only for the time he has given to the program’s participants, but for the help and inspiration he has been to other volunteers and coaches in the program.
