Thank you EMD Serono for thinking of the children of Salem!

Employees of Serono were in Salem on July 12 for a conference and part of their meeting was a scavenger hunt of the city of Salem. They ended the activity by putting together 100 backpacks that included school supplies and a personal note of encouragement written by each employee to a child from our Club. Our members were so excited to receive the backpacks and are grateful to know that many people outside of our community care about them.
