    “Hi Eileen, just wanted to let you know that Anne moved her elderly mom (with slight dementia) here from FL this past weekend, and her first outing with her group from assisted living at Salemtowne was to the Salem Band concert on Tues night. She loved it! Music seems to touch such a deep chord in so many people, including folks with memory and cognitive impairments.”   —Dave Moffat
