We invite you to join us for the annual old-fashioned Christmas program on December 14, 2019. There will be horse-drawn wagon rides beginning at 3 p.m. until 4:15. The nativity program begins at 4:30. You are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for the Paynesville Community Center. An offering will be taken for the restoration and upkeep of Salem Church and Cemetery. Refreshments will be served and everyone gets a goodie bag of treats to take home! Alternate date in case of bad weather is December 21. Salem is located 4 miles north of Paynesville at 28547 220th St.
