Get ready – the annual Salem City Block Party is returning on Friday, June 7th! This year, get ready for hours of fun, exciting games, and activities right down Market Street.
The Salem Block Party is a great opportunity for families and people of all ages to create memories for a lifetime and learn about all the opportunities the Forman S. Acton Educational Foundation offers! Be sure to stop over to our tent and visit with Foundation staff who will also be on hand to sign up children for the Acorn Fund. While there, you can get a picture with your family at our fun photo booth and check out the group we sponsored again this year, the South Jersey Robotics Club. This year, the LuNaTeCs team has team designed and built a race track with several remote control vehicles that Block Party visitors can operate free of charge! We'll also be sponsoring a free paper helicopter make-and-take activity for children of all ages.
The Acorn Fund invests in college savings accounts for all children living or attending public school in the Salem City. Since April 2016, nearly 900 children have signed up for the Foundation’s Acorn Fund! Don’t miss your opportunity to sign up and start saving for college.
