Essex Heritage and Friendship Both" Off Line" and a Salem Partnership Program

Essex Heritage...Off Line
I certainly hope that some of the many friends of Essex Heritage have the opportunity to connect with us by reading the posts on this blog. If you do, I am sorry to report that server that helps maintain the e-mail system at Essex Heritage has "crashed". It will take several more days to handle the repairs needed to bring the system "up" again. During that time Essex Heritage staff will not be able to receive or send communications to the region. Please bear with us and we expect that by the end of the week or certainly by the first of next week, we will be "back up" and able to resume normal communications. Thanks for your patience.

Sailing Ship Friendship also "Off Line".

I suspect that you may have already heard that the Friendship has been taken to a port in Maine where major repairs are being undertaken. The ship was in Maine for a normal marine inspection and in the course of that inspection some major damage was discovered. The repairs certainly need to be made, but they have disrupted many summer plans for the ship. An international trip to Nova Scotia, Canada had to be cancelled, as did a trip to Historic Newburyport. Several events at the Salem site have also been effected, and the Park Service has done all it can to communicate the problem and the cancellations. Some programs, for example a summer camp program offered in conjunction with Essex Heritage have gone on using another ship, The Fame, docked at an adjacent wharf. Hopefully by the end of September, Friendshp will be back at her home port in Salem, and visitation can continue through the Fall season.

Salem Partnership Initiative

For many years Essex Heritage has maintained a special relationship with The Salem Partnership. Essex Heritage was originally created as a subsidiary of The Salem Partnership, and as such the work of the "Partnership" has always been of great interest to Essex Heritage. I have attached a copy of an e-mail that was received at our office that highlights one of the primary projects of that organization. That e-mail follows:
