Change can be exciting and fun! Especially when it is a win-win for everyone, and nobody gets the shaft. Of course, not everyone likes change, even if it benefits them. But, that’s part of the growing pains of making Salem even greater than it is!

I hope I am not forgetting anyone, because the list is growing larger by the day!
