2019 Salisbury calendar is available for sale

The 2019 Salisbury Calendar, filled with photos of local scenes and submitted by locals who captured them, is back, and for sale for $10 in the Visitors’ Center.

“We did this calendar two years ago, so there was a gap year when we didn’t have one. The community kept asking for it. We felt like we dropped the ball last year so we brought it back for 2019,” said Laura Soper, the city’s Business Development Director.

There are images on the front and back covers, and, for each month, a large and small likeness. Because of the variety and excellence, selecting which to use was difficult, Soper said.

On the cover, there’s an aerial photo of the Salisbury Standpipe and there are also scenes from City Park, the zoo, the city’s first SBY Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K marathon in May and the National Folk Festival in September.

The steeple at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and clouds above it are featured, as well as a Canada goose peeking through tall grass on the Riverwalk, sunrises, sunsets and frozen bushes with lights shining through thick, wet snow.

There were more than 70 submissions.

The city had 250 calendars printed and will continue selling them until they are gone. Proceeds will benefit the city’s general fund.

“This was demand-driven by the city of Salisbury, so they must see some value in this calendar and having us make it,” Soper said. “The pictures are worth framing. I think a lot of them are beautiful.”
