Irene Short celebrates her 95th Birthday

Saturday, March 3, 2012

Irene Short invited the community in on Saturday, Feb. 25, as her family held an open house to celebrate her 95th birthday. Short and her husband, Charles, operated Short's Store on the square for decades. "Irene and Charlie" were involved in many community improvement projects over the years, and she is still active and keeps up with what's happening in Salem.
