SALISBURY — Just as summertime is a great time to create memories, the summer 2024 issue of Salisbury the Magazine, which will hit the stands on Tuesday, provides stories about making memories, capturing them and sharing them with others.

In the story titled, “Spring in his step,” Ben White, a NASCAR journalist, shares the story of his son Aaron White who grew up around racing, and how he has risen through the ranks at Childress Technologies. Photos provided by Sean Meyers, along with some submitted ones, help document the story and the memories along the way.

Susan Shinn Turner’s story, “Coming Together,” tells of the Roueche family reunion that was held last year, with 115 descendants gathering at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, creating a special time for the family to remember. Lots of submitted photos are included with the story providing additional memories for the family to have and share.

The cover story, entitled “Quick on the Draw,” by Brenda Zimmerman with photos by Sean Meyers, tells the story in both words and pictures of caricature artist Eric Melton who captures personalities on portraits. Zimmerman unfolds how his talent was first realized and how through the years that talent advanced and the memories made along the way.
