A rich Olympic history, on view

SALISBURY — For a small rural town, Salisbury has had a large number of participants in winter and summer Olympics.

This week the Beijing Winter Olympics are in progress and the Salisbury Winter Sports Association Jumpfest is in full swing, an appropriate time for the Salisbury Association to open a new exhibit featuring the town’s own Winter Olympians, specifically the ski jumpers and Nordic skiers (including Roy Sherwood, photo above).

The exhibit is on view Feb. 11-27, at the Salisbury Association, 24 Main St. The building is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be  extended hours during the Jumpfest weekend, Feb.11 to 13, when the exhibition can be seen between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
