Charles Trevor McMahon Appreciation Award Presented to Richard Rafferty
The McMahons were
motivated to institute this award, in their son’s name, to help recognize and encourage outstanding service by educational assistants in the Windham school district. The McMahon’s son, Charlie,
who is now 23 years old, is a special needs young man with significant challenges who was given the opportunity to prosper in an inclusive school environment. This award was inspired by all the wonderful instructional assistants that Charlie has had throughout his classroom experiences in the Windham Schools. Charlie is presently a volunteer at Salem High School along with his assistant. This year’s recipient, Richard

submitted by Mary Reese In an effort to reach local children with
lifesaving tips, Santo Insurance Agency launched their first annual Fire Safety Program in local pre- schools and kindergartens. The children received red plastic fire hats, worksheets, and coloring papers at local kindergartens and pre-schools in conjunction with The Hartford Group. Educating children in this age group on how to be safe in the event of a fire emergency is a priority for both businesses. The Santo Insurance agency was hosted by the children at Growing Years in Methuen, MA, and Littleville, Patsy’s House, Wonder Years, and the Salem Boys & Girls Club
in Salem. Employees of the agency read the children a story titled Don’t Invite a Dragon to Tea, a fire safety story for children (and dragons) written by Jean E. Pendziwol. The story aided in helping the children to learn what to do in case of a fire in their homes. The program reviewed “stop, drop, and roll,” “never go back in a burning house,” and “have a meeting place.” The children happily reviewed all the fire safety rules that they have been working on throughout the month of October and were thrilled with their fire hats and papers. Santo Insurance is proud to sponsor this local program.
