Salem Community St. Joseph’s

submitted by St. Joseph’s Regional Catholic School St. Joseph’s Regional Catholic

School in Salem recently celebrated 50 years as a Catholic School Community. Former teachers, past and present students, parents, and friends all joined together in a liturgy and dessert reception. “As a family grows and changes, so have we,” said Mrs. Ouellette, grade one teacher of 30 years. “We continue to remain a close-knit community and look forward to another 50 years of making memories together.”

Patriot Students signed a giant

birthday card, enjoyed viewing pictures, and socialized with each other. It was a wonderful celebration of past, present, and future success.

by Robyn Hatch The 1st Annual Greater Salem New Hampshire Rotary Club Oktoberfest was held last weekend in a torrent of rain and freezing winds. This event was broken down into two nights. On Friday, the Oberlaender Hofbrau Band performed, complete with authentic German music and instruments. Even with the few people present, this band proved to be a big hit.

Day two had to deal with intense winds and cold, frigid air. The crowd was sparse until people decided to stop by for a tasty German lunch. The Chris White Band entertained while everyone enjoyed the German food. The RE/MAX Tethered Hot Air Balloon Rides had to be postponed due to the bad weather. The car show took place on the Upper Loft with few in attendance. Face painting and balloons

Beer table

were available for the kids, and 1110 AM WCCM put on a live remote broadcast. The 1st Annual Greater Salem NH Rotary Club Oktoberfest had some major sponsors that need to be recognized. Platinum Sponsors: Salem Community

Hesser College Honors Fallen Officer in New Equipment Dedication

Fire Safety Program for

Children Launched by Santo Insurance Agency

by Robyn Hatch

Hesser College in Salem recently hosted a dedication ceremony for fallen officer Theodore “Ted” Anagnos.

Hesser College and local law

enforcement got together to introduce a new Firearms Training Simulator (FATS) at the Salem campus, and dedicated it to the late Officer Theodore Anagnos from the Salem Police Department. Anagnos was out jogging in

August 2001 when he was struck and killed by Thomas Zazzara, a suspected drug dealer, who was attempting to outrun the police. Anagnos’ death was felt throughout the Seabrook, Fremont, and Epping communities, where he also worked as a police officer.

The FATS is designed to train Criminal Justice students in decision-making when using a firearm. The simulator walks students through various scenarios that a law enforcement official could encounter while on the job. The FATS will help students develop their critical thinking tactical and problem skills. Following dedication, the campus demonstrated the capabilities of the new FATS. Campus facility and staff were also available to answer any questions regarding the new simulator and Hesser’s Criminal Justice pFirerogram.

Hesser students and local law

enforcement were in attendance to dedicate this special piece of equipment.

Comments from Shawn Patten, Deputy Chief of Police

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.
