Friends of the Library Recognizes Dedicated Service of Volunteers


submitted by Stephanie Wimmer, FLOW The Friends of the Library of Windham


(FLOW) recognized two outstanding volunteers at a celebratory brunch last week. Each year, the Friends gather to thank current Board members for their commitment to, and support for, the Nesmith Library, and to say farewell to outgoing Board members. The event is also an opportunity to celebrate successes and recognize those volunteers who make exceptional contributions to our community. Those honored for their service to the Nesmith Library, FLOW, and the Windham Community included Lisa Brennan and Beverly Donovan. Friends’ President Jennifer Simmons and Library Director Carl Heidenblad honored both award recipients with plaques and words of gratitude. The Marjorie Carter Award, established


in 1977, recognizes a FLOW Board member who has put forth a diligent effort on behalf of the Friends and has shown an outstanding commitment to the Library and its community. This year, the Marjorie Carter Ward was presented to Lisa Brennan. Lisa has dedicated numerous hours to the Friends. She served on the Friends Board for several years as Book Fair Chair, and is responsible for first establishing FLOW’s Winter Book Fair. After “retiring” from the Book Fair, she then served as the Board’s secretary. The Friends Board said farewell to Lisa, as she is stepping down from the Board this year. She was given a yellow rose for each year of service to the Friends, and will be missed. The Carl Heidenblad, Murray Levin,

necessarily a FLOW Board member, but who has given tremendous support and/or performed many services for the Nesmith Library and the Windham community. This year, the award was given to Beverly Donovan. Bev has and continues to make a mark on the community of Windham. She is a former School Board member who worked tirelessly to ensure that students in Windham had their own high school. Bev is a founding and current Board member for the Windham Endowment for Community Advancement, and has held the position of “Grill Chairperson” at FLOW’s annual Strawberry Festival for many years. Last month, Bev was honored by the Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce with a Hidden Jewel award.

Special Award for 20 Years of Service


submitted by Searles Castle at Windham Sister Josette Parisi, Manager of Searles Castle, honored


Veronica Flynn Hewitt for her 20 years of service as Director of Volunteers at Searles Castle. “Roni,” as she is known, scheduled over 500 volunteers for the annual Christmas Floral Showcase that was held for 15 years. Although the Christmas Floral Showcase is no longer an annual event, Roni is still responsible for scheduling volunteers for other activities held at the castle, such as the annual Open House, the Piano Concert, the Chairpersons’ Socials, and other planned activities. Roni is a resident of Windham. She has been assisted by 24 chairpersons who, in turn, solicit volunteers that are to be scheduled for events. Sister Josette states that with Roni’s assistance, the activities have been successfully coordinated. She is well deserving of this tribute.

Considering the stagnant state of the overall economy, school administrators in Windham are proposing what they call an essentially “bare-bones budget” for the 2011-2012 school year. There are a few extra items, however, that they are asking School Board members to at least consider. While four additional teachers are included on the “wish list,” school administrators are asking that only two of the four be hired. At the top of the administrative “priority list” is an additional second-


grade teacher at Golden Brook School. The purpose of adding an additional teacher at this grade level would be to reduce class sizes. The suggested salary and benefits for this teacher totals a first-year cost of $88,610 (Master’s Degree Step 7). Second on the priority list is a new Humanities teacher for

Windham High School; again with a recommended Masters Degree Step 7 level. Third is a new fourth grade teacher at Windham Center School (Master’s Degree Step 7). The reason for the request is to reduce the class size for all fourth grades. Finally, at the bottom of the priority list is hiring a district-wide case manager using Federal funding. The person recommended for this job also comes with a Masters Degree Step 7 level and related salary/benefits of $88,610. School Board members are also being asked to consider a general supply increase for all four Windham schools in the amount of $15 per student. This would translate into an additional $8,745 for Golden Brook School, $10,095 more for Windham Center School, an extra $9,330 for Windham Middle School, and an increase of $10,770 for Windham High School. The total for all four schools for the additional supplies is $38,940. Windham Middle School Principal Dan Moulas is also asking that a new athletic program be initiated for students in grades six through eight. Moulas is proposing that both a boys’ and girls’ lacrosse program be implemented next year. “There is a growing interest in lacrosse for both boys and girls in Windham. It’s a growing trend,” he said. There is already a lacrosse team at Windham High School. The proposed cost of fielding both a boys’ and a girls’ lacrosse team totals $14,400. Moulas said he believes there are enough interested students at Windham Middle School to have sufficient numbers to field both teams next year. He also said he doesn’t feel lacrosse will interfere with other traditional spring sports programs. As the budget process continues over the next couple of months, School Board members will be considering all requests, as they work toward coming up with a bottom-line budget that they feel taxpayers can afford.
