Salem Community Patriot | January 6, 2012 - 5 Seniors Throw Farewell Party for Davey Bouchard Outdoors Charlie Chalk with

Davey Boucher receiving well wishes from a Salem Senior Center member

Patti Drelick saying farewell to Davey Boucher

by Robyn Hatch The Salem Senior Center recently gave a farewell party to one of their most honored and loved “members.” Davey Boucher, a town custodian at the Senior Center, has

been greatly respected by all the senior members because of the constant work he has been doing to help in any way possible. He is so greatly loved to the point where he is almost considered to be a “son” by many. Budget cuts forced the role of custodians in Salem to be changed due to union seniority.

Davey addressing those in attendance Boucher will be greatly missed and

never forgotten. We will always honor the dedication he has put into the Senior Center!

the school in the past. He said the projected elementary school enrollment was 1,439 with a current 1,734 students attending the schools. Haigh currently has 219 students with a projection of only 181 by the 2016-2017 school year. Campbell spoke on costs of the school where over the next 20 years it

will cost $20 million to keep the school open. “We’re going to have empty classrooms five years out if enrollment projections stay true,” he said. The board voted to support a plan that would renovate the three elementary schools, keeping Haigh operational. The renovations will require $21.8 million in funding, money that will have to be borrowed. Campbell was the only one to vote against the renovation.
