Seabrook Town Notebook

---- — Local senior citizens were honored on Wednesday at Senior Citizen Day at the Seabrook Recreation Center. The 20th year of the event, it’s a time when residents in their golden years can attend a luncheon and enjoy entertainment, while also learning about the services available to them.

The Recreation Department arranged for dozens of exhibitors to attended, including those that specialized in health and living options for the elderly. Running from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the parking lot at Seabrook’s Recreation Center was full, showing the popularity of the annual event.


More than 20 resumes have been received from candidates applying to be considered to be Seabrook’s next permanent town manager.

May 22 is the deadline for submission, after which selectmen will review the resumes and winnow them down to those they hope to interview, before making their choice.


The Seabrook Recreation Department and the Friends of Recreation Seabrook are planning a journey to Fenway Park for a Red Sox game on Saturday, June 8, and invite others to go along.

The seats are in Grandstand 3, and the bus will leave the Seabrook Community Center at 5 p.m. sharp for the 7:15 game. Cost of the game tickets and transportation is $33 for residents and $40 for non-residents.

Red Sox fans are urged to get tickets as soon as possible, for the number of tickets is limited.


Celebrate the Tenth Anniversary of the Winnacunnet High School Adult Education Program at 6 p.m. on June 4, when alumni are invited to attend this year’s adult graduation program at Winnacunnet Community Auditorium.

Graduates of the program are asked to call 603-758-9231 to RSVP as soon as possible.

Winnacunnet is proud of its evening school alumni and would like not only to include them in the anniversary celebration, but also learn how the program has helped their career aspirations.
