The Seabrook Board of Selectmen voted to accept an very generous equipment donation from Chartwell, the owners of Rockingham Village, who donated two Lucus Cor automatic CPR machines worth over $15,000 each, along with a new radio box system that will vastly improve information flowing to the Department upon the sounding of an alarm. The entire donation totaled over $82,000 and the Board of Selectmen expressed their appreciation to Chartwell for this very generous donation to Seabrook Fire. Congrats to Chief William Edwards for all of his work on this project.

On Friday April 20, 2018 the Seabrook Elementary School unveiled four Mosaics that students and Artist Lizz Van Saun created to help celebrate the 250th anniversary of the Town of Seabrook. What a great program it was, with wonderful music and the unveiling of the four mosaics. Thanks to the School Board, Principal Stephanie Lafreniere, Assistant Principal Mark Dangora, and Music Teacher Katrina O’Brien for a wonderful event. Members of the Historical Commission, the Anniversary Committee, and the Board of Selectmen were on hand to enjoy the mosaics, and the entire program.
Seabrook lost a terrific person who impacted our community for many years as a Police Officer, Jim Cawley. Jim was a terrific person who we lost far too soon. Officer Jim Cawley was brought home to Seabrook, and his procession passed Seabrook Town Hall, the Seabrook Fire Department, and the Seabrook DPW. That procession had throngs of his friends and co-workers standing out of respect, and affection for Jim personally. Thanks to Fire Chief William Edwards, DPW Manager John Starkey, and Police Chief Gallagher and Lt. Kevin Gelineau for bringing Jim home in such a nice way. The Seabrook Board of Selectmen joined in making this statement to the media on Officer Cawley.
“Today’s display of respect and affection for him is indicative of the esteem in which he was held by his fellow police officers, firefighters and the many town workers who knew and admired him,”
The Seabrook Board of Selectmen were on hand Friday April 13, 2018 to help the Brown family to cut the ribbon as they re-opened Brown’s Lobster Pound after rebuilding the facility following a major fire. Brown’s Lobster Pound has been a Seabrook institution for decades, and the Brown family was determined to rebuild this great destination point despite the great challenges, and expense, of the effort. Congratulations to Mr. Bruce Brown and the entire family for the successful grand opening, which has produced a beautiful and modern facility designed to serve the massive customer base of Brown’s for many years to come. Thanks to Executive Councilor Russell Prescott for his attendance, and his kind words. Thanks to Governor Sununu, who sent a citation celebrating the re-opening.
The Board of Selectmen recognized and honored retiring Seabrook Police Officer Chet Felch for his long and distinguished career at yesterdays Board meeting. Congratulations and best wishes to Chet as he embarks upon a well deserved retirement.
