ALERTS: The tax rate and tax bills have been slightly delayed as we work through the process without an assessor. The rate setting is now with the State DRA, and we are hopeful that they will approve a rate in the near future
What a great Halloween event Friday evening, hosted by the Seabrook Recreation Department and the Seabrook Adventure Zone. Very big thanks to Recreation Director Katie Duffey and Forrest Carter Jr and all the staff for their hard work! A very great, and scary, haunted house, and lots of other fun for many, many kids. Promoting after school activities for our children has to be one of the most important things we do, and we are grateful for the work at our Recreation Department, and through the Seabrook Adventure Zone.
The Seabrook Board of Selectmen joined Recreation Director Katie Duffey and the Seabrook Firefighters union, and Fire Chief Bill Edwards, as the new scoreboard and scorers table at the Recreation Center was unveiled. The Seabrook professional firefighters contributed 50% of the cost of the purchase, and I join the Board in thanking them for their generosity. Great job by Director Katie Duffey and the Recreation staff as well.
Chris Herren comes to Seabrook today, talking to our students at noon, and to the community tonight.

Thanks to Katie for bringing in a great event, and for coming in to do the video.
I am looking forward to a visit to Seabrook by Chris Herren, speaking to our kids about drug addiction, and giving them lessons drawn from his very significant life story.

On Friday April 22, 2016 the Seabrook Recreation Department hosted a “Coffee with a Cop,” which featured Police Chief Michael Gallagher. It was a great chance for the Chief to interact with our residents, answer questions, and take note of issues needing attention. Thanks to the Board of Selectmen, recreation Director Katie Duffey, and Police Chief Michael Gallagher for participating in a great program.
The Seabrook Recreation Department has activated online registration, which will allow for program registration, membership sign up, and direct program sign ups, with the ability to make payments, right from the comfort of your home. Check out the web site at www.SeabrookRec.com I had the pleasure of going down to the Recreation Department and using the system as it opened for business on April 6. Let us know what you think. Thank you to Recreation Director Katie Duffey, IT Director Brian Murphy, and Treasurer Oliver Carter for all of their hard work to bring this system to Seabrook.
The Seabrook Board of Selectmen have adopted a policy governing how our Recreation Department will conduct background checks for those volunteering at the Recreation Department. This policy was written using national recreational best practices by Director Katie Duffey. It is important to have written policies that are clearly understandable and fairly administered. If you have any questions or concerns on this policy please contact the Office of the Town Manager, or our Recreation Director Katie Duffey.
