Vehicle Parade Being Held To Honor Five AE/MS Retirees

Save the date, tell everyone, and please participate

By Jennifer Bent

On Friday, June 12, there will be a vehicle parade honoring five beloved professionals who are retiring from Andover Elementary/Middle School at the end of this term.

All vehicles will assemble at Proctor Academy’s dining hall (Field House/Hockey rink) parking lot between 5:30 and 5:55 PM. We encourage you to decorate your vehicle; honking horns and megaphones are appreciated. But please stay in your vehicle at all times!

At 6 PM sharp, the parade will go down Main Street and around the AE/MS building. Ms. Slayton, Mrs. Parenteau, Mrs. Stanhope, Mrs. Tiede, and Mrs. Gagne will be standing (six feet apart) with memory buckets near them. As cars pass by, one person from each vehicle can step out if they have a picture, card, written memory, gift, etc. to put into the bucket.

There will also be a separate bucket in honor of Mr. Stewart, our beloved janitor who passed away unexpectedly several months before his retirement. These donations will be used to plant a tree in his honor.

Rain date for the parade will be Friday, June 19.
