After 38 years of continued service for Rollinsford, Chief Robert “Bob” Ducharme is retiring as of December 31st! Starting in 1982 when he became a part-time officer, he quickly moved into a full-time position in 1986, and has served as Chief since 1992.Throughout those years has been an active member of our community including spearheading the Police Benevolent Association drive for holiday food baskets for needy residents.
The Town would like to take this opportunity to show our appreciation for his dedicated service and we need your help.We would love to host you all in person and allow you the opportunity to say your fond farewells, but current social distancing requirements make that difficult.
Yet there is a way to celebrate and it takes each of you. We hope you will help Bob remember his time with us and remember it fondly. Maybe you could write him a letter recounting a story of a time he helped you. Perhaps you and he shared a funny moment together. So many things have happened over those years. If you remember things, even as a bystander, now is the time to compliment his service. Most of us were part of his time here in some way, even if it was just a simple “hello” at the Post Office. It could even be a thank-you for that warning he gave you when he pulled you when he could have given you a ticket. Let’s get creative!
We will compile the submissions and put them into a nice book to present to him that he can enjoy for years to come.
Help us make this moment special for him. You can mail them to the Town Hall (PO Box 309,) or put them in the drop box at the Town Hall. We ask that you have your submissions in by Tuesday, January 19th.
