Seekonk Memorial to Honor Selectmen
Town officials are planning a memorial to honor past members of the Board of Selectmen. The discussion was held following the news that former selectman Dave Parker had passed away on August 11.
Parker served three terms on the Board of Selectmen. He also served as Town Moderator for 12 years and was one of the founders of the Save A Pet Society.
Selectman David Andrade proposed using the land between Town Hall and the new animal shelter for the memorial, which would feature the names of all the former members of the board. “I think it’s an excellent idea,” said selectman David Viera, lamenting the fact that once selectmen leave the board, they are often forgotten by residents despite their contributions to the town.
Selectmen will have another discussion on the memorial at their Wednesday meeting.
