The day went out with a Bang! Manchester’s 150th Anniversary Celebration concluded after a full day of activities with a spectacular fireworks display over Harry Wright Lake in Whiting on June 28th. There was fun for the young and the young-at-heart. After the sand castle, water balloon and hula hoop contests, there were free raffles, a magic show, kayak races, karate demo and scavenger hunt. Delicious barbecue food, ice cream and craft vendors were set along the edge of the scenic Harry Wright Lake. Among the highlights of the day was Mayor Palmer in the dunk tank and the Men’s Nicest Legs competition. Music and dancing continued until dark. Local sponsors and gift donors helped to make the special celebration a huge success.  Thank you to all who helped make the day possible.

The lab is equipped with Chromebooks, lab tables, desks, projector, portable pool, and SeaPerch ROV kits so students can work safely and efficiently in a space that simulates an engineering workshop.

Manchester Youth Earns Eagle Scout Rank

Eagle Scout

At a Court of Honor on May 30th , Manchester’s Kevin Bien was awarded the highest rank in Scouting, the Eagle Scout. Mayor Ken Palmer presented a Proclamation and a silver eagle coin to commemorate the day at the Manchester Volunteer Fire House. Kevin joins the ranks of an elite group of scouts who have achieved this prestigious rank. But much more than that, it takes a lot of work to get to this position. A scout has to earn 21 merit badges and then spearhead a community service project that he organizes and manages, from start to finish. Mayor Palmer said, “it was an honor to recognize the achievements of one of Manchester’s youngest citizens.”
