The Town of Londonderry is currently seeking a new clerk’s assistant. The position is part-time, but is a full-time responsibility. The assistant helps the three town clerks to provide efficient, effective service to the folk of Londonderry.
This is not a new position, but rather an expected opening in the department. Lisa Drabik, the Assistant Town Manager, said they’re working on “shuffling folks.” She explained that one of the current town clerk assistants, Dawn Nadin, is anticipated to be appointed to Town Tax Collector. The part-time clerk assistant will then move in to fill her position, creating the posted opening.
This year is the hundredth anniversary of the international Lions club, which has been offering people opportunities to give back to their communities since 1917. There are 1.35 million members of the volunteer organization that reside in 206 countries, according to their website. Despite the distance between groups, all branches of the Lions share a common belief: “community is what we make it.”
The Londonderry branch of the club is no different – each year, the Londonderry Lions give back to the community in a myriad of ways, some of which include giving scholarships to local students and aiding the elderly in maintaining their vision and hearing.
The Lions have been in Londonderry for 47 years, and as part of the international organization’s celebratory year, the Lions want to thank the community.
