Peterborough, NH- After many years of dedicated service Tedd Petro and Jim Long are both retiring from the Board of Trustees of Scott-Farrar at Peterborough effective at the March 2021 annual meeting.
Tedd Petro served on Scott-Farrar’s Board of Trustees for 9 years. Beginning in 2012, Petro served on the Board for Scott-Farrar’s prior building (The Scott-Farrar Home) and his service extended through Scott-Farrar’s rebuild and reopening of the new community Scott-Farrar at Peterborough in 2016.
“It was an amazing experience to serve with all my fellow board members through the years and watch the growth of the Scott-Farrar community,” explains Petro.
Jim Long joined Scott-Farrar’s Board in 2015, when the Scott-Farrar community was in the middle of construction of the new community. During his 6 years on the board saw the reopening and the growth of the community.
“I am happy to have served six years on the board. It was truly a time of great growth and transitions. Through the vision of current and former board members, Scott-Farrar is not only the beautiful facility we see there today, it’s a community of great residents, employees and board members, serving a vital and growing need in the Monadnock area,” explains Long.
“The Board and the entire Scott-Farrar Community thanks Jim and Tedd with sincere gratitude for their service. Their business and financial insights, together with their dedication, compassion, and old fashioned common sense enhanced our charitable mission and enriched the lives of our residents,” adds Jack Nieskens, Scott-Farrar’s Board of Trustee Chair.
Starting in April there will be three new additions to the board, which include Dr. Rich Frechette and Gail Bleakley. After a year away, Peter LaRoche will be rejoining Scott-Farrar’s Board. LaRoche’s prior experience includes serving the Board of Trustees for over 10 years.
