Memorial Wall Of Honor Induction Ceremony To Be Held

The Plainville Board of Education and the Plainville Community Schools' Naming Committee will hold an induction ceremony on Monday, April 17, 2017 at Plainville High School for the Memorial Wall of Honor, according to Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Maureen Brummett.

The ceremony, honoring inductee in memoriam Cadwell Hoerle, will begin in the high school's cafeteria at 6:00PM.

Mr. Hoerle, a lifelong resident of Plainville, served as a member of the Plainville Board of Education for 15 years. In addition, he was a founding member of the Plainville Rotary Club, which began in 1955, and never missed a meeting in more than 50 years. Together with his wife Peg and through their church and the Children's Christian Foundation, the Hoerles sponsored students from Cambodia, Nigeria, El Salvador and other countries over the years. Mr. Hoerle's legacy was a golf course and swim club built on the family property on Redstone Hill in 1959. Mr. Hoerle proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy and was employed by and later ran the family business, Ideal Machinery and Supply Co., started by his grandfather. He was a hands-on builder, avid gardener and had a special fondness for the ocean.

The Memorial Wall of Honor is a permanent tribute to recognize local individuals for their service to the educational community. The memorial was established by the Plainville Community Schools' Naming Committee, which includes Interim Chairperson Becky Tyrrell, William Petit Sr., Steve Martino, Lynn Davis, Kathy Pugliese, and Ex-Officio members Andrea Saunders, Dr. Maureen Brummett, and Steven LePage.

The ceremony is open to the public, but those wishing to attend should RSVP to Joan Calistro at (860) 793-3210 x202.

Adult Education Program Launches Pierrette's Closet

Pierrette Plourde was a beloved Plainville resident who demonstrated and prioritized kindness in her relationships with her close-knit family and large circle of friends. In the spirit of her generous and sweet nature, the Plourde family has donated Pierrette's quality clothing, shoes, and accessories to Plainville Adult Education students, who may be in need of appropriate interview and career attire.

"Pierrette's Closet" will be an Adult Education on-site resource, perpetually projecting goodwill, while equipping visitors (who, like Pierrette, may have put the needs of others before themselves) with outfits, inspiring confidence and success. In addition, Roger Plourde, Pierrette's husband, donated funding to finance supplies for display and storage.
Jill O'Brien, Adult and Continuing Education Coordinator, commented, "Perriette's Closet has a double mission: to offer wrap-around services removing financial barriers for students in need, by allowing instant access to appropriate career attire, and to model community service--Pierrette's Closet is a permanent reminder to students that a community member cared about them, and perhaps when given an opportunity, they will 'pay it forward' too."
