Chuck Goyette Day Is August 25

It’s a great story, and I hope I’m not late in posting it for people who might be interested. The Select Board in Sunapee has recently named August 25, 2014 as Chuck Goyette Day. Chuck has worked for the Sunapee Police Department for more than 10 years as a crossing guard, and worked for Sunapee and Newport School districts as a teacher before that. Chuck has been diagnosed with cancer and recently he was told it is inoperable and incurable.
Despite the news from his doctors, Chuck continues to move forward with strength and smiles. Chuck is determined to show up at school crossing on the day named for him. Chief of Police Dave Cahill will be picking him up and bringing him to the crosswalk in front of the Sherburne Gym for his last day of work. All the staff at the police department will be there to support him and the community is invited as well. Sunapee friends: Please gather at the Sherburne Gym parking lot Monday, Aug. 25 at 2 p.m. to show Chuck how much the community loves him!
