To mark our 50th anniversary in 2017, the retirement system is showcasing photos of our members at work through the years. We are posting new photos every Thursday on Facebook and Twitter (hashtags #throwbackthursday #tbt #nhrs50) and compiling them here.
Here is a picture of Len DiSesa at a 2008 Christmas parade. DiSesa retired as Deputy Chief of the Portsmouth Police Department in 2009.
Dennis Harrington is in his final year as principal of Moharimet Elementary School in Madbury, NH. He is the only principal the school has ever had. He previously worked in Somersworth and is a former NH Principal of the Year. In this photo, he can be seen talking with a parent volunteer, Jim Davis (himself a retired NH firefighter) about the sugarhouse that was built by the community on the property of the school.
Diane worked at SAU 39 as the Payroll & Benefits Specialist and was also a Foster Parent for the Nashua District. The teachers from the Amherst School District donated many gifts for the foster children for a number of years.

Pictured, left to right, Cheryl Herbert (Family Division), Lisa Cassavaugh-Deschene (District Division), and Sheri Warburton (Probate Division), with Jane Bradstreet, Call Center manager.
This picture of Kathy was taken in the Assessor's Office at Lebanon City Hall about 20 years ago. She worked for the City for 19 years and retired in 2006.
The firefighter featured in this picture driving the horses is Ernest D. George, father of Richard George who also served in the Claremont Fire Department and retired as an Assistant Chief.
This picture is of Fran at the Pelham Elementary School (Sherburne School) “Arts for All” celebration of National Youth Art Month in 1982. For the seven years that she worked for the school, she would invite local artists to come and share their art with her elementary students.
These pictures were taken sometime in 1968-1969 while Martha (Lamson) Butterfield was employed as a secretary for the college director at the former NH Vocational-Technical College when it was located on Lafayette Road in Portsmouth.
In the summer of 1978, Martha moved to Concord where she worked for a few months at the technical college. Then in late December 1978, she transferred to work at NHRS where she had many enjoyable years of employment. Martha started in a secretarial position and moved on to a Field Auditor/Representative and retired from that job in 2005.
