Safford Receives Manchester Bar Award


NH Supreme Court Chief Justice Linda Dalianis presents Hillsborough Superior Court Clerk John Safford with the annual Manchester Bar Award.
The Manchester Bar Association recently presented Hillsborough Superior Court Clerk John Safford with the 2013 Distinguished Service Award.

At the Manchester Bar Association annual meeting and dinner event held April 16 at the Bedford Village Inn, NH Supreme Court Chief Justice Linda Stewart Dalianis became emotional as she recalled a particular day in 1986, when she and Safford worked in the same court. Not long before that day, Dalianis had run into her childhood friend, Christa McAuliffe. The two reminisced only briefly and then vowed to see each other again soon. But they never did.

When the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded, it was Safford who delivered the devastating news to Dalianis. "He knew that my friend was on that space shuttle," Dalianis said. She recalled gratefully how Safford sat with her and comforted her for much of that day.

Dalianis and others also had warm and humorous memories to share about Safford and commended him on his work and his professionalism.

Safford said receiving the Distinguished Service Award was "a highlight of my career."

The Manchester Bar Association also recognized retiring Masters Leonard Green, Alice Love and David Forrest for their service at the annual meeting.
