Al (Aly) Parchuck of Methuen has retired from the Salem Athletic Club, Salem, NH after 34 years as its General Manager. The announcement came from SAC owner, Suzi Parker.

In making the announcement, Ms. Parker stated, “Al has been with us since day one (March 7, 1980) and has served the club and our members with distinction, honor, and a whole lot of fun. His contributions have been endless and he will be missed by all.”

As General Manager, Mr. Parchuck has been involved in all aspects of management and the club’s operations. In the early days, when Salem Athletic Club was primarily a racquetball club and social meeting place,
Parchuck served as the local racquetball ball pro.

He is a past board member of NEHRSA (New England Health Racquet and Sportsclub Association,) past president of the Salem Boys and Girls Club, and is active in the Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce.

“There simply were not many days when I didn’t love coming to work at the club,” Parchuck stated. “I have great affection for the community and our staff, many of whom have been here almost as long as I have. I will especially miss the interaction with our members who have helped us make SAC one of the most popular athletic clubs in southern New Hampshire.”

Parchuck and his wife, Maureen, have lived in Methuen for 20 years and will now spend their winters in Florida and summers on Lake Winnipesaukee.
