Dr. Henry and Dottie (Glaiber) Snider celebrated their 50th anniversary on June 30. The Sniders lived in Hebron for 36 years and were active in the community, especially the United Brethren of Hebron Synagogue and Boy and Girl Scouting.
Dr. Snider worked for an oil company prior to joining the faculty of Eastern Connecticut State University (ECSU) in 1971, where he co-developed the Environmental Earth Science Department. He was named in the Founders of EES Award. At ECSU until 2008, he was department chair, served in the Senate, and was awarded the Outstanding Professor award.
Dottie Snider taught public school for 24 years, including 17 years at RHAM High School in Hebron, and 10 years as an adjunct professor in the Business Department at ECSU. She also coordinated a Sunday school at the Hebron Synagogue in the 1980s.
They were the last couple to be married at the Linden and Myrtle Streets location of what was then Temple Beth Sholom. Dottie Snider’s parents were among the founders of the shul.
Joining the Sniders in celebrating their 50th anniversary are their three children and their families: Rebecca Miller and her husband Tim, Michael Snider and his wife Ruth, and Elliot Snider and his wife Chantal, and 11 grandchildren.
The Sniders currently reside in Richmond, Vir., where they are active members of Keneseth Beth Israel Synagogue.
