Happy Retirement Grandma Sue
We had a really good time at Grandma Sue's retirement party. Of course, any time our staff gets together we have a good time. That's the honest truth. We like each other and we like working together. But I must say I had mixed feelings about this retirement. Grandma Sue and I have worked and shared an office for almost 19 years. That's longer than most of you have been alive!
We've been friends as well as co-workers. Her talents lay in crafts, mine in story time and we both share a crazy sense of humor. She loves children and enjoys teasing and joking with them. I know that you as well as I will miss her. She says she will come back and volunteer. I sure hope so!!
Sue has worked for the City of Pomona for almost 25 years. She was presented a "Goddess of Pomona" statue with her name on it and the dates that she worked for the city. She was also presented a retirement pin with the picture of the goddess on it. Our good friend Allan wrote several haikus that were inspired by Sue which was a lot of fun.
All in all it went quite well. It certainly will be different around here without her. Please come in often and speak to us so we won't miss her so much!
Joke of the day: What will Grandma Sue be doing in her retirement?
Answer: Re-tire her car. :) Ha!
