“Each retiree before us has left an indelible mark on our community, contributing tirelessly to the growth and well-being of our local government. Their passion, commitment, and hard work have laid the foundation for a stronger, more vibrant community.
“To the retirees, your years of service have been more than just a job; they have been a commitment to the welfare of our community. You have faced challenges head-on, embraced change, and worked tirelessly to make our local government a better place for all. Today is not just about saying goodbye; it's about expressing our heartfelt gratitude for the legacy you leave behind.
