A retirement party back in Connecticut
On Thursday evening, about 200 people gathered in the Foodshare distribution center for a farewell event. The food was great, the music was good, the speeches were very touching, and they presented me with a beautiful hand-carved walking stick, a fitting memento of my time at Foodshare.
Best of all, the corporate sponsors, those who attended, and all those who donated raised $130,000 for Foodshare.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone involved!
And for all my North Country friends...may we have a similarly successful event in 10 or 15 years upon my second retirement from GardenShare!
