On to the next chapter

Jul 7, 2020

To the editor:
I am writing regarding my retirement from the County of Sullivan on Thursday, July 2, 2020. My last day with the Office for the Aging (OFA) and Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) will be on Wednesday, July 1, 2020.
I would like to thank all the volunteers that provided a few hours or many hours of volunteer service to many agencies, stations and to your community, you truly make a difference. The definition of a volunteer is a person who freely offers to take part in an enterprise or undertake a task or freely offers to do something and for that we say Thank you!
I have enjoyed my 33+ years of service with Sullivan County and the Sullivan County Office for the Aging and 30 years in the RSVP Program. I have had the pleasure and privilege of working with five (5) Office for the Aging directors- James P. Galligan, James Lyttle, Deborah Allen, Stephanie Brown, and Lise-Anne Deoul and three (3) RSVP Project Directors/Coordinators- Mary Inghrim, Carol J. Kelly, and Caryn Mathews and so many wonderful co-workers who are like family. I feel it is my time to move on to my next chapter of life in retirement.
I will take with me the everlasting friendships and memories that I have made over the years it truly has been a pleasure working with all of you.
