A Quarter Century



Today I got to attend a luncheon for employees of my school district who have been there for 25 years. I never dreamed I'd stay this long, but the job really worked out well for me. I couldn't have asked for a better career. The luncheon was fun, and the people who were there to honor us were so friendly and cheerful (the superintendent, some other high-ups, and some school board members). We each got a clock with our name engraved on it. Way cool! Now on to the next 25 years. (Most of them served as a retiree, I hope.)

My 'get fit' report for the day: no work-out today!

Wow! Congrats! I can't even imagine settling anywhere that long (I'm in my current job the longest of anywhere at 6 years...)

Carol, nice clock (it could have been an ugly one!) congrats for doing a great job for 25 years.

Nice gift. After 20 years we got an engraved school bell. Not so useful as a clock. I retired before I got to 25 so I'm not sure what they gave then, if anything.
