The annual recognition event for retiring Bluewater District School Board staff and those with 25, 30, 35 and 40 years of service was held on Thursday, June 22, 2017 at Saugeen Golf Club in Port Elgin.  Trustees, staff and family members were on hand for a truly memorable summer evening, which included the presentation of tokens of appreciation to each recipient by trustees and members of senior staff, and inspirational guest speeches on the many changes in education over the years along with parting words of wisdom for the future by Ruth Turner (long service) and Bill Colley (retirees).  Principal Kay Fawcett ensured a smooth flow to the evening in her role as host, while Chair Ron Motz brought greetings and Director of Education Alana Murray provided closing remarks.    

Congratulations and gratitude are extended to all of this year’s retirees and those achieving significant milestones for their many years of contributions to excellence in our education system!
