It is with a heavy heart that I have submitted my official retirement as Groton Council on Aging Director, effective April 30, 2013. I view myself as a Career Servant for Seniors, thus it has been my pleasure and honor to serve the Groton Senior population for the past eleven years. I leave this position knowing I have made a difference in the lives of so many Groton senior residents. My accomplishments and goals have exceeded my expectations. Re-accreditation of the Groton Senior Center was my final challenge and accomplishment as GCOA Director.
I have spent the last year planning for my retirement, and my Staff, Board, and Volunteers are grounded and ready to launch into new leadership. It gives me great comfort knowing I have built a strong team who understands the business of running the Council on Aging. The Groton senior community has flourished and multiplied in the eleven years I have held this position. I have made many friends among the town staff, residents, and local businesses. I will cherish these relationships for many years to come.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve the Town of Groton. I valued and honored my position and leave knowing the Town of Groton was well served.
