On Wednesday, April 25th, my administrative assistant, Jenny Sipe, celebrated her retirement after decades of work at the Library of Michigan. We celebrated with her, but I know I and many others will miss having her around, for her personality but also for all she did for us. Best of luck and enjoy your retirement, Jenny!
And on Monday, April 30th, we joined Rich Lucas and his family and long-time friends to honor him in his retirement, also after many decades with the library. Rich talked about the various duties and experiences he had over the years. The director of the Law Library, Sue Adamczak, and Rich's colleague and friend Dick Hathaway thanked Rich for his many contributions. Some of his old friends added a few anecdotes as well. It was a nice send off for Rich -- we knew he'd be leaving us sometime, but the encyclopedia of state government knowledge he takes with him will be sorely missed. Enjoy your retirement, Rich!
