Congratulations to Glenda Belluz and Charlene McTavish on their recent retirements.
Glenda no longer will be driving the big yellow school bus after having a bus run for 31 years. She said “she will miss the kids.” And as many students noted, she was the best!
May you retire taking many lasting memories with you and knowing you were much more than of a bus driver but a support and example to many.
Charlene, meanwhile, was employed for several years at H&R Block.
May both you ladies enjoy this next chapter in your life!

It is with great joy that I announce a new baby boy to our family.
Carley McCormick and Brent Romyn had son on Aug. 31 and Harlan Daniel already is loved by many.
Grandparents Darryl and Charlene Romyn and great-grandma, Nellie, along with myself plus a large extended family, are happy to welcome this adorable addition.

Being cremated is my last hope for a smoking hot body.
