Tearful good-bye

Photo Album: 

After performing the last surgery of his 38-year career yesterday, Dr. Jas Spencer was greeted in the cafeteria at La Veren-drye Hospital with a small staff celebration. Here, Dr. Spencer was surrounded by some tearful staff, including OR nurses Twyla Howarth, left, and Joyce Pennarun, OR manager Cindy Cole, and OR nurse Marna Bobczynski. Dr. Spencer, who officially retires at the end of this month, will be honoured at a dinner Feb. 10 at the Holiday Inn in International Falls, as well as come-and-go teas at the hospital on Feb. 16 and the clinic on Feb. 21. A new surgeon, Dr. Spread, who most recently was wokring in Kenora, will start her orientation here later this month. —Duane Hicks photo
