NASELLE - Junea Brannon, the longtime custodian of the Naselle-Grays River Valley Schools, was retired with a retirement party held in the Naselle High School commons Sunday, Feb. 22. Brannon completed a career, which spanned 31 years with the Naselle school district.
The party, sponsored by the Public School Employees Union and the Comet Booster Club, honored Brannon for her many years of service to the school district and the community. Superintendent Gerald Schmidtke thanked Brannon on behalf of the school district. Pat Vernon, representing the Comet Booster Club, thanked her for all of the extra services which she had provided to the community for many years.
Brannon, when asked what she planned to do in all of her spare time, responded, "How much time do you have? For starters, there is the FinnFest, I'll be involved with the play helping make costumes, I plan to do some gardening since I have been taking the Master Gardener class, and I will be working two days a week at the One-Stop. I also have jury duty this month. Other than that, I think I will stay busy."
Members of the community responded with a potluck lunch that was enjoyed by all of those present.
