Retirement Salute For Catherine AndersMore than 100 people gathered at the Shinglehouse Firehall to pay tribute to Catherine Anders. Purpose of the occasion was twofold – to mark her 80th birthday and to thank her for 39 years of service as director of the Oswayo Valley Senior Center in Shinglehouse.
She’ll be retiring from that post at year’s end. Barb Kiel, senior center supervisor for the Potter County Area Agency on Aging, described Cathy as one of the agency’s strongest assets and “an ideal employee.” Anders plans to remain active in the center, where her vast knowledge and infectious enthusiasm remain key elements. Among those thanking Anders for her service was Mrs. Claus (Mary Jones).
