As I had mentioned before Don is/has retired! The girls and I wanted to have a party for him at a small hall or something, but in honour of his retirement and the fact that it was his party – we let him pick. LOL
So we had a great gathering at our house this weekend. Don worked with me on the guest list and it was a perfect mix of people who have been a part of our lives through the years.
I would like to thank everyone who attended and helped us celebrate with Don – Ron and Bev, Jim and Janice, Paul and Mary, Todd and Sharon, Dave and Nadine, Kevin and Rita, Erica and Dion, Stu and Susan, Dean, Ivan and Bruce:) And of course our marvelous family - Tracy, Cal, Blake, Emerson and Reese and Lindsay and Jeremy. We had a great evening of visiting and reminiscing, listening to the “gravel guys” tell their tales, etc.
Don’s company DWS Aggregates Consulting Inc. is bustling as of today, with plans for some work through the winter months. Don keeps telling the contractors that call him he doesn’t want to work full time, but the calls keep coming in. Essentially his immediate future plans are working for DBH Technical Services on a part time basis.
We hope to spend April in the south, as my contract will be completed as of March 31, 2012. There are murmurings that we may be retained on some basis via Volunteer Alberta, but no concrete offers or plans as of yet, so April will be ours!
