April 30, 2011


The Utility District staff members threw a retirement party for Richard Jenks at the Knights of Columbus grounds on April 30, 2011. Richard has been an extremely important and dedicated member of our staff for 41 years now, an incredible feat in itself. In fact, Richard has recently been the staff member with the longest tenure as of his retirement.


Richard is a first class lineman, which means he has worked diligently in the most severe weather conditions and also in repairing damage from vehicles accidently hitting utility structures. It is no easy thing to be called out in the middle of the night to repair damage in bad conditions, but Richard’s dedication and compassion for our customers has shown through time after time during these events over the years.


Our staff would like to congratulate Richard on his long and productive work career. As a show of appreciation, staff chipped in to present Richard with a meaningful and symbolic gift, which is a leather lineman climbing hook, mounted on a beautiful inscribed wooden base. Richard was clearly touched with this gift, which shows in many of the photos linked to this article.


So from all the staff at the Utility District, our hat’s off to you Richard. We hope you have a thoroughly enjoyable, and well-earned retirement.
