A total of 83 employees will retire from the Lambton Kent District School Board come the end of June.

Another 75 are marking 25 years with the board at tonight’s recognition ceremony.

“It seems that more and more people when they retire now are kind of repurposing or moving onto new meaning in their life and moving onto other opportunities,” says Director of Education Jim Costello. “Some of these people are custodians and secretaries, they’re not all teachers.”

The event starts a 7pm at the Dresden Arena.
