Wow, have the years flown by. I feel enormously lucky to have chosen a career that has brought me so much pleasure. That pleasure came from helping to guide students to achieve their goals. It became the love of learn- ing for many and to witness stu- dents when they finally "got it?' Words can hardly express the joy and gratitude I felt at the wonderful retirement party. It was a brilliant way to catch up and personally say good-bye to all of the fantastic col- leagues, students, and community members. In fact, it felt more like a reunion than a farewell, o Thank you to the countless people who contributed their time and assistance to bring the party to such a great success filled with songs retirement anecdotes and special presentations. The flow- ers, scrapbook, cards, notes, ride in the fire truck, and gifts from staff, students, and community was so greatly appreciated. As I embark on the next phase of my life's journey, know that I take cherished memories of friendship, love, and support with me from my time in Kimball and will be with me forever. I will truly miss all of you. Thank you so very much, Paulette Hauge Stroke support program Our stroke support group offers survivors and family members a way to understand those changes and enrich their lives after a stroke or head injury.
