After 20 years as custodian of Colchester school, Mrs. Thordarson will be retiring effective October 31, 2011. Mrs. Thordarson will certainly be missed; she has provided a clean and healthy learning environment for two generations of Colchester students.
Mrs. Bryks, who has been working with Mrs. Thordarson for the past five years, will also be retiring.
We wish Mrs. Thordarson and Mrs. Bryks long and happy retirements.
