Rob Peale, GSM member and previous Treasurer is retiring from DEP.  There will be a retirement celebration at Margarita’s restaurant in Augusta.  I have copied Troy Smith’s email below with the details.

I would like to invite you to join me in celebrating Rob Peale’s retirement from DEP.  Rob will be retiring at the end of May after 29+ years of service.  We will be having a celebration in his honor at Margarita’s Restaurant in Augusta on Tuesday, May 23 starting at 4:00.  This will be an informal gathering, socializing, and celebrating together.   If any of you have a story to tell or a special memory, let me know so we can be sure to hear it!  This should be a fun time to celebrate Rob’s career as he sets off for new travel adventures with his wife Debbie.

Please respond to me via email or phone if you are planning to attend so I can let the restaurant know how many to expect and how many appetizers to prepare.  Please respond by May 17 (2 weeks).You will be able to order drinks and food from the menu if you wish to pay for your own meal and refreshments.

I will have cards circulating within the Bureau of Remediation in the coming days and I will have one for people to sign at the party.  For those who cannot make it on the 23rd, I will have a card posted at Maryann Griffin’s cubicle to sign (next to the equipment sign out).  I am collecting money for a gift for him and to help with the cost of the appetizers.  Rob has made it clear that he does not want anyone to be obligated to pay to come to his party.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Please come and celebrate with us!

Thank you,

Troy Smith
