July 14th was a sad day for me. I said good bye to a few of my favorite Canby leaders, who I also consider my friends: April and Tim Lesher of The Canby Center and Melissa Kelly, director of the Canby Public Library.
Both Tim’s and Melissa’s last days were July 15th, and now they are off on grand new professional adventures: the Leshers to Phoenix and Melissa to Lake Oswego to be their Library supervisor.
It’s a strange coincidence that I had to say good bye to all of them on the same day, at separate occasions. The Canby Center held an open house goodbye party and the Library board meeting included cupcakes and cookies to celebrate Melissa.
