VRWA Says "Until We Meet Again"
IN 2005, KATRINA hit, and a number of rural water staffers headed to Louisiana to
assist in any way possible. A fellow named "Kenny Reynolds" volunteered to make
the trip with Rick Brown, past executive director.
That was the beginning of pulling
Kenny into our rural water family. In
February 2006, he came to work with us
after retiring from city of Salem. Their
loss and our gain...
I could tell story after story - memory
after memory - but there would not be
enough pages to do so. So I won't, but I
will try to just sum up 10 years.
* A husband, a father, a grandfather, a
friend and a team player...
* A man of faith
* A man of passion
* A man of pride
* A man of caring
* A man of concern
A man of love
A man of dedication
A man of trust
A man of giving
A man of willingness
He is all these things and more.
Kenny has been a tremendous asset to
this association as he has taken his job
seriously and continued to do his best even
when it was not necessarily in his best
interest. He gives so much and expects so
little back. He wants what is best for the
other person and the association.
As he retires again, he leaves us with a
hole in our rural water family. We know
without a doubt that he will be missed
not only by us but by you across the state.
So we will not say good-bye, as we
expect to see him around, but we will
say thank you for 10 years of dedicated
service and mostly for your friendship.
