Congratulations to Gaydonna Martin on her recent retirement from the EMS.
She joined the volunteer service in 1989-1990, then was hired as a casual attendant in Fort Frances in 1992. In January, 2002, Gaydonna returned to the Emo detachment to work full-time with partners James O’Sullivan and Lucille MacDonald.
Gaydonna officially retired on Saturday (Feb. 9), and was feted with a combined retirement and 65th birthday party.
Many friends attended the party from various avenues of her life. Heartfelt speeches were given by family members and co-workers.
The community wishes Gaydonna all the best in her retirement.
