Congratulations to Tony Boiter on his retirement as the City’s Recreation Director. Throughout Tony’s 17 years, he has worked hard to make each one of the ten youth sports programs a good experience for the kids and families. Along with Tony’s passion for the kids staying active, being competitive and having fun, Tony spent extra hours being a handyman to make improvements to the recreational facilities. Tony will be missed and we thank him for all he has done for the Liberty community and the kids.
We also wish volunteer and part-time Recreation Assistant Derhea Lesley the best as she has finished helping the Rec Department after many years. Derhea will be missed and we thank her for all she has done for the Liberty community and the kids.
