After 22 years of driving the bus and being a virtual jack-of-all-trades for the Anderson County Senior Citizens Center, Phyllis Crane is set to retire at the end of the month.
A retirement reception is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 29 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the center, located on Township Square, and the community is invited.
“I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to each and every one for their support during my 22 years of service with Anderson County senior citizens,” Crane said.
“It has been a privilege to meet and know so many families in this community.”
Debbie Lottes, the director of the senior center for the past five years, said Crane has worked at every location the center has had.
“She has really grown up with the Senior Citizens Center,” Lottes said.
Throughout the years as a bus driver and an assistant to the director, Crane has shown a “true love for the senior center,” Lottes said.
Crane said her retirement plans include spending more time with her husband, her mother and her father.
Crane said she will miss the seniors — some of whom she has known since she began working at the center and many of whom were “like a mom” to her, she said.
“Now, it’s my turn to enjoy my own mom and dad,” she said.
