Sometimes you come across a person that likes to help – that can be counted on to get the job done – and done well. Sometimes you come across a person that brightens everyone’s day with a cheerful vim and vigor that just makes you feel good.
At The Parenting Place we’ve been fortunate to have a person just like that – Barb Ryan who has worked at The Parenting Place as a Childcare Certification Assistant for seven and a half years.
Perhaps many of you won’t know Barb. She never sought attention – yet was always busy in the background. But if you were fortunate enough to meet her on duty at the front desk – or passed her in the hall – you will remember her.
Barb met every participant who ever walked in our door with the same grace, bright humor, and hospitality she has shown to all of us.
But as Barb has told us, it’s time. It’s time for her to retire, to take the time for herself (yes, Barb, yourself!) and enjoy family and friends.
And with her leaving, The Parenting Place will definitely miss Barb’s caring consideration and abundant energy, her bright and sassy personality, and the light she’s spread amongst us.
Thank you, Barb!
You will be missed.
