Jackson is honored upon his retirement
On Sept. 17, a surprise retirement party, with more than 250 people attending, was held for well-known Delmar citizen William “Bill” Jackson. The affair was held at the Delmar VFW and given by his wife Helen, family and associates. Jackson is a life-long resident of Delmar. He has been a welder for more than 40 years and had his own business, Welding by Jackson, for 25 years. The Jacksons were joined at the party by their six children, Lisa, Eva, Teresa, Robert, Pam and Keith, in addition to his secretary Beth Scott. After enjoying a roast beef and dumpling dinner, Jackson was well “roasted” as well, as many funny stories about his life were told. In honoring him, one speaker said, “He is a great man about the Town of Delmar and surrounding area.” The Jacksons make their home just north of Delmar, off alternate U.S. 13.

Thought for the week: “If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down, the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.” Mitchell Burgess
