Village of Roberts President Willard Moeri began Monday night’s board meeting by presenting Doreen Kruschke with a plaque on behalf of the board commemorating her 21 years of service as clerk for the Village of Roberts. “With respect to Doreen Kruschke, our former clerk and treasurer, I’d like to present her with a plaque in appreciation for her time. I realize this is a small thing for the service she has given to the village and me personally. I had to beg her to get back here. She’s enjoying retirement way too much,” said Moeri.

Kate Cloutier, clinical services manager for Westfields Hospital and Clinic, on Friday, March 4, will walk through the front door at the clinic, past the information desk, through the reception area and down the hall to her office just like she has since the day she graduated from WITC in 1975. She’ll spend her day, in essence, mentoring 27 CMAs (certified medical assistants) and LPNs (licensed practical nurses) sharing from a lifetime of invaluable experience. She’ll more than likely greet patients whose family members she has cared for, for more than three generations.
