It was indeed a fitting farewell on Saturday, March 7 for long-serving Parkes Early Childhood Centre director Lindy Farrant, who has given 33 years to the job and the facility.
More than 170 community members gathered at the Parkes Golf Club to celebrate with Lindy and her family on her retirement, in what was an emotional occasion.
She was joined by family members and some guests travelled from Brisbane, Sydney, St Georges Basin, Wollongong and across the Central West for the event.
The afternoon included speeches and a special video presentation which featured photos of Lindy on the job and messages of love, gratitude and farewell from the many lives she's touched over the years.
Lindy's colleague and long-serving second-in-charge, Colette Genet-Marks, was on March 11 announced as PECC's new director, officially taking on the role on March 31.
