Farewell from Kym
Hello Milton friends!
I will be retiring from the position of Milton Recreation Director and my last day will be Friday, September 4. Upon retirement, I look forward to taking some time to chill and reflect and see what's next for me professionally (and visit my kids in chicago and Charlotte, NC often!) and I am so excited to watch the future of Milton Recreation unfold with someone brand-new at the helm. The Town of Milton is currently interviewing candidates for the Recreation Director position, and Ben is staying on as Assistant Recreation Director. Thank you, Milton, for the wonderful and amazing journey throughout the past 13 years - I have loved every minute and I am so proud of our Town!
Kym Duchesneau, Recreation Director
