Fun, achievement celebrated at retirement reception
Great fun intersected with achievement on Friday, Dec. 28, at Gary Seibertís retirement party.
For the better part of 39 years, Seibert worked in this same building, first when it was Concordia Lumber (1979-2000), then Mid Mo Co-Op (2000-2002), MFA (2002-2015), and, finally, Derstler Lumber (2015-present).
Siebert, who was lauded as a hard worker, will continue on part-time at Derstler Lumber in addition to helping at Cathyís Country Restaurant, in Alma, which his wife owns and operates.
Siebert is pictured with his family and grandchildren (front row, left to right) Malaki Merrick (8), Piper Merrick (4), Audrey Hurt (6), Kaleb Hurt (4); (back row, left to right) Terra Merrick, Seibert, Cathy Siebert, Kim Hurt and Julie Schlueter.
