We, of course, will especially miss Rick in Washington County. I'm attaching the invitation to his farewell party as a reminder that you have an opportunity to tell Rick goodbye in person this Friday. Below is the text from the original message:

Rick Samuelson will be leaving us. His last day will be Friday, February 20th. He has a wonderful new job opportunity in VIRGINIA! Also, he, his wife and two young boys will be closer to family. We have to be happy for them but not for us!

Rick has worked for WCCLS for 6 years. In that time he has led many efforts in the county and in the state to improve library services to children and families. He was especially passionate about and successful in providing early literacy supports for our community. Plus, he does the most AMAZING storytimes! For these things and many others we are truly grateful and cannot thank him enough!

We invite you to join us in celebrating Rick's work with WCCLS and wishing him well in his next adventures. I've attached an invitation to the festivity that includes the particulars. Please feel free to share this invitation with others in your organization who may have worked with Rick.

Hope to see you there!

Subject: [kids-lib] Goodbye Oregon

Hi gang,

Because I have made so many wonderful friends in the Oregon library world I wanted to send out a quick note to let folks know that I'm moving out of state (Virginia). This Friday will be my last day with WCCLS.

I have been so proud to be involved in the great library work being done around the state. I feel that Oregon libraries embody a dedication to children's services that cannot be matched.

I hate to lose touch with friends. If you want to keep up with me, feel free to do so at my personal email address: rick.samuelson(at)gmail(dot)com

Best wishes!

Rick Samuelson, Youth Services Librarian
