Last evening the City of Sault Ste. Marie hosted a reunion reception for retired staff and elected officials along with current members of both groups as part of the City's 100th Anniversary Celebrate 100! events.
Mayor Debbie Amaroso welcomed over 200 attendees and expressed appreciation to all who have served the City as staff and elected members both past and present. Joined by CAO Joe Fratesi, the Mayor unveiled a plaque which will hang in City Hall commemorating the City's 100th Anniversary and it reads in part "dedicated to Members of City Council and City Staff in recognition of their contributions - past, present and future."
Six former Mayors are still living and active in the community, five of whom were in attendance.
