44 Years Later

Forty four years working for the City of Tallahassee Parks and Recreation is not going unrecognized.

Randy Trousdell will be retiring Friday as the city's director of parks and recreation, and to honor his dedication and passion, Mayor John Marks presented Trousdell with a proclamation thanking him for his many years of service.

His daughter was at his side and a standing ovation came from the room.

The mayor invites everyone to celebrate Trousdell's retirement Thursday at Dorothy Oven Park at 3 p.m.
