My Dad just announced yesterday that he is retiring from the police department, effective July 1, this year. He told as many people in person as he could. Even people not working that day called my dad and said they heard the word hehehe. News spreads like wildfire there apparently! He's worked at the PD for 29 years. So looks like we have 2 retirement parties. They do one at the PD, which my mom and I won't really have to worry about. But then we will do our own, and that's what I'll have to help plan.
I think we've got it narrowed down to 2 locations. One spot it would be us doing mostly everything, the other it would be them doing mostly everything, but more expensive. We'll have to weigh the pros and cons. I don't even know where to begin! I know there are lots of people to invite. I mean, my dad is like friends with everyone, especially after 29 years! Any good tips out there? Thanks!
