A surprise last meeting

In close to 30 years as a Lake Township trustee, Byron Scott has missed only two meetings.

So when fellow trustee Peter Stolly contacted him Tuesday and told him he needed to get to the trustee building early before the regularly scheduled meeting to handle a pressing matter, he got there as soon as he could.

“Boy, was I surprised,” Mr. Scott said Tuesday after he arrived to the township building and found his family and many of his peers had planned for him a surprise party to recognize his last meeting after 28 years as a trustee in Lake Township.

“I do have mixed emotions,” Mr. Scott said. “It was a lot of work going out at night and dealing with snow and downed tree limbs — of course there was the ice storm years back — I won’t miss that.

“What I will miss, though, is stuff like this and coming here twice a month being together with the other trustees.”
