At the last Herricks board meeting teachers custodians, bus drivers and student representative retirees were all honored.
However, because I have, personally, spent so much time at the Herricks Community Center with the Herricks Community Players and attending school board meetings, the retiree who stands out most prominently in my mind is custodian John Meloni.
For years he has been the backbone of the Herricks Community Center.
Morning, noon and night he was always there to open a door, close a window or do anything he could to not only make the place sparkle but to make using that facility a pleasure…all with a wry sense of humor.
He will be sorely missed by one and all.
