After 28 years of community service, Tish Rudder announced her retirement Tuesday as director of the London Community Center.

City of London employees, family and well wishers offered congratulations to celebrate her retirement, along with a beautiful cake with a poignant message.

Rudder worked nine years for the city, nine years for the county and 10 years for the Laurel County School System.

When asked what she plans to do in retirement, Rudder said she plans to help downsize into a new home, spend time with the kids and grandkids “and the rest we will just make up as we go along. That’s the beauty of retirement.”
