Imagine Lynn’s surprise and delight at the staff holiday luncheon when she was given a letter of congratulations on her retirement from President and Mrs. Obama. It reads:
We send our warmest congratulations as you retire after more than three decades of extraordinary work with the Capital Area Food Bank.
Across the D.C. area, your organization serves as a lifeline to those in need, and it has been a pleasure to work with you over the years. As you celebrate your retirement, we hope you take tremendous pride in all you have done to lift up lives and inspire others to give back to their community.
We wish you all the best as you set off on the next stage of your life.
Barack Obama & Michelle Obama
