Becky’s Goodbye Party

Becky Canonico was lead clerk at the North Orange Library for years and worked in the Orange County Library System for many more. She left in 2002 and staff across the system gathered to wish her well and express our appreciation for her friendship.

Needless to say, we conjured up a surprise party with the assistance of her husband Vito. A staff member created buttons which were worn by all in attendance to identify themselves to the staff at the Steak & Ale in Altamonte Springs as party attendees. We made a fake reservation for Vito and Becky at the Steak & Ale and the staff had a note beside their reservation to bring thm to the back room where we were waiting. Becky was totally surprised and a good time was had by all!
