Retirement reception

Please join the Solon School District in celebrating the retirement of two of our teachers, Joette Meyer and Ginny Kunkel, who combined have taught 68 years here at Solon.  The community is welcome to come to a ‘Meet and Greet’ at the Lakeview media center, Thursday, May 26, from 4-6 p.m. Cards are welcome.  Addresses of other Solon retirees who could not attend will be available for the community if you would like to wish them well in their retirements.
