Lake Pleasant Central School Superintendent Ernest Virgil was the guest of honor at a recent retirement luncheon at Melody Lodge. He retired at the end of August after having been with the school since 1971, starting as the fourth-grade teacher. Board of Education Member Katie Smith gave an overview of Virgil's career and presented him with a citation from Sen. Hugh Farley. Long-time associate and friend William Edwards related humorous stories about Virgil. Colleague Dave Bobbette was to add to the reminiscences, but was handed something to read before he began. It was from Virgil, who upstaged Bobbette with parting gift "proclamations" such as a day off at every hunting and fishing season and legal catches, which the kitchen staff agreed to prepare and serve, to be stored in the school freezer. The laughs were loud and long.
