Administrative professionals lauded

Last year when I went to the annual observance of Administrative Professionals Day held by the Steubenville Kiwanis Club, it was at the insistence of William Croskey, a Kiwanis board member who organized this special occasion for the club for many, many years.

Tuesday when I went, I attended in his honor as Phyllis Riccadonna extended the invitation this time around, noting that with Croskey's death earlier this year, the event will now fittingly be an observance in his memory.

The club had a good turnout of its members bringing their administrative professionals, who were treated to a luncheon at the YWCA in Steubenville, a corsage and great jazz music courtesy of the Steubenville High School Jazz Band under the direction of Zach Taylor.

Very nice.

And there were plenty of laughs, too, thanks to Sue Busler, sister of Kiwanian Tom Timmons. She gave a humor-filled presentation on a lot of topics I could relate to, including menopause.

The club observed a moment of silence in Croskey's memory, and everyone attending introduced their guests.

Cas Adulewicz, club president, welcomed all those attending, and Riccadonna, newsletter chair and lieutenant governor, Division 21, announced the event will be in Croskey's memory from now on.

Although the introductions may have varied a bit, the bottom line is that offices here and elsewhere run way more smoothly thanks to all those administrative professionals. Well done.
