Ipoh City Council organised a ceremony to honour its former employees on Wednesday, February 28. A total of 71 retirees, including 14 who passed away, were given awards in appreciation for their services.
Mayor Dato’ Zamri Man said that current council staff should emulate their former colleagues’ work ethics. “I hope you all would continue to provide us with your guidance,” said Zamri in his speech.
He took the opportunity to thank the retirees for their years of dedication to the council. “Your contributions will forever be remembered,” he added.
Those present were treated to a sumptuous spread of local food whilst enjoying the company of their former colleagues.
Danam Supramaniam, who had served the council for 21 years, was brimming with joy when speaking to Ipoh Echo. “I really miss my work and my friends. It’s nice to be able to meet them after six months,” she said.
