Spickler serves at last Williamsport meeting

June 12, 2002|by ANDREA ROWLAND

After 21 years at Town Hall, veteran Clerk-Treasurer Donna K. Spickler worked her last monthly meeting of the Williamsport Mayor and Town Council on Monday night.

Spickler, 42, began her new job as city clerk in Hagerstown earlier in the day.

Williamsport Mayor John W. Slayman and others bid a public farewell to Spickler during the meeting.

"I'm going to miss her but I'll not stand in anybody's way to better themselves or broaden their horizons," Slayman said.

Williamsport Fire Chief Will Ball presented Spickler with a plaque in appreciation for her many years of service to the fire company and the citizens of Williamsport.

"Donna's been an integral part of the community and town," Ball said.

Choking back emotion, Spickler said she was raised in Clear Spring but felt like she "grew up" in Williamsport. She thanked town officials and residents in attendance for "accepting me as a Williamsporter."


"It's been a real pleasure," Spickler said.

She filled the position left vacant when former Hagerstown City Clerk Anna Pennesi resigned in February to move to Tennessee. Steven K. Smith was hired to replace Spickler in Williamsport.
