Today was a day to be remembered for a woman who will never be forgotten. The Anderson County Senior Center director, Debbie Lottes has announced her retirement this past month, and today all of Lawrenceburg, old and young, came together to celebrate all the memories they have from years past with her.

Debbie Lottes became the director of the Anderson Senior Center 11 years ago after working over 14 years at the Franklin County Senior Center. Living in Frankfort, Debbie has become an adopted resident of Lawrenceburg by her love for people of the community and the love she has received back by so many. When we asked Debbie what she would miss most about the center, she replied the interaction with the people and the feeling of being needed. “Somethings you can’t change in your home life, but here you can make a big difference,” she said. Debbie also told us that she would miss her staff so very much, having worked with them very closely doing all the jobs. “It takes special people to work at the center to handle all the different jobs.”

Working closely with so many, Debbie will be deeply missed by all of the members at the center as well so many in the community. We talked to Ruth McKee about Debbie. She said, “So many good things to say about her.” Ruth told us that Debbie was a very special lady, and she always provided lots of information and brought more services to the center. Karen Whitehouse told us that Debbie has been very close to the community. “So helpful and considerate,” said Karen.

So as the community bids farewell to Debbie, we will all keep our memories of her close to our heart. We wish her the very best in her future, and we thank her so very much for touching all our lives.
