VILLAGE OF HARTLAND - Dave Lamerand spent the last three decades of his life in municipal government.
Now the village he oversaw wants to bid him a fond farewell in honor of that service.
The village is putting on a reception for Lamerand from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, May 25, at Beer Snobs Ale and Eats, 122 Cottonwood Ave.
No special presentations or speakers are planned, said Village Clerk Darlene Igl. The event will merely serve as an opportunity for residents to remember Lamerand's long tenure as village president and wish him luck in his future endeavors.
Lamerand lost the spring election to newcomer Jeff Pfannerstill. His last day as village president was April 17.
