Quote from Aleta's supervisor:
“Aleta has been a valuable resource for the Park District for more than 25 years.  She has watched our expenses as if they were her own; and, her attention to detail has been much appreciated.  I wish her a happy, healthy retirement. Hopefully, she can spend more time with her grandchildren soon!” -John Short, Director of Business Services and Human Resources
