The Winchester-Clark County Parks and Recreation Board honored one of its own during its monthly meeting Monday night at College Park Library.
The board held a reception for long-time maintenance supervisor Ken Davis, who retired on Nov. 30 after more than 16 years of service to the Parks and Recreation Department. The contingent featured members of the parks board, friends, family and community dignataries.
Clark County Judge-Executive Henry Branham presented Davis with a watch commemorating Davis’ years of service. Parks board chairman Charles Eury gave Davis a photo album and he also received a lifetime membership to use at the Winchester-Clark County Health and Wellness Center. Winchester City Manager Ken Kerns also praised Davis for his work as maintenance supervisor.
“He’s been a tremendous asset to this department for many, many years,” Eury said. “As he goes out the door, he takes a tremendous, tremendous wealth of knowledge with him. The contacts that Ken has in this community (are invaluable).”
