Over the last week and a half, Carolyn Dwire has been going through her desk in the district court clerk’s office.
After 32 years, she had acumulated quite a pile of papers.
During her retirement reception at the Judicial Center Friday afternoon, Dwire shared some of what she had found with those in attendance.
She showed several thank you letters she had received from people she had helped over the years, as well as a letter she had written to request time off.
During the reception, Kansas Highway Patrol motor carrier inspector Fred Johnson sang for Dwire, as he used to do for everyone in the office when it was his job to deliver tickets to the clerk’s office.
Judge David Ricke presented Dwire with a certificate of appreciation from the Kansas Supreme Court and thanked her for her years of service.
