May 9th was John's Retirement Party. It was a heart-filled time remembering all the contributions that John has had to ACC and to the whole interpreting community her in Austin. He has been here for 23 years, and we all will miss him terribly; except that he will come back in the fall as an Hourly. What's it going to be like having him as your team?
