Jerry Hawkins Retirement
Long time Collinsville auto repairman Jerry Hawkins was surprised by family and friends Friday June 27th, 2008 with a surprise retirement party on his final day of work. Jerry is a 1970 CHS graduate and a former city commissioner.
Thursday June 26th: Hi, Ted my name is Mariah Hawkins. My father is Jerry Hawkins. He is retiring this month on Friday June 27, 2008. I was wondering if you could announce that he is retiring and we are having a suprise retirement party for him (that he does not know about). The hours are 1-4 p.m at American Bank Of Oklahoma in Collinsville. It would be greatly appreciated if you could. Thanks for all you do. Have a blessed day. -- (6/26/2008 9:30pm)
