A Gentleman Retires

 

René Guerette, GTA's Acting Regional Director, (Sitting)

Gordon Pole, our Gentleman

and Ron Wilcox, Halifax District Director.

 

A retirement dinner in honour of Gordon Pole was held in Halifax on October 5, 1992. During the evening, Gordon was recognized by his colleagues at DOC, the vice-president of MT&T and representatives of local telecommunications or­ganizations. Also on hand were Joan, Gordon's wife, two of their children and spouses.

 

The Staff Benefit Fund presented Gordon with a framed photograph of the Cabot Trail while René Guerrette pre­sented the guest of honour with a gift on behalf of DOC employees in the Atlantic region. Pierre Boudreau, Executive Director, also presented Gordon with a certificate from the Prime Minister.

 

Despite a lot of good-natured ribbing that went on, one word kept popping up. That word was "gentleman". Whether it be at work or in a social environment, that is what Gordon was and is.
