“Bruce” After Hours
Last night the Apple Valley community celebrated a special “Bruce” After Hours at Valleywood golf course to honor the retirement of Community Development Director Bruce Nordquist. The event was packed and a standing ovation was given. Yesterday was Bruce’s last day at the City after a 35 year career in Richfield and Apple Valley, the last 15 years here.
Apple Valley Mayor Clint Hooppaw, Planning Commission Chair Jodi Kurtz (formerly Chamber Chair), Chamber President Ed Kearney and City Administrator Tom Lawell all gave spirited and often humorous presentations commemorating Bruce’s accomplishments as well as his new life in retirement. Congratulations Bruce and enjoy your retirement!
