Agnes Recco is joined at her recent retirement party by Sgt. Michael Christopher, a Corrections Officer in the county jail and president of the union, Local 2966 that represents jail and office employees.

Recco worked 22 years for the Orleans County Sheriff Department front office. Recco, better known to her co-workers as “Aggie,” started on Nov. 9, 1992 and worked until Jan. 3. She served as a civil clerk dealing mostly with billing and civil process.

Her retirement was celebrated in the Sheriff Department’s front office on Jan. 3 with lunch and cake put on by her fellow workers. Also, OCSEA Local 2966 presented Recco with a gift card of $220, which is calculated for $10 for each year of service to Orleans County. Family, friends and co-workers gathered on Jan. 25 at White Birch Golf Course in Lyndonville for her retirement party.
