Farewell to a Friend
By Kai Rambow
“It’s time to step away and spend more time with family,” shared Al Rittberg. Rittberg is a familiar, friendly face to residents who use the pool facilities. He has been the Supervisor Pool Attendant for the past eight years and will be retiring soon.
What many people don’t know is that Rittberg is a veteran with 37 years of service and a resident here. “I was still young and liked what I saw in the community. I wanted to be more involved, and I wasn’t quite ready to do volunteer work.”
“I put in my application to the CA and started in January 2010. Kelly Emerson hired me just to pressure wash the buildings. Six months later this position opened up and I’ve been here ever since.”
“Al was always very courteous, helpful and efficient,” noted one resident. His presence will be missed and we wish him well.
