Two weeks ago the leader of the DeWitt County Friendship Center announced her intend to retire at the beginning of 2018.
Sissy Leggett has been at the Friendship Center 10 years and says she has enjoyed her time at the senior gathering place in Clinton but just wants to take a step back.
Leggett says any accomplishments at the Friendship Center a result of the support they receive from the community and nothing she could do on her own. She points to the industrial kitchen they were able to install as something that was a great showing of the community supporting them.
Leggett says one thing she could have seen accomplished was an expansion of their parking space behind their facility. A grant through the State of Illinois was in the works until the budget crisis and since it was been on the back-burner but she would not dismiss the idea it won't ever happen.
