The COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions have put a crimp in traditional retirement parties, but Beth Vogt’s friends, coworkers and former students still have a chance to wish her the best.

Cards will be gathered and presented to her on June 17.

Send cards to Lincoln Elementary School, c/o Beth Vogt Room #15, 200 S. Sampson St., Ellensburg, WA 98926.
