Sunday, the city came together to celebrate the retirement of Ernest Laflamme Jr., who had served as the city's treasurer for the last 44 years.
The retirement celebration was held at the Castle of Knights.
Those in attendance included Mayor Richard Kos and Rep. Richard Neal.
Laflamme's daughter, Marie Laflamme, told CBS 3 that her father possesses a lot of qualities that she believes were the reasons he was elected so many times.
Marie Laflamme is now the treasurer of the city.
While Ernest Laflamme has no official plans for retirement, his family hopes he will relax for at least a little while.
