A Smiling Face Retires

Ann in a white van with boat attached in forest.As our AMI (Advanced Meter Infrastructure) project neared completion, Lakeview Light & Power reached another milestone in its history as our long-time Meter Reader Ann Slayton retired on July 31st. A Lakewood hometown girl, Ann attended Tyee Park Elementary, and Woodbrook Junior High, and graduated from Clover Park High School in 1971.

During her over a 13-year career at Lakeview, Ann has walked over 13,000 miles. To put that into perspective, that would be the equivalent of walking from Lakewood to Tijuana, Mexico more than five times! For you Fit-Bit users, that’s over 30 Million steps.

A self-described bone nut and collector Ann is fascinated with Native American culture and the history of the American West. Looking forward to retirement, she is excited to spend more time with family including her three grandchildren and recently purchased a snazzy little pop-up trailer so that she can travel in style when she hits the open road to visit some of her favorite places like South Dakota’s Badlands and Arizona’s Monument Valley.

Happy trails Ann! Take the road less traveled, it will make all the difference.
