Three Honored by City for Decades on the Job

By Christina Georgiou

John Sproat, Ann Peake, and Tony Beck show off the clocks they received Wednesday evening in recognition of their
40th anniversaries as City of Easton employees.
Three City of Easton employees were recognized by city council Wednesday evening for dedication to their jobs over the course of four decades.

Ann Peake, John Sproat, and Tony Beck have each worked for the city for forty years.

Each was presented with a commemorative clock to mark the occasion.

"Since they all have a lot of time, we thought it was appropriate to give them a clock," Mayor Sal Panto said at the presentation.

While a number of city employees have been on the job for a long time, Peake, Sproat, and Beck are currently the longest serving, the mayor said.

"All of them have been actively employed, actively engaged, and they've been really, really good employees," Panto said.

Peake works in the city's financial department and answers incoming call to city hall, Sproat serves as supervisor for the wastewater collection bureau, and Beck is a supervisor in the city's wastewater plant.

The presentation of clocks is a first for the city, Panto said.

"We've never done this before," the mayor noted, adding that the city may make the gesture a tradition for such long-serving employees in the future.

The city's annual holiday and employee appreciation luncheon, where the service of other Easton employees will be noted, is next Friday, Panto said.
