Longtime Astoria Middle School kitchen manager Judy Griffis is retiring.

Her retirement dinner last Wednesday included a variety of guests, from Superintendent Mike Sowder to a surprise visit from her sister who lives in Minnesota.

"Judy has work-ed for Astoria School District food service for 25 years," said food service Director Chris Facha. "What an accomplishment!"
