Anderson announces second retirement
By: Lake County News-Chronicle, Lake County News Chronicle
Gordy Anderson is retiring ... again.
Nineteen years ago, he retired from a local telephone company and started a part-time job at the Two Harbors Area Chamber of Commerce to keep him busy. That position became a full-time gig, and Anderson, 69, has spent almost two decades promoting the area for businesses as the chamber director.
“It’s been a great job. It’s been a fun ride,” he said.
He will officially retire in March, after a month or so of training a new director. He said he doesn’t plan to take on any more part-time work, but he will keep busy with other organizations such as the American Legion and the Two Harbors Area Fund.
He said he’s looking forward to spending time with his five kids and 15 grandkids, doing the things he likes — fishing, golfing and camping — and not having to answer any phone calls.
“I’m just excited that I’m going to actually retire,” he said.
