The City of Kenora is inviting the community to a proper send-off for former councillor Rory McMillan.

A come-and-go tea will take place on Saturday at the Kenora Public Library from 2-4pm. McMillan has spent over 25 years in public service for the city.

“In the last three decades, I’ve seen our city grow and evolve. Economic diversification, infrastructure improvements, addressing climate change and reconciliation are just a few important issues that have impacted our community. Having been part of these discussions has been a very humbling and singling honour that I will always cherish," McMillan said. 

McMillan says he plans to spend his retirement with his wife Glenda, who he’s been married to for over 50 years. He also plans to spend some time cruising around the community in his new white Corvette.
