Friends, relatives and co-workers streamed into the United Way building Thursday to say goodbye to a longtime employee.

Mary Anne Sides retired after 26 years with 'A Call For Help'.  This morning she was surprised with well-wishers bidding her a fond farewell.

Mary Anne, along with husband Eddie, are now both retired and plan to spend more time with their sons and grandson.  They're looking forward to a second grandchild's arrival this May.
