We have some truly amazing employees at ADESA. It’s what makes coming to work every day so enjoyable. I wanted to take a moment to share with you the retirement of one of our fellow employees. On Friday, November 7, Virtue Childes retired from her dedicated post in the front office at ADESA Sarasota. She began working at the auction in March of 1998 at the young age of 72.

To celebrate Virtue’s retirement, ADESA Sarasota threw a post-sale luncheon in her honor and presented her with a photo scrapbook, a holiday ornament signed by the staff and a beautiful bouquet of flowers. General Manager Jeff York also prepared a special presentation for her.

I would like to personally thank Virtue for her years of service and to wish her a long and happy retirement.
