Township officer can be a thankless--but enjoyable job
Old township officers rarely just fade away; they quietly retire or, sometimes, they die while still in office.
That's how Albert Jorgenson ended up on the Pine Lake Township Board almost 33 years ago. He was appointed to fill a vacancy after Arlin Seiling died, another stalwart Pine Lake town board officer.
Albert didn't meet the same fate as Seiling. Jorgenson retired, and his final moments as a township officer were March 11.
