Known for cheerfully waving at passersby from his maintenance cart, longtime Village of Wellington employee Horace Reeves is getting ready to retire.

Reeves celebrated on Friday, Jan. 26 when a few local residents came together at the original Wellington Mall to say farewell as he prepares for his retirement at the end of this month.

After more than two decades serving as a village employee, Reeves will park his golf cart for the last time and sail off into the sunset to enjoy his retirement.
