MetraPark Honors Sandra Hawke

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

MetraPark holds an open house to honor a legend. Sandra Hawke is retiring from her role as marketing director at MetraPark.

The Montana Pavilion was decorated with memorabilia from Sandy's time at the Metra. Organizers even included a hat theme, recognizing Sandy's history with hats. Sandy says it was different to have a party thrown for her after being in charge of throwing parties for the past 25 years.

"So to have them honor me like this and to have people like these, you, and many others, that are here today to give me a little send off, you know it's just a big surprise," she said. "It's wonderful and I'm having a great time."

"The fun times everybody's had and I think it's fitting that she goes out thinking of all the fun that it has been," said Bill Dutcher, MetraPark's general manager. "And it has been a ride. It's been a wonderful ride and so many successes down here and she's been a huge part of it."

Sandy says her fondest memories are mostly from MontanaFair because the event brings out so many people. She has no big plans yet, but says she is going to focus on spending time with her husband and friends.
