AVON-BY-THE-SEA — A special gathering will be held Monday, Aug. 28 in celebration of Timothy Gallagher, longtime borough clerk and administrator, as he approaches his last week before retirement.

“We’re inviting the town or anyone that has a relationship with the administrator to give him a farewell send off,” said Mayor John Magrini.

The celebration will be held at the conclusion of [the Aug. 28] board of commissioners meeting, the final meeting Mr. Gallagher will attend as an employee of the borough.
