Residents, friends and family gathered at the Bent Mountain Fire & Rescue Station on Sunday, January 22 to honor retiring Roanoke County Librarian, Gladys M.“Totsy” Walters. Mrs. Walters, who retired on December 31, 2011, had served the community at the Bent Mountain Branch Library for 44 years, and only one other county employee has been employed longer. The Bent Mountain Woman’s Club hosted the event and unveiled a plaque that will hang in the library to continue recognizing “Totsy’s” career. Gifts, refreshments and a money tree added to the memories of the day.
