There were many poignant moments in 2012 shared by Bloomfield Patch readers, and we thought we'd highlight a few as we settle into 2013. This batch of local photos show the retirement of Assistant Bloomfield Township Fire Chief Lyal Bigger last fall, which proved to be an emotional celebration.
"It's been a great place to work, great people to work for, and I couldn't have asked for a better career," Bigger told the Bloomfield Township Board of Trustees at it's Sept. 24 meeting. "It’s been very satisfying, very challenging, and I'm going away from here excited privileged and honored."
