Schenkler, who has served as a trustee since 2004, was presented a proclamation at a meeting Jan. 9 by Mayor Bob Weitzner who declared the day Michael Schenkler Day in the village. 

"It has been a decade filled with challenge, service, stress, joy, accomplishment and camaraderie," said Schenkler at the retirement ceremony. "I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the Village. I am grateful to you, the other Trustees I’ve worked with, the staff and the residents of Port North, for one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences I have ever had."
