La Jolla Presbyterian Church bid farewell to its preschool educator of 34 years, Betty Hilbert, at a retirement party May 31. Hilbert was a teacher for nine years, after which she spent more than 20 years directing the preschool program. The celebration was attended by current and former teachers, former students and friends from out of town. Many thanked her for the lessons she taught them.
