Tell us a bit about what you appreciate about them as an RCB: Ryan goes above and beyond to help others in our community. He rallies neighbors, family, and friends and works with the Roseburg Police Department to help keep the Hucrest neighborhood safe. Together they patrol the neighborhood at various days/times, using a Facebook page he created to work with others track people that are doing unsafe or illegal things. He also does A LOT in town to clean up various areas, parks, and under bridges of debris left behind by others. There is so much more that he does that we all appreciate with little to no compensation or recognition other than the few of us who thank him on Facebook posts. He truly is appreciated, respected and our neighborhood wouldn’t be as safe and our town as clean without his efforts.
