Tell us a bit about what you appreciate about them as an RCB: This group of caring individuals is working together to make things better in their community. They want to increase the community spirit, strengthen relationships with residents, and improve the conditions of the remote mobile home park they live in. Despite their busy lives with work, families, and pursuing degrees they are committed to serving their community. They are committed to going beyond the traditional roles as board members to achieve goals and make their neighborhood a better place for all residents. It’s been a rough year and a half with COVID-19 and evacuations and clean-up from a Wildfire that threatened their homes yet they stay the course and do what needs to be done.
