Asst. Treasurer and Database Administrator
The tornado that struck Manzanita in the Fall of 2016 made a lasting impact on me. Not only was the destruction immediate and significant, but our community’s response to it was similarly immediate and significant. Soon after the last winds died down, volunteers were out on the streets assessing damage to the city’s infrastructure and any harm that may have come to its citizens. One volunteer in a bright yellow jacket with a Yellow Radio was able to tell us after a quick call in, the status of Highway 101 soon after the storm. It was an eye-opening introduction to the EVCNB; their efforts to teach our community about preparedness is critically important. I'm privileged to be able to contribute to an organization that is as vibrant and essential as the EVCNB.
