In Which We Blush and Bumble
For a person who deals with words I’m in the awkward position of not knowing how to express how very touched I am to be honored tonight with the title of 2016 Southern Humboldt Citizen of the Year.
The first thing you should know is the Southern Humboldt Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Center invited you all to a dinner party and silent auction at the Mateel Community Center to celebrate. The price for tickets and what’s included is posted below in the invitation.
The second thing you should know is that KMUD posted a lovely interview with me and since I don’t know what to write, I’ll let Izzy Vanderheiden help me use my voice instead.
The third and final thing you should know is that without my family’s support (they are mostly good-humored as I work through birthday parties, burn dinners, leave the dishes in the sink and show up late for everything), without my incredible crew who work long hours for way too little, and without the photos, tips, and trust as well as the kind words of so many community members, there would be no Redheaded Blackbelt. I hope we get to bring you the news for many, many years to come.
Here’s your invitation to join my family and friends tonight.
The Southern Humboldt Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Center would like to announce a very special evening on September 7th at The Mateel Community Center.
