This is Ron, Ranger and Volunteer Coordinator, me, and Randy, Park Superintendent.
I don’t know if I will ever return to work at Fort P., but as of now I certainly hope I do. They had a nice little ceremony today, with the Park Superintendent, the Volunteer Coordinator, and several of my co-workers attending. I was given a very nice letter of appreciation, indicating that I have given 903 hours of service to the Dept. of Interior (combined Lassen and Fort Pulaski). I got a very beautiful pin, The President’s Volunteer Service Award, as well as a certificate, and then a delicious cake was served.
Fred took pictures with my camera, and although the batteries went dead at one point, he got a good selection of photos:
The first is me, Ellen in the doorway, and Randy.
Mary and me:
All but the city water hose and electric cord are stowed, and Fred just helped me hitch the truck to the 5ver. I will definitely need air in the tires in the morning and am glad I set it up with Maintenance. I have a bit of housekeeping to do this evening, but I’m ready to pull out!
