LONG BEACH — The Long Beach Peninsula Visitors Bureau is pleased to honor Judy Uptmor as Volunteer of the Month.
Uptmor recently retired from Educational Opportunities for Children and Families (EOCF) in Vancouver after 20 years of work, and she has been visiting the Peninsula for years. Childhood memories of big family gatherings included fishing and clamming at the beach so Judy and her husband, Vic, decided to buy and fix up a 100-year-old house in Seaview.
Judy and Vic have two fabulous sons, Chris and Kyle. Judy spends two days a week in Vancouver visiting and cooking for her mother.
Seaview is a perfect place for Judy — the beach, biking, gardening, salmon fishing, crabbing and clamming are amazing and Vic and Judy love being out in their boat.
“Her Seaview neighbors are very special to her and Judy was one of instigators of the annual Fourth of July neighborhood parade. Susie, one of her neighbors, is a volunteer at the Visitors Bureau and she sent Judy our way. Judy finds it rewarding to meet so many different people and to introduce them to the delights of our peninsula and help them leave with happy memories of our beautiful area. Thanks for joining our team Judy,” the visitors bureau said in a press release.
The Long Beach Peninsula is always looking for friendly people to join their team of ambassadors. If you are interested contact Suze@funbeach.com or call us at 360-642-2400.
