Betty Johnson: Visitors Bureau Volunteer of the Month

Betty Johnson is volunteer of the month at the Long Beach Peninsula Visitors Bureau.

LONG BEACH — The Long Beach Peninsula Visitors Bureau is honoring Betty Johnson as Volunteer of the Month.

Johnson is a native of Northwest Washington. She worked in Pacific County as a social worker in the 1980s and returned to the area in 2000.

“We love having Betty as a volunteer — she has a wonderful wit and a calming presence,” the bureau said in a press release. “She also spends quite a bit of time working on her novel and is fast becoming one of the master gardeners of Seaview. Betty has a wonderful dog named Ella that also volunteers her time at the Visitors Bureau. Dora the kitty stays home and watches reality TV.

“It is a love of the beauty of the area and the people that makes volunteering at the Visitors Bureau a perfect fit for her. She loves the fact that people from all over the world come to visit our Peninsula. Betty says whether seeking an art gallery or a hiking trail, Peninsula guests make a day volunteering endlessly interesting. It’s always a pleasure to come to work with Betty: Volunteers are one of the area’s greatest treasures.”

The Long Beach Peninsula is always looking for friendly people to join its team of ambassadors. If you are interested, contact or call 642-2400.
