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.”
