Letter: Flossie made this a better place
Thursday, September 13, 2012
Kudos for outstanding coverage on the contributions that Florence "Flossie" Wager made over the past 20 years, after she moved back to her hometown in 1992. I was one of the lucky ones who had the privilege of working side-by-side with Flossie for 17 years. The only difference was that I was getting paid by the city of Vancouver; Flossie was a tireless and incredibly humble volunteer.
Two projects that would have never come to fruition without Flossie are the building of the Firstenburg Community Center and the renovation of the Marshall Community Center. Over the past several years and for many decades to come, anyone who benefits from the use of those facilities is benefitting from the amazing legacy that Flossie left behind.
Dare I say, no elected official has impacted this community in the positive way that Flossie has over this period of time. To honor her legacy, the best way to remember Flossie is to let your voice be heard in a positive way, share your time and talents with your community, and make healthy eating and active living an everyday part of your life. One person can make a difference; Flossie made Vancouver and Clark County a better place for all of us to call home.
