Blessed to live in Baker County

To the editor:

Once again we can be very proud of our residents in Baker County!

Congratulations to Tom Isaacson and the Bel Canto choir for the third straight win of the state championship.

Former Baker County librarian, Aletha Bonebrake, was one of only five extraordinary women in Oregon to achieve the prestigious White Rose Award by the March of Dimes. Aletha spearheaded the drive for the library tax base and the Library Foundation, and she remains involved in various activities. Peggi Timm and Mary Jane Guyer are past recipients of this award.

Carl Swinyer of Sumpter received the President's Call to Service Award for transporting veterans to Boise for medical care.

The founding of Historic Baker City Inc. was one of the very best decisions we ever made. We thank Ann Mehaffy for her leadership and enthusiasm. We are truly blessed to live in Baker County, Oregon.

Frances Burgess
