It was a gorgeous afternoon on August 11, 2015, a perfect day to honor one of our valued volunteer fire fighter/EMTs. Blue skies were plentiful and so was the smell of smoky BBQ. It helped make this month’s Yelm Chamber of Commerce meeting a great event.
After eating a delicious catered lunch by The Cattleman, the awards portion of the meeting began. Roger McMaster presented the Yelm Chamber of Commerce First Responder Honor Award to Ksea Rogers, which she graciously accepted.
SE Thurston Fire Authority was proud to nominate Rogers and watch as she received this well-deserved award; she is an outstanding first-responder and volunteer. SETFA nominated Rogers because she is always supporting SETFA by being first to volunteer at local community events, or responding to a call. We are so proud that Ksea Rogers is a part of our team.
Thank you Ksea, and keep up the good work!
