Citizens of the Year:
Each year the Citizen of the Year Award is presented to a Town resident who has provided extraordinary service to the Steilacoom community. This year the award is presented to the dynamic team of Harley and Sheila Moberg.
Harley and Sheila have been the heart, soul and driving force behind the success of the Steilacoom Kiwanis Club where both have played major roles with the club’s Winter Wine Fest Dinner and Auction. Their leadership and total commitment to this event have resulted in funding for many local community events, numerous monetary grants to the schools, and local scholarships. Our military have benefited from their regular volunteerism with the USO and their stewardship of the “Fishing with America’s Warriors” event.
Congratulations to Harley and Sheila for this award. Thank you for enriching our schools and community with your selfless service.
