Citizen Of The Year, 2018
On June 9, 2018, the Guemes Island Property Owners Association (GIPOA) voted at its annual membership meeting to award the "Guemes Island Citizen Of The Year" to Barb Ohms. This award is presented once a year to a Guemes Island resident or residents who have given outstanding service to the Guemes Island community. Barb was recognized for her outstanding leadership as president of the Guemes Island Community Center Association (GICCA) and for her involvement with a number of other island organizations. 

As GICCA's president, Barb’s inclusive leadership style and active engagement have fostered teamwork and progress on a number of important community projects and committees. If you need to schedule an event at the Hall, she’s the gal to call. Barb's also the keeper of the comprehensive, island-wide Events Calendar on the GICCA website. 

Barb is an organizer with Guemes CERT, a Gathering Lunch cook, and can be found volunteering at most island events. Barb's commitment to the Guemes community is evidenced by her ongoing efforts to partner with and support other island organizations and to build on the work done by previous leaders to improve the many aspects of life on Guemes Island. 

Congratulations Barb! The Guemes Island community thanks you for your dedication, commitment, and hard work on behalf of all Islanders!
