To the editor:
Within the recent past, two of Logan County
Paramedic Association's distinguished board members have resigned
from service to the organization. Dr. Gene Blaum, who has been our
board president, and Shirley Edwards, our treasurer, have served in
those capacities for over 12 years. Both were very instrumental in
starting and building LCPA to what it is today. They have sacrificed
a great deal of their time and energy to a public service within
Logan County that is considered by many as a vital service to the
infrastructure of our community.
The remaining board members and employees wish to say publicly
how much we appreciate them. And to add that we will never forget
their efforts and friendship.
[to top of second column in this letter]
Should you see either of them, I would like to encourage you to
take a moment to thank them for helping to build a strong,
well-educated and well-equipped advanced life-support ambulance
service in our county.
Those of us who remain on the board of directors and employees
will work hard to ensure LCPA continues far into the future with the
same integrity both of them have shown during their tenure.
Steve Siltman, CEO
