Port recognizes Calhoun’s contributions

West End resident John Calhoun was surprised at last Wednesday’s Chamber of Commerce meeting, with a letter of appreciation from the Port of Port Angeles commissioners. The letter was read and presented by commissioner Connie Beauvais seen here with Calhoun. The letter read as follows:

August 8, 2017

Mr. John Calhoun

Dear John,

On behalf of the Port of Port Angeles and the citizens of Clallam County, we sincerely thank you for your time, dedication, insight and contributions to the Port’s first Timber Advisory Committee (TAC) since its inception in August 2016.

Your previous 12 years of service as a Port Commissioner, extensive Department of Natural Resources (DNR) expertise and 35 years of policy work on forestry related issues on the Olympic Peninsula were absolutely invaluable to TAC.

It is dedicated and involved citizens like you who make a difference in the economic livelihood of Clallam County. Your participation on the Timber Advisory Committee advising the Port Commission on timber issues, timber harvest rules and regulations, advanced wood products and environmental issues has been integral in advancing the message that well-managed timber lands on the Olympic Peninsula are crucial to the county’s environmental and economic future.

With gratitude and appreciation,

Colleen M. McAleer


Connie L. Beauvais
