This mountain is known for attracting people with big hearts. The culture here has been shaped in many ways by those who are driven by generosity and concern for their neighbors. The Mountain Enterprise was blessed 12 years ago by the hiring of Pam Sturdevant, who has devoted a full dozen years to serving the people of this region, ever ready to help in any way she could. She’s been a leader in Girl Scouts, AYSO, and PTSO. She’s always ready to help with any community event or any activity for mountain kids. For 12 years Pam has been the captain of the front counter at the newspaper office, helping residents and businesses meet their goals and solve their problems.
It has been a humbling honor to work with a woman whose generosity of spirit toward the community was unlimited.
For many years Sturdevant also helped to turn Florence Cuddy Hall in Lake of the Woods (“Cuddy Hall”) into an invaluable center for community discussions, business meetings of all sorts and private events. Seeing how hard Pam worked for the Booster Club to support high school sports teams, or for the board of the Chamber of Commerce, or decorating for Holiday Faires of years gone by, was seeing love in action.
We here at The Mountain Enterprise are going to miss this wonderful woman. We hope to see her visit often.
We also were touched by the 15 talented and skilled people who applied for the position. We are optimistic about the future of this unique community.
Please stop by the The Mountain Enterprise Hometown Publishing office in Frazier Park Thursday afternoon or Friday to tell Pam goodbye.
Working has never stopped her from sharing a laugh and a warm hello…or good-bye.
