Sequim: Beitzel named Citizen of the Year

SEQUIM — City Councilman John Beitzel was named the 2003 Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year and honored at a chamber luncheon Tuesday.

Beitzel was one of three finalists competing for the title. He was nominated by fellow council member Patricia Kasovia-Schmitt.

Tuesday’s luncheon was held before an audience of 100 at John Wayne Marina in Sequim.

The chamber each year acknowledges an individual who has stood out for his or her volunteer service to the Sequim community.

Beitzel’s list of volunteer activities in Sequim and Clallam County was impressive to the award’s selection committee, comprised of past winners.
