Honoring Local Leaders

Honoring Local Leaders

Wilbur Ternyik was honored this past Sunday at the 109th annual Rhododendron Festival in Florence during the Grand Floral Parade. Wilbur spent the better part of the last 60-years living in Florence serving as Mayor, City Councilor, and the Port of Siuslaw Commissioner for more than half of that time. He also became an internationally recognized expert on soil stabilization and wetlands protection. He and his wife of 53 years, Joyce, visited our State Capitol in 2009 to receive courtesies from Arnie for his work with Governor McCall on the beach bill. See the video here.
