After serving 16 years as the District 3 Supervisor representing the Lake Almanor Basin, Sherrie Thrall attended her last board meeting on Dec. 20. Her fellow Plumas County supervisors acknowledged her service with kind words, a gift and a luncheon in her honor.
Board Chairman Kevin Goss recognized her for her dedicated service to the county’s citizenry from 2007-2023. He presented her with a print of the Olsen Barn on behalf of the board and certificates of recognition from Congressman Dough LaMalfa and state Senator Brian Dahle. A similar award is on its way from state Assemblywoman Megan Dahle.
Goss also read a letter from former Supervisor Lori Simpson who congratulated Thrall for her years of service and for being the longest-serving woman on the board. She mentioned that Thrall always did her homework, and commended her work on the general plan update, budget and water issues.
Supervisor Jeff Engel said, “I appreciate everything you’ve done; it’s been an honor and privilege to work with you for the past eight years.”
In a light moment, Goss presented Thrall with her cardboard replica, which has been filling her seat since the onset of Covid, because Thrall attended the meetings remotely. The back of the cardboard cutout was signed with good wishes.
