Randy Elder’s hard work as a driving force in the passage of the Loomis Fire Protection District assessment has been recognized by the Placer County Board of Supervisors. The Loomis resident was among six people honored Nov. 25 for outstanding community service. Elder and the other honorees were presented commemorative coins. Since December 2002, the board has recognized outstanding citizens who have long track records of community service, have performed heroic acts or participated in little-known, but commendable feats. “I am very pleased to honor one of the unsung heroes of the Loomis Basin and Placer County,” said board chairman Jim Holmes, the supervisor who represents District 3. “As a member, then as president of the South Placer Heritage Foundation, Randy has helped to save the Blue Goose Fruit Sheds … The community’s renovation of the sheds has turned the Blue Goose into a well-used community asset, a hub of history in the Loomis community. “Most recently, Randy helped Loomis residents understand the critical importance of providing additional funding to the Loomis Fire Protection District through an assessment, to make sure that staff and equipment are ready and available to serve. The assessment was approved.”
