Supes receive First 5 Lassen annual reports

The Lassen County Board of Supervisors received the Lassen County Children and Families Commission report mid December and also paid tribute to the late Mae Sherman, a longtime commissioner on the board.

Tim Clark, the new Lassen County Children and Families Commission executive director, presented the First 5 Lassen Strategic Plan, long range financial Plan, annual audit and annual report to the supervisors for review during the Dec. 15 meeting.

“Before you we have all the annual reports we are required to have done,” he told the board in December, adding there were no findings in the annual audit.

The board received the report and did not take any action.

“I know that this is a great program, a great organization,” commented supervisor Aaron Albaugh.

Also during the meeting, Clark and the supervisors paid tribute to Mae Sherman, who served on the commission for 18 years.

“We do appreciate all the dedication that Mae Sherman has given specially to First 5 Lassen,” Clark said. “She was really a special person, and we will greatly miss her. I’m thankful I was able to work with her … She was one of those little jewels in our community.”

Supervisor David Teeter said the organization is going to continue to be in good hands with Clark, noting his recent efforts learning the job.
