Spotlight on Service: 2014 Outstanding Volunteer Honorees
Volunteers - Longtime, all-around service to the City
“The Lamphiers are an amazing couple that have a heart for serving others,” said Mayor Ross in recognition of Jan and Dave Lamphier’s 23 years of dedication and service to the City of San Mateo. The couple has volunteered their time and energy with the Police and Fire Departments, as well as the Library and City Clerk’s Office.
Jan and Dave began working with SM County Fire Buffs, responding to calls in the middle of the night, rain or shine, throughout the County, bringing their smiling faces and refreshments to firemen at an active fire. The couple are long time volunteers for the Toys for Tots holidays program, are active CERT members and hosts for National Night Out.
Dave first began volunteering with the San Mateo Police department, helping with Megan’s Law requirements. He indexed the 101’st Airborne’s historical documents and they both helped with the 40th anniversary celebration. Jan and Dave worked on the Library Bond committees and today they can be found greeting visitors at the Welcome Desk to our City’s beautiful MAIN Library. The list of projects and volunteer hours is extensive – They are a special couple and the City is honored that they have dedicated their service to our community.
