New board at Sierra Recovery Center

The new year has brought several changes to the board of directors of Sierra Recovery Center. Three longtime board members resigned at the end of December in order to devote time to other causes and interests. Eugene Rasmussen, Davey Paiva and Terry Anderson were acknowledged at the January meeting for their many years of contribution to the organization.

Rasmussen had served at one time as president of the board and was instrumental in recently helping the nonprofit agency receive a generous matching grant from the El Dorado Community Foundation. Paiva, of Davey Paiva Realty, served on the board for more than seven years. She served most recently as fund-raising chairperson and was helpful in finding and helping purchase several properties for the expansion of the local substance abuse agency. Anderson has had a long association with the agency and also helped with real estate purchases.

Betsy Fedor, Sierra Recovery Center, executive director, praised their dedication and contributions to the building of the agency.

Elected to fill one of the vacancies was local resident and chiropractor Dr. Howard Bittner. The new medical director for SRC, Dr. Steven Hewitt, also was introduced. Hewitt is associated with Tahoe Family Practice and will be overseeing treatment for SRC clients. New officers for the coming year include Ann Swallow, president; Candi Rohr, vice president; and Karen Linsley, secretary-treasurer.
