The Shore Acres Story

David has been a successful business owner, involved at the State and National level boards of Dental Laboratory Associations until his retirement. He has served on the Board of Education at SWOCC since 1998. Shirley worked in media and public relations at SWOCC from 1971-1996 and managed the Oregon Coast Music Association from 1996-1998, when she retired.

In 1996, they helped form Friends of Shore Acres, Inc. and have co-chaired the Holiday Lights at Shore Acres State Park since it began in 1987.

They have been honored with the Bay Area Chamber’s Citizens of the Year in 1993, and again in 2008. They were honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the City of North Bend, and the state Volunteer Achievement Award in 2008 at the annual Oregon Governor’s Conference on Tourism in Salem.
