When we celebrated Roger Borth, we unfortunately could not honor him in person because he was recovering from back surgery at the time. His wife, Linda, who also serves Hoquiam selflessly, accepted our thanks for him. Roger & Linda came to Hoquiam in the early 1970s, and served our community as owners and operators of Coast To Coast hardware in downtown Hoquiam for about 25 years. They serve as a team and have both been on the Saron Lutheran Church Council. Linda is involved in the Martha Circle and for many years Roger has been part of the church & parsonage maintenance crew. They are an integral part of the body at Saron Lutheran. They have both been part of the Hoquiam Food Bank for over 15 years. Linda is the organizer and Roger the hands on, fixing appliances, picking up loads of food, dropping off food to Hoquiam schools for the school backpack program, among other countless tasks. We wanted to recognize and celebrate the significant contributions that Roger has made in our community, because although they may be behind the scenes, they are just as important.
