Mayor Jahn presents Liz Harris with a “schooled” bear for her retirement from Big Bear Lake City Counil

The evening began with a wonderful tribute to retiring Council Member and former Mayor Liz Harris.  In addition to a video that featured many members of the community saluting her 12 years of service to the City and the citizens of Big Bear the audience echoed similar sentiments.  She was tough with a feminine approach to leadership the “iron lady in a velvet dress”.   It was unamous, she will be missed on City Council.
