Each year, our Good Neighbor Awards honor some of our most dedicated neighbors. They volunteer their time to help seniors and people with disabilities get the resources and support they need to age and thrive in their own homes and neighborhoods. We are delighted to honor Celia and Todd as our 2020 Good Neighbor Honoree for Miraloma Park.
Celia Kuitunen moved to Miraloma Park in the 1970s, married and raised her family happily all these years.
Then, when the pandemic reached San Francisco, Miraloma Park implemented its Shelter and Care to assist neighbors. Celia stepped up immediately to assist neighbors with grocery shopping and picking up prescriptions. She took it upon herself to help out in this way continues to this day.
She is a dedicated volunteer to our senior/disabled community, and we could not have accomplished our mission without her help.
Todd Siemers moved to Miraloma Park from Wisconsin with his wife, Linda. As a retired member of Carpenters Local 22, his interests included preserving the MPIC Clubhouse, neighborhood character and building.
In addition, Todd jumped in when Community Connector Darlene Ramlose needed surgery. He stepped up to keep the Clubhouse open for exercise and ukulele classes. Every other week, his jazz band performs a little concert in his driveway, bringing a smile and some foot-tapping to many.
