During the Sept. 19 Astoria City Council meeting, Mayor Willis Van Dusen proclaimed Sept. 20, 2011, Julie Flues Day in Astoria.

The proclamation honoring Flues mentioned her 17 years of “outstanding service” at the Clatsop County Chapter of the American Red Cross. Through her efforts, thousands of Clatsop County residents have been trained in first aid and disaster preparedness, and she has responded at all hours of the day and night to hundreds of fires and emergencies and rendered aid and assistance to those affected.

Flues is also active in the Astoria Rotary and is a member of the Clatsop Community College Budget Committee.
