Janita Woodall has been a very active Volunteer throughout the City of Live Oak! She can be found year after year at the Halloween Family Night, Pet-Paw-Looza, Wellness on Wheelz (animal vaccinations), Animal Control, and 5K's just to name a few. She always has a smile and positive attitude which makes her a true asset to the City of Live Oak!
Without hesitation, Tiffany Rodriguez jumped right in to serve wherever needed at the City of Live Oak's Christmas event. Not only did she show up early in the day to help with the necessary setup in the new location, she volunteered to work the entire night greeting and assisting guests in the line for Santa. She managed to efficiently control the crowd, answer questions from guests and interacted with the citizens always with a smile on her face. Ms. Rodriguez played a vital role in the festivities of the night, and was a true asset to the success of the Christmas event.
