About Blythe

My husband Russ and I have been full time Mi Wuk residents since 2003 and part time residents since 1987. Reality says that it's time to move on though and we'll be moving to Boise, Idaho at the end of 2019. I've been on the MAHA board for 'a long time' and am happy to be there so I can know what's going on in our community. I've also been on the MWSP Fire Protection District Fire Board since 2016 (or was it 2015?). You can always reach me at blythek@mac.com .
