National Volunteer Week – Steve & Dot Long

National Volunteer Week Spotlight
Steve & Dot Long

First Aid Kit Monitors Since 2017

It’s National Volunteer Week and we are celebrating some of our amazing volunteers! Today’s Volunteer Spotlight is Steve & Dot Long. Steve & Dot are NTBG safety champions! They monitor all first aid kits on the South Shore of Kauai, and their dedication doesn’t stop there. Steve volunteers with Plant Records and IT, while Dot enjoys creating mini masterpieces for our gift shops.

We fell in love with the Lawai Valley on our first trip to Kauai and are honored to participate in caring for the island and environment.  Our association with NTBG and the friends we have made there have enriched our lives beyond measure.

Dot is originally from Delaware, and Steve is from Omaha. We’ve lived in Nebraska, the San Francisco East Bay and Bellevue WA.  Dot was a Program Coordinator for the City of Bellevue.  Steve retired from Microsoft.  We have two kids, three grandkids, and a great-grandson. We will celebrate our 50th Anniversary next year.”
