Congratulations are in order for Roger Gable, honored by Mayor Jon Nehring as Volunteer of the Month at the June 11 meeting of the Marysville City Council. 

Gable is the owner of Gable Piano in Everett. After the shooting at Florida's Stoneman Douglas High School in February, he paid for newspaper ads and raised more than $12,000 so five local students and two chaperones could attend the March for Our Lives rally in Washington, DC. He also supported two local events in Marysville by donating use of his sound system. 

“Your efforts, initiative and passion have encourage youth voice and active citizenship in our community,” Mayor Nehring said in presenting the award. “Thank you for inspiring students to advocate for their futures and for all that you do for Marysville and our Snohomish County community.” 

Gable was nominated for the award by Jim Strickland, a teacher at Marysville Pilchuck High School, and Rebecka Thoms, mother of a Marysville Getchell High School student. Thoms’ daughter Bailey was one of the students who participated in the Washington, D.C., rally. 

“To see so many people standing up for one cause was really inspiring for those kids and none of it would have happened if not for Roger,” Rebecka Thoms wrote in her nomination.
