YORBA LINDA – A longtime Yorba Linda resident known for her mentoring and volunteer work, excellent baked goods and skill with ceramics, has been named this year’s 2010 Citizen of the Year.
Jan Duwe, also known as The Lemon Bar Lady, is an active volunteer for the Littlest Angel Guild of the CHOC Children’s and Grace Lutheran Church, where congregation members are often treated to her delicious baking concoctions.
Duwe moved to Yorba Linda in 1971, and has been an active member of the community ever since. At 85, she shows no signs of slowing down.
