 In addition to being a member of the Royal Palm Masonic Lodge, Russell was a long time member and served on the Board of Directors at the Airboat Association of Florida. His was dedicated to protecting the Everglades and the Gladsman culture. He was instrumental in coordinating Everglade’s outings for the Boy and Girl Scouts as well as other youth groups.
