Tell us a bit about what you appreciate about them as an RCB:

Patti is one of those people who could fly under the radar since she single-handedly organizes a myriad of events in our community designed to bring people together on common ground. Some of the events are large and some are smaller, but the common underlying goal is to “unite,” something that just about every community in America needs right now. Always coming up with new ways to bring people together, she goes out of her way to inspire others in our community to get involved as well. Ask Patti what she is doing on any given day and it will probably involve some event that brings people together in our Siuslaw community.
