Rotary club honors citizen of the year
by Ruth Traylor
The Rotary Club of Warm Springs honors Patty Hitchcock for being a true citizen volunteer for many years in the community in a variety of civic, youth and education groups and organizations.
Patty has kept the Irvington High School (athletic) Boosters club going for a very long time, and back when few people were devoting much enthusiasm toward high school sports. She is a long time veteran of not only Irvington High, but all of our area Grad Night programs for more than 11 years. She has coordinated all of the volunteers for the Fremont Fourth of July Parades since 2003, and is the co-chair of the upcoming 2006 parade, to be hosted by the Irvington district.
Patty began her volunteer days doing many school related activities within our local schools. She has served on the parent resource board and held PTA and PTSA positions at Hirsch, Horner and Irvington high schools. She worked for both FUSD school bonds, and continues to serve educational venues as her expertise is called upon. She is a Candle Lighter and has been actively involved in the Ghost House at the Hub for many years; FBI baseball league for 15 years; and is a founding member of the Fremont Exchange Club.
Patty's enthusiasm is contagious, she loves to keep busy, and our community is very lucky to have this wonderful citizen volunteer. Refreshments will be served at the event.
