Patty Graves

Rotary Treasurer.  I have been a member of Rotary going on three years now.  I became a member of Rotary because I wanted to be part of a group of people who can help make a difference in our small community.  What I have gained is friendships with a fun group of individuals who truly want to make a difference.
