The Officer of the Year, Patty Ristau demonstrated leadership and volunteerism, going above and beyond the duties of the office. Patty participated in nearly all Lodge Activities, was instrumental in assisting/organizing lodge events and is a multi-talented individual. In addition to numerous volunteer hours, Patty has been key in engaging new members in lodge activities and committees. Though a conflict kept her from participating in ritual, as a team player, she attended practices and assisted the team with word accuracy and was our #1 supporter. Charity, Justice, Brotherly and Fidelity, Patty encompasses the cardinal principles of Elkdom.
