Gig Harbor, Wash. July 16, 2012 – The City of Gig Harbor will recognize local resident Kae Patterson at its July 23, 2012 City Council meeting.  Mrs. Paterson will be honored for serving for four decades on local boards, committees and commission which have shaped the Gig Harbor community.

Mrs. Paterson was previously recognized by the city of Gig Harbor with the Carol Gorman Memorial Outstanding Volunteer of the Year Award.  Mayor Chuck Hunter and the Gig Harbor City Council will recognize Paterson’s lifelong dedication to the community with a cake and coffee reception at 5:00 p.m. and a presentation at the beginning of the City Council meeting at 5:30 p.m.  The public is encouraged to attend.
