Our volunteer spotlight is now shining on Pat Harney. Pat has been with Golden Games for about seven years and has managed the Half Mile Walking event. He is also our current vice-president.
Growing up, Pat was involved in softball and football (his favorites) and also participated in basketball, swimming and track. He was obviously a very well-rounded athlete! After the days of his youth, he picked up darts and horseshoes (his favorites), and also bowled, walked, and played billiards. No surprise that he likes all the Golden Games events!
Pat also participates in Silver Sneakers gym classes (available with many health care plans for free!).President Alan Villavasso awarded a plaque to Chris Moore, our former treasurer, for his dedication and hard work that he contributed to our senior group.
