Pattonville celebrated the end of the year with an Oasis Appreciation Luncheon on May 24. The Oasis program trains volunteer senior adults to work one-on-one with elementary-aged children on language, reading and writing skills. During the event, tutors received special recognition for reaching milestones in their service to Pattonville students.
This year, Pattonville had more than 35 tutors commit to spending time each week with a student. Honored for 15 years were Judy Barnett, Margaret Dickinson and Carol Hutchinson. Recognized for 10 years were Paula Brose, Pam Marquardt and Martha Murphy. Marking five years of service were Joseph Molinaro, Janice Reithmaier, Laurel Soltesz-Jones and Anthony Todd.
