DCA Volunteer of the Year Pat Parlette!

Congratulations to Pat Parlette, who was recognized at The Community Fund of Darien’s annual Volunteer Recognition Day Luncheon on May 22. A 1943 graduate of Darien High School and DCA scholarship awardee, Pat has maintained a lifelong connection to the DCA, where she has volunteered at the DCA Thrift Shop for over 25 years. For most of those years, Pat was our Thrift Shop treasurer, whose bookkeeping was legendary in its exactness and detail. And only matched by her love of the shop and the DCA, personal integrity of the highest standard, and her optimism and zest for life. (Pictured left to right: Pat Parlette and Amy Bell)
