Patterson Rotary Events (Aired on September 10 & 11, 2016)
Patterson Rotarian Bill Flash is interviewed about his club’s activities. The Patterson Club holds a number of fundraisers annually that have become much anticipated events for the residents of Putnam County and beyond. The Blues and BBQ event provides great music from local bands and nationally known musicians along with food prepared by the great cooks of Patterson Rotary–ribs, brats, burgers, and more. A recent program featured both guitarist Dylan Doyle and the band Fade to Blues. Admission is free, although donations are encouraged ($10 suggested). Other events include Touch a Truck for Heroes and a semiannual community giveaway. In the spring, the main event is Men Who Cook, a contest that has run for over twenty years.
