Patty is an incredible person who has always brought knowledge, foresight and creativity to the city of Belleville.  She will do well.

Comment by Barry Bernstein on Monday

She was one of my favorite show directors. It's great when the whole community supports a show. She made sure that happened. The city of Belleville understands the economic impact of an art fair. It's good knowing that will continue. Congrats to Patty.
