A few months ago, I had the privilege of working on a large project with Patty Southworth. Our goal was to organize and expedite a town parade for the Ballston's 225th anniversary celebration. Keep in mind, we had three weeks and no finances to do this. Patty and I were the only organizers, with a few of our friends and family as helpers. I was amazed at how she handled herself, not only at the Town Board meetings, but how she gets things done. She was able to get all the permits needed, helpers and donations in that short time. And we had a parade. We even had a wonderful fireworks display too, all arranged by Patty. I could have never pulled this off without her.
