Pat Trumbull

After 30 years, Pat Trumbull has stepped down as a Board Member of Friends of the El Cerrito Library. She was also a Recording Secretary for 17 years. Her most memorable moments were spending time with volunteers at the annual book sales, collecting money for the Library. She always gave frank commentary at meetings and we will miss hearing them. 

Pat is also well known for other volunteer activities: as a driver for Meals on Wheels for 20 years, and as a counselor for HICAP, a program providing free information and assistance to Medicare enrollees, for 18 years.  

We, the Board Members of the El Cerrito Library, thank Pat for her many contributions to the Library!
