Pat Reimann moved into a home on Berwyn (with husband Michael and cats Macaroon and Diego) in February of 2020, and had joined the UMNA even before the moving van pulled up to the curb. Getting more involved in her neighborhood was one of her plans for post-retirement, although it was unexpected to find herself in a new neighborhood when the time came.
Although Pat is a native Texan, having been born in San Antonio, life as a dependent of an Air Force dad took her many places around the country and the world until she returned to Dallas in 1975, with brand new degrees in Speech Communication and Counseling and Guidance from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. Starting that year, and until summer of 2020, she worked at The Salvation Army of North Texas; first in various social services roles at the Carr P. Collins Center; and then as coordinator of the Angel Tree program for the five county Area Command.
As with many new to retirement Pat is looking forward to exploring new interests and activities, especially when pandemic conditions permit more freedom of movement. In the meantime she looks forward to getting to know more of the neighbors and neighborhood, and supporting its needs, through acceptably socially distanced means.
