Mayor Jim Watson today announced that the Mayor’s City Builder Award has been presented to Patricia “Pat” Clark for her outstanding contributions and devotion to her community.

Mayor Watson and Beacon Hill-Cyrville Ward Councillor Tim Tierney presented Pat with the award at the Ottawa General Hospital Tuesday where she is undergoing treatment.

A softball organizer in Pineview, Cyrville and Carson Grove, a member of the Gloucester Recreation Development Organization, and a board member of the Community Centres Board for the development of facilities, Pat also served as the Councillor for Cyrville on Gloucester Council from 1992-2000. She served as Executive Director of the Gloucester Fair and was devoted to it for decades.

Pat has always been willing to do unrecognized behind-the-scenes work and she has been a tireless advocate for those she believes have been treated unfairly. Her determination, perseverance and commitment have made her community a better place to live.
