The Patterson Township Historical Society met at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 17, at Patterson City Hall for its annual meeting.

Four officers were re-elected: Carol Scoles, president; Phil Breasher, vice president; Faye Hill, secretary; and Chris Dennis, treasurer.

In addition, Kevin Nelson was elected to the director position held by Joland Schut, who died in November.

Other directors are Linda Briggs, Chris Bingham, Burta Herger and Vivian Ratliff.

Appointed positions in the society include Ron Swift, curator of the museum in the Center Building; Bob Kimball, tour director; John V. Azevedo, historian; Lucie Field, Webmaster; and Ed Torrison, curator of large equipment.

Gustine native Pat Snoke, a member of the Gustine Historical Society, spoke to group members about her family history and ties to Patterson.

Snoke explained that as she studied her family history, she learned about the West Side. Snoke also discussed the Crows Landing Naval Air Base and the pioneer cemetery that is said to be located there.

Members of any club on the West Side who would like to share news about their group are invited to send email to news@pattersonirrigator.com, call 892-6187 or leave a note at the Patterson Irrigator offices, 26 N. Third St.
