Meet Patti Anderson, the Humane Society of the Lakes August volunteer of the month.

Patti volunteers for many of the organization's fundraising events, such as the Irish Fundraiser, Harley Raffle and ShelterFest. She also handles the collection and logging of donated We Care receipts as well as serves on the HSL Board.

Patti shared, "What I like best about volunteering is just knowing that HSL helps the cats and dogs find their forever homes. I have also enjoyed meeting a great group of people that share an interest in helping the homeless animals in our area."

Patti is married to Wayne (who also does some volunteering with HSL) and they have two Yorkies that are 12 years old. Patti retired in December of 2008 from Structural Materials in Fargo where she worked for 32 years. She and her husband then moved to their Detroit Lakes home permanently.

Her interests include golf, more golf, traveling, snowmobiling and gardening. She is enjoying her retirement with daily visits to her dad at the Frazee Care Center and of course helping the Humane Society of the Lakes.
