Patti O’Brien, Director

Patti O’Brien is in her 8th year as a board member and is currently the organization’s secretary.  I previously held the position of Vice President and, Treasurer and Secretary.

I am the third generation of Charlotte residents in my family. My husband Tim and I joined the Charlotte Community Association in 1975 as soon as we became new homeowners.  We love the fantastic views from our backyard overlooking the Turning Point Park turn basin and all the wildlife and serenity that it offers.  I have retired from 30 plus years as the Office Manager of Flower City Glass.

My husband Tim (Charlotte High School Class of 1968) and I have been empty nesters for quite a while.  We have 2 daughters and sons in law and 4 grandchildren with #5 on the way this spring.

My goal as an active board member of the CCA is to make Charlotte as welcome to new families as it was to us 47 years ago.
