This activity led her to become passionately involved in the International Cities of Peace movement. Recently, she was instrumental in getting a peace pole installed in Sound Beach. She then joined the steering committee for the Rotary Club’s “Corridor of Peace” Project, which seeks to make the Route 25 and Route 25A corridor an International City of Peace. Patrice is also a member of the Rotary Club and a long-time supporter of Hope Children’s Fund and Sound Beach Property Owners. She volunteers as co-beach commissioner, oversees maintenance at the East Beach, and runs the trash and treasure event among her many volunteer efforts in the community.The SBCA is a domestic, not-for-profit organization founded in 1974 and dedicated to advancing activities that improve the quality of life in Sound Beach.
