October 13, 2022
June Defoe was honored as Burgermeister during festivities at the Hohenwald Oktober Heritage Festival held last weekend. Former librarian Pat Choate was recognized with the History and Heritage Award.
Pat and her family moved to Lewis County in 1972 and bought a generational family farm on the banks of Little Buffalo River in the Oak Grove Community.
Pat was a stay at home mom but with her five children all entering the Lewis County school system, she very shortly entered the job world in Lewis County and became the Directory/Librarian at Lewis County Public Library.
