The Pat Shoemaker
Pat on the Back Award
July 4, 1920 - October 18, l998
The Pat on the Back Award
is named to honor Pat Shoemaker and to recognize other
individuals who have given extraordinary, but often
unsung volunteer time in caring for the community.
A “pink lady” volunteer for the Boulder
Community Hospital for 28 years, Pat also produced
monthly original craft displays for the hospital.
Pat was the Boulder Community Hospital Outstanding
Volunteer of the Year in 1983 and was honored as the
Colorado Auxilian of the year in 1984. She was a homemaker
and the mother of two daughters, Linda Shoemaker of
Boulder and Judi Miller of Tucson, Arizona.
Potential nominees should embody Pat’s dedication and caring. A $1,000 award will be presented to the honoree to be directed to the nonprofit of his or her choice.
