A special ceremony was held Saturday afternoon to honor the memory of Pat Dunn.
Pat passed away on Jan. 1 of this year and the Starke County Youth Club planted a tree in his memory. He was a great supporter of the youth of the community and was reflective in his support of the Starke County Youth Club. A plaque was also donated which was placed in front of the tree by Pat’s wife, Karen. Pat had been a board member of Kankakee Valley Broadcasting, Inc. and served as the General Manager of the station from 2009 until his death. He was always a driving force here at the station and continues to be in the staff’s thoughts as the work days go by.
Many of Pat’s family were in attendance at the ceremony as well as many of the staff and board members at WKVI.
The tree was planted in the front yard at WKVI.
