Pat Anderson is one of our newer and younger members. She is not only enjoying the benefits of belonging to Mill Race Center, twice a week she can be found in the classroom teaching others to play the piano. When she’s not teaching, she is taking advantage of the fitness room, the Friday night programs, line dancing, and walks in the park. She is looking forward to maybe using the Wood Shop. She is interested in cartooning, tennis, and SwimAerobics.
She’s here because her engineer husband took a position with Cummins. They have two childen, 28 and 25 who are still in Raleigh. They recently bought a house with a big garage. The garage is because he is restoring a 1971 Jensen Intercep- tor (an English car for all of us who are not classic car buffs). They not only like the house, they are happy that there is no long commuting to work. They are quite impressed with how friendly a town Columbus is.
Pat majored in music at Pfeiffer University and her husband went to Virginal Tech. As well as teaching piano here, she gives private lessons in both piano and singing. She enjoys line dancing at Mike’s Dance Barn and exploring the shops in Nashville on the weekends.
We’re glad to have Pat with us. It looks like she’s mastered the art of living well. Here at Mill Race, like the rest of us, she knows she’s not getting older, she’s just getting better.
