“Aunt Minnie Miles” says she’s not very distinguished; nonetheless, Pat Cash has been named 2016 Distinguished Citizen, an honor bestowed by the Mountain View Area Chamber of Commerce.
Pat has served in many positions throughout the community – sometimes in character as Aunt Minnie – but always with the goal of building tourism in the community. She believes tourism is important because it helps the community by creating jobs and bringing people to town.
“It’s a beautiful place and I’m proud I live here. Mountain View is one of Arkansas’ best kept secrets. Once people come here they want to come back,” she explained.
She will be presented with the award during the Chamber's annual banquet Thursday, March 24, at the Ozark Folk Center's Skillet Restaurant.
