Pat Copa Volunteer Award

“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”

      Elizabeth Andrew



At OFFF, a hard working volunteer is awarded the Pat Copa award. The award is given in memory of Pat Copa who defined “dependable” and “thorough”, and who worked tirelessly as an OFFF volunteer.

2017 Anna Guillemot from the Fiber Arts Division. Anna is a bright ray of sunshine in our department! She is always eager to assist new entrants in submitting their works of art for our competition. During the rest of the year Anna spends many hours teaching knitting and helping knitters at the Beaverton Lodge Senior Center.

2014 Bob and Betsy Baily were the competition curators for the Fiber Arts Division of OFFF. These wonderful individuals create beautiful displays which, as Bob says, “treat each piece of art as being very special”.
