Saluting Our Hero

Sat., Aug. 11, 11:15 on the lawn

Join us as we salute Immanuel’s Own SPC Christopher Patterson as the Chris Patterson Memorial Foundation Motorcycle Ride passes our campus. Join us on the lawn by 11:15 AM and help us salute our hero and support his family and friends. Contact Lori St. Vincent at 630 879 7163 or via email with questions and visit or email Bob Patterson for ride details.

Chris, a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church and a 2009 graduate of West Aurora High School, gave his life in service to our country while serving with the Indiana National Guard in Afghanistan on Jan. 6, 2012.

Chris loved the performing arts. He was an actor, singer, and musician who performed with various groups. The Chris Patterson Memorial Foundation will split proceeds from the ride between the Freedom Farm for Vets in Wadsworth and the Performing Arts at Immanuel Lutheran Church and School. Let’s show our appreciation for Christopher’s sacrifice and for his family’s generosity.
