Name: Eileen Kukish
How long have you lived in town? 27 years

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE
Place to eat: Luce Restaurant in Middletown
Place to visit: Block Island and the Thimble Islands which my husband and I recently discovered after living here many years
Fondest memories of town: The Memorial Day parades. I love the connection to history, the small town atmosphere of the community coming together
A recent accomplishment: That would have to be the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) program at Notre Dame. (Eileen took over as director of the Notre Dame RCIA team in 2010 and has done a superb job of helping adults learn about the Catholic faith and enter the Catholic Church as Catholic Christians.)
Any personal thoughts you’d like to share with Patch? I work to support my flower and gardening habit. I enjoy spending time in my yard gardening and watching all the creatures…birds, frogs and squirrels scampering around the yard
