In addition to her Delicado membership , Hattie is active in the community.  She is a member of Ebenezer Baptist Church where’s she served as a Trustee, Director of Music, Choir Director and Organist through the years.  Currently, Hattie serves as chairman of Ebenezer’s audit committee, member of the church board of administration, member of Ebenezer’s HVAC team and helps to keep  the congregation informed of any updates to the Sunday service or other church events through telecommunication.   Hattie still finds the time to serve both the Richmond-Henrico Retired Teachers Association and AARP #390 chapter.  She is also a proud member of  Richmond Alumnae Association  of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and directed  the Delta Pearls Choir for several years.  Her service at Ebenezer and the other organizations are yet more examples of her care and concern for her community.
