Abstract

Pat Pogue is an active member of the Shaker community. She was in charge of the Welcome Wagon for 37 years in Shaker Heights until 1999 when the national organization did away with their community representatives. Pogue loved welcoming newcomers so much that she began a program called the Welcome Basket where she fulfilled the same duties of the Welcome Wagon, but under a different name. She tells stories of her Welcome Wagon experiences and how the organization is an asset to the Shaker Community. Pogue is also a member of the Plymouth Church of Shaker Heights. Along with her Welcome Wagon antidotes, she shares the history of the church's origins and current involvement in the community.
