Community Hero Spotlight: Doralee & Patrick Nolan

Each year Nantucket Bank asks members of the community to nominate local individuals and organizations that have had major impacts on their communities. The top 12 heroes are selected by a committee and featured in the following year’s Community Hero Calendar.



March 2018 Community Heroes

Doralee and Patrick Nolan, Nantucket residents since 1983, have spent the better part of the last two years making sure that the newly constructed V.F.W. not only remains open for Nantucket Veterans year-round, but continues to be viable and vibrant for years to come. Dedicated volunteers for too many island organizations to mention, this dynamic duo always makes time for others and has made cooking a monthly meal at the V.F.W. for local Veterans a welcomed tradition.


Each Community Hero is awarded $1,000 toward a charity of their choice. Doralee and Patrick Nolan are sending their $1,000 donation from the Blue Hills Bank Foundation to the Nantucket V.F.W.


Thank you, Doralee and Patrick, for your year-round dedication to Nantucket Veterans.
