EABA Member: Andrea Graziano
As a resident of North Versailles since 1966, Andrea felt it was important to become involved in the Community. The political scene seemed interesting, so she was off and running. First, she volunteered by driving voters to the polls, etc. In 1984 she was elected as the Democratic Committee Woman for the 4th Ward and in 1986 she was installed as the First Woman Commissioner to serve in North Versailles. That position was held for two terms (8 yrs).
From 1986 -1992 she was a member of the EABA Board as the Government Body Rep/Liaison for the Township. In 1993 Andrea became an EABA member as an Avon Independent Sales Rep. She has remained a board member for 24 years. On August 28, 1992, Andrea served as Mistress Ceremonies for the ground breaking ceremony of the Naval and Marine Corps Reserve Readiness Center and on September 18, 1993 she was a featured speaker for the Dedication Ceremony.
Seeing the completion and taking part in the ribbon cutting ceremony was a dream come true for Andrea. Because of her active support and strong belief in the U.S. Marine Corps, especially during her son’s five year tour of duty, Andrea was nicknamed “Mamma Marine.” In her spare time she is very active in her Church, Choir and is Chairperson of the Board of Parkview Community FCU along with selling Avon.
