Girl Scout Troop 5605 presented Downey's "Pete the Tailor" with a certificate of appreciation for his time and dedication to the troop.
"Pete Patsios owns a tailor shop here in Downey and he's the person we turn to sew on all the girls' patches as they earn them. Not only is he accommodating but he's sweet and kind to the girls and often refuses payment for his work. He's had to re-apply patches from the front to back on a moment's notice because one of the girl's mothers gave him the wrong instructions – with a smile on his face.
"He is a sweet person and true professional. Girl Scout Troop 5605 would truly appreciate if you could print this picture and print a story letting our community know how wonderful he is."
