Holmes Beach to honor ‘Ms. Duffy’

The Holmes Beach City Commission on Oct. 5 will name and dedicate the Holmes Beach city commission chambers in honor of Patricia A. Geyer.

There will be a meet-and-greet at 8:30 a.m., followed by a dedication at 9 a.m. at Holmes Beach City Hall, 5801 Marina Drive.

Geyer, who served 18 years on the city commission and was elected mayor from 1990-94, died May 1 at 80.

She also was the longtime owner and proprietress of Duffy’s Tavern, the Holmes Beach institution known for cold beers and hamburgers, and so was known by many Islanders as “Ms. Duffy.”
