Each month, Burritt on the Mountain recognizes a volunteer who goes above and beyond to assist our guests and staff.
The March 2020 Volunteer of the Month award goes to Sandy River Ramblers.
The Sandy River Ramblers is a local string band whose repertoire consists primarily Appalachian-Old Time and Celtic tunes. Members of the group include Don Evans (fiddle), Paul Turner (guitar), Pat Long (mandolin), Nancy Richardson (fiddle) and Karen Falkowski (banjo).
The band has played at Burritt for about 15 years, sharing their musical talents and adding to the mountain ambiance. They can often be heard playing causally on the porches of Balch, Chandler, and Meals Houses on weekend afternoons, and has also supported multiple school and special events at Burritt.
Thank you, Sandy River Ramblers for sharing your valued time and talents to entertain Burritt guests and staff alike. You all are very much appreciated!

Joe is a new volunteer and has been a huge help to Burritt. He has logged almost 600 hours since June 2019. He has been a part of the Burritt Brigade on Monday’s fixing and repairing and the rest of the week he jumps in whenever he sees a need and is willing to help everyone. We thank Joe for his valued time and abilities to solve some of Burritt’s operational challenges. His service has positively impacted Burritt at every corner and in between.
